Excellent food!

The food is excellent. Place is very nice. Staff is friendly. Music in the evening is great too. If you want to enjoy a typical Macedonian place and food, this is the right one

Starting from the yard that is beautifully landscaped, staff will kindly welcome, the atmosphere knowing that you are in a building that is protected as a cultural heritage relaxes you. Food is something that you yourself will have to try to make sure attention about the magic that happens here.

The Stara Kuka is set in a beautiful restored old house, one of the oldest in Skopje. It has ample outdoor seating which is also covered yet allowing breezes to pass through. The food is predominantly grilled items along with salads, cold dishes and hot appetizers. We had a decent shopska salad, and the homemade veal sausages were good with... More

Nice place, good service, many good tastes. Small beer bottles, musicians playing similar tunes over and over. Prices high compared to the city average.

Perhaps the poor response when trying to make a reservation was a sign. The only positive is the setting, but it wasn't anything special. This was the worst service I've ever experienced in a restaurant. Waiters were crowded by the entrance to greet customers, yet no one was paid attention to diners in the restaurant.

Beautiful 180 year old building with oodles of charm. The food was fantastic and the beer cold. Service was good with reasonable English skill. Taking Visa was a plus. Very charming place for a meal either lunch or dinner. The house specialties were great. Prices reasonable.

Great food, brilliant service in an old Skopje mansion. All the dishes are exquisite and they have wonderful choice of wines. Waiters are the best I came across in Skopje with friendly, fast and polite service. A great place to come in an evening to relax, enjoy the atmosphere and have long meal at very affordable prices.

Great food, great ambient, great music.,.a must when in Skopje. Location is a bit hidden, on the left bank of the Vardar. The restaurant is in a 19th century building.
