We came here because we were staying very close. We were made to feel very welcome and had some delicious food and beer! Highly recommended if I'm the area!

While the food itself is definetly not a problem, the unfrieny and rude staff most certainly is. The food is traditional serbian cuisine, with a lot of meat, which is great. I would recommend prebranac because it is delicious. My one big problem was with the rude staff, who insulted us. We won't be coming back thanks to the rude... More

Well even former good Balkan grill succumbed to cheap savings tricks. A prebooked dinner for 8...we had to visit in advance to choose one of 2 menus :(. First one offering no pork (Balkan?) offered veal medallions with porcini (Balkan??) Second - wannabe classic BBQ was loaded with baked potatoes (Balkan???). Not to mention that 1/4 (0,25%) of portion of... More

Well even "typical" Balkan grill succumbed to the completely wrong saving mood. At least in December. We've had to choose the menu (2 available) in advance. One without pork meat (Balkan ??) offering veal medallions with porcini (Balkan=?). The "regular" was decent but the big plate was packed with baked potatoes (Balkan??). Even the brass band (trubači) playing at the... More

The place is quite old. As well as the decor. I go there sometimes for a quick lunch because they do have a nice selection of Serbian food and the prices are really ok. But they always have some sort of surprise for me. Whether it is the wrong order and they expect me to eat it, because well, the... More

The Balkan grill restaurant continues the tradition of old Slovenian gostilna from 1886. The rooms could use some redecoration; there is a pleasant outdoor dining space for summer. The food is good old-fashioned grill: čevapčići, with or without cheese, baked beans "prebranac", grilled chicken and roasted peppers are the favorites of the crowd. You might want to call in advance... More

Kind staff, acceptable price, food is alright, but it used to be better. The place itself needs some readjustment.

Charming place to eat with a great eastern European atmosphere. Though communication with the waiter was a little difficult - I asked if he could speak English and he responded that he could speak German. I continued speaking to him in German, not sure if he understood. He ended up bringing me two main meals! Both tasted good and were... More
