Took some finding but it was well worth the effort. We arrived with the musicians about 9:30 pm and had the house pot roast, some baked chicken and mixed salad. All fabulous and the service is excellent. The band adds a really cool atmosphere to this very authentic restaurant that really deserves it's No 1 ranking. One of the most... More

It was in close proximity to our hostel, so we tried it, since it was the top recommended here on Tripadvisor. It surely lived up to it's reviews. The place was really lively, with live music and people singing along to some songs. The waiters were extremely friendly, and you felt like family. We tried to speciality of the house,... More

Excellent Macedonian food, great service, the best wine and the great atmosphere. All you need for a great dinner with your friends. This was our first visit in Skopje, and we will never forget it.

This restaurant was recommended by Hotel City Park (the hotel does not have it's own restaurant) and guests get 10% discount. I was looking for good, wholesome, traditional Macedonian food and that is exactly what I got! Excellent service, great wine and a very reasonable bill at the end. As it was my first night in Skopje I can not... More

This restaurant is very convenient for City Park Hotel customers due to its closeness (200 meters?). You can sit inside or outside. The food is very good. We had grilled squid,stuffed squid (they are small, baby size)Turli tava,beefsteak with mushroom sauce and Zlaten draft beer. All very good. Make sure to try grandma's cake! Service is outstanding. Our waiter's name... More

Probably the best overall score from my trip to Skopje in restaurants department. Had to take taxi there and it seemed like we are going somewhere far but it's not that far from the center. Main dish and desert was really good.Waiters very attentive. I'll probably visit next time I'm there to see if the service is on the same... More

I am living in Skopje for a year and this place caught my eye as it is currently ranked number one and is relatively close to my apartment, so I popped in expecting something brilliant. If I am honest I was a little disappointed, its number one status reflects the overall choice of places in Skopje rather than the brilliance... More

Solid Macedonian cuisine in a pleasant setting. We had a large village salad and pork stew with bred and a bottle of Vranac red wine. Should have passed on the dessert, as it wasn't that great. The wine list is excellent. It can be a bit tricky to find if you don't read Cyrillic. There is a band that plays... More
