“Much atmosphere and good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Just the right place to eat Serbian food and there are lots of things to try which are not on the menu and you have to ask for ... a little far away from center, I would go more often if it was nearer ... but at least no parking problems

“Amongst the best for a reason”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

We frequently go to this restaurant during our stays in Belgrade. It’s a bit far from downtown, consequently implies taxi drive that sometimes can be costly, however excellent food and deserts will make your day much more delightful. Menu encompasses different meals and you will certainly find something suitable to your taste. Moreover, prices are not rocket high as in some other similar restaurants in Belgrade.
Small tip: prior to arrival be aware of the dress code, pants/trousers are highly recommended

“Was my favorite restaurant once...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

A few years ago, this was a great great place... Now, it is sometimes good, sometimes almost as it was once.
Something very weird happened a few years ago. They changed chef(s), I think... And it went downhill from there. It is still very good, but not great as it once was.
Restaurant itself is very cozy and beautiful with big parking area.
Brka and Peca are great waiters. You should visit Sindjelic. Maybe you will be lucky, and they will shine as bright as they once shined!

“Good service and average food at slightly high price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This restaurant has been recommended to me having in mind it's one of those very prefered by local people but personally I haven't been very impressed.

It's located far away from city center reachable by car/taxi in 20-25 min. The area where is located it's not so nice while the restaurant's interior for itself, although it has been recently renewed, nothing special with medium-quality facilities and too much plants all over.

The menu consists of plenty of serbian traditional and international dishes while the quality of the food is average. Nothing so authentic and particular to be highly recommended. The wine cart has excellent offer in terms of local and international wines. The choice of local wine producers is very good, also in terms of the price. The choice of desserts is huge and although I haven't tasted it others liked it. The thing I find very strange and which I dislike it's the way how they serve dessert - they first show it on two huge plates and when you choose they give you directly from the plates they had shown before also to others (something similar I saw only in Turkey).

The service good although the weiter who served us had poor wine know-how in order to recommended it. We also take a long time to make an order.

The smoking it's allowed in the all restaurant - for the smokers it's the paradise, for others the smoking atmosphere is a huge minus..

Summa summarum - if you visit Belgrade as a tourist it's definitely not the place for you (there are other serbian etno restaurants much more better and cheaper and if you want international cuisine it's not also the best one). If you live in Belgrade or have long staying it can be taken into consideration and only if you visit restaurants often and like to change.

“Excellent famous traditional Serbian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Besides all the Serbian traditional food they also offer international dishes as well. Traditional meals are excellent, everything that you can think of it's available. The service is very good. The athmosphere is really special, very old serbian kind of looking with a lot of nice details. Prices are a little bit higher and it's a very popular place to eat in Serbia with a lot of companies going there on a business lunch or dinner. You should always call to reserve a table. It's located close to the city center next to the football stadion. It's also perfect for celebrations and weddings since it's very big and well organised. Would recommend for anyone wanting to taste excellent traditional serbian dishes and drinks in a great athmosphere.
