There is one place – all in one. A place for daily coffee, a place to drink, a place for good food. Barhana is all that – and it is fantastic.
Barhana is located in Bascarsia (in the old town), a bit hidden in an inner courtyard. The atmosphere is relaxed, unpretentious and positive. Free tables are almost impossible to find, especially in the evening, so it’s best to have a table reserved or to happen to be there when someone leaves. Luck is very much appreciated in this place. Barhana offers a combination of really delicious food, warm ambience and more than affordable prices.
Numerous special moments have been celebrated here. But not just special. Because of that good atmosphere, often an afternoon coffee spontaneously extends to a night drink and dinner at the same table. I can never say no to good food and I have to admit that there were times when I would go there just to have a coffee and ended up having lunch or dinner. Food is more or less an Italian mix; pizza is excellent, lasagna,chicken and steaks are served in different ways. They also have a few local dishes and everything is delicious. Drinks are also good, you can try wine, beer or different types of rakia, visnjevaca (cherry rakia) for example.
The same courtyard is shared by two more restaurants so the whole area is quite lively and irresistible as soon as the warmer weather peeks over Sarajevo. You will enjoy its liveliness! 🙂
