Great food, drinks, and atmosphere

I haven't found many places do breakfast/brunch in Novi Sad but this one does it and does it well. There's even a buffet til 11. Although I'm a carnivore, I really liked the veggie omelette (veggie dishes aren't quite as easy to find in the Balkans). There is also an amazing selection of lunch... read more

If you come to Novi Sad you definitely shouldn't skip this place. Domestic atmosphere and great food are what you can expect here. The owners, Jelena and Sale are dedicated and passionate in the vision to create unique place of rare Vojvodinian food. Expect nothing but a great time there...

Our second random find in Novi Sad (pure coincidence that it's #2 on TripAdvisor at the moment). Plenty of traditional meat fare but to a posh standard. Really welcoming staff. A tectonic plate of meat and cheese to share between the four of us as a starter. Sausage dishes for our friends and a very moreish spicy pork and bean... More

Cafe Veliki is a modern, welcoming bar/restaurant, located a 2min walk just off the main pedestrian area in Novi Sad (Zmaj Jovina street). If you want to visit a 'more local' place than all of the flashy bars/restaurants located in Zmaj Jovina & Laze Telečkog streets, I recommend Veliki. The atmosphere is great, friendly, cozy. All of the guests seemed... More
