As I don't live in Belgrade anymore, last time I visited "Stara Hercegovina" was two years ago. And I miss it a lot!!! That much that I have asked my friends to bring me, somehow, some of the dishes here where I am now. Here you can try original Serbian dish,made as it was made in your own kitchen by... More

If there is any such thing... Seriously, food is quite good here by Balkan standards, with hearty meals, something that one might experience in a local taverna in Greece, and maybe it could be construed as a distant cousin of Southern Soul food. It's not very refined, but that's the point. Expect massive amounts of salt, fat, and other unhealthy... More

I went here with a native Serbian speaker. The menu is very traditional. We order 1.5Kg of Pork Ribs for three of us. This was a struggle to get through. The meat was tender and not greasy and covered in sauce. The Bean dish was exceptional. As a self confessed meat lover the thought of beans was not appealing. I... More

Nice cosy, old serbian "kafana" with lots of national dishes. Their food is superb and worth a visit when nearby. Would recommend for everyone who likes serbian cuisine.

This is a casual, family style restaurant serving authentic Serbian specialties. Brightly lit, wish smoking wasn't an issue in Serbian restaurants but sadly it is, if you can get past the smoke the food is more than worth holding your breath for an hour! We thoroughly enjoyed the cabbage and pork, ribs with potatoes, and an assortment of first course... More

Average restaurant with not that cheap prices comparing to western europe. A waiter told me what there is nowhere so cheap to eat as there. It is incredible but I found quite a number of restos in Europe where you can eat at the same price or even much cheaper! Really incredible!
