Das Ist Walter

If you're wondering why one of Ljubljana's most popular Balkan restaurants has a distinctly German name, the answer lies in the 1972 Yugoslav cult classic Valter Brani Sarajevo (Walter Defends Sarajevo). In addition to walls covered with the usual posters and other memorabilia, the film itself actually plays continuously on loop, with a hushed silence coming over the entire place during the climax. Perhaps most impressive is the fact that it all feels completely authentic, while the heaping plates of grilled meat are not only mouthwateringly delicious, but also ridiculously inexpensive. Don't forget to order a bottle (or five) of Sarajevsko pivo and save room for baklava.

I can not evaluate the food , since I did not get it on the table. Extreme advised not to visit unless you have a desire to listen that you are unfriendly guest in a private branch
