“Best steak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Fantastic. Set menu. If you love red meat than go here. The juiciest, tenderist steak I've had in a very long time. It's 3 courses and you will notgo home hungry. The homemade condiments and salads are a perfect accompliment and you just can't go wrong.

“Traditional continental meat with side salad. A carnivore's heaven.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We started with a pork sausage which has the very traditional and very delicious European flavours. This dish with the cabbage salad took me straight back to Serbia. Then we had a meat platter of pork, liver and beef. Again, tasty tender morsels which go great with a Stockman's red wine. Then the main steak. Waiter brings out a platter with small and large selections of eye fillet, rump and beautifully marbled porterhouse. I had the eye fillet medium rare and it was steak perfection. Slightly crisp outside and beautifully tender and very juicy steak. Dessert was a thin pancake with strawberries and ice cream. Nothing too special but I nice way to finish such a big meal. Went great with the De Bortoli dessert wine. If steak is what you want with no fancy sauces sides or dressings, a steak is what you will get. I would have loved a potato with my steak, but here, there's no room as the steak is the star attraction. Definitely not recommended for vegetarians, but strongly recommended for meat lovers. Staff were friendly and attentive. Atmosphere is small and cosy and you're surrounded by the history of the place. Great steakhouse!

“Great steaks and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Went to Vlado,s for a business dinner with locals as well as other international guests. A fixed menu for the evening so was easy to choose the meal. The steaks were cooked perfectly. The wine and beer list was extensive. Easy to have a conversion. Good attentive waiting. Clearly one that is popular with the regulars who seemed to know all of the staff. Not a place for vegetarians.
