I have many friends and relatives who don’t live in Belgrade. They come to the capital of Serbia from time to time and when they visit, they always wont to go some famous and interesting places. I always find sometime to show them around. There...are many new clubs, coffee shops, restaurants but one of my favourite once is an old and traditional restaurant in the city center. It is ,,Kolarac” and it is located in Knez Mihailova street. I know the place very well because I often go there with my parents. It is old but not old-fashioned. And I like it because it is clean inside, waiters are polite and kind. They are always ready to recommend us the best meal of the day. My parents and I love traditional Serbian food so we always order some local dishes. My favourite is chicken with sesame and Serbian salad. They have all types of food, but desserts are only homemade, like baklava, orasnice (biscuits with nuts), tulumba etc. I am a younger generation and we are all addicted to internet. So, when I wont to tell someone about the best places in the city, I tell them about ,,Kolarac”. They are on instagram and I open there homepage and also show photos (@restorankolarac) . That way my friends and relatives hear a good story and also see how beautiful the place is inside. Kolarac is the first restaurant that I would take my guests to. I feel great there, atmosphere is relaxing and nice. Food is fantastic and people who work there and guests are kind and good mood. In my opinion, together with Skadarlija and few other old places, is ist real soul of Belgrade. :)More

We had an outstanding evening here. The large menu offers something for everyone. With a focus on traditional Serbian food done right and with a fresh twist, we were suspicious when the very competent waiter suggested we order the most expensive red wine. But then...he said we should not order two starters as portions are large ( they are), so credibility returned. He was correct: great wine that complemented the food perfectly. If you’re a tourist, or local, and you want to know what terrific Serbian food is like, come here. Right on the main pedestrian street. Bravo.More

After walking the fortress of Kalemegdan we were looking for a place to grab some dinner - on Knez Mihailova street. And here are the foundings: - location - on Knez Mihailova street, and since its pedestrian only you can get there by car, need...to park in the proximity and walk the the restaurant. Good seating capacity but keep in mind 1 thing, in Serbia is still allowed to smoke inside restaurants and a majority of public places too, so this restaurant is no difference - so be prepared ashtray is on the table and people will be smoking around you. - service - prompt and fast, wiater speaking good english, so no issue in terms of communication. - food - the menu is extensive, we ordered Pljeskavica and Ribs , both very tasty and cook very nice, ribs were melting of the bone and the pljeskavica was moist but done. Just to be on the same page this is not a fine dining restaurant - but the food we had was very good. - prices - I've chosen mid range due to the quality of the food, but for sure the prices are pocket friendly and you can pay with credit card. Overall a good place - keep in mind its allowed to smoke inside - food was very good, even that it was not special it was very good food.More

They served us grilled chicken fillet and the potatoes that was served with chicken tastes even better than the chicken. Chicken is so tough to cut. Rubber-like and very bland. We asked for butter and the lady server even answered unpolitely with a NO! First...time to visit this resto and we were very disappointed! 😡More

Great restaurant with a lot of interesting options, very helpful wait staff, in a perfect location right along one of the main pedestrian walkways. Sasha, one of the managers, even took time out to advise me not only on the best traditional cuisine options to...try but also to give me advice on things to see and do while in the area. The food was fantastic, the venue was ideal, and the people there were wonderful. Highly recommend.More

Great location and good selection of foods. Even though it is a bit touristy, still it gives you good value for your money. The sausages and cevatcari were quite tasty. It is definitely worth to have at least a cup of coffee and enjoy the...passerbys.More

We read about Restoran Kolarac in a guide book and decided to make a reservation. Since it was a nice evening, we were able to sit outside and enjoy the excellent people watching. We ordered the chicken with cheese and the pork with cheese. The...pork was very dry, but passable. The total bill, including a bottle of wine, was about $50. A decent dining choice on the pedestrian street! In addition, the restaurant was responsive and polite to email inquiries, which I really appreciated.More

At the main pedestrian street his restaurant is actually better, than you might think. You can sit outside or inside with nice decor. Good service from the friendly staff and fine food.The beef goulash with mashed potatoes was pretty satisfying along with a big glass...of draft beer and so was the veal soup with vegetables. Definitely worth it!More
