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.

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.

Nice atmosphere. Has the very tasty house special. I was slightly disappointed by my meal being so small. For 450 mkd I was expecting my dinner to be huge.

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.

My colleague and I ate here during a business trip. I was very satisfied with the food and the place had a good atmosphere. For what we had (substantial salads, main course, drinks) the price was very reasonable.

Housed in a traditional wooden building, the service here is very professional. Large menu but the quality across the board is very high. Excellent value for what you get as well. Definitely a place to seek out for dinner one evening if in Skopje. Local live music played in the evening too as an added bonus.
