The "Taurus" Inn is located 100m from the Old Bridge. It used to be a mill on Radoblja River. "Taurus" offers a wide choice of specialties: sea food, fish and meat as well as the most renowned Herzegovinian and Dalmatinian wines "Zilavka", "Blatina", "Postup", "Dingac"...
Enjoy in nice terrace and a view to very nice Radoblja River and Kriva Cuprija (Crooked Bridge) which is just next by.
Favorite Dish: I took mixed meat. It was a lot of different kinds of meat prepared on the grill, served with potatoes and vegetables. I think that there was almost kilogram meat in the portion. And it's not expensive. Just 15 Convertible Marks (1,95 KM for 1 Euro).
Another old mill rearranged in restaurant. Nice few from the terrace on Crooked Bridge and Radoblja River makes the restaurant more exotic. Inside, it also looks very nice.
Favorite Dish: Clams are fantastic but expensive. 80 KM (1,95 KM = 1 Euro) for kilogram but they are fresh. Wine, "Zilavka", the most popular Herzegovinian white wine. Only 35 KM for 0.75 liter bottle.
Here's a shot of the outside of the restaurant. The word Konoba, I gathered, means something like "an old-time, local restaurant" and that description certainly fits this place. If you are visiting the famous Stari Most (Old Bridge) which will reopen in the summer of 2004, you'll find this restaurant just behind it at one end of the smaller, Aslant Bridge (Kriva Cuprija).
This place was great. First of all, it's easy to find next to the Aslant Bridge (the mini Stone Bridge) in the Old Town. It's a tiny little stone house that is kept warm by a raging wood fireplace. The wooden furnishings add to the warmth of the room.
Favorite Dish: I ordered a river fish that I think was trout. It turned out to be two whole fish, grilled with olive oil and some light herbs and served over potato wedges and with some fresh tomatoes. It was absolutely delicious and very simple. The bread that was served was a much higher quality loaf than I was used to getting at most places in the region. I also had a good house red wine.
With Mostar's historic roots linked to both Turkey and Austria, it's no surprise that you'll have no trouble finding coffeehouses around town. I stopped at one just across from the post office (Posta) called Caffe Grande and also at another on the cobblestone street that runs parallel to the eastern side of the Neretva River near the Old Bridge (and just across from a tourist agency). The coffee was good and quite cheap.
There are so many different restaurants and cafés in the town. As you can imagine I was well in need of a coffee after a long night travelling and especially as it was a rainy day. First stop was a café on the main street in the old town. Second stop was in an Italian café near the old bridge with a great view of the people walking up and down the hill to look at the bazaar.
We always got friendly service and everyone spoke either English, German or Italian.
Favorite Dish: When it comes to coffee then cappuccino is the same in any language! Try the cevapcici (spicy meat sticks with salad and fries usually with bread). In the evening we ate all types of local meats, cheese, curled up strips of meat, stuffed peppers and stuffed vine leaves. All very tasty and with very unpronouncable names.
The banks of the river are flanked by terraces with cafés and restaurants. They're all decent quality, and reasonably priced.
Favorite Dish: A Hercegovine Odrezak: veal with soft cheese and egg - a local speciality. If you object to veal, then a beef equivalent if often available.
We ate very good local foods. Service was good too. Prices was normal.
Favorite Dish: Mixt plate and Cevapcici meatballs
In Mostar and entire B&H, if you ask for burek, dont worry you will have a great taste. Pastry with spinach or cheese or meat (burek) choose your option and enjoy your burek.
Local food: roasted steaks, cevapi, pljeskavica etc. Nice surrounding: the building was built of stone, little streams of the waterfall erect next to you table!
Restaurant "Maksumic" is located just across "Lovacki Dom". It is cheaper of it but - "At Gojko's" is "At Gojko's". The kilogram of lamb coasts 20 Convertible Mark (1,95 KM = 1 Euro).
