If you want to experience true Serbia, this is the place. Welcoming and knowledgeable waiters, nice subtle misic, meals so well prepared you will be stunned. Being from Serbia I can guarantee you won’t find better “local” cuisine.

Tourists Unwelcome : My First Negative Rating Ever, Anywhere I have travelled to a LOT of countries, I have worked In many restaurants and owned my own Café for 13 years. Out for respect I ALWAYS ask everywhere “do you speak English or French -...I never assume people speak English - and if not I try to speak the host language if I can. I have NEVER in my life been made to feel so unwelcome anywhere in the world as in this restaurant. The waiter who was an older gentleman said in Serbian “I am a Nationalist” - well to that effect. So I don’t even give this place a star because I walked in and walked out. There are many other options in Niš. So to all my international jazz friends, when visiting or performing in Niš for the International Jazz Festival, please do not go to this restaurant because it is most definitely not welcoming to any International visitors.More

Went there for dinner with my wife. The waiter was really cool and polite, and understood what we want when we told him we wanna try something local ... from the spirits to the main dish. Anything he brought us was really delicious, wish i...had a second stomack so I could have tried more dishes. The place is really comfy as well! Definetly will recommend anyone visiting Nis, and will be back again.More

Best food in Niš. Juneći ustipci are something you can’t try in any other part of Serbia like here. Highly recommend!

Cozy restaurant, very kind waiter and fast service. Another very important thing is that the bathrooms were very well cleaned and spotless. After eating great food the bill came and it was a lot less than what we thought. If I return to Nis I...will definitely go back to this restaurant. Compliments.More
