In May 2015, I hosted a 5-course traditional Macedonian dinner for 30 private guests at the Lira. The menu and seating arrangement was briefly pre-discussed with the restaurant manager and the cook the day before, and they knew that the purpose of the event was my first reunion with my cousins and their families after 40 years. Hence, I wished... More

I visited this restaurant in a party of six people. It looks charming immediately as you enter. It is a recreation of an old style Macedonian building. There is a large indoor area, which can easily cater to several large parties at once. There is also a large outdoor area, with tables of various sizes dotted through paved garden areas.... More

Really nice restaurant with excellent atmosphere, and finally with not loud music (very rare here). I tasted the liver, was not bad but not perfect. The ribs were delicious, beer was cold. Prices are ok (visit their homepage, menu can be learnt). Waiter was kind and helpful, service was fast. The best was its atmosphere, it is worth a visit.

We chose this place after reading reviews on trip advisor and were not disappointed. As a vegetarian and vegan pair we found sufficient on the menu to satisfy us (and were able to know that before we went because the menu is available in English online). The restaurant had a lovely feel to it and the live music was pleasant... More

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
