No need to think much if you like Balkan grill specialties. This is a right place for you. They also have wines from all parts of former Yugoslavia.

By the river Drava, few steps from Water tower, there is a cosy restaurant with great tasty Balcan food. Mekana rakija for beginning, then hot fresh lepinje to go well with cevapcici, vesalice, sudzukice and other meat specialities. Not cheap, but tasty.

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.

The place looks nice but not food and service. Cevapcici and pljeskavica where tasteless. And waiter bihaveior not very kind, more passive agressiv. Wie will not visit it again.

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.

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...
