Under the Linden Tree – Pod Lipom – Tasty tradition

This restaurant is just like any other, but then again so different.

The interior is like a wooden land, with wooden tables and chairs all around. It’s not so spacious but it’s still cozy, with a nice outside “garden” tables when weather permits.

It is located in the center of Baščaršija Old town, yet away from crowds and noise.

It has many pictures of art on the walls, and the one that is not art-related but the most noticeable is the one with former US president Bill Clinton shaking hands with the owner :- )!

It is a big deal to have visits like that in this restaurant, considering the fact that there are so many to choose. Mr. Clinton was there on several occasions.

It has a big offer of tasty traditional cuisine, and it’s definitely a place to enjoy with family or friends.

What I find cute is one corner of the restaurant called “the couple’s corner” where couples can have a quiet and romantic time, separated from the rest of the restaurant’s visitors.

The restaurant can be booked for weddings, organised company groups dinners, etc.

It is very popular in the period of the holy month of Ramadan, when they have great iftar offers (religious dinner after fasting for Muslims) for groups.

I organized several work and private groups dinners here and I can highly recommend this spot for its professionalism, great offers, tasty food and kind staff. And yes, there is live music too :- ).
