Absolutely disgusting food. Manager and staff horrible. Novak got kicked out of Australia for lying. Just like novak family.

Staff was extremely rude and behaved very badly with our group. Absolutely no class and food was average. DO NOT RECOMMEND it to anyone. We were visiting from Dubai with a group of mums and kids and when one of us got up from our...seat to serve one of the children, we were told off rudely by the waitress Angela that it was “not allowed” and then she continued on a crazy rant about how we were not at McDonalds. They gave us no plates and no cutlery until we asked many times. Definitely a frustrated lady, with absolutely no class or manners and not someone who’s should be working in hospitality at all!! This put a stain on our otherwise enjoyable trip to Serbia. Food was average. Restaurant very gloomy and run down. Not deserving of the name and would make Novak Djokovic embarrassed to be having people like Angela Mutavdzic and some of the other staff working at his family restaurant.More

If you have 2 hours to wait for your food then this is the place to visit, but otherwise avoid this place! - Manager can’t resolve the issues with the serving time - Food takes ages to be prepared - no one in the restaurant...knows when then food would be ready and served AVOIDMore

Ordered vegan noodles with tofu. Waited for the meal for about 45min. Got vegan noodles with store bought vegan feta cheese. When complained there's no tofu on my plate, the waiter first tried to convince me that the "cheese" is tofu. 5 min later he...told me they ran out of tofu and replaced it with "another cheese" like no big deal. For all the non vegans - these 2 ingredients, tofu and vegan feta are completely different produce and cannot serve as replacement. Anyway the service is arrogant and ignorant, there are literally 2 vegan options on the menu. A true disappointment, this was my first and last time visit.More

We went to visit the facility in Dorcol, Belgrade. The tennis courts are world class, the building and restaurant are absoloutely beautifully build and face the courts so you can follow matches during your meal. The food is healthy and delicious.

Really slow service. Not enough cutlery. A long hair in the food, the waiter just looked stupid. No apology, no solution. Reason to not ask for another dish but just to leave asap

Location near highway and hotel IN, there is public parking. The interior must be much better and cozy. Beef steak is very good, selection of vines and rakija is ok. Staff should be more subtle. We are talking about the Novak, one of the best...ever!More

Whether you are a Novac fan or not, this place is a nice restaurant to visit. Lots and lots of trophies everywhere makes a special ambiance even if you are not interested in tennis. Novac Jokovic is a national hero and that is a good...enough reason for many people to come to this restaurant - but the food is also nice. Good food choices, Serbian and international cuisine. The prices are more or less reasonable, though a bit on the high side.More
