We stumbled upon it about midday and booked a table for that night with the lovely man who was working there. The food we had eaten on previous days had been average and the service wasn't great, but 'To Be' completely turned... More

We really enjoyed our homecooked style meals, I had a vegetable risotto, my partner had chicken in sauce with vegetables and potatoes. A great example of wonderful Bosnian hospitality, really friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Thank you!

The proprietor welcomed us warmly and cooked us delicious food. This was a very personalised service by a Bosnian who experienced the privations of the siege.

I was alone today in a small cosy restaurant To be. My lunch was spectacular. I had a chicken soup as an apetiser, and pepersteak as a main course. It was so delicius.The service was super. For desert I had fresh homemade apple pie. It was great cold and fresh.I highly recommend this lovely place :-)

I met some friends and took them here and name the same vegetarian risotto and it was incredible. Even the thought of it makes me happy, a friend I was with said it was the... More
