The place is beautiful and the food is superb with many vegetarian options: we loved the cheese and veggie pasta which had this wonderful tomato-creamy sauce mixed with veggies and pappardelle. We loved the cauliflower with smoky cheese sauce so much that we ordered a second serving. Excellent service.

This restaurant is decorated in a stark minimalist motif, with bare cement walls and sturdy tables. It is a restaurant that would be at home in a hipster neighbourhood in any city. I suspect that on a saturday night it is crammed with the cool and trying to be cool. Vojvodina is located in the north of Serbia. It is... More

Even if most of local people are excited about it, I was a little bit disappointed. Don't take me wrong, food is great but the location is not the best decoration in the city !

The restaurant attached to the Hotel Veliki is so agreeable it is hard to leave and go to other places in the city to eat. Casual, smart and minimalist in décor, the cooking is consistently good, especially the traditional Serbian dishes from the Vojvodinia region. The waiting staff speak more than satisfactory English (and probably a few other languages as... More

We went there for our 10th wedding anniversary and we loved it! The food was superb and good value for money, the service fast and smooth, and, as it was a weekday, it wasn't too crowded either. We'll definitely be eating there again.

Went here by TripAdvisor recomendation and not sorry for it. Everything is great, from atmosphere, service, prices, and not to mention food. We ordered a meal by the recomendation of the waitress, made a combination of four meals, all local dishes in sweet-salty combination. Never tried something like this before, but would definetly order again.

First of all the location is the advantage, it is exactly in the city centre, and you are close to all important landmarks, for me it is the best place both for business and tourists to visit this place because of location. Second best thing is th eprice, this place is affordable , within the low budget too. Third, quality... More
