Whenever I visit a new place, I simply adore trying the local cuisine. This is the type of experience which gives a special touch to my entire trip.
When it comes to the lovely town of Mostar, Sadrvan is one of the best restaurants around.
This restaurant is situated in the heart of the Old Town, in No 11, Jusovina Street, very close to Stari Most, which is the iconic bridge of the town.
The first detail I noticed about this restaurant was its charming garden which is a splash of green in the middle of the town. The garden shelters a beautiful terrace which offers a lovely view of the narrow streets of the Old Town.
While we were admiring the garden, a few young women dressed in Bosnian traditional costumes warmly welcomed us and urged us to enjoy the lovely atmosphere of Sadrvan. The traditional and authentic scenery and their hospitality finally convinced us to stay.
The interior of the restaurant is also decorated in a traditional style. The traditional objects used to embellish the interior of the restaurant and the old furniture create a very rustic atmosphere.
However, the main reason I strongly recommend Sadrvan Restaurant is the delicious local food which you can try there. The menu offers a selection of high quality local dishes and drinks.
In case you want to experience a real culinary feast, you should definitely try the plates which combine several Bosnian specialties.
It goes without saying that the service was impeccable and the staff was friendly and gave us good recommendations. For example, we were so excited when we saw the menu and in our euphoria we wanted to try quite a few specialties, but the staff kindly told us that the plates included a large amount of food and that it would be a pity to waste it. Even though we really appreciated and followed the advice, it was indeed too much food.
As a souvenir after you pay the bill, you will receive a nice postcard with the image of the staff standing in front of the restaurant. This simple gesture made me appreciate this place even more.
To conclude, Sadrvan Restaurant means delicious food, an impeccable service, a lovely scenery and a great atmosphere. I strongly recommend this place in case you want to enjoy a great meal.
