The atmosphere and the service are both quite good, while the food is just okay. It seems like a spot intended for tourists and their prices reflect that. One thing to add was towards the end of my meal, a seemingly homeless man came in...More

Serbian cuisine with excellent quality food. Portions are not really big, but sufficient enough and prices are a little high for Serbian standards. Nevertheless the quality of the food and the way traditional flavors are cooked, will compensate you... Advise: Go for the stew ...

Description
A chain of ethno restaurants Zavicaj is reflected in ethno decor which is creating tempting atmosphere for those who want to experience this authentic ambient. Plates, bowls, cups, and cutlery are made of pottery. Beer is served in mugs made of clay, and traditional drink called ,,rakija" is served in so called "čokančić" that is actually unique type of a small traditional bottle. If you just take a look of the interior you can see decorated coffee pots on wooden shelves, very old coffee mills and irons and similar details. The parts of Serbian costume and heritage are hanging on the walls. You are going to be attracted with interesting beautiful pieces of Serbian folk art like. Plaid tablecloth and wooden chairs, wooden benches covered with a knitted patchwork are creating warm homely ambient. We tried to make each restaurant reflection of Serbian heritage, where you can find handmade crafts from the hands of our grandmothers, ethno clothes, and walls decorated with big number of characteristic details and old object..
