Reasons for trip

Whilst staying in Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the restaurant “Sadrvan”:http://www.restoransadrvan.ba/ was recommended by both our guide and guidebook. It’s centrally located in the Old Town, and although occupying a large corner site, we were advised to make a reservation and so we called in during the day.

Having booked, we had a lovely table in the garden with central fountain, trees, vines and cats looking for scraps. Those that hadn’t were told there were only tables inside or worse still, no room at the inn. After 8.20pm when the Ramadan fast was broken, it became even busier, and we noticed tables hastily being laid on an outer terrace (apparently because the weather was a little unpredictable, they’d decided not to use them).

The staff, dressed in Ottoman costumes, were exceptionally friendly and professional. On being seated our waiter offered a complimentary rakija, a 45% proof schnapps-like drink, whilst we looked at the menu. We asked about the ‘home-made wine’, exceptional value at €10 a litre, and were offered a taste. The rakija arrived in a small test tube like glasses with bulbous bottoms which we were told were Ottoman in style. It was strong.

The restaurant is tourist friendly, with the Bosnian side of the menu priced in Marks and the English side in Euro. Roy ordered a beef stroganoff which at €14 was expensive and therefore huge – he’d got his Marks and Euros muddled! It was served in a large, beaten silver bowl, covered with a dome which was theatrically removed at the table. I had klepe a typical Bosnian dish and a type of ravioli but served with a yoghurt sauce, so although it looked very creamy it was actually very fresh. Having helped Roy out with his stroganoff, we were both very full. Our bill, which we paid in Euro was €40 with tip.
