Carnivores eat well in Mostar, meat is central to every meal. Vegetarians may well get tired of spinach and cheese, the most usual combination for meatless dishes. The influence is strongly Turkish, with menus featuring lots of stuffed vegetable dishes and filo-wrapped fillings. Local lamb, terrific tomatoes, crispy cucumbers, salty farmhouse cheeses, yummy yoghurt - everything tastes so fresh with good gutsy flavours and generous serves. It may not be fine dining but it is wonderfully satisying and combined with a setting either overlooking the river or in a shady courtyard, its very conducive to lingering with a cold beer on a hot afternoon or another glass of wine on a balmy evening.

We've eaten lunch at Sadrvan (on the road leading to up to the bridge, on the west bank) both times we've been to Mostar, enjoying both the food and the relaxed garden atmosphere. Babilon, set on terraces overlooking the bridge (again on the west side) is rather more upmarket - and correspondingly expensive - is lovely in the evening as the sun sets and the lights come up.
