Either outside on street or inside the service is attentive and friendly good basic wine selection . try the home made bread and butter. last and best is the steak, lamb or seafood preparation which is always served to perfection. Always a good experience.

The services was exceptional and the food was good. We... More

Nothing like a good chevap and this place delivers an authentic taste without a doubt but I have entertained customers here before with more of a personal touch to the service levels that we experienced. In the past to add to the experience we were given small tasters to promote the restaurant and even ordered some of these dishes as... More

Great flavours and plenty of food on the plate. Pretty simple food but again great flavour. Price wise it's rather expensive. Overall we had an enjoyable experience.

Really good food. I took the mix-grill after a garlic bread, and honestly it was too much. Don't be afraid about prices: yes there are high... but quantity and quality are adapted. I ate outside... a little too messy for me... between road, cars, customers, and people walking on Lygon street

High prices - over the top Steak cooked medium to well done when ordered rare - yet they claim to serve the best steaks in Australia!! Poor wine choices This is the worst experience I have had in 40 years of dining, including many meals in Lygon St. (where the standard is very mixed and the prices generally extortionate) It...

Brought here by friends on my first visit to Australia for a good steak, and was not disappointed. Yes, the prices are on the higher end but if you want it done right you should come here. The staff is very welcoming and caring. Thank you.

This place knows how to grill meat. If you are looking for a steak or some kind of Balkan meat speciality, you probably won't be disappointed. But... Prices are at the higher end of competitive Sides and sauces are downright expensive Waitress handling bill was clueless The "home made bread" is not something any self respecting ex-Yugoslavian would touch.

I was invited at my arrival in Melbourne to this restaurant which serves Serbian "delicacies". We have had very nice different dips with very nice bread and the famous cevapi! Delicious!

Neighbourhood Profile
Lygon Street
If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who started their day with a local espresso. They are gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this Little Italy which has something for everyone. Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way they do it "back home" and maybe even a bit of amore. The number of gelato choices will leave you in a state of indecision and wide footpaths, big awnings and a sea of packed tables makes this al fresco dining experience a continental buzz. Even if you’re not eating, it’s worth the stroll just for the people-watching, which, of course, is an Italian tradition.
