A cocktail bar in a prime location, I still expected a little more and better cocktails. The music was also too loud for this profile of the place. Also, the crowd was too big if you take into account that this was not a nightclub,...just a cocktail bar, and cocktail places are looking for a slightly more pleasant atmosphere. Also, the quantitative content of the cocktail I ordered was very limited and there were not enough ingredients to experience the cocktail properly. It's a shame because I was hoping to find the right place to enjoy it.More

Professional, pleasant, comfortable, tasty, simply outstanding! Profesional, well educated bartenders who treat you as a valuable customer, and/or a friend. Beautifully decorated, cozy place, with great music (one time funky / jazzy, other times 70'-80' rock classic). Cocktails are simple amazing, and very personal. There...is no menu, rather you speak to staff and they see what should suite you the best. Make sure to reserve your place. If this was NY or London you'd have to reserve the table 2 years in advance (and pay in gold).More

Probably the best bar I’ve ever been to. Tucked away, with no sign and a doorbell to get in…it’s worth taking time to seek out. Sit at the bar, describe the drinks or the mood you are in and in front of you will appear...the cocktail you need. With flair and style the engaging bartenders will mix for you, with a bit of cocktail theatre a drink to delight your taste buds. Their engaging conversation and the service from opening the door, to taking your coat, to mixing the drink, to remembering your name is how all good cocktail bars should be run. This is the bar I could happily spend my cocktail drinking hours….and next time we’re In Belgrade we will be back to comfortably sit at the bar, soak up the atmosphere, enjoy the music, the art of mixology and the company. Thank you to Anthony, for his intriguing and interesting conversation…and of course of one of the best cocktails I’ve ever had.More

It is not only a bar, it is an experience! Although it is located in a very touristic area, Ridder is one of the best bars in the town of Beograd! Professional service, excellent communication and very friendly staff! Totally recommended!

The Riddle Bar is an American-style cocktail bar or speakeasy. It's a passion project of a handful of young bartenders -- seems like it wants to be Belgrade's Dead Rabbit (New York), or maybe Roberto's (Vienna), but it is very much its own eclectic, comfortable...place. Tucked away at one end of Skadarlija, it's a little difficult to find but it is well worth seeking out. Once you find it and settle in, the bartenders will engage you in conversation (in perfect English). There is no menu. What liquor do you like to drink? What have been your favorites in the past? Are you thirsty, or in the mood for something savory? Then, armed with your answers, they will create a cocktail that meets your needs of the moment. It might involve pesto, it might involve miso, it might be a more familiar boulevardier, but it is always -- always -- what you want but didn't know you wanted. You can even record your drink so they know what you ordered, and liked, last time. Like a good local bar, the bartenders will speak with you, and listen to you, about almost any subject. And like a good local bar, you'll want to come back regularly. Also, best collection of good American music in Belgrade.More

Best cocktail bar I’ve been in a while: you tell the staff what you feel like and they’ll surprise you with a custom-made cocktail. Top quality ingredients and excellent barmen, creative, knowledgeable, attentive but not overbearing. And they give you plenty of water so the...next morning so you won’t regret it 😅More

We stumbled across this real gem in the heart of town and were so impressed by the beautiful interior but even more so by the knowledgable and charismatic staff. They manage to strike the perfect balance between taking seriously the art of mixology whilst personalising...the experience for customers fortunate enough to be passing through, a riddle most other bars fail to solve.More

Great bar serving Balkan twists on classic cocktails. (You can get the originals, too, but why would you?) Super friendly and knowledgable staff and a room way beyond cool. Nice music choices round out the perfect place to chill. Recommend unreservedly.
