Have been here many times. If you like Serbian food this is your place. Food is amazing and you get portions that would feed an army. Location is outside of town but worth the drive - every time!!!

This restaurant, just outside of Pristina on the road to Skopje, serves traditional Albanian and Serbian food. So if you want to eat some pork, go there. Quality is good enough. Many visitors, which mostly means fresh food. In- and outside can have a little updating and dusting.

Excellent food and staff!! You will come again, that I can guarantee!! If u are fond of pork meat, that is the place to go in Pristine, cause there's not a lot of them around. ;-)

Ciao is not actually a Serbian restaurant, but frequented by people of all ethnicities and is located in the southern Pristina suburbs. The owners are actually Montenegrin and the restaurant serves common food found in the Balkans. I frequented this restaurant monthly at least once and have never had a bad meal. The waiter is very attentive and sometimes comes... More

The food is excellent, like home made. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Prices are very reasonable. In summer You can sit in a small... More

Small rustic Serbian restaurant, just outside Pristina, very close to the main road to Skopje. A lot of pork dishes on the menu. Warm atmosphere and friendly service. Ask for the day's soup - we had the only one available that day: lamb and vegetables. Delicious in its simplicity. The mixed salad was good, the sausage was tasty and the... More

This is a great little place that is far enough outside of town to avoid all of Pristinas more annoying traits. The food served is Serbian, and whilst it's not flashy or gourmet, it is spectacularly simple and to great effect. No frozen chicken breasts here! So if your looking for a good, hearty and simple meal then this is... More
