Great serbian food and atmosphere. Love the summer garden and the little breeze in the hot summer days. Always a great experience. Don't expect high cuisine, it's a serbian bbq restaurant...

It's quite a big restaurant, always very crowded but the food is very tasty - čevapčiči, zeljanice, prabranac, kajmak and fresh bread. Prices are resonable and staff is very welcoming.

Are you hungry and want to eat some balkan food? This is the place. Located a bit outside the city center, with great service (very friendly), reasonable prices and good food ! I've eaten here several times, make sure you try their "prebranac" and pancakes with icecream. Highly recommended !

I didn't visit the restaurant but I tried their meat burger at the Friday market in Ljubljana. It was so tasty! I will be dreaming of it for days to come!! I wish I had more time to visit the place properly. Yum!

We regularly stop at this restaurant after walking around Tivoli park and enjoy sitting outside in this peaceful location on fresh air or in the cosy rooms inside. Always order "Prebranac" (baked beans with onions) - it is always excellent and freshly baked. We also like there Razhnichi (mixed grilled meat), horse medallions, baked young lamb (weekends only), grilled pork... More

Big portions for reasonable price. The communication was hard because the waiter did not know English too much. Anyway the food deserves a trip there.

Great barbecue with traditional sebian dished. Try also grilled paprika, kajmak and pancakes. Garden to kill for, perfect for afternoons in summer. Place for kids as well, nice playground nearby. Large parking lot. After the lunch take stroll to nearby Roznik hill.

Firstly the location of this place is great. It is located under the hill not far from the city zoo and due to that it is very quite place. The staff is very friendly. The food is great and the portions are really big so you will not stay hungry that is guaranteed. We had some "cevapcici" with "kajmak" and... More

If you like Balkan cuisine then it is the right place for you. Even vegetarians find interesting combinations. Excellent dessert is cooked stiffed apple with walnuts and whipped cream called "Tufahiya". Great in winter as much as in spring or any other season time because of the warmth inside and a big garden outside. A big of parking area.

Thank Vugy14
