This restaurant has the reputation of being the best and priciest in town. I arrived and found it completely empty, but was told I couldn't have a table as I needed a reservation. Understandable if the place was full, but it was deserted, and huge, and given the time of night it was unlikely every table was already booked up... More

One of my favourite restaurants in Nis, with amazing old-school atmosphere, very rich menu and great food. Staff are polite, prices moderate. Recommended.

We had finally found restaurant with "no smoking" sticker. Then we asked to be seated to no smokers area. The waiter just took ash tray from a table and seated us next to smoking guests. Then we ordered mashed potatoes and salty potato. We got fries. But the Pljeskavica was great! :D

We've booked this place for New Year and I might say that we are more than dissapointed. It was the most expensive and famous place in Nis, but total dissapointment. The food for the New Year dinner was hilarious - the portions were really small and the quality way below average for Serbia. We've received a few pieces of salami... More

Nice atmosphere, nice ambient, good food, kind waiters. You should try chickend fingers "carski prsti" with special sauce! Amazing nightlife during weekend with live music!

Nice enough place but not the standards of food quality I usually get in Serbia. Good wines, lovely staff, nice decor. I'd go there if other places were fully booked only.

This place is one of my favourites in Nis, when it comes to traditional Serbian cuisine, with a lot of local flavour. Low to moderate prices, good location, wide variety of food choices - recommended.

The place has a realy nice ambient. They have live music but they were not pushy which is a nice change. Food was average and could be better.

Food is good although prices are a bit higher comparing with other kafanas... But the most important thing is- avoid it on weekend evening...or go if you want to see typical Friday night for most of young people... Don't want to explane more, go and check by yourself! :)
