Saran

Reviewed By Gabriel H - Bellaire, Texas, United States

Located on the Northern side of town, in Zemun, this is one of the most popular rewtaurants in Belgrade, frequented by both locals and visitors. On the Danube shore, it offers indoor and outdoor seatiing. The decor is somewhat rustic, with lots of wood, and yeat, elegant dinner service. The major focus of the menu is fish (Saran means carp), but there are a few other items on the menu, for those who do not favor fish or seafood. Service is very good, although it slows down when the place fills up. The wine list is good and the place is cozy and attractive. In the evenings, it can be quite noisy.

Mala Fabrika Ukusa

I have just discovered a great restaurant close to the Temple of Sveti Sava. Food is extraordinary! It's in the Nebojsina street and the name of the restaurant is 'Mala Fabrika ukusa' ( Small taste factory). Ecellent place, with nice open garden in the summer time.

Reviewed By Rockmantic - Frankfurt, Germany

One of the best outdoor Seating areas for the summer. The menu changes with seasons and it's worth visiting regularly to see what's new. Most of the menu is usually traditional Serbian food with a modern twist. The portions are properly sized, neither too small...MoreHi there, Thank you for taking the time to review us. It’s a pleasure to read your positive impressions of our restaurant and we look forward to welcoming you back again soon! Best regards, MFU

Really amazing! Great menu - everything sounded sooo good - really long pasta menu. We went with the salmon bruschetta appetizer, mixed green salad, ribeye and the Chicken roll! Gorgonzola cheese was really amazing and both dishes tasted fantastic! Outstanding service - server was really helpful. Not one single complaint! Definitely on top of my list when I return...

Mrak

Reviewed By Foodslave - Belgrade, Serbia

The restaurant is near to the high way Niš-Belgrade. Whenever I am returning from Sofia or Skopje, it's ideal lunch opportunity for me. Niš is town well known with his very good grilled meat, I think the best in Serbia. MRAK (DARK) is the best in Niš.The owner is only who is preparing the meat. The only who has access to the grill! But not only the meat is perfect, but (traditional Serbian) starters and salads as well. The bread is hot. They really take care about everything. I have high food criteria, but this place I always left satisfied, without any complain. Service is expirienced and kind. Only, don't expect a nice setting.

Zavicaj Restaurant

A chain of ethno restaurants Zavicaj is reflected in ethno decor which is creating tempting atmosphere for those who want to experience this authentic ambient. Plates, bowls, cups, and cutlery are made of pottery. Beer is served in mugs made of clay, and traditional drink called ,,rakija" is served in so called "čokančić" that is actually unique type of a small traditional bottle. If you just take a look of the interior you can see decorated coffee pots on wooden shelves, very old coffee mills and irons and similar details. The parts of Serbian costume and heritage are hanging on the walls. You are going to be attracted with interesting beautiful pieces of Serbian folk art like. Plaid tablecloth and wooden chairs, wooden benches covered with a knitted patchwork are creating warm homely ambient. We tried to make each restaurant reflection of Serbian heritage, where you can find handmade crafts from the hands of our grandmothers, ethno clothes, and walls decorated with big number of characteristic details and old object..

There are plenty of Serbian restaurants in Belgrade to choose from. Some are better than others, but generally there isn’t much difference between the traditional ones.
Make sure you a truly hungry before you step into this restaurant. The servings are huge. I don’t think I’ve eaten so much meat in one sitting. I had the slow cooked lamb, which is one of there specialties ... I will be going back to have that dish again before I go because it was out of this world.
Some of the waiters speak English and they will assign an English speaking waiter to your table once they realise you can’t speak Serbian.

Radost Fina Kuhinjica

Reviewed By Nada J

I have been to this restaurant a lot over the past year with different people and everytime we left this place more than satisfied. A couple of my friends were sceptical about the vegetarian label, and they were surprised the most of how the food tastes so good.
I have tried everything on their menu, and really every meal is prepared with love. When you first see the menu, you would think that there isn't a lot of options, but everytime you come you can't decide what you would like to eat more.
The service and food are amazing and I highly recommend this restaurant.

Service used to be much better in the past. Used to go with friends very often and lately ralerly due to poor service. Otherwise , nice experience and interesting food, although would be good to have some innovation from time to time.

Salon 5

SALON We know you're fussy, at least as much as we are. Don't worry, we won't overwhelm you with extravagant recipes just because their names sound good on the menu. You prefer the real thing, and so do we. Our dishes are prepared with delicate attention to detail, carefully nuanced in the hands of masters whose dexterity is measured in split seconds on the grill. But Salon is not just about our immaculate performance in the kitchen. A great restaurant makes you feel great. That's why we value experience above everything, making sure to keep a fine balance at all times. Subtlety without arrogance, simplicity without modesty. Indulgence with a tact, committed to class in every sense of the word - culinary, gastronomical and visual. Because grand taste asks for a grand experience.

We have visited Salon 5 on Christmas Eve in December 2017. From the time the waiter opened us the door we were excited. The personel absolutely friendly and with positive energy. The menu small but every dish was and a different taste journey . Everything was perfect . We recommented it with closed eyes.
Greetings from Greece and happy New Year!!!

Blaznavac cafe-bar

Reviewed By Joost N - Groningen, The Netherlands

Haven't been to Budapest yet? This is the chance to experience it! The place reminded me like the famous ruined bar Szimpla Kert. It has the same quirky stuff hanging around the yard. The staff is really friendly and helpfull. Also the food was good; a big burger for a reasonable price (trust me you will not be hungry!). We sat upstairs; the only 'complaint' was that it was really hot up there. But in total a nice place.
