    RESTORAN ŠADRVAN: EXCELLENT IN MOSTAR

    by DAO Updated Dec 2, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    Šadrvan is simply a great restaurant. It is just a few meters from the famous Mostar Bridge so you absolutely cannot miss it. I was greeted warmly outside and lead through what would be a great seating area outside (in summer) and into a warm interior. The décor is traditional and tasteful. My waiter was a great guy and everything just magically appeared. I knew I wanted to try the Bonian national dish - Ćevapi - as well as have a local beer. Interestingly the old beers listed were 'Beer 1' and 'Beer 2'. Seeing that Beer number 2 was more expensive I asked for it. The waiter rattled off 3 massive worldwide brands of beer. I looked horrified. He explained that Beer 1 was a list of Bosnian and nearby beers. I opted for a Sarajevo Beer. Fantastic choice! Very impressive.

    Then my food came to the table from the large wooden counter the waiters have to climb up to when food comes out of the kitchen. It was very well presented, was hot and fresh. Even the bread had just been baked. Ćevapi is essentially 8-10 small mince meat kebabs. They tasted absolutely fantastic.

    I only stopped here for lunch, but can definitely recommend this wonderful restaurant for any meal. They also have a very good looking bar upstairs. The dinning room is downstairs.

    Favorite Dish:
    I enjoyed the Ćevapi and a cold Sarajevo Beer.

    Some of the great things about Šadrvan:
    * The menus (and website) have great pictures off all the dishes to help you choose
    * Very professional service
    * Good prices and they accept Euros
    * Great location
    * Great local food, dishes, wines and beers
    * A warm and friendly atmosphere
    * You can make reservations on their website

    Coffee and tea

    When in Rome, do as the Romans do. In Bosnia and Herzegovina, THEY drink coffee. It is the backbone of social life. The traditional coffee is 'bosanska kafa'. It is similar to what the rest of the world calls Turkish coffee, and it is served with oddly-shaped sugar cubes and 'rahatlokum' (Turkish delight). By now, espresso and white coffee are available everywhere in towns and cities. In town, an espresso will cost you 1 KM. The other coffees are more expensive. In villages, you may well get your Bosanska kafa for 0.5 KM. There is a tea drinking tradition as well. You’ll enjoy your tea most if you drink what the locals drink. Don't ask for black tea with milk. People here don't drink it, don't know about it and don't serve it well. Try the herbal teas instead. There are a great many types and they generally have a very nice fragrance. They are often organic and come straight from the forest.

    Beer

    Local beer is cheap. The first word learned by many foreign visitors is pivo. If you like beer, this word is crucial to your trip. A half-liter bottle costs 1 KM in the shop and only 2 or 3 KM in restaurants and bars. Other imports are available everywhere. They are reasonably priced, but of course more expensive than local beers without really tasting any better.

    Spirits

    Made from plums, pears, apples or grapes, the local spirits are amazing. They are strong, very strong, with alcohol levels commonly exceeding 40 percent. They are drunk at all times of the day and at all times of the year. Sljivovica (plum) or kruska (pear) are found more in Bosnia. Loza, made of grapes, is the specialty of Herzegovina and Dalmatia (which share the same climate and topsoil and therefore produce very similar grapes). There are a few brand names that you will find everywhere, but the best spirits are home-made.

    Eagles Nest: Hangin' with the fly boys

    by american_tourister Updated Feb 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Eagles Nest is the coffee shop at the Aviation wing. I go there from time to time to meet with aviation personnel when we have minor issues to discuss. It is a great hangout for an aviation buff like me. We get lots of foreign military traffic and the pilots always like to talk about their birds.

    Favorite Dish: Mocha Coffee. A lighter mix than Bosnian coffee with some chocolate flavor and some whipped cream. Its awfully bad for a diet but boy o' boy is it good.

    Ah, the veranda!
