In caffe Veliki everything that you order is made with love. Food is great, absolutely amazing and staff is always on your service. Highly recommend to visit this restaurant if you are in Novi Sad. P.S. Price is acceptable and one portion is enough for both of you. :)

Veliki was recommended to us by a friend in Novi Sad, but the actual meal blew the recommendation out of the water. Because we wanted to try a variety of Vojvodinian specialties, we ordered the "Veliki" platter. "Veliki" means large, but this was more like enormous. It includes four types of meat, all delicious - but the pork chops with... More

I needed a place to have a bite and hide from the winter between meetings. Found this spot by chance and definitely took to it. Price is right the food hits the spot and the staff is friendly.

Went there with a business partner who wanted to make me try the Vojvodina food! Nice cozy atmosphere, large wood table, good service and amazing delicious food! I would say the only minus is the smoke inside but you are in Serbia...

The first restaurant that comes to my mind if I have foreign guests and the place that would always recommend as a local. Service is great, food even better and it is located in the downtown. My recommendation would be perkelt (Hungarian meat stew similar to goulash) and local wine. This place is both for young and old clientele since... More
