Wonderful cevapcici, but really wonderful (I don't eat meat in Italy) for a price incredibly low. A MUST in Sarajevo. Assolutamente da provare, magnifici cevapcici, detto da una persona che non mangia carne in Italia.

They have the best cevapi in the world!!! If you are in Sarajevo you have to try it. Also try it with some kajmak or home made yogurt it's delicious. Prices are very afordable. The only thing is that this place is very crowded so when you finish with your meal you have to leave the place right away so... More

A small place with a very, very delicious meatballs special to Bosnia. They only have köfte (meatballs) which come in 5, 10 & 15 pcs in one portion for a very reasonable price. Definitly a must to go place.

Quick, cheap and yummy and even a 15 option for those with a bigger appetite. We were served quickly and fresh hot food arrived within minutes even with a free second bread. Excellent value too.

We visited the cevabdzinica on New Year's day around 3 p.m. and it was packed. So the waitress took us to one of the neigbourhood restaurants where we ordered. The service was incredibly fast as we got our meal in 2 minutes!!! It was delicious and pretty cheap. A very entertaining experience!

This place is making the best Cevapi in Sarajevo. It's a bit difficult to get a table because it's so famous but it's possible. You should definitely try their special cevapi. Recommended place

Thank Almir V
