Very nice restaurant, located near the river, complete with railroad car converted into a dining area. Food (grilled meats, cevapi) all good, our group was happy with the choice. About a 5 minute walk from the bus stop.

The location is as good as it gets, superb views across the river back to Belgrade. Fortunately the food and service quality matches the location. Excellent steak and sides, and great pizzas for the kids. Good experience all round.
