Classic Serbian style restaurant known as a kafana, this one is tucked next to the railway tracks near the main station. The Serbian-ness of this place cannot be underestimated, the grill-centric food, large tables, wedding/dance hall in the back. If youíre here on the right day youíll here some authentic, classic Yugoslav singers playing to a pensioner crowd (who often happily dance). Beyond this decent food and incredible ambiance, you can try the Preminger beer fresh. Worth a visit for that alone, and then to enjoy the site of a real, working peopleís kafana. The style could be considered antiquated but this in many ways is a great Serbian restaurant. I think your opinion will vary depending on what is happening around you when you visit, and your appreciation of this sort of culture. Must see in Belgrade if you canít make it to Dren.

Never has a name so ill rrpresented an establishment than this. The scruffy interior does have phitos of old licomitives that railroad buffs would like. The patio id nice enough, mainly because you canít see the tired olf buildings on either side, but it feels like youírr drinking in a cage, which protects you from the heavy traffic flying by. Bith patio and interior have a vuew into the equally tired and dusty brewhouse. Wirth just a quick peek.

Ironically named, and beer is low grade, but service friendly.

200 meters from the railstation. Worn down place, some locals sitting inside drinking beer. Strange place that has way more industrial lager beer on bottle or draft than their own single pivo. No wonder as I would pick a Jelen any day above this. Place is semi dirty, not a place I would dare to eat. Service was great although the waitor has a bit of difficulties with English.

Owned by the Serbian Railways, this restaurant/brewpub brews one beer - Premijer. A pale lager, itís hardly thrilling but in my opinion better than the general fare, and for 70 dinars for 0.33 (95 for 0.5 I think), possibly the cheapest draft beer Iíve seen in Belgrade (though, admittedly, I havenít seen much and one is probably certain to find better prices somewhere). There are other beers available, mostly bottled I reckon (slightly more numerous than the average in Belgrade, but nothing too interesting). Inside itís all typical slightly socialist-meets-polished-wood fare, from the architecture to the bartenderís outfits. The service was good and relatively fast considering the fact that a huge part of it was filled with people celebrating something. Had no time to try the food, typical Serbian cuisine at first glance. Thereís a bus (probably tram as well) stop directly in front of it, so you can take any bus going south from the train station for one stop if youíre too lazy to walk.
