There are plenty of five star reviews on here, but something holds me back.
The food was unquestionably good, being a modern and creative take on Serbian food that places it together with modern fine dining service and presentation. We started with a cheese pie and a dish of pulled pork with apricots. The former was rather uninteresting - it may be authentic, but it lacked flavour compared to very similar dishes served in, for example, Greece. The pulled pork was a different story, with the central mash of pulled pork and apricots making a crisp pleasant starter, bulked out by the slices of rather delicate sliced pork.
For main courses we had veal in a white wine sauce, and 'seven times stabbed pork'. The veal was good quality and perfectly cooked, but lacked the innovation and wow factor that I sense this restaurant is trying to achieve with its food. The pork was chosen for its name, and it did create an impression with its presentation. This was not a very practical design however, and suspending your pork in mid-air is not a particularly good way to keep it warm. I had to rush it down. It had been marinaded and cooked to perfection in a sort of barbecue sauce. It was nice, but as a Brit it reminded me of nothing more than the spare ribs you get with a chinese takeaway. It was served with, among other things, a sour cream ice cream. This was fabulous, the most innovative product on the table, and is the best example of how this restaurant could easily enter the top tier of fine dining.
At the waiter's insistence we had a cherry tomato salad that we didn't need, but was perfectly prepared and delicious.
My friend insisted we have boring old rose, so I can't review the wine. The prices on the menu didn't look unreasonable.
In conclusion this restaurant is a solid 4.5 out of 5, apart from when it shows the odd flash of brilliance. I feel mean with my four star rating, but this establishment has probably reached the point where it starts getting fours from fussier customers than the ones that used to give it fives. With further refinement it could easily be one of the best restaurants I've visited in Eastern Europe.
