The dining at this restaurant was true quality traditional Macedonian Cuisine, nothing less. I guess Megas A's expectations fell short as he was hoping to be bent over the table Greek Style like he does every other night...

The service here was terrible when I went. The food was disappointing and over priced, the only good thing was the beer was cold. Many things on the menu they did not have. I actually think it is closed now.

This place was a joke. Just like its pretend identity, fake and tasteless. I didnt expect any better, from a lost and insignificant, irrelevant, pretend state. True Macedonian food is Greek, so is everything else Macedonian

I agree with the previous reviewer, hate to say it but being Macedonian myself and expecting traditional home cooked food coming here but sad to say I was really let down. The staff barely understand English and considering the high price we didn't rate it compared to many other top rated restaurants in Seminyak that we had eaten dinner at... More

Considering we were the only customers in the restaurant when we visited Balkanika , the food took about an hour to be served. Unfortunately the two waiters had no customer service, I think only due to a lack of English. The starters were okay but not as authentic as it could have tasted. The mains were quite dry and tasteless.... More

With a Macedonian background I was pleasantly surprised to find this place here on a stroll down the street. The restaurant was nice, service was efficient and food was quite good too. We tried the piperki, shopska salata, zelka, chevapi n pleskavica. All yummy and the traditional music in the background was a nice touch! All in all a satisfying... More

The food was a long time coming out, approx 45 minutes for starters and there was only three tables full. When the food came out, it was lovely. The desserts wasn't specifically what we asked for (crepes and strawberry) but we did get banana and chocolate, which was amazing! Overall not a bad place to eat and chill and the... More

I, along with our friends had never had 'Macedonian' food before. Whether it was great, good or bad Macedonian food we have no idea. But at the end of the day, the meal we enjoyed was 'Bloody Good' all the same. We ordered some dips, and although the bread was a little scarce, they were tasty and a nice way... More

Wow, best food in the whole of Bali. We would like to thank Balkanika for their service. The food was the best we had in the whole of Bali. The best spring rolls, mixed grill and cabonara ever had. The staff was great, the restaurant was clean, the owners were fantastic to deal with, and they made us feel very... More
