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

It is the only restaurant we ate in Skopje so it's not possible to compare it, but the place is beautiful and it makes for a good and relaxed atmosphere, with live music (don't know whether it's always so). Good service, appropriately attentive. Good choice of dishes. The home starters were delicious and the casseroles really nice. The pancakes we... More

I went to their website and made a reservation online a week in advance of my trip. At 7pm on the day we were in Skopje, we showed up at Stara Kuka, only to be told that no one checks the web reservations and they could not accommodate us. This was disappointing indeed, as the website reservation system is clearly... More

Great and very tasty food. Big choice of meals, prepared and served in a modern way even if you eat the more traditional (macedonian) meals. Staff is really nice, polite and efficient.Great atmosphere, and nice garden to seat in the hot summer days/nights.
