The large garden with its socialist image is separated from the busy street by a fence and is nicely in the shade of large trees.

The excellent quince brandy will help you decide what to order: get ready to try the hot peppers in oil with garlic, parsley and a bit of cream (the peppers weren’t really hot and the cream was somewhat aged). Our impression was enhanced by the warm flatbread served with this entrée.

Even though “Orač” is known for its cooked dishes, we decided to try the grill – a burger with lots of onions, excellently prepared, spicy and greased with bacon, and the lamb roast with potatoes which gets an average mark. This is served with a standard and not too large Serbian salad.

Desserts are also standard for a tavern, so we left their degustation for some other occasion.

Everything could be much better here, but it could also be worse, and “Orač” is among the least expensive restaurants in the city.

Meal for two: 1,500 dinars.

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.
