It’s not very easy to maintain a good reputation and tradition over a long period of time, especially if you are on the competitive battlefield of the capitol’s culinary scene.

Znak pitanja (also known as question mark – ?) is helped by more than one unquestionable fact: the nearness of the Saborna (Cathedral)church, the unique architectural edifice and rustic room with three-foot chairs, small tables and charmingly worn out plates.

When the weather is sunny and warm, we recommend sitting in the gardens – one of them is situated right in front of the tavern, on the sidewalk, and the other, more peaceful and quiet, is in the yard.

Service is, as well as regular visitors, very bohemian, informal and not too fast. The waiter will gladly serve you if you are spontaneous enough, and if you are not… well, it depends.

The menu is very diverse and offers the best traditional and homemade dishes: gibanica (cheese pie), barbecue specialties and exhibitions such as calf’s head in škembe, ajvar and hot chilly peppers, to sweet domestic treats such as various pies and tufahije.

It is good to know that some of the starters are available only before noon, so we decided to skip them and move right to the main courses. If you are too doubtful, be aware that the confused waiter might get your order mixed up, and you just might get served with something he recommended, but you haven’t ordered.

We decided to try chicken mixed meat called mućkalica. This house specialty was nicely served in a pastry bowl, and it justified all our expectations. The pastry blended perfectly, soaking up some of sauce, leaving space for pepper and chicken tastes to develop and conquer.

Dorćol pljeskavica was a bit too greasy, but luscious, well grilled and very well seasoned.

The traditional šopska salad was not as tasty as main courses: unfortunately, the cucumbers, peppers and onions dominated over the tomatoes.

This tavern is charming and well-known; a lot of foreigners and tourist are always present because it represents the very idea of a good, traditional tavern.

Meal for two, without wine: 1,500 dinars.

One of the cult places of the second half of the 20the century underwent a complete makeover at the beginning of this millennium – only the name has stayed the same, everything else has changed.

Nothing has changed here since our last visit: actually, it might be that the restaurant is even emptier than before.

The fanciful interior of Amfora, adorned with numerous marine details, will make you forget that you are actually seated in the basement of 30 Dobračina – it feels more like a hall of a long-voyage ship.

While sitting on the terrace of Restoran Moj ("My restaurant") located on the outskirts of the famous Olimp sports center, we really did feel like the restaurant was ours.
