The food is so typical for Sarajevo and almost prepared in the same manner!
I was instantly reminded of BiH!!

“Beware of the meat sweats!”
Reviewed 2 July 2013

Our second trip to Maribor in a few days and we had a local host that took us to this restaurant. He reserved the table and ordered ahead. He wanted us to have traditional Bosnian and Sarajevo food. We had one meat platter of each for four people, which was way, way too much for lunch (and dinner)! But everything, including the special bread was just excellent. I can't remember the name of the meat that has something like salami and cheese inside of it, but it was fantastic. And the chicken was so moist and tasty and I usually avoid chicken when traveling (too much of that at home). The "meat on a stick" also, thankfully, had some peppers so that we could keep the meat sweats at bay for a few minutes longer. And our service was excellent.

Note to TripAdvisor: Don't list this as Turkish food.

“Best kebapcici in Maribor.Horrible waiter.”
Reviewed 30 June 2013 via mobile

Its a pity to see that customers like me did not come back to this restaurant which in my opinion has the best bosnian food in the city only because of the behavour of its blonde waiter who is completely umpolite.

“Gourmet Serbian restaurant”
Reviewed 9 January 2013

The food was delicious, staff was nice and the ambient is great (there was no smell from the kitchen). If you are lucky you might catch a live performance (balkan style)

“First time great, second a very bad service!!!”
Reviewed 3 January 2013 via mobile

My friend and I have been here twice last November and we liked a lot the atmosphere and couisine. The guy was so nice. But today, at our second time in Maribor, we decided to come back here.
We were in the cue at the entrance, waiting for a table...when it was our time, a couple of locals entered into the restaurant...and the woman attending asked them something on local language: they entered and got a table... We asked the same: the restaurant was full! I really don't like this way of working..a cue is a something that you have to respect!!! And they didn't reserve the place! So we went to another place to have dinner and we will not come back at these conditions!!!
