The service was fast, the lamb was good but the price was not acceptable, 1kg is 30 euros!
Compared to price and quality we had better lamb in Greece village.

The meat is just perfect.
Honestly, lamb is not one of my favourite meals and I was sceptic before I have tried it, but I can say that this is delicious, fresh, young meat and lovely prepared. Well done! Bravo for the service as well, they are fast and friendly.

I was planning to come to this restaurant for 2 years with strongly advise of my colleagues who came before. This is the best restaurant with premium taste of different kind of lamb comes from 2.000 m height mountain ⛰. Lamb chop “kuzu pirzola” and tandoor“tandir” my favorites, excellent big pink tomato and Raki .

according to web-collected information I traveled additional 6 km Mrzenci to taste "best lamb in the world" . Big expectation was the main reason for our disappointment. Firstly- there was no any soup. There were only two kinds of meat (slow roasted lamb and calf) . There was no potato- garni that is traditioanly slow-roasted and served together with the meat ) The meat was 1stQ , but ripped with a lot of obviously seen VEGETA ( Na-glutaminat based spice) . The meat was too expansive (20eur/kilo). I ordered 500-600gr and and they served (and charged) more than 1 kg . The salad was too simple, but tomato was best ever .Service was good, restaurant was crowded , WC not too clean. I visited a lot of much better and cheaper places with slow roasted lamb in SEE region

Oh what a treat! Super friendly service, fresh and tasty dishes. And then there is The lamb. The lamb is worth traveeling for from wherever you are. Unsurpassed lamb fress off the spit. Pairs well with local wine spritz! Just great!
