Tripe soup was superb but the salad and veal cheeks were mediocre. So it's a hit or miss. Not acceptable for the high prices. Also they don't have large beers on tap which is negative for me as well.

We do not serve veal cheeks at Chef's (13 Ljubata str.). Wrong address! You made us laugh with the large beers. This is not October fest.

Went there with our kids recommended by a local friend. Enjoyed the food (remarkable spinach&hummus salad and egg&truffle mixture), very attentive service, and they served very quick. Absolutely recommendable!
