We got a tip from our hostel to go to a certain area if we wanted to visit local restaurants. We ended up eating in Skopski Merak because it looked like a very nice place and we were not dissapointed. We tried the house specialty, a pork stew served inside a bread and it was just perfect.

I stayed two times, good food, living music. Staff is helpful. You can enjoy the place and, of course, the meal is good.

Our host in Skopje recommended this restaurant and we surely were not disappointed. The restaurant had a nice terrace and it showed to be very popular. Dinner was really tasty. At first we had local style salad covered with grated cheese and another portion of breaded cheese pieces. My husband had meat stew made inside bred, which he liked very... More

Fantastic food and great atmosphere. The starters are particularly good. Also has live music. Much better than the main square.

We were a group of 10. We enjoyed the appetizers especially the deep fried zucchini and the grilled mushrooms. The kebaps were good. We drank lots of Macedonian wine and had a fun time keeping up with the local folk music. The restaurant has a great garden. Just 1 € from the center and all taxi drivers know the place.... More

A typical traditional restaurant with good value for money. Live music, delicious food, fast and successful service. A 'must to do' in Skopje.

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
