Second iconic place for dinner beside "Skadarlija" street. Unique atmosphere, remarkably charm part of the city. Once a year they have "Istars kitchen days" so if you are at that time in Belgrade you are the lucky one. We ate the fish rolled in sauce. I'm not exaggerating the best fish I've ever eaten in addition to those on the... More

This fish restaurant is located in Zemun next to Danube river and it is close to many other restaurants in this area. We stopped there only for drinks. Next time will try the food. The staff was not very polite.

Saran is one of my favorite restaurants in Belgrade. If you like fish, there is no better place to go in Belgrade. The restaurant is one of the oldest here, it has a long tradition. The food is perfect, everything is so tasty... I recommend everyone who come to Belgrade to visit this restaurant!

Lovely restaurant with great dishes (it is well known for wide range of fish specialities, but they also serve other meals) great for family time or business meetings. It is quite traditional restaurant, with live old urban traditional Serbian music (we call it ''Starogradska muzika''). My favourite meal here is salmon accompanied by grilled polenta.

Restaurant "Saran" is one of the best fish restaurants in Belgrade. Very nice interior, warm colors, wood and decoration. Very good choice of fresh fish, wine choice should be better. Some of best Serbian wines are missing. Service is slow and could be much more friendly. The lady who is receiving reservations is not helpful, nor friendly.

I visited in December so I can only speak for the inside area of the restaurant that was beautifully decorated and inviting. The lady at the reception was very accommodating and all the staff very helpful. We had the fish soup served in a big pot, one of the most tasty I've had so far. All the fish dishes we... More

Great place, the enterior was beautifully decorated for the New Year. Food is beyond description. We had fish soup (both red one and vegetable one), steak and šaran grilled - fantastic! The prices are higher than usual but it is worth it! The waiters are very experienced and attentive. There is free wifi too.
