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

I selected this restaurant after reading the reviews on T.A. & I was impressed. A lovable place not far from the centre of Skopje, with open air space and live music. The restaurant offers an endless menu with so many choices that gets you confused. A very intresting wine list and the waiter's recommendation was superb. Excellend service & really... More

We started with a nice mixed salad (fantastic tomatoes) and had the mixed grill and chicken main dishes. Great food, really tasty and cooked to perfection. The grand mother cake and hot and cold deserts are exceptional. The wines are very good too (both white and red) and the service was friendly with a willingness to help find interesting places...

We enjoyed 2 dinners here with a variety of dishes - our favorites: anything from the pizza oven (pizza, garlic bread), shopska salad, grilled white cheese, trimilk cake (amazing) and hot and cold dessert (chocolate soufflé with ice cream). Service was friendly and fast. Make a reservation as it fills up and is a popular local eatery. Live music was... More

Have just eaten at this restaurant.Food was delicious and service was excellent. Tried the cold trio starter which included a sesame paste with a hint of chilli - very nice. Freshly baked garlic bread , from open clay oven was a nice accompaniment. Mains were the chicken steak and the special skewer with perfectly cooked chicken, lamb and pork. Despite... More

We picked the restaurant based on its rank on Tripadvisor and were not disappointed. It's one of the restaurants busy with serving locals and as usual, it's a good sign. A wide range of appetizers and an excellent lamb were the highlights of our visit. Seafood was very good as well. If you add the ambiance (live music) and a... More
