One of the best local foods we had in Macedonia! Little bit pricey if compared to other local restaurants, but worth it. Tasty food. Only one thing they could improve: when we went to the restaurant to pick up the order (ordered by the website...KLIKNI JADI) there were lot of smokers inside the restaurant. If I were to dine there, I would give up eating there because I cannot stand the smell of cigarettes, even more in an eating place. And also the waiter instead of asking the order number, he asked about the amount we paid online. I had no problem showing him the price we paid, but maybe for other people it could be little bit embarassing/awkward to be asked to show it.More

We ordered food from Skopski Merak a couple of times. It’s top-level local food! Highly recommended. Well-cooked meat, decent portions, tasty bread, fresh and delicious salad. Probably only one thing I would mention for those who want to visit the restaurant in. When we visited...it was really a heavy cigarette smoke inside. As people were smoking inside.. I would advice the Skopski Merak to prohibit smoking inside the restaurant.. It’s unhealthy.More

Amazing food! We asked a waiter for a recommendation, and he was helpful and brought us starters that were authentic (from ajvar and pindjur to their version of garlic bread). For main dish we asked for the menus but wanted to try also local specialties...and it did not dissapoint... at all! We couldn’t finnish our main dishes, but took a brave step and decided to try their baklava. We ordered only one portion! Special compliments to the waiter who made us feel welcome, brought us open wines they had for us to try and decide which we liked better. Most of all we liked how honest he was; to the point where he said we won’t be able to finnish our main dish 😅More

It cost us 2,5 € to get to this place from Skopje Bus Station by taxi. Make sure you book a table on a Saturday nite for a good place! Live music starts around 9 and takes place at the lower level where you can...smoke too! Many choices of delicious local food with affordable prices.put your make up on wear your heels and have a lovely night at Skopje Merak!More

If Skopje than you must to visit Skopski Merak. I advise you to reserve a table, because during the weekend is usually full. Our waiter was polite and helpful. The meals were very delicious. At the end we received a small shot of a local...alcohol as a gift of the restaurant. I can truly recommend this place.More

I am not sure if Skopski Merak would take euros, but it could easily be possible. I believe they do accept credit cards.
