The restaurant is situated on a riverbank barge. You’ll see a walkway with frog statues inside. Upon arrival, we were shown to our seats and coats taken to the cloakroom. The server was extremely knowledgeable and provided recommendations which turned out to be better than...what we had planned to order for starters. Would highly recommend the Serbian starter platter. He also brought catch of the day over where you can choose the fish or stick with their regular a la carte menu. Predominantly fish based however there were some meat based dishes and local sausages. The wine list was pretty comprehensive. Overall, the food and service was excellent. The restaurant is on the pricier side but definitely felt like a unique experience and would visit again for a one off occasion. Only feedback would be it was quite chilly so take a shawl / similarMore

After a certain period of time, I was again in the Zabar restaurant and I have to admit that they are even better than before. Some new energy is obvious. The food is delicious and the service is excellent. Wonderful place at the river Danube.

i start not to trust anymore Trip advisor for my holidays. How you can give to this Restaurant Certificate of Excellence? first extremely overcharged. Menu very poor. prices extremely expensive. i was there on Tuesday night with a friend. we were alone. i ordered fish...soup and i found bones in the soup. i complained and the waiter said just sorry. me personally i have big problem with the fish bones. i can even go to Hospital if i am not very careful. Thanks God i was. main course my friend ordered perch filet and gave me a small piece to try even there i found fish bones. my main course consists of prawns , octapus and sea bass filet. even in sea bass filet i found bones. i was very upset and when i complained again that everywhere bones the waiter said: mistake from the kitchen. is it enough? i am working at the Tourism Branch and the professional way if happens something similar:1.is coming the Restaurant Manager and apologizes, then compensates full amount wherever was the problem and at the end they bring something similar without extra charge. Nothing happened. very unprofesional Restaurant , risky and extremely expensive. if they are not able to make fish filet better to avoid it. and what about the soup ?More

The food in Zabar is Amazing! Everything you order is delicious, nice decorated, huge portions, so well selected. Another plus is the personell, everybody is very kind, friendly, funny but very proffessional at the same time. Zabar also has a rich wine card, as well...as the delicious desserts! My personally favorite Zabar's dish is a duck leg confit, but they serve very good fish too! Also, the appetizer Zabar is a must to start with. The place itself is theme decorated, beautiful and interesting. They also have 'separate' dining rooms for intimate occasions, that are very comfortable and might say romantic. Restaurant is located in well known Belgradian area. Kindly recommended to all foreigners and locals.More

This is truly a great place for a nice dinner right on the Danube. Extensive and fairly creative menu with signature dishes ranging from main to desserts. Very good wine selection and the sommelier is happy to propose something if you are in doubt. Excellent...service. Keep in mind that their portions are quite big, so they can be easily shared!More
