Kafanica is a must stop, if you are in Novi Sad. Taste of traditional serbian food, helpful and friendly staff, great atmosphere and reasonable prices will make you want to come again for more. I highly recommend this restaurant!

It was a friends gathering event. Staff doesn't mind rearranging the tables, or allowing some reasonable quantity of special food or drinks brought from outside. Everything is very clean, and starters (before the dinner) are shared generously (to the point that you could even forget about the dinner). Staff speak reasonably good English.

The best restaurant in novi sad. Ask for the apple pie at the end... After the pork ribs with honey and mustard and the turkey with Gorgonzola cheese

Kafanica seems to have it all--great ambience, excellent service, fresh and delicious food. This is a place to come and savor your local, sometimes organic, meal. The server both knew the menu inside-and-out, and had pride in it. Chickpea hummus, goat cheese plate, fresh salad, rabbit ravioli, chocolate mousse--all were delicious. Our only disappointment during our visit to Novi Sad... More

As is the norm in Serbia meat-lovers will be happy, but vegetarians had also some seasonal choices (a spectacular pumpkin soup served in a pumpkin). Was surprised by the selection of local wines offered by the glass. Beware that almost all restaurants in Serbia are smoking places.

Great place to spend an evening in Novi Sad. Such a friendly and helpful staff and imaginative way of presenting choice of plates: no specific menu - meals are explained directly by the waiter! Definitely a new experience for us :-) As for the food - abundant choice of specific Vojvodina provenient plates - such a tasteful journey into smells... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Novi Sad. It is located in the central part of Novi Sad (close to the St.Mary Cathedral) but you still need to ask for directions if you don't really know where it is exactly since it is not located in the main street, but in a left side alley. The place is... More
