It was the first cevapi that I ever had in Sarajevo and I loved it. I had 10 portion one with some "Kajmak", kind of a cream, but it is not a milk cream I guess. The portions are big and it was 7 KM, less than 4 euro. One thing I like about Balkan restaurants, they bring the receipt... More

Small place. No kajmak included in the price. Chevaps are very dry but cheap. You can not order beer here.

Very good cevapcici, but hard to find table to eat. In most of the day people are waiting outside to get a table

Excellent čevapi. There was a taste of charcoal that i disliked but since I've only been there the one time I'm not sure if it's like this all the time. The place was completely full which suggests good quality, but had I known about the charcoal taste I would have skipped my visit. Portion sizes are 5, 10 or 15... More

This is excellent place for all travellers with an appetite for top-notch local food. The "ćevapi" was moist and delicious, bread fresh, and the "kajmak" was the creamiest, most flavourful soft cheese I've ever tasted. Highly recommended!!

We had ćevapi there on new year, place was very crowded. You have to wait in line, or eat outside. Staff is very efficient. Meat is great.

We have been advised by a local person to check this place out. Well it definitely worth it. First thing its cheap! Secondly its quite good. You need to try this place if you are in Sarajevo. Don't forget to ask for Kajmak with the cevapi.

Thank Botond A
