Great place to watch a game and chill. Food is authentic and delicious. If you have never been to the balkans this is a good place to try

Hookah is great and smooth. Food is overpriced.Absolutely no COVID health practices in place here. Clearly, the owner didn’t get the memo about a pandemic.You can’t control patrons but at least implement basic health practices with your staff. Everyone wore masks under their nose, including the bartender. The general manager was going from table to table, mingling with customers with no face covering at all. The busboy just went from table to table « wiping » them down with the same rag and then laid the plates upside down. I’m trying to encourage businesses during these hard times, but c’mon... this is unacceptable behavior. I’m visiting from Texas, of all places with lax restrictions, and felt like I was on another planet.I would stay away until the owner has some sort of realization that we all have a part to play in keeping people safe. He failed.

The food is absolutely delicious!! We actually visited twice. The first we had steak and eggs, Cevapi and the french toast. The second visit we had the Cevapi and pancakes. Most definitely a place to visit for great food. The bartender Tamara is so bubbly and pleasant. Her Mimosas and Mojito are the bomb.

Filip is the best server that we have had here in Miami. He is so full of personality. We sat down really fast and he arrived right as we sat down. He asked for our drink order and we were excited to see the free cocktail offer. My sister and husband both used it to get a free drink which was super awesome. You just have to show them the coupon and they will get it for you.

Two of us ordered burek and he was nice enough to tell us that it does take some time for it to be made. All burek is home made and takes 30 minutes to be made fresh. My sister ordered cevapi and a side salad. All of our food came in a timely matter. Filip checked on us periodically as we waited. The food tasted amazing, and was really fresh. You can tell that the burek is really fresh. It was nice and hot and delicious.

Mediterranean food here - excellent. Service is always super even when they have a full house. Looking forward to a return visit. The prices are fair for the quality of food. I see why this place has a lot of positive reviews.

Fantastic experience! This restaurant has incredibly delicious authentic Eastern European food. The Ćevapi are first class. The selection of Serbian and general balkan brandy is top notch.
Great atmosphere on weekends and very safe considering the pandemic. We are making this our new hang out.

Great hookah, service was a bit lacking. The food was ok, but I think the service really could use a bit more attention to detail, attention to customers. The gentleman making hookah was extremely nice (Mr 305!) and all 3 stars go to him ???. There was lots of outdoor space, and good warmth from lots of outdoor heaters. Definitely a place to hang on a rainy day (we arrived during a downpour) . Worth a visit surely!

I would like to give this place 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ for two reasons1. The ambience and presented cultural environment is on point2. The server I believe Lana was very kind and pleasant .Thank you , trullyFor someone who was raised for around 20 ish years on this food I know I'll be biased , but the food needs to be elevated you guys have to step up the game . Ajde bre Balkanci ! You represent alot. It was descent not the best .They have good options for all the carnivore out here but can't say much about the others .They do have good choices of liquor unique for the countries of the Balkan ! I highly recommend that.And lastly , if you want to experience how would it look like a night out on the Riviera of Montenegro , Budva , Kotor , Suto more . This is the whole experience . You'll get seated with slight attitude . You'll barely hear anything because of the loud and proud Serbian music and you'll constantly hear some sort of male ego Balkan competition !I give this place well deserve 5 stars for the incredible unique and well presented whole Balkan experience ?Bravo

I've been to this place a few times already and everything is perfect every single time. Their drinks are delicious and food is so fresh and tasty. My husband is from Serbia and he says that this place has very authentic food. I love the ustipci! Great ambiance and music add to the experience. Recommend!

Place is filthy.. bathrooms are gross. Service is terrible. Hookah is ghetto, limited flavors, and they don't change the coals

Ambience is nice though

Very good bar. They have an outdoor patio. They have a wide variety of drinks in the menu. They have happy hour from 12-7 PM. It's just a couple of minutes walk from south beach. Very good ambience. Good service. Decent pricing. Don't forget to try the authentic Rakija drink, It's a Serbian brandy.

Would definitely recommend this place for people who enjoy outdoor patio and alcohol. Also, they serve hookah!!

P.S: Bartender Lana is awesome. Look out for her. She'll take good care of you!
