    Local Food in Pretty Setting

    by Cockleshell Written Oct 26, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is a great choice of restaurants in Mostar, in both the Old Town and New Town. The only issue is not having enough time to try them all. I enjoyed good local food at this terraced restaurant along the river with a view of the Bridge. Nice place any time of day but especially so at sunset.

    Pod Lipom: Try Solgan Dolma

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I highly recommend trying the stuffed onions. (if anyone has this recipe ..please forward it to me) The veal stew was also very tasty. This was one of the best dining experiences of my whole trip. The meal was delicious with service to match and a very reasonable price in a very pleasant setting in Sarajevo Old Town.

    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

    Boat on the river: Floating restaurants

    by croisbeauty Updated Feb 6, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are many restaurants floating on the rivers, like this one in Banja Luka which floats on the river of Vrbas.

    Favorite Dish: You might be very pleasantly surrprised with the B&H cuisine. It is a kind of mixture of the Croatian, Serbian and Turkish cuisine.
    Almost in every restaurant you can enjoy in:
    - grilled mixed meat
    - broached lamb
    and more importantly, the meat is fresh and genuine.
    The most authentic, and surely the best loco dish is so called "Bosanski lonac", a cooked meat of three different kinds with vegetables.

    Sadrvan (Mostar)

    by MichaelFalk1969 Updated May 14, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In regard to restaurants, in Mostar one is spoiled by choice. So many restaurants have picked absolute beauty spots with great panoramic views of the Old Bridge that you really can`t go wrong. My absolute favourite was the Restaurant Sadrvan (="fountain"). After you cross the bridge to the western riverbank, it is on the left side (the place with the fountain). The location is most beautiful, the service is impeccable (my waitress explained patiently the menu and gave good advice), the price-quality ratio is excellent, and the food was delicious. Leave some room for the gorgeous Balaklava as dessert!

    Morica Han: Good coffee with locals

    by toggle Written Oct 13, 2009

    The cafe inside Morica Han is a very good place to have a traditional Bosnian(Turkish) coffee. Where you can observe locals and have some idea about Bosnian people. The courtyard of Han is a very good place to have some rest and relax. It is cool in summer and not very crowded.

    We had coffe and tried tufahija (a kind of dessert). Both were very good. Prices are good as it is everywhere in Bosnia.

    Burek

    by etfromnc Updated May 7, 2009

    Burek is flaky pastry filled with veggies, cheese and/or meat, sometimes with
    fruit (usually apples and cinnamon) and which is more sweet (desert-like), than savory.

    Burek's origins are Turkish, and burek is very popular in Macedonia, Serbia, Bosnia, and Greece, but Greeks won't admit that it is Turkish (You probably know about all of the animosity between the Turks and Greeks which arose primarily early in the 20th Century.) so they call it Tiropita.
    Tiro=Cheese
    pita=pie

    You can have mince meat filling, leeks, onions, feta cheese, egg, onions, spinach, sauerkraut, potatoes, or various combinations of these fillers.
    Meat, potatoes, and cheese are said to be more typical of Bosnia, while the others are more common in Macedonia, Serbia, Greece, and Turkey.
    Bosnians and Macedonians often have burek in the morning for breakfast on the go, with a cold glass of yogurt.
    A very dear, although still unmet, Macedonian VT friend currently living in the UK, helped me with the details on burek and closed her e-mail with,
    "I miss that very much, and every morning when I am in Macedonia, I have 1/4 of the pie. It is a good, healthy, and delicious start of your day."
    My most sincere thanks to Valentina, and I couldn't agree with her more.

    SARAJEVO BASAR

    by SKUL-ONE Written Aug 8, 2006

    I felt important to go to a Restaurant wich was frequented by local citizens and wich wasn't the first I have seen. A place you wouldn't realize first. I found a really friendly traditional Restaurant in the centre of the Bazar and a another smaller one with some incredible Bureks in the surrounding area. Look for oldfashioned interioir and you will be happy.
    I went after some old men, who I think have the best nose for eating and dining like a king.

    Favorite Dish: Burek and Cevapi
    and bosanski cava

    fresh cooked corn with salt

    Vrbas restaurant: Banja Luka - a very good restaurant, indeed!

    by diamond7 Updated Aug 6, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You have a very good restaurant just near the river. Its name is Vrbas (just the same name of the river).
    It is sited in front of castle, but in the opposite bank of the river.
    The quality of meals are really very good, and the quantity? well, you can?t eat all that food, surely! But the big surprise is, when you finishing to eat, the servant gives you (in a plastic packet) all the meat of your table that you didn?t eat !!!
    In resume: this restaurant is very nice, with very good meals, well sited, and is not expensive!!!
    .

    Most Restaurants there are so many to choose from!: Try the local food such as Burek and Cevapici.

    by tylercdurden2004 Updated Feb 4, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is real blue collar food at its best! There is nothing fancy but its flavourful and very filling. I recommend trying the meat Burek with the garlic yogurt sauce simply one of the best meals I have had and at 70p ($1) for a portion a real bargain. Cevapici is equally scarfed and at an equally light dip into the wallet. The Samon bread used with Cevapici is brilliant as well. Coffee through out the Balkans is done properly (strong and sweet and smooth).

    Some foodstalls in Mostar: Don't Miss the famous Bosnian Pies

    by lonely_traveller Written Jan 29, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Bosnian meat pies are absolutely delicious! It is like a long fried pastry roll. Three different kinds of fillings are usually available, including meat, spinach or potatoes. You can get it in any snack shops around the old Mostar town. It is cheap (1 pound or 3KM (Convertible Marks) and delicious. Don't forget to order a cup of real Turkish coffee to go with it!

    Favorite Dish: Bosnian Meat Pies, Turkish Coffee
