The food was awful! The music so loud you couldn’t talk. The service was extremely slow l. Awful experience.

Had an outstanding early birthday celebration at Kafana last night. My friends, most of whom had never tried Balkan food before, loved the food. It was Orthodox Christmas Eve so there were many delicious seafood specials—the grilled branzino was fantastic. The wine list is always impeccable. Hvala!

Kafana is THE only authentic full service Serbian restaurant in NYC. The food, staff, atmosphere, drinks are all fully authentic Serbian. I was born in Belgrade and most of my family still lives in Serbia, so the recommendation is about as real as it gets. It takes me back home, every time I visit Kafana. Always well worth it.

My wife is Serbian and we went for her birthday. She loved it and found that the cuisine is exactly like it is in the homeland. We brought our kids and they loved it too. Great find. We will be back for more!

The Kafana food is so authentic. The meals have taste of my childhood. Well made food with good quality ingredients.

Not to be missed. If I lived in NYC I would be there several times a week. Food (Serbian) is wonderful. The wine list exceptional and fairly priced. The service impeccable and more importantly: helpful and friendly. Go and make up your own mind.
