Some of us travel just for the food - and if you’re Belgrade bound, you’re in for a real treat. Here you can discover some of Eastern Europe’s most beloved restaurants serving both international food and Serbian specialities like ćevapi and torta praska - the famous apricot cake which will take your breath away. Dare to try at least one shot of Serbian raki too! Take a look at our favourite restaurants in Serbia’s fun-loving capital.

1. Salon 5


This absolute gem of a restaurant embodies everything that fine dining is about. Located in an actual apartment, Salon 5 allows guests to indulge in Italian and French delicacies such as risotto, tiramisu and foie gras - their simply incredible signature dish. Highly recommended to anyone looking for an unusual and a bit quirky dining experience in the centre.

Taste the best of Balkan’s cuisine at Ambar, a lively restaurant which is getting more and more popular. The service is second to none; the staff will always take the time to explain the menu to you.

This baroque inspired restaurant offers opera and cello concerts during their lunch and dinner seatings.

9. Zavicaj


Sit down by one of the pretty checkered tables at Zavicaj and you’ll feel right at home. It’s a traditional restaurant with a touch of countryside close to the centre of the city. It does get a bit crowded as it’s so popular, but it’s still worth a visit for those who appreciate a nice goulash or a pork shish kebab, and who doesn’t? Finish your meal with a hot cup of coffee before you take on Belgrade’s famous nightlife.
