Restaurant in the Old Town, good view of the Old Bridge from the comfortable terrace. Interesting menu, spinach pizza for vegetarian Mrs Bonio and plenty of grilled meat options for me!
Friendly and inexpensive, enjoyed our evening here.
Two visits here for us, that is unusual. Friendly and helpul, lovely outdoor area under some shady trees on a warm day and great food.
Vegetable plate very much appreciated by Mrs B (twice - different each time too) and, of course, plenty of local favourites for me... and a first chance to try Sarajevska beer - pretty good as well.
Enjoyed ourselves very much here.
The food was excellent and the service as well. Prices very moderate - €14 for a huge main course, with french fries, a salad, a beer and a glass of wine.
The main course was a mixed grill (a steak, cevapcici, liver, chicken, something on a skewer and a spicy sausage) - way too much for one person. I ate about 2/3.
The place is there for tourists, but still fine.
Favorite Dish: The pepper + aubergine salad - ajvar in Bosnian. The two ingredients were pureed, much like some Turkish meze/salads. Deelicious!
I can't remember the exact name of the restauant, but once you enter into the old town, it's off to the left of the street. It is all outdoor dining, and there are a couple of stairs leading down to the restaurant.
Favorite Dish: The Burek was awesome
This small restaurant is located on the western side of the Neretva, just a short walk from the Stari Most on Onescukova. A great value restaurant with beautiful outdoor dining area, complete with small wood framed water fountain. As we were on a tight bdget we didn't eat in many restaurants in Mostar but we treated ourselves one night to a good meal. Turns out the bill didn't end up being very expensive anyway at around €15 for two mains and four beers.
Ate late in the evening and the atmosphere of the restaurant was very relaxing with the nearby Radobolja River audilble.
Very enjoyable meal in a comfortable, relaxing environment and good service.
Favorite Dish: Has to be the Cevapcici. A stalwarth of Balkan cusine, it is originally claimed to be Sarajevan and the best is to be had in BiH. The barbequed beef and lamb meatball/sausages are served in a delicious bread which is like a cross between a pitta and a naan bread. The Cevapcici is usually served with Kajmak (like a soft cottage cheese) and onion. Very filling meal which is available in 5, 7, or 10 piece portions. Needless to say I had the 10!
My girlfiend had the Grilled chicken with salad and was also impressed. Nearly forgot to mention the delicious Bosnian bread served with our meal.
The city of Blagaj with the source of the Buna river is situated about 10 km southeast of Mostar. It seems to be very popular for eating out, as many large restaurants can be found here.
We chose Restaurant Vrelo for our dinner, due to its excellent location on the river bank. Numerous tables are located outside on types of artificial concrete islands enabling everybody to dine just by the water.
They serve a large variety of international as well as local Bosnian meals. Fish dishes, especially trout from the Buna river, are among the specialities.
I ordered a beefsteak (Biftek) with egg, french fries and vegetables, which was good. To drink I had a local beer: Sarajevsko pivo.
The beefsteak cost 16 KM and the beer was with only 2,50 KM surprisingly cheap. Our waiter was attentive and helpful. Payment was possible in both Convertible Mark (KM) and Euro. The latter was even calculated at a very fair rate.
After our arrival in Mostar in the late morning we were quite hungry. As we had already eaten many Bosnian dishes in Sarajevo, we felt it was about time for a pizza.
On the way from our hostel to the old town we passed through the pedestrianised Brace Feija Street which seems to be one of the main shopping streets in Mostar. There we spotted the Pizzeria ABC which looked inviting to us.
The restaurant is located on the upper floor of the building and has a small outdoor terrace at street level. Although it was hot outside we took a seat inside at the window from where we had an excellent view of the street.
The restaurant is air conditioned and nicely decorated. The menu offers a wide range of pizzas as well as other Italian dishes.
I opted for a Pizza Mozarella and a natural lemonade. Everything was very tasty and with 8 KM for the pizza and 2,5 KM for the lemonade reasonably priced.
Due to its location slightly outside of the touristy old town, the Pizzeria ABC seemed to be frequented by quite a few locals.
We ate twice here. It has a great view of the bridge and the river. Around the corner from Sadrvon , it is less expensive. It is an example of the hard times that Mostar still suffers. If this were anywhere else in Europe perched on an ancient old wall with such a view , you would expect to pay 6 times as much for dinner...but here dinner for two was about $15.00.
This is such an incredible place for its ambiance. It is a 300+ year old stone building with a view of the OLD BRIDGE from its terrace seats. The food was just OK , the trout was a good pick, (....I can't recommend the risotto )but it was a 5 star for its location alone.
