We went for a dinner on a warm summer evening in August. The garden is beatiful, stylish, tables with white crisp cloths and napkins and waiting staff nice and helpful. There was lovely live music in the background. And the food… Serbian base with modern...and innovative twists. Veal chops and mangulica that we had were superb and desserts were divine. Wine list is good too. Expensive, but well worth the money. This place is a must when you are in Belgrade.More

I went there as a part of an academic celebration (25 people), waiters were extremely swift and knowledgeable of the offer, both wine and food-wise, treating every guest with due diligence. The selection of appetizers and cold cuts was abundant, steak tartare with homemade butter...left special impressions. As the main course, I had a beefsteak in green pepper sauce which was prepared exactly according to my requirements and very appealing. Among the best experiences in Belgrade, highly recommended!!!More

Step back in time to an era of exquisite fine dining with Parisian vibes. This beautiful restaurant exudes class and is tucked away in a quiet tree-lined street in the heart of Belgrade. The restaurant is housed in a beautiful home built in the mid-19th...century, with stunning decor and a wonderful ambience. Exceptional service, you are greeted with smiles and positive energy from the entire team. Our waiter was an absolute delight and understood our dining preferences instantly, slow and steady to enjoy our lazy long lunch. A menu that tempts your tastebuds with bursts of flavours as the chef takes you on a journey, traditional Serbian cuisine, all ingredients sourced locally. We dined our way through the afternoon and were incredibly impressed by each and every choice. We can't wait to return and continue the journey and sample more of the delicious dishes. Well-selected wine choices complement the cuisine. The menu is very extensive, with a wonderful variety of local wines to satisfy everyone's palate. All your favourite cocktails are available too. We absolutely loved our dining experience, especially outdoors under the leafy glass-enclosed atrium. We cannot recommend Klub književnika highly enough.More

It would not be an exaggeration to say this was perhaps my most enjoyable evening spent dining at a fine restaurant. Impeccable service, delicious food (the warm lamb pie starter is one of the best tastes I’ve ever experienced), beautiful ambiance with French music to...complement a lively conversation, and fortifying plum and blueberry rakija. I am certain to return next time I come to Belgrade. Read no further and just trust me.More
