It was the first place we visited in Kosovo when we came here two years ago. We return there regularly. The restaurant serves traditional Serbian food, not too many places like this in Pristina. The food is excellent, like home made. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Prices are very reasonable. In summer You can sit in a small... More

Small rustic Serbian restaurant, just outside Pristina, very close to the main road to Skopje. A lot of pork dishes on the menu. Warm atmosphere and friendly service. Ask for the day's soup - we had the only one available that day: lamb and vegetables. Delicious in its simplicity. The mixed salad was good, the sausage was tasty and the... More

This is a great little place that is far enough outside of town to avoid all of Pristinas more annoying traits. The food served is Serbian, and whilst it's not flashy or gourmet, it is spectacularly simple and to great effect. No frozen chicken breasts here! So if your looking for a good, hearty and simple meal then this is... More

Nice ambiance and nice and friendly service. We ate outside in the somewhat rustic but cozy looking terrace. Food was however a bit disappointing. It was very plain and simple cooking but didn’t have anything beyond what I could do quickly at home, or what you could get in any Serbian village restaurant.

Very good local food. The best greek salad outside from Greece. Big portions and very good quality of every food especially of all kind of meat. I'd never complained anything. Price is quite good.

If you are a golfer, visit the golf range 150 metres on then return for the best value food in town. I go easy on the cheese filling, pork is good and stuffed peppers/cabbage. What you do not eat take away.

This has just great tasty food, you will get pork which you will not get in many restraunts here in Pristina. The menu seems predonimatly meat but all meals were very good and good value with main course about €6.
