I was always a big fan for Lira and I knew the owner very good. Since she died the restaurant lost not only her big smile and soul but rating. I was there for a friend reunion with around 5 persons plus children. The suddenly stopped the normal music and some very loud and bad quality Arabian music game out... More

The restaurant has a really nice ambiance, esp. by candlelight. I dined alone, and the shopska salad was excellent--huge, really, and beautifully fresh tomatoes and cucumbers. A pepper, grilled and stuffed with goats cheese, was also done very nicely. I had their specialty entree, pork "a la lira", which was a stew of pork, green peppers, and onions, and although... More

Outstanding Macedonian restaurant for a difficult customer like me. I cannot eat any food which contains or is contaminated with gluten and/or rice. I explained my predicament when I entered the restaurant, and asked whether they could accommodate me. The answer was a straightforward “yes”. And indeed they did. Immediately I realised that I was in good hands, because the... More

Very nice restaurant with excellent hot and cold apetizers and a variety of main courses, mainly macedonian cuisine. Staff experienced and professional. Plus unplugged live music to make your stay even more pleasant. I go to Lira every time I go to Skopje. Would recommend reserving a table, especially in summer time.

I've been there two times and yesterday's was the most recent one. Unfortunately no live music with traditional songs was played and that make quite a difference as food here is good, but not extraordinary. I had a dish with some vegetables and cheese as starter and continued with lamb which was barely on the average (too dry). Prices are... More

Despite the second visit, I enjoyed the plate of au d'oeuvre with cheeses, paste, fried zucchini with a basket of warm bread. Green peppers are also highly recommended. The main dish of the day was the typical Macedonian (meat in some creamy sauce). A music band comes around and plays all songs from all former Yugoslavian regions (if you know... More
