Restaurant VELIKI


Authentic Vojvodina cuisine

It is all about a wordplay with 2 answers.

In Serbian, ‘veliki’ means both large and great. In our case, ‘veliki’ means great, as in Alexander the Great. Similar to Russian where ‘veliki’ means great and bolshoi stands for large, as in Peter the Great and Bolshoi Theater.

Our slogan is “Big Heart Equals Great Service”

We will endeavor to be both great and exceptional!


How did we come up with all of this…

Novi Sad is a multi-cultural metropolis, and our restaurant is a gathering place for urban people. This concept is explained by both cultural and historical facts.

It is commonly considered that Vojvodinian, i.e.”Lala”, is a chubby man with mustaches dressed in traditional folk costume( white baggy shirt and trousers, with black waistcoat and hat), and Vojvodina’s households are farms with chequered tablecloths. Urban Vojvodina and its city lifestyle are somehow forgotten.

We wish to rekindle this memory. Our food entwines the cuisines of Germany  (Austria), Hungary, Slovakia and naturally Serbia, as well as the gastronomy of other ethnic communities that have been living in this region for centuries.

Historical facts

Our 19th century building is protected by the institute for Conservation of Cultural Heritage of Novi Sad and has the status of historic and cultural landmark. Although it was reconstructed in 1998. with appealing and modern interior, it preserved its original external features.

Located in the old downtown, this historic structure has its own landmark – an old corner stone, integrated in 1801. According to the Institute for Cultural Heritage Conservation of Novi Sad, this is the oldest corner stone in Novi Sad.


Recycling concept design represents reuse of elements of old buildings by emphasizing their appeal through a process of embellishment, preservation and reusability. All elements of original building construction from 1801. were utilized in the interior design.

The ceiling is not boarded but made of beams used as floor joists. They were brought from Bavaria in 19th century.
The beams were leveled to give the ceiling a flat surface. Additional steel beam and a few concrete girders were used to connect and reinforce the building construction.

Also called Fingernudeln (finger noodles), is the name of a type of dumpling or thick noodle in southern German and Austrian cuisine, similar to the more internationally familiar Italian gnocchi. Schupfnudels are traditionally given their distinctive shape similar to an elongated rugby ball.

In our restaurant they are served as a savory dish with cheese and breadcrumbs and as a sweet dish with breadcrumbs and sugar or poppy seeds and sugar.


Recipes similar to that of the Sachertorte officially  appeared in 1832, when Prince Wenzel von Metternich ordered his personal chef to create a special dessert for several important guests.

The head chef was ill and let the task fall to his sixteen-year-old apprentice, Franz Sacher…
