The restaurant is in the very heart of town opposite the Warrior with a horse" statue. It has friendly service and a good range of small and main items on its menu.

Food was nothing special, chick pea salad was very dull, pasta pesto salad had no pesto in it, pizza was good button better. Good location but you pay for it.

Was here last year and wanted a repeat. Had dinner with a party of 11. I had the trout potato meatball starter followed by the pesto chicken. A good meal reasonably priced.

The food is absolutely delicious prepared with spices specific to the Macedonian recipes. Portions were quite tremendous and our server had prior experience in the US industry, therefore, our requests were met in anticipation; we were very impressed to see that our bill for two persons was only Euro 19.57 which included the service tax of 18% but not the tip. We had an entree and a main course each in addition to the sparkling water and tea. Table was too small for the big plates brought to service. Excellent conversations with the staff, most of them speak English. We were also introduced by our server to the local history based on the displayed photos of the mats. Highly recommend this restaurant in such a modern E European city located within 2 min walking distance from the memorial of Mother Teresa.
