Absolute best in Banja Luka - large portions, delicious meals (the price is bit higher but it`s definetly worth it). Three friends and I went for a dinner, mainly we ate veal and lamb with salads and soups. Enjoyed every bite.

Very nice ambience. Service is on the highest levels. The meals are well prepared. Especially if you are in favor of BBQ. They have some very good wines. I may recommend a bottle of "Jungic Winery" white wine from the town and municipality of "Celinac". Very delightfull evening it was..
