I've had the pleasure of dining at Old House several times so far, both on business and private occasions. It's one of the few places in Skopje to get lost in and forget you're actually in the city center. (Plus, I'm a sucker for traditional restaurants so...) Anyway, throughout the years the food quality and level of service have remained... More

Your sense of smell is assaulted by cigarette smoke when you arrive at this restaurant. Our hosts told us that smoking in restaurants is banned in Macedonia but this one has tried to bend the rules by claiming that they are a terrace - hardly likely when it was -10C outside. Apparently this change is recent and took our hosts... More

We asked the waiter for some traditional Macedonian food and he brought us a big plate of different kind of starters and one big plate of different kinds of meat. It was so tasty! We we're all stuffed with food and drinks when we left. I really recommend you to try this place. It's cozy, good food, inexpensive and the... More

Good food quality, low prices, central area and friendly personal. Big disadvantage is that we had to wait a lot in order to have our food served. I also have to mention that I found small part of the external egg in the salad. Overall, it was a good experience, provided that in Skopje, it was difficult to find an... More

Traditional local food in a beautiful place with live macedonian music. Tuli tava, šopska salad and pastrmajlija were delicious!

Food was really good here, service was nice, atmosphere is excellent. We ate a meat plate with salad, which was really-really delicious. The whole restaurant has a nice atmosphere with nice furniture, inside garden and fountain. Free Wifi, card is accepted

Walked in and were immediately impressed by their decor. They've even got a koi-pond! We asked for a table and they hurried away to get one ready. Food was great and pretty cheap. Our main waiter was very serviceminded. Definitely recommend this place for local dishes, and it certainly deserves more bravado than Lonely Planets lukewarm review!
