Location and contact

Skadarlija's Dva jelena has been keeping its bohemian spirit and tradition alive for 180 years now. As Dva jelena leaves its mark on both Skadarlija and Belgrade, its patrons leave theirs on the legendary tavern. This perpetual interaction lends shape to the gourmet dishes and the inimitable nightlife of the Serbian metropolis. Generations of legendary bohemians have weaved their tales into the walls of this edifice. Today, the tavern echoes with myriad languages from all over the world, and its common language is the language of hedonism, which reflects the city's bohemian vibe against the sounds of the lute in the background. Dva jelena represent a part of Belgrade's history - a part where

This is a must try restaurant. Live music is abit whacky but make sure you are in a room with the band. The staff have very good English. The food is tradtional and excellent. I highly recommend the ox cheeks- very tender and tasty!

To be fair, our expectations weren’t that high after reading the last two reviews. We wanted to give it a whirl though, & I’m so so glad we did. It was lunch time, so the restaurant was not very busy (perhaps that’s why the waiters...More

Our first time in Serbia, Belgrade. We heard this place was good. The best thing about this place was leaving. Waiters miserable no welcome or hello. No goodbye or thank you. The atmosphere was like a old folks home. Better atmosphere in the local graveyard....More

Apart from a somehow pathetic behaviour of our waiter - we noticed that other waiters were very friendly - we had a beautiful dinner, value for money. Very good dinner package with live music.

Nov. 2018: one of the most unpleasant restaurant experiences ever. Made a reservation for non-smoking, and many diners were smoking right under the "no smoking" signs. My complaint to the staff was met with a shrug and the excuse that "it's the weekend." Staff refused...More
