Big disappointment !!! Waiters disorganized, food selection quite large, but the quality very very poor. Cold food is brought in front of the guests, meat made without much imagination ... Chicken and turkey completely dry toasted .... very bad. Not a restaurant to recommend.

Very good food and quiet ambiance. Good restaurant for a romantic moment. Good advise from the waiter. We tried specialty of the chef. Veal « sous vide ». Perfect. Tender and tasty.

Truly magical, a New Balkan cuisine restaurant located in a 143-year-old home in Nis, Serbia. The staff were incredible, we had a fun lunch with our lovely waiter and loved the warm welcome we received. The atmosphere was very relaxing as you dined in the...garden outdoors, imagine fine dining in your backyard, this was the ambience, surrounded by beautiful trees. A wonderful wine list of the very best wines from the Balkans, with a small sample of fine Italian wines. We were recommended a Serbian Pinot Noir '2012 Aleksandrovic Trijumf Noir' to complement our lamb, it is definitely now on the top of our list. Excellent value at $50 AUD. The food was exceptional. We started out with a very fresh Caesar Salad, followed by a lamb risotto full of flavour, we couldn't pass up the lamb and were grateful we didn't, it was very tasty and tender. If you are in Nis, then don't miss your chance dining at Stambolijskis Restaurant, you will be taken on a food and wine journey to remember.More

I unfortunately have to give to this restaurant only three stars because the waiter was not courteous with us. The quality of the food is in fact 5 stars, but we found a waiter who used a very unpleasant irony because we were Italians. He...started making jokes that weren't funny at all. At the end of the dinner, even after leaving him a big tip, he didn't even say hello to us when we left. If foreigners are not well liked in this restaurant, maybe they could write it already at the entrance... I recommend the owner to talk to some of his waiters. Recommended for the food, but not for the service.More

I ordered Lamb prepared the traditionalway, pear rakia and sallad. The mutton was very delicious. I enjoy the lovely food and the restaurang environment. And the last but very important is the friendly waiter.

Come here with my girlfriend, first time I had been to Stambijski and I was so impressed. The service was fantastic from the moment we got there to the moment we left. Inside the garden area and the building are very elegant and a great...setting for an evening meal. It’s expensive for Nis but you get what you pay for, for English people reading this expect to pay maybe just short or similar of what you would pay in England compared to other places in Nis which would be a 1/3 of English prices. However I was happy to pay this as the quality of food and service was better than anywhere else I’d been. If I could offer advice to staff there, I would recommended a couple who are dining to order one main dish to share, but accompany this with side dishes. I found I had a plate of lamb and my girlfriend a plate of chicken which tasted great but one would have been enough and then we could have taken advantage of sides. I think this advice would be welcome. To summaries a fantastic place, great service, good setting and great food. Keep up the good work.More

We visited this restaurant at the end of January and it was a fantastic experience. The food was amazing (especially the salads), the service was amazing, and it’s the only restaurant I’ve been in in Serbia that didn’t smell like smoke. We will definitely return.
