We had a very pleasant experience. Service was very prompt and the food was traditional Macedonian and very good. The waiters were friendly and accommodated our dietary restrictions with the chef. Thanks...

If you want to taste the local food, cooked as the Macedonian tradition request, you have to try it. Easily you can find musician or poets in action during the dinner.

This is one of my favorite places to visit when I travel to Skopje. When the weather is nice it is wonderful to sit outside. They often have live music that gives the place a very traditional feel. I typically leave the choices to the waiter to provide a nice mix of typical Macedonian appetizers and a mixture, of Veal,... More

We where here twice in our stay in Skopje. Very good food, very good service and very nice traditional Music from the houseband. If you want to have a nice evening in Makedonian style, go to this superb restaurant 😬👍

The food was very good but unfortunately the service was terrible..they forced us to seat in a table we didn't like even if a lot of other tables were free. But the worse thing was that they didn't being us what we chose from the menu (in English) but the double quantity without saying nothing and charging consequently the double... More

We had a late lunch here and really enjoyed the food and service. Our waitress spoke very good English. We had some local fare that I couldn't pronounce. The only down side is they still allow smoking inside the restaurant. Would go back again.

We only found about this place, due to our hotel receptionist giving us a handy tip on a great restaurant serving traditional Macedonian food which was only 5 mins walk from our hotel (super 8). Was a great honour to have eaten in the oldest traditional house that is still in use. So much more than just food in a... More

We ate here two nights while in Macedonia, the first night we all ordered separately. I had the chicken and prosciutto with cream sauce... Amazing!! The second night we ordered traditional family style... Amazing!!! You can't go wrong here this paired with local wine and the prices... This is a must try if you ever come to Skopje.

Beautiful house (with a good story) and it makes for a wonderful atmosphere, very relaxed yet elegant. Good service, appropriately attentive. Food contains some excellent dishes. The dried plums in prosciutto (kebabs) were the best. The tavche gravche was fine but no different or better than what you can get at any number of taverna-style lunch restaurants in town. There...