This is a good quality rstaurant with wonderful food at a good price. The best deal is the plate of the day, which includes a soup, sald, main dish and dish and dessert for a low set price. This is usually at lunch time only. The fish was excellent and the grilled meats.
I can't say I like the stuffed vegetables though...the meat tasted raw!!
Restoran Europa is nicely arranged and had a nice menu but unfortunately, they would not accept our little dog and we had to find another place.
It is close to motel Kriva Cuprija, on the other side of the bridge, so we went and tried the restaurant of motel Kriva Cuprija.
As it was already late, once we got our room at Pansion rose, we headed to the old city for dinner and the easiest was to go back to motel Kriva Cuprija for its restaurant.
We found again our Spanish speaking friend and … we were the only one in the dining room and he was the only one to cook and to serve.
Favorite Dish: The food was not outstanding but fair.
The muscalica was fair but I had eaten more tasty ones in other places.
Grilled lamb was fair too. Sure that cooking cannot be outstanding when there are only two customers in a restaurant!
May be the food is better when there are more customers and a true cook in the kitchen!
Carnivores eat well in Mostar, meat is central to every meal. Vegetarians may well get tired of spinach and cheese, the most usual combination for meatless dishes. The influence is strongly Turkish, with menus featuring lots of stuffed vegetable dishes and filo-wrapped fillings. Local lamb, terrific tomatoes, crispy cucumbers, salty farmhouse cheeses, yummy yoghurt - everything tastes so fresh with good gutsy flavours and generous serves. It may not be fine dining but it is wonderfully satisying and combined with a setting either overlooking the river or in a shady courtyard, its very conducive to lingering with a cold beer on a hot afternoon or another glass of wine on a balmy evening.
We've eaten lunch at Sadrvan (on the road leading to up to the bridge, on the west bank) both times we've been to Mostar, enjoying both the food and the relaxed garden atmosphere. Babilon, set on terraces overlooking the bridge (again on the west side) is rather more upmarket - and correspondingly expensive - is lovely in the evening as the sun sets and the lights come up.
My friend and I ate at Restoran Teatar one lunchtime during a trip to Mostar in May 2007.
This large restaurant is located on the banks of the Neretva river, with outdoor tables on a terrace that offers fantastic views of the town's most famous sight - the old bridge.
The hillside on which the restaurant is located houses dozens of other restaurants and cafes, all offering the same selling point - their views of the bridge. I was certainly not going to leave Mostar without eating at one of the restaurants with a bridge view.
We took a seat at an outdoor table and scrutinised the menu (available in Bosnian and English), while watching the crowds gather on the bridge to witness the famous bridge divers. During the course of our meal, we were fortunate enough to see two people jump from the bridge (and countless others back out at the last moment!).
The restaurant offers a tourist menu for just 14 KM (7 Euros / 5 GBP), consisting of meat, fish, chips, salad, coffee and ice cream. However this option wasn't available at the time we were dining there.
The main menu offers the same choice as most other restaurants in Mostar - a selection of meat dishes (cevapi meat rolls, veal, sausages, grilled chicken), fish dishes (trout and squid), salads, chips, vegetables and desserts (ice cream and baklava).
The service was friendly and efficient and the waiter spoke good English.
Favorite Dish: I opted for:
Grilled chicken and chips - Price: 15 KM (approx 5 GBP)
A large plate of grilled chicken breast, served with lots of chips. The meat was good quality and very well cooked. The meal was accompanied by complimentary Bosnian bread (nice flat round breadrolls) and a spicy tomato-based salsa dip.
Lemon tea - Price: 1.5 KM (approx 0.50 GBP)
A cup of refreshing lemon tea with plenty of sugar.
Good food and impressive views of the bridge from the outdoor terrace!
My friend and I visited Cevabdzinica kod Bahre one evening during a visit to Mostar in May 2007.
This small cafe is located on the edge of Trg Musala-Vila Neretva, an atmospheric square in Mostar's old town, close to the Neretva river.
Some buildings around the edge of the square still show scars of the damage they suffered during the 1990s Balkans war, minarets tower above these buildings and on the horizon the imposing mountains overlook the square. There are water fountains in the square, children play football on small lawns and throngs of people enjoy an evening stroll through the square en route to the river or the centre of town.
So, on a warm spring evening, we sat at an outside table at Cevabzinica kod Bahre and enjoyed a cold beer while watching this activity go by. The cafe itself is little more than a hut, but it offers half a dozen wooden tables out front and benches covered with woollen blankets.
There is a limited food menu, including the usual grilled meat dishes (especially cevapi meat rolls) and a reasonable selection of hot and cold drinks.
We paid 2 KM (approx. 0.70 GBP) for a cold bottle of Sarajevsko beer.
