It is just of the main pedestrian street. They offer very good food, however waiters are not overly interested in guests other than the usual procedure. During the nice days they keep tables also outside in a small yard shared with some other restaurants. Barhana beef steak (27 BAM) is an interesting choice, comes with nicely prepared beef steak (not the large one but enough for a meal) with a lot of grilled vegetables. Beef wok (15 BAM) comes with a lot of rice, not a bad addition, however personally I would put less rice. they serve homemade bread, very tasty. We had very good red wine, Carska Blatina (35 BAM) but they also have other wines. List, however, is short. desserts are their weak spot, they offer pizza with Nutella and bananas and eventualy baklava. You better go somewhere else if you have a sweet tooth. the yoffer 3-4 different soups (like carrot & ginger), worth to try. Restaurant is simple with wooden tables and chairs and wood all over, so nothing to impress from that point of view. Basically, people come here for food and to talk to people they came with or sitting by the next table.

On our last day in Sarajevo we wanted to try local food other than the well known cevapi and burek. Barhana was close to our hotel (hidden in a valley) so decided to give it a try. The first impression was not as good (smell from various sources and not only food) but the atmosphere was good and welcoming so we decided to stay. We have chosen a table upstairs ( a bit later the place become full) and ordered food from the local Bosnian dishes menu. The service was not particularly outstanding but quick and efficient. The food also, big portion and tasty. I loved every piece of the decoration, especially the wooden style. Fortunately there were not too many people smoking when we were there so the air quality was also acceptable. Recommended.

When you are looking to find a place with good atmosphere and good boiled wine on a cold winter night, Barhana is place to go.

Zero stars if possible. Food was good but they have trash stuffs who verbal abused me, attacted me and spitted saliva on my face. Cops are investigating this matter. DO NOT COME here if you don't want to put your life in danger.

If you'd like to change your plate a bit from a local cuisine in the heart of the Baščaršija, with fantastic Italian food, the best pizza in town, amazing selection of local spirits and local craft beer Gelender, this is the place.
