One of the spots to try the best of the best is a well-known Bistro MZ in Ravnice and Mitnica on the west side of the city, Črnomerec. Oriented on a national cuisine, this restaurant is always on the top of the lists for the best ćevapi and pljeskavice in town.

Address: Aleja Antuna Augustinčića 8


Conveniently located near the main cinema Cinestar in town, M & S is a relatively new addition in town. They are quickly developing a reputation for their ćevapi which are succulent, tasty, fresh and affordable. The chef always rests the meat and the quality is always consistent.

Another top place for a great meal is located in Prečko. This spot hides its greatest charm among the leafs of a grape vine. The inside space offers a homelike atmosphere of the past. A delicious portion of ćevapi combined with kajmak, a side dish and a beer, shouldn’t cost more than 80 kuna.
