This restaurant has excellent food with a nice environment. The cheese and salads were out of this world. My main course were the pork ribs. What a delight. The Lava Cake with ice cream was excellent. The only drawback was the service was slow. This is the only reason I didn't give them an excellent rating.

This restaurant is just excellent! Located just off the river and near the heart of downtown, the food is fantastic. They offer an excellent variety of Macedonian food and I did not have a bad dish the multiple times I dined there while on business in Skopje. The pastrmajlija is excellent, the shopska salad is divine, and the selsko meso... More

Nice garden and very pleasant staff. The food is delicious. I like very much decorations on the wall. What I didn't like is just the music. It was little bit loud. Parking place also not enough.

I asked my friend to introduce me to the best food in Skopje, he took me to the Old House. Not only is the food marvelous, but the service is impeccable. I took my friends here the next day, and the same thing again...great service and great food. The ambience is very nice as well, relaxed environment and warm.

This place was recommended to my group by some colleagues and it was worth a try, definitely. Very nice food, excellent choice if you want to try some traditional stuff. The prices were ok, I'd say average for this type of restaurant. The location was also great, right in the city centre.

It was kind of social dinner after all-day workshop at Holiday Inn which was a venue nearby. The atmosphere was really nice with the Balkan spirit in the interior and the music played live. We liked the wines, the salads and deserts but the main dish - grilled pork ribs - left much to be desired as was served cold... More

The staff was horrendous, slow and very unprofessional. Reservation was not effective when I got there. The order took ages to be delivered to my table. The waiter was talking to me in a very uncomfortable way. But when the food got to my table, most of my impressions changed; Very nice spot in Skopje with quality food. It is... More
