Around The World in 80 Dinners – The Original Balkan

Home  /  Food and Wine  /  Dinner Club  /  Current Page



The Original Balkan Restaurant grill in Darlinghurst was first fired up in 1964 and has been operated by the same Croatian family ever since. Whenever I go there I get the same feeling that I get from eating at the Restaurants in Helsinki. Friendly and modest staff, impeccable cleanliness.

The Balkan has always been known and loved for it’s warm and friendly atmosphere, excellent European style cuisine and generous portions.

The “Balkan Grill” is where the most tender meats and choice seafood is barbecued and then served with fresh traditional Croatian style cabbage and potato salads.
