This family restaurant has been operating for six years, and during this period is profiled as a restaurant with the widest selection of wine and fish specialties in the region. Although located near the town with stunning views of Žepče, the restaurant represents a green oasis that offers every guest the luxury of relaxing and enjoying the superb local cuisine.

WELL DONE - The restaurant supplies over 6o percent of the vegetables needed for cooking from its own domestic economy „Pervan“, grown ecologically. In addition to vegetables, family business produces various kinds of spirits - the traditional local spirits that are on the wine list but also offered for sale as souvenirs. Since the restaurant - wine shop in everyday business has a lot of empty glass wine bottles, this waste disposal problem is solved in a creative way. These bottles are re-used in the production of domestic spirits and liqueurs, illustrated as souvenirs, and used in a glass fence, making a decorative and distinctive detail of the exterior of  the restaurant, and also reminding all the guests of the necessity of recycling and the fact that the potential waste can be a nice environmental decoration.

AROUND THE TABLE - Dioniz has gained the status of a wine shop, as one of only a few such restaurants in BiH, due to offer of more than 60 types of wine from the region. Beside wine, the restaurant is especially proud to offer over 10 different types of domestic spirits and liqueurs prepared from a series of local fruit trees: apples, plums, pears, cherries... The restaurant is known for its wide range of dishes prepared of marine and freshwater fish, as well as local and national dishes, and the possibility of preparing traditional dishes: dishes under sač and pork roasts to order. Another example of the concern about the environment and guests is Children's Menu and Vegetarian Menu, which are available to guests.

SURROUNDING - The restaurant – wine shop is located on the outskirts of Žepče on the way to Zavidovići, near the bus station. In just five minutes walk guests can reach the center of Žepče of which they can learn even more by visiting religious and cultural monuments, current events, and other interesting facilities, and proximity of the bus station allows visitors a quick access to other towns in the region: Zenica, Zavidovići, Maglaj...

Dioniz has been organizing Rakijada, tourism - gastronomic event for hundreds of its loyal guests, for several years. This event is organized in autumn and allows guests to take part in the production of fruit brandy in the traditional way as the local manufacturers did from time immemorial, and  taste the local specialties: meat and vegetables made under the sač.
