For some reason we weren't welcome from the start, even though the waiters were really welcoming in all other restaurants that we went to in this city. We were not given a menu to pick our food, I had to ask for it. Also, other people who came in later were given more attention, maybe regular guests, but I do... More

This is restaurant with long tradition in Niš. They are famous for traditional Serbian meat dishes. It is near the city center, so you can walk if you have hotell in that area.

This restaurant is a bit hidden, just south of the Nis Fortress walls, but it is certainly worth finding. The interior, and ambience, we're both outstanding, and all the food was nicely prepared and delicious to eat! Make sure to call ahead for a reservation, especially on weekends, as it can become rather crowded.

Usually, when I am in the town of Nis, I eat in the fantastic place called Kafana Mrak. This time, I wanted to try something different and based on a very good Tripadvisor reviews I went to Nislijska Mehana. Unfortunately, the reason why it is scored high is due to high number of reviews, as this is obviously a very... More

The best restaurant in Nis according to me. The address on the map in tripadvisor is not correct, please have that in mind. Due to the excellent food quality the restaurant is usually crowded, so it is better to have a reservation. Old style waiters, polite and professional, delicious food - the best Uštipci and Gurmanska pljeskavica in Nis. Not... More
