I like this place a lot. Traditional, home-made meals, no fuss, cosy and local. I like their “taverna-like” decor. The staff is always very friendly. My go-to place in Vračar. Minus for people smoking inside but this is common for all places in Serbia, sadly...:(More

We live just a few blocks away but this is one of our go-to restaurants in downtown Belgrade. It is right next to the Kalenic market and was one of the first restaurants I visited the first time I was here 12 years ago. This...is one of the best Serbian grills in town. They cook their grilled meat to perfection. The chicken is never overdone and we order the chicken wrapped in bacon often. All of the skewers are outstanding. There Karađorđeva either chicken or veal wrapped around kajmak bread and fired in a roll is more than you can eat. We always get the cabbage and shopska salad They serve several Serian wines, have great Rakia and plenty of beers and you not pay much for the meal.More

We live nearby this place and although we originally ate here often, we stopped going because the wait staff are beyond rude. Two or three times we have been seated at the table, ordered food, and then are told to move tables because “someone else”...had reserved the table where we were seated. This is not an isolated event, it seems to be the policy of this restaurant. There are other places to eat in this neighborhood where the wait staff are capable of showing customers basic courtesy.More

While she was entering the restaurant, a waitor in Kalenic told my friend with a handicap to move away her walking device because it was "revolting" (move it where?!) . What a shameful and inhuman act! A restaurant to avoid until they prove capable of...choosing better their staff. Dok je ulazila u kafanu Kalenic, kelner je mojoj prijateljici sa hendikepom rekao da skloni svoju spravu koju koristi pri hodanju zato sto je "degutantna".(gde da skloni?!) Kakva sramota i nehumanost! Kafana za izbegavati dokle god ne porade na biranje kvalitetnijeg osoblja.More

Old, traditional "kafana" where you can try domestic food. The atmosphere is like it should be in Serbian "kafana". It is a special pearl in heart of Vračar. Totally different filing from going to classy restaurant. Feel Serbian "kafana"❗️Enjoy it‼️

I wouldn't call it my favourite restaurant, but it is certainly in top three. It sells all of the classics you'll find in other places but also other dishes that you won't see anywhere else! If you come any evening of the week, this place...will always be full and for a reason. Lots of locals enjoy their dinners here although also many tourists and the staff happily explain the menu to us.More

I see local celebrities, tourists, expats, locals eating here, but the place has more of a reputation than it deserves. For spectacular Serbian food, this one is only good for convenience of the location. Not memorable, and staff is always hustling. Overrated.

If you really want to try real Serbian dishes then this restaurant is the right place. They have some old dishes that are rare and can not be found in other restaurants (for example, a dish in Serbian called "Brizle"). That dish has an unusual...taste, but it is tasty for me - I like to try something new.More

A traditional Serbian Kafana. Great Grilled Meat plates. We ate Mixed Grill and Cevapcici. They tasted perfect. Good Value and big Portions. Also the Salads are real fresh. The Cabbage Salad is very tasty
