Bosnian cuisine, which is broadly represented by the various restaurants in Mostar, is closely related to Turkish, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisines.
The best restaurant in Mostar, in my opinion is Sadrvan. At the entrance to the restaurant you will meet guys and girls dressed in national costumes. In the center of the restaurant’s courtyard there is a lovely fountain, In summer it is used for cooling watermelons in its ice water.
The waiters in the restaurant are very friendly and fast, as well as the kitchen, which executes orders quickly. As for the prices, it should be noted that prices in Bosnia, including the restaurants, much lower than the prices of its neighbors – Croatia and Montenegro.
Our always smiling waiter helped us to make a choice and recommended a plate for two persons, full of local specialities: dolma(stuffed peppers with minced meat), japrak(stuffed cabbage leafes with minced meat), bosnian cookies, small cevapcici (like turkish kotlets), Duvec (rice with vegetables), boiled potatoes, sour cream and a variety of sauces.
It was incredibly delicious! Japrak and cevapcici tasted like the ones I ate in Istanbul. For the dessert we ordered a baklava. We were not disappointed! Well…I would have preferred it to be a little less sweet, but together with green tea it was perfect 🙂
Lastly we filled up our bottles with water from the tap in the bathroom 🙂 The water there is clean, icy, from the under ground, suitable for drinking. The day was exhausting hot (early August), so this water was just perfect!
If you head to Mostar, do not miss out this great restaurant! Highly recommended!

Great to see you visited Bosnia and Croatia. Cevapcici is traditional Bosnian meal and also well accepted in Croatia. I just love’em. I also don’t like when Baklava is to sweet and when is made with domestic nuts…superb!
You have a nice blog. I’m also fan of Genesis.
Thank you, Dragan! 🙂
