Macedonian food, but higher quality that most places, served at a reasonable price. Staff speak English if you need them to, great house wine, even had live music. The group, a talented group of older guys, played old rock n roll songs at a quiet volume. A nice change from the usual muzak-type or traditional live groups in Skopje.

Stumbled upon this place on a snowy day in Skopje. Good hearty Macedonian fare, reasonably priced and attentive service.

One of the best restaurants in which I have ever been. Amazing ambient and delicious food, especially great meat dishes !!!! :D Service is very polite and friendly. Prices are also really nice. I would say that if you are in Skopje, you have to go to Skopski Merak !!!!

I found the restaurant from this page and made the reservation on their web page. We've been there last saturday. Everything was really great. Foods, music, wine all were perfect. BOVIN Aleksander Red wine was "number 1". It has lots of rewards as far as we were informed. This was the best wine that I've ever tasted, I don't even... More

We read Trip advisor and went to Skopski Merak and it's beyond our expectations! Everything we had from starters to the dessert was awesome. We ordered sashlik and grilled calamari ,all were perfectly cooked. The waiter was really professional and kind. The selection of local wines definetely recommended. Funny that the wines are cheaper in there than duty free :)... More

I had two dinners and then an early lunch before my flight out. The pot roast is excellent and highly recommended. That's heavy, especially as you will need a salad. If you want... More

We wandered into this restaurant not knowing it was rated #1 on tripadvisor. At first glacé we thought, "this looks fancy". Fancy it was but at a bargain price. We went 3 times each time ordering the burger plus a different item. The burger was incredible! For 250 Macedonian monies it was a steal! It didn't have a bun. Instead... More
