This is by far one of the most pleasant, authentic, quality Skopje taverns/osterias/meyhanes. Situated in the pleasant bohemian neighborhood of Debar Maalo, this restaurant offers some of the most delicious food in town. There is also a wide selection of fresh wood-oven baked specialties. Very decent prices. Service is outstanding and the atmosphere is always fun. At night there is... More

We ate lunch at Skopski Merak: my partner ordered the trout which was good, but I ordered baked beans from the traditional menu which was inedible. No flavour, dry and I couldn't eat even half of it. The service was good, our waiter de-boned the trout with panache… But we still got charged for my meal, even though I had... More

Go there for a dinner (after 21.00) and enjoy drink, food and music. Make a reservation. Taste their dishes from the oven rather than bbq. Order as much as you can eat of those little side dishes with local specialties and salads as well as home made bread.

I was surprised to find out that it is the best restaurant in Skopje. Food is more or less the same as in other places, the staff seems to be a little lost because we did not get everything we ordered. We also got very cold red wine, straight from a fridge. Maybe they had worse day than usual.

The place is great, food is really delicious and the waiters are professionals. You should try the traditional dishes and beer.
