Though this restaurant is at a distance from the old town it is a must see place. It's a shabby shick, bell epoque time travelling experience with a fancy elevator taking you to toilets. It feels as if it has never been renovated since the beginning of the 20-th century. The beer was of really good quality as it gave... More

Good place to have a beer (there are some options, not too much.. but it is ok) or to lunch/dinner. Decoration is also good.

We were a large group and had pre-ordered off of a very restricted menu (meat or vegetarian). We were served a chicken soup which was tasty but tepid, followed by a pretty good chicken stir fry accompanied by a salad topped with grated cheese. All quite tasty but unusual combinations. The pastry soaked in sugar syrup was too sweet for... More

Staff is friendly. Beer and food is cheap and awesome. The restaurant is a beautiful work of architecture. I will come back many more times during my three year tour here.

Easy to imagine Habsburg Empire-era balls sitting in one of the balconies above the main floor of the restaurant, enjoying a number of the brewery's well-rated brown beers. The service was excellent, including free history and cultural instruction. I can't remember the last time I was attended to by a well-dressed, courteous, well-informed, attentive waiter who was proud of his... More

This museum is right next to the brewery. It is very small and you can see everything in 10minutes. Entrance fee is 3BAM.With beer taste 5BAM and with lunch at their pub 25BAM. Despite the fact they did their best it is more or less just an overpriced souvenir shop.

Space is very good, and atmosphere with live music is great for dancing and enjoying a good time. However, other then bier (since this is a brewery), food was really below average... I've had cold appetizer (nothing special), 3-4 different kind of meats on a plate (very gummy, hard to chew), and the only good meal was dessert since Baklava... More

Clasic tourist trap. Go just to pub to drink good beer, because museum is like 5m2 and there is nothing interesting inside

The museum is a joke. For 5BAM you can have the entrance to 15 square meter room with few exhibits and a coupon for small beer which is very average quality. The only worth thing to see here is the interior of the pub.

You can buy a combined ticket at the museum so that you can enjoy one beer after visiting the tiny musem. I usually go to Sarajevska pivara (beer hall) in the evening. You can of course the fantastic local beer Sarajevsko pivo and nice meal if you're hungry. The atmosphere is lively with many people (both local people and Tourists)... More
