RESTAURANTS IN TREBINJE

Restaurant &hotel Platani

RESTAURANT PLATANI

The Restaurant Platani (at Hotel Platani) is situated on the main Piazza. Seating is the terrace or on the tree lined piazza itself.

The attraction here is being able to people watch, listen to live music and eat a good steak with a decent bottle of local wine. This can be done for less than 15 Euros per head.

Restaurant Platani offers varied manu and it is a lovely place that locals like to enjoy and while away a warm summers evening. There is a daily market and last time I was there on a Saturday I treated myself to a coffee and pastry and again enjoyed live music. This restaurant really is centrally placed and very vibrant.

Tip: Book in the height of the season if you don’t wish to wait.

Restaurant & winery Vukoje

RESTAURANT VUKOJE

This place is a gem of a find, it is a modern winery, with a new contemopary restaurant, nestled on the top of a hill, with stunning views of the 13 Century town of Trebinje and the surrounding mountains with their churches perched on the top of them.

Wine Culture in Bosnia & Herzegovina is growing, more wine producers and restaurants are paying greater attention to their wine lists and to their customers. Julijana (Julia) and Mladen, sommeliers, at Vukoje, are usually on hand to welcome you personally. They aren’t a large winery but believe in quality and not mass producing for quantity and have about 20 different labels all exclusively made from their 30 hectares of vineyards.

Initially you will be blown away by its location – it’s just different and hard to describe.
You enter through 2 oak barrelled doors and wind your way up the stairs to a new, modern, open plan restaurant with a floor to ceiling water feature. Spectacular views span over the town, the river to the vineyard itself, with mountains behind you as your back drop.

On the floor above is an outdoor dining area for the summer months, with comfortable outdoor furniture and again the “views” to be enjoyed whist dining.
Above this is a roof terrace bar.

The food is good, modern and organic where possible and service prompt. They offer you a taster wine with each course and with their genuine love of wine they will give you a little information on each one.
You do not need to be a wine lover, but helpful if you are! To me I find the white Zilavka Grape, delicate, crisp and fresh with a light aroma and so very drinkable. And on a summers evening how do you say “NO” to a pale pink Rose – it just says “Ok I am on holiday, why not”. And the red wine with Steak that has been marinated for a week!!

If you do want to visit they will offer you a short tour 15-20 mins of the cellars before dining if previously requested.

In the summer months it is recommended to book- please call the number below or ask our property manager to make a booking for you. A taxi could also be arranged. ENJOY!

Please visit www.vinskacesta.ba for further information or phone +387 (0)63 790 428 or ask our property manager who will be happy to book for you.

Travel from Ivanica towards Trebinje.

At the first roundabout, on the outskirts of Trebinje, take the first exit. Go over the bridge and at the second roundabout take the second exit. Go straight ahead to a small roundabout, go over this one to the T junction. Turn left , then very shortly afterwards turn right into Nićifora Dučića street,  following the brown tourist signs for ‘Vinarija Vukoje’.

At this stage you may feel you are completely lost, going through a housing area but you’re not. Follow the road up to hill taking the second turning right into Mirna street. Keep left as the road forks (it is a small dip in the road and both go to the same place) and before the next sharp bend you will see in front of you a large glass three story building- The winery.

Park and the entrance, through the oak barrelled doors is at the far end of the car park.
It is about a three minute journey from the town centre.
Not suitable for guests that can’t manage a lot of stairs as there is no lift.

RESTAURANT AND WINE BAR ‘HEDONIJA’

Restaurant and Wine Bar ‘Hedonija’ sits on the bank of Trebišnjica River.  Located in the heart of the city center, it is just a walking distance from the local Tourist Agency Office, Museum of Herzegovina, local hotels, restaurants, bars and souvenir shops.

Nevertheless, it is a quiet place, a hidden gem nestled in the remains of Trebinje Old Town Fortress- the most northern of the five fortresses that once defended the Old City.

The house itself is more than four hundred years old. During its renovation, the outside of the house and the large patio preserved the original design, while the interior combined the elements of art-nouveaux, industrial and eclectic design, while preserving the authenticity of Herzegovina old houses.

The concept itself is based on ‘feeling at home’ and ‘hedonism” philosophies. Their goal is to offer a taste of Herzegovina to visitors out of town and a taste of the world to the local population.
In a unique, warm and relaxed atmosphere, they  offer more than 150 different, local and foreign drinks, including 35 labels of fine local wine, local brandy, homemade prosciutto ham,  selection of local cheeses, marinated anchovies, and olives and a local version of a ‘death by the chocolate’ cake.

When booked in advance, they also organize wine tasting, brunches, lunches and dinners for small and large groups, preparing a number of local meals, using ingredients and produce of our local farmers.

Restaurant Studenac

RESTAURANT STUDENAC

Restaurant Studenac, full of local tradition and artefacts, is located just on the outskirts of Trebinje, on the river Trebisnijica and is open all year round!

Set in and around a trout farm, on the river… you can enjoy good food in the rustic indoor area of the restaurant or on their extensive terraces, whilst watching the fish swim near your feet – it kept our children, when they were younger, entertained!

Primarily local fish is served but there is also several meat options, including steak, chicken and Pizza.

Do take the directions with you, as I mentioned it is just on the outskirts of town, but the journey is worth it as Restaurant Studenac is just that bit different!

As you arrive in to Trebinje, go straight across the roundabouts and through the town going over the bridge. Cross over the bridge and bear right on the M20. Keep straight ahead onto the M6. At any round about go straight ahead. You past the new hotel “SL Industry” on your right.
Take the next turning right onto Melentija Perovića street (you should also pick up brown sign for the restaurant), follow this all the way through the residential area, towards the river, taking a right and then right again following their signage into the car park.

It is about a 7 min journey out of the town.
