Balkan food is the best food

This place might not look extremely fancy nor overly authentic, but God I had an absolute feast! I strongly recommend selsko meso (if you eat pork), tavche gravche (beans baked in a bit spicy sauce), shopska salata a.k.a. a Bulgarian salad, much similar to Greek salad. The food was fresh, served... read more

A great place to have a 'local' experience. Food is delicious and some is home made so it is really a local experience. The home wine was a hit. The food was excellent and my friends (from Germany) loved it!

Food taste standardly good as for most places in Macedonia, but the size of the dishes do not correspond to the price you have to pay for it. At the end of the lunch I felt like I have to complain, but when I've spoken to the waiter he just raised his shoulders and said "its owner's decision...". Felt I... More

The setting, the traditional ambiance, the homemde food, the local wine, the whole beautifull story in one place to entertain guests who are not familiar with our food tradition on a higher level . Interesting alternative to other highend restaurants and a must if you are in love with our cousine

Traditional Macedonian food in a traditional Macedonian house with traditional Macedonian music. A little bit more expensive than other restaurants but well worth it

Atmosphere and food were great, and contrary to what other reviewers have said, our service was fine. Some very nice traditional dishes on the menu. I can see that this place could attract a touristy crowd, but was very good the evening that we were there.

Fine setting, very clean; good canned local music background; fairly varied menu with medium-to-high prices (normal for the setting) but clueless staff: my waiter was ready to push anything expensive; no help in choosing wine (which can be bought by the glass, a plus); baked lamb was tasty but too salty and chips cool; bread excellent and Bulgarian salad large...
