This restaurant is always busy - reservations are highly recommended.
My husband and I had a lovely dinner here - it was our favorite of all of the meals we had in Dubrovnik.
The menu is based on traditional Bosnian cuisine and very meat heavy (although vegetarians can certainly find good options).
Sit outside and enjoy the people watching as it's a very busy pedestrian street.

Dubrovnik, old town, is not for gourmands! Restaurants are overpriced and poor quality (probably because they are not expecting return guests. Service in general is solid but uninspired. Taj Mahal was an exception: service very good, prices very reasonable, food above average (though the 'Bey' soup was special)

We were looking forward to trying Bosnian cuisine (which is what this is despite the name!) and had to book two days in advance to get an outside table. Whilst we were there people were constantly being turned away and/or crowding the alley queuing for a table. In hindsight I wouldn't have minded sitting indoors as we had people cramming against our table quite a bit as a result.
The food was enjoyable and I don't know what I was expecting for Bosnian cuisine, but it's basically salty fried meat, fried cheese, sometimes with pastry involved. I enjoyed it (and the flatbread is particularly delicious) but afterwards felt like I needed to detox with a week of salad - it's not the place for veggies or people with high blood pressure!
I had the cheese plate and my husband the meat plate for starter and then we shared the Genghis khan platter (!) which had a bit of everything. We were disappointed that the sausages and burgers on it were just processed supermarket ones (or seemed so) and the rest was just cooked meat of various kinds. Still, the service was good and friendly, the bill wasn't bad, and we enjoyed what we ate, so no real complaints.

We booked the night before as we had tried twice to turn up without a reservation and we were too hungry to wait the hour or more.

Food is tasty and service is endearing. Sure it's a little crowded but that's the old city for you. The focus is definitely on meat but we really enjoyed the Ghengis Khan meat platter and stuffed peppers with cheese.

Absolutely no room for dessert but that was more about us than the offerings.

Would recommend without hesitation.

This is a Bosnian restaurant, so this makes it more distinctive than the rest Croatian and European once. It is worth a visit and booking is recommended. The food is very nice, balanced tastes, we had the rolled beef filled with cheese and veggies and pljeskavica with cheese, both quite tasty. The baklava is definitely to be tried. If you visit the old town in Dubrovnik do not miss it. :)
