This is the eldest fish restaurant in the city and one of the eldest restaurants in general. While enjoying warm and traditional ambient you may taste varieties of river and sea fish. This is MustSee place in Banja Luka, especially for foreigners looking for a domestic ambient.

Various and even original meals, from fish to meat. Very well presented and tasty. Domestic wine is decent. Cosy ambiance, nice outside terrace. Prices are reasonable according to the quality of the food and service.

Old good restaurant. Many times I had SOM NA POVRACAMA. And all fish is very good. Only one that I hate is inside is always smells cigarettes even if nobody smoking.

a nice restaurant, decorated with old family-type portraits, with offering a fair service, Alas can certainly be recommended. But avoid open wine, the worst I have drunk in years. Just stick to beer, and nothing will happen...

This restaurant is what some one would hope to find in unknown city. Very acceptable cuisine with domestic specialities, primarly fish. Location is not worth to mention, but classic interior design in old trade family fashion is pleasant enough. For a city not so rich in good restaurants this one deserve 4*. Name "Alas" means fisherman on river, so it... More

Located in a semi-run down section of town, the atmosphere inside is very traditional Balkans. Nice setting--good for romantic dinner. Alas, the food is average--seafood served like your grandmother might make it but nothing special beyond that. Service was stiff.

Best prepared fresh river fish in Banja Luka. Small but nice garden for hot summer days. Good prices , good service and a a nice selection local wines. You must try the local brandy named Drenja. The interior of the restaurant gives the right atmosphere for couples.

Food is mediocre, sometimes you can get a half cold dish. Considering they are a fish restaurant, the choice of Fish could be better.
