Respond to Review of Karuzo
by Stevie

Review: Vegetarian and pescatarian food. For veggies there are offerings for lacto, ovo and vegan vegetarians. Pescatarian dishes offered, e.g. shrimp and sushi if you have someone non veggie friendly with you who likes fish/seafood. Good choice menus are in English including the specials board. The chef/waiter is a nice guy called Sasha. He is multi-lingual including English. I simply asked what he would recommend that was vegan veggie. In a great 'can do' response he enthused back to me, "What would you like, I can cook anything you like?". 25 marks for a hearty and tasty meal including a fruit juice make it good value for money. Centrally located and open good hours on most days. I would prefer if it was 100% veggie of course but it's easily the best restaurant in town currently for veggies (I need no convincing of the difficulties in trying to interest Bosnians in a purely vegetarian restaurant). Karuzo has a 'bb' street address (see guidance notes on the Bosnia and Hercegovina page on this website). It's at the East end of the street before the numbering starts. From the Catholic Cathedral its just up the hill and turn left round the corner. A very small point but I would prefer if the menu was split into vegetarian and pescatarian sections. Something on the menu to indicate the vegan veggie dishes would also be useful. Closed Sundays but everyone needs a day off. I'd be more than happy to eat here again. Corrected west with east from previous review on Friday March 30, 2007, following comment below from Maggie.

Great review, just one correction, Karuzo is located at the east, not the west end of Mehmed Spaho, just behind the central market(Merkale) - walk to the back of the market and you'll be facing it.

Absolutely wonderful place. I am not sure what is better the atmosphere, chef or food. Not too expensive even for Bosnian standard. From my experience, especially in dating a vegan in Sarajevo, this is the first time someone knew what "vegan" means.
