Amazing location, good food, but bad service

What to say about the location? Sometimes it really looks like paradise. There are several private rafts u can reserve (make sure u do it at least 2 hours before) and one of them can even sail with private oarsmen (but it costs 200€ more). Food is ok, but nothing special.

...eating and drinking. But especially drinking in the nature and the beauty of the springs, the clarity and purity of the water and the green of the trees. This place is magic. The food is not as good and can't match the location. I hope it improves. But I was so impressed with the nature that this time the food... More

Went there for the fish as we heard it was the best. To be honest I have had better in Ohrid and cheaper. Over fried and over salted. Three stars though for location and ambience.

This restaurant is quite an experience. Surrounded by a stream that feeds Lake Ohrid and a nice menu that is reasonably priced. We splurged and had some Ohrid trout, the local fish from the lake. It was a nice experience.

Loved the view, river island, nice ambiance, traditional Macedonian live music. Service is mediocre, if you are larger group, service obviously much better! Little overpriced for the quantity and quality of the food served.

We had our first trout lunch. Good food, nice place. Great to do the tour in the small boat afterwards and walk around the area.

What a pity: we had a feeling that I have finally found the real paradise on Earth (St. Nahum Monastery and those beautiful springs), but very soon we were so disappointed sitting in this restaurant. Everything we tried (5 of us) was poor, with no taste in what so ever. And this was the most expensive meal in the entire... More
