We chose to eat at this restaurant as it seemed busy and is located very close to the water at the port. Service was slow, we had to ask twice for menus. We ordered orange juice, and that came out at room temperature with no ice provided. The food took 30 minutes to arrive (which by the... read more

Admittedly, I ordered the trout without checking the price and was shocked to find it was € 40 /kg. The trout was overcooked and v dry. Served with tinned veg! I later learned I had ordered Ochrid trout, an almost extinct fish which is described as a 'fossil' of the Lake. Conservationists want to impose a ban on catching it... More

This restaurant was a huge disappointment. It's in a great location and we expected so much more but the service was non-existent and the quality of the food was below acceptable. It's also very expensive. With so many good choices in Ohrid, I would skip this restaurant.

After leaving the hotel I had a couple of hours to kill during lunch time and my friend and I got the fish soup, seafood salad and skopsko. The fish soup was one of the best I have tried in a long time, we really enjoyed it and the seafood salad was very tasty as well. The only glitch was... More

We were there in 2007 and loved it but we thought the food was not as good this time around but still enjoyable

We took our conference group of 45 here for four meals over three days. The food is authentic Macedonian fare, not sophisticated, but well prepared and served hot. The servers worked very hard to take and serve all our orders efficiently and with a good attitude. It is comfortable, especially outside overlooking the lake. There may be other places in... More
