When you are in Sarajevo you eat ćevapčići (or čevapi) and the best are on Baščaršija (Sarajevo old town) in Željo or Željo 2. Meat is great, service is fast and only yogurt, cola or water to drink!

All local people will say to you: dont go there. When you order cevapcici you will get them in half minut. Who knows how much time they stayed ready for serving?! Bad service

If you want eat very good or excellent Cevapi in Sarajevo you should go to Zeljo. Cevapi is very delicious and big, and of course price is very good.

Cevapcici were very good which is typical for Sarajevo. We ate with cream cheese and onion. Afterwards we smelled but it was worth it. We were bothered by the fact bc we couldn't have any alcohol drinks.
