We had a meat and cheese platter with specialties from Vojvodinja and it was very good. The local cheese is very salty. The pork and dumplings were fantastic.

Restaurant serves great food, staff are extremely pleasant, genteel and polite and atmosphere is great. I visit Veliki often and food is always fresh and extremely tasteful. They have great mouth-watering desserts but before that be sure to try yummy meat combination Veliki. Overall this is a great dining experience, not to be missed. See you soon

After crossing all the balkan capitals and other major cities in this place I found an oasis of tastes. Pork ribs with apple sauce is a must. Big portions delicious dishes in reasonable prices. What else someone can ask for.
