I visited on a day trip to Sveti Naum Monastery and the setting on the springs was magnificent. I guess you would call them floating barges, Bob up and down as you relax and enjoy a great meal. Waiter made recommendation and the meal was delicious.

I've been with my friends now second year in row and I'm always thrilled by the beauty of place and very good food, It's not the cheapest you can find, but worth of spending for the scenario!
