Great location for a meal

An open-air restaurant alongside the springs at Saint Naum. Good food and drink, and a great atmosphere. There is often live music. Sections of the restaurant can be floated away for a trip up the river while you eat. Recommended.

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.

We visited the restaurant on our one day trip from Ohrid. The landscape was very close to what we use to see in Asia-cages with ducks,surrounding river, greenery. The service was nice and the food above the expectation. Even though the restaurant was full of turists the service was quick. We also appreciated the life music. We ate fresh fish-... More

Compared to the nice smaller restaurants in e.g. Ohrid where we stayed this came on as a very touristy and dull place - somewhat like a german highway restaurant. This is the impression even though we got what I would say was the best table right on the small stream that goes around the restaurant. The food was okay but... More

Great nature, small island in the best nature in Ohrid area - springs of river Drim. The restaurant has a great landscaped yard with new wooden rafts and small boats that you could see the springs and enjoy the pristine beauty and pure water, something you must see. There are good salads, great fish, homemade prepared with garlic makalo which... More

My partner and I spent three nights in Ohrid and after hiking in the National Park close by decided to go to the St. Naum Monastery. We have both been to several monasteries all over Europe, but we were especially impressed with this one due to it's setting and the wildlife. After visiting the monastery we ate at Ostrovo and...

The waiter advised that the currency was excepted and the exchange rate was 400 Albanian Lek for 1000 Macedonian Dinar. We ordered food for five... More

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! Waiters are likable, fast and well informed about the food (I do appreciate it a lot), so you feel free to ask for... More
