We ordered a GALA grill mix for two. It was a huge portion, some meat we liked some we did not. The waiter was average, not too kind, but neither rude.

We found this restaurant while we was walking long the river. The place is nice and the menu is also in English and German. It's easy to order something. The food is good, we tried meat and was excellent. Good experience.

My boyfriend and I wanted to have a real Slovenian food, and at the embankment of Drava we found this restaurant. Excellent food, nice service, good prices. The service was fast, the waiter was nice.

The food was certainly interesting. Enjoyed some dishes, not others. I liked the salads and bread. Home made Serbian food. Menu very meaty. Nice location by the river. Good wine.

If you are looking for Balkan food (cevapcici, sadzukice, sopska solata, etc) this is the place to be. They also serve the greatest onion (yes, onion). They are serving great food for years, so you won't fail if you go and eat here...

The Gala Zar is a very good choice if you are carving for some hefty meat dishes. The restaurant itself is furnished very simple, yet the "Tito-room" is worth a look decorated with a lot of memorabilia of the former Yugoslavian leader.
