We had to look around for a while but eventually we found it and oooohhh yess it was good. Very traditional macedonian food in a nice authentic setting. While we were dinning it started raining which gave our Marsalot experience a very special touch. Service was good, the food delicious, a very nice experience overall.

This restaurant has the nostalgic atmosphere of a Tito era apparatchik restaurant. Initially I thought the decor was tongue in cheek but after a few lunchtime visits and having observed the clientele it seems to attract old party hacks. The lunchtime clientele seem to be from another era. Trim, well dressed men and women from another time warp are the... More

We visited based on the reviews from tripadvisor and couldn't be happier. Our server was truly lovely. He went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed our visit to the restaurant. He told us about the history of our table, and even brought out old memorabilia from the restaurant. The food was wonderful, and the prices more than... More

Been there several times and sure enough, "thumb up" for that place. The restaurant is fairly representative for Macedonia and for the Balkan cuisine in general. Can not say the place is special, but reckon someone had a brilliant marketing idea to call the place like that. And to display many photos with political leaders from that period. You can... More

We loved it here we visited twice during our stay in Skopje. The food was all good, hearty, traditional food in great portion sizes. Salads were all very fresh and we tried a few mains which were also all very flavoursome. No it's not fine dining, but the restaurant is very chilled, has a really unique decor inside and out,...

In the Kaj Marshalot you get very delicious food for very fair prices. the ambient is basic and has it's own charme (old pics from former socialist leaders all over the place). the food is really fresh made and very tasty - if you want to try the local cuisine I can absolutely recommend that place.

Being interested in Yugoslava and especially the life and times of Tito, this restaurant caught my eye. Does not go over board like other bars and restaurants with the former Communist Tat from wall to wall, but clearly a bar that likes to reflect on the past and honors the life of Tito, but without going over board. About a... More

When I read the reviews, I expected more. As fans of Jugoslavija and everything connected with it, we wanted to have dinner in this restaurant. The ambient is good, but the food is averge, nothing special really. When we were there, there was a group celebrating something and it was interesting to observe, the atmosphere was great. There was also... More

Do you remeber Marshal Tito? He was the president of Yugoslavia for live. He was the leader of partisan antifascist struggle and social revolution that formed Yugoslavia after the Second World War. He was the one who gave possibility to Macedonians to have their first independent Republic of Macedonia in borders of former Yugoslavia. In his honor someone has opened... More
