Traditional Bosnian Food at Restoran Emen in Mostar
As well as being a beautiful city, Mostar also has two other outstanding features – great coffee and great food. We only planned to stay in Mostar for three days but have decided to extend that stay to two weeks. The food and coffee are worth staying for.
It also helped that we got a fantastic deal on an extended stay at our apartment. This is one of the joys of traveling during the low season.
We’ve already visited this restaurant a couple of times. It’s only 70 meters away from Stari Most on a beautiful cobbled street. It’s part of Hotel Emen, which has rooms on both sides of the street.
The meals above cost us a total of 16 EUR. This included one sparking water and one tea. The Grilled Chicken was 7 EUR, the Veggie Plate was 6 EUR, the sparkling water and tea were 1.50 EUR each. That’s an amazing price for such a high-quality restaurant in the heart of the old village.
On a previous visit we ordered Grilled Trout and a Veggie Plate. The trout was very big. It cost 8 EUR.
The photo above doesn’t do this dish justice. It was much bigger in real life than it looks in the photo. It was beautifully presented. At Emen Restaurant we usually order a fish or chicken dish and a veggie plate. We then share both.
The Veggie Plate is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
All dishes we ordered were served with a basket of bread which was free. This has been the case at all restaurants we’ve eaten at so far.
The Grilled Chicken was was served with French fries and a huge piece of flatbread. The flatbread and basket of bread seemed like far too much bread.

We’ll definitely be eating at this restaurant again before we leave.
