“Fantastic food at a good price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

We were pleasantly surprised by the fantastic quality of the food at this restaurant. The pizzas (Pastarmalija and Mexicana) were amazing, we still crave their taste (both base and filling) and fancy returning to Bitola just for the pleasure of trying them again. The Macedonian salad has the sweetest and tastiest freshly roast red peppers with fresh tomatoes and fragrant parsley that we have tried for ages. Together with a pint of Skopsko the bill still amounted to less than £10. The only setback was that we had to wait for about 40 minutes to get the order delivered and as we were pressed for time, we could not enjoy the pleasure of the food as we ought to. The waiter was working on his own and maybe the kitchen staff were not numerous either.

“Refreshingly different!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

It was refreshing to find something in Bitola that was not just grill (skara) or pizza. I do thoroughly enjoy both grilled meat and pizza, but once in a while it is nice to have something else. Enter Kus Kus.
We shared a big bowl of cous cous and were positively surprised of the mix of North African cous cous spiced with some Macedonian herbs.
Worth a visit when you want to have a break from the delicious grill :)

“Slice of pizza and north Africa in one”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

Kus-Kus is small restaurant located just off the main pedestrian street in Bitola -Shirok Sokak, opposite the French and British consulates.
The restaurant it sells is pizzeria, but not your typical Italian joint.
The restaurant also serves choice of North African dishes..
Hence the name Kus-Kus..
Their Tabuleh salad is dram and the veg and lam kus-kus to die for..
I was so surprised to find such an good north African food on the Balkans.
Their menu is extensive,hot and cold starters,pizzas,main dishes,north African food,
They also serve choice of few veg salads with delicious innovative dressings.
They also offer home delivery and take orders via phone or e-mails. Best thing is that you can pay with card on line as well.
Great athmosphere and very good service make this little gem great find.
