Going further into Zemun quay, you’ll find yourself in a crowded area filled with different kinds of restaurants with both locals and tourists, and sometimes you’ll have to mingle in between vehicles that are trying to find a place to park.
However, a true oasis awaits the persistent ones, at the end of the quay.
No espresso at Radecki, just plain good ‘domestic’/Turkish coffee. You can either rest on the bench and gaze at the river and anchored boats, or go in the restaurant and order fresh-straight-outta-Danube food. Haven’t tried the food, but locals say it’s pretty good and cheap, as everything is here.
It may sound cliché, but this is what one can call a true locals’ spot. By the locals, for locals and everybody else. If you want to try something different on Zemun quay, get away from the crowd and feel/rest like you’re completely out of town, give it a try.
If you’re in the mood for further walking and discovering, you can climb the old stairs which are just near “Radecki” and go straight to Gardoš or “Balkan Express” restaurant. The stairs are really old, steep, but worth climbing as they lead to the top of the 50-meter hill, with a beautiful belvedere.
