This restaurant is located in the old part of town, on the slopes of Trebević, and it’s a favorite destination for both local guests and tourists from around the world. On summer days the garden area is the perfect choice for those who want to find an oasis of peace and greenery while taking in a spectacular view of the... More

We came here because we heard about the view, and indeed it was stunning! We had a traditionals Bosnian dish (Dolma) for lunch and liked it very much (after the huge portions we had in the past days). We decided to walk to the restaurant. It was a bit of a challenge to find it but we did. By the... More

You can find much much better restaurants in Sarajevo for sure and with ease! The restaurant has everything! Really nice location, perfect view of the city. Especially at night is a great wow factor! Where to start? Food is just terrible. Never eat worst in my life I guess! Also the portion is so small, without taste and the looks... More

We had an excellent late lunch after spending part of a day getting a tour of the city. We wanted to treat our guide, who did an outstanding job, to a lunch at the place he most wanted to eat at. He immediately settled on Biban. Up high on the outskirts of Sarajevo, there are fabulous views of the city,... More

This was truly a highlight of our visit to Sarajevo. After getting recommended to Biban by a friend, we walked up from old town through the neighborhoods and found this gem. The view was genuinely breathtaking. You can see the entire city. Our waiter was gracious and attentive and friendly, and took the time to ask us about ourselves. He... More

The first time I came here was in 2008 on a sunny day. We enjoyed their fry bread and cheese and some drinks. It was a magical experience. I just returned after 8 years and reading some negative reviews was worried the place had gone down hill. But turns out the reviews were misleading. This place is all about the... More

Location is great with a view of Sarajevo. Great. And the food and waiters and whole thing there is great. When the sun is going behind the hills far away and you are sitting at the table whole city in front of you it is great. Nice service, very good local food that is all you need. Maybe the restaurant... More

My friends from the U.S. and I decided to have lunch here after a long day of hiking on Trebevic mountain. We were impressed by the view of the city from the restaurant (which btw, you can get from Trebevic as well!), but everything else was just TERRIBLE. The place is overpriced for the really, reeaaaallyyyy bad food (I ended... More

Looking at the relavent comments, I developed great expectations for the place. It is nice outdoors, with great view, plain restaurant inside, toilets are not good, food is OK. It's a nice place to visit but if you don't, don't bother.
