Banatski Brestovac (Serbian Cyrillic: Банатски Брестовац) is a village located in the Municipality of Pančevo, in the South Banat District of Serbia. It is situated in the Autonomous Province of Vojvodina. The village has a Serbian ethnic majority and its population numbers 3,517 people (2002 census).
The name of the village refers to the stands of elm trees that surrounded the village. The name of the village is of Serbian origin, and a legend about origin of the name claims that the village was first settled by Serbian settlers from the village of Brestovik located on the southern bank of the Danube.
In 1717 Banatski Brestovac was mentioned for first time in a Latin document under the name Praestowatz. At that time, the population of the village numbered twelve families. In 1763, 130 German families settled here and 104 Serbian families also lived in village at that time. The Serbs had an Orthodox Church and mill. In 1766 a Catholic church was built (it was demolished by the communists in 1945).
