About
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..

The meal is a typical Serbian cuisine. I have eaten a starter based on cut meat, mushroom soup, and a meat-based main course. All the food that is quite abundant is of excellent quality and the plates are well served. The atmosphere is very family-oriented.

Excellent service, delicious food, and a plethora of traditional dishes make Zavicaj one of my go-to restaurants anytime I'm in Belgrade. The option of having some sort of platter as well as a full dish is wonderful as people's appetites and cravings vary throughout the day. Definitely try the kajmak with some lepinja - best kajmak I've had so far.

Perfect experience! Traditional home style food- cooked to perfection! Both meat and vegetarian dishes very tasty and freshly prepared when ordered. Spotless clean. Dedicated non- smoking zone. Great deserts! Excellent service! We will be back ( probably tomorrow:))

While on vacation, I came to have a lunch. The waiter saw that I'm tourist and thought that don't know anything about local food. Odered meal and get complete different meal than ordered what was in addition cold as well and sausage was not ready for eat, raw and cold. This is shame and cheating of people from abroad. Since I remained hungry, ordered portion of ajvar. Not recommended, disaster, never again, avoid 100%. Staff and ambient was friendly!

Really strange place. We (two adults and two children) were placed at a table right next to the toilet, although there were empty tables both inside and outside (where er asked to be seated). We asked twice if we could move to another table but we were told that the tables were all reserved but when we left fifteen minutes before the restaurant closed, the tables were still empty. We got the starter plate and the main courses all at the same time, and the waitors were generally rude and slow. The food was okay but it is certainly not a place we can recommend - there seems to be a problem with the culture or maybe they just don’t like tourists.

I stumbled upon this restaurant while wandering around Belgrade and entered it because I saw a room where nobody seemed to be smoking. Indeed, the restaurant has a separate non-smoking section, which meant that finally I could enjoy a Serbian restaurant meal while still being able to breathe normally. The dish I ordered - leskovačka mućkalica - was good. The pork was cooked perfectly and had a delicious grilled flavour. The dish was, however, a bit heavy on the tomatoes, with fewer peppers than I would have expected. The potatoes accompanying the mućkalica were cooked perfectly, with just the right amount of salt. The bread was very fresh and delicious. My highest praise goes to the waiters at this restaurant. They were friendly and very patient with my poor Serbian language skills. I also noted that they were extremely attentive and gave me good advice on portion sizes. As soon as I finished something, they came immediately to clear the used dishes and to see whether I needed anything else. Their warmth made this restaurant special. Overall, the restaurant was clean and bright. The prices were quite fair.

Very good Serbian cuisine. Fantastic hot peppers. The service is also outstanding, just like visiting your relatives. The waiter recommended very good food and side dishes that would go well with the food. Recommend this place if you want to eat real Serbian food!

This place was recommended by our local host as one of the best traditional restaurants in Belgrade. She’s right & we really enjoyed every bite of our meal. We ordered Goulash & Pork stew with warm bread on the side. Both are delicious. Tender meat, fresh, served warm & super tasty. Don’t forget to order Rakia as well, is a must. Service was impeccable, the staff are helpful & attentive. Warm atmosphere, cosy and well decorated in their traditional style. They also have smoking and non smoking area. Price are affordable and you can pay by card. As foreigner, we feel welcomed. We highly recommend this place for everyone who’s looking for local food experience in Serbia.

Our hotel (Feel Belgrade) recommended this place to us. We thought we'd have a look at the menu prior to booking a table for that night, but ended up having a very good late breakfast of scrambled eggs, hot bread and freshly squeezed orange juice. We booked for dinner and had the beef goulash with mash (beef was excellent) and the grilled squid. Highly recommended.

High recommend. Home made grappa and very good wine. Food was amazing. We tryed pork neck and meat balls and they were little bit spicy but it must be like that. Everything is domestic, waiters were very kind.

It was only place in street with free table. Restaurant is clean and nice, music is good and nice. Prices are ok, similar as others. Food is not great not terrible but it could be better and you cant compare with competitors near. Stuff was generally good and we were thinking about rate 4/5 but, we have but! After we make payment with credit card in our bill was drinks that we didnt order for more then 20 euros. I ask barmen about it and he says I drink it but ok I will give you money back! He give me money, then I ask about other point on invoice "Cuve 0.2 x2 400 dinars" he say it is for napkins, forks, spoon!!! Rly? There was 3 of us u put 2 times and 0.2 of wine!!! So, im not guy who gives low rates "usually 4 or 5", I overrate restourants but this place avoid! Dont give them chance to make monkey of you.

We went to this place for dinner by chance on this christmas eve, As the other restaurants in that area were fully booked . Here we were warmly received by the Manager and gave us a place to sit and dine. Service was good and so was the food. Please try the local cuisine, the chevapi, sarma, the soups etc . The food was very good that we even visited this place again ( once for breakfast and again for dinner )

Great quaint restaurant but despite the sign there is smoking inside the restaurant. Fortunately the food is delicious and nicely prepared. Beef shank was braised and served with mash potatoes and yummy sauce. Cabbage rolls were also delicious. Chicken and veal soups were amazing. Adequate friendly service
