Really nice food, staff and atmosphere

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

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.

Go late, not earlier than 21.00 (book!) and enjoy great food, outstanding service, wine and great live music. We were there for St. Valentines, so it was really full (a lot of people turned down without reservation) and I do not know if it is the case normally. We enjoyed every minute in the restaurant and I was happy to... More

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.

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 !!!!
