I ate here twice within 4 days. First for dinner and second a lazy sunday lunch outside. Food is traditional macedonian...you won't go hungry...it was all delicious. The waiters were really friendly and knowledgeable and spoke good english. they even helped me go off piste...from the menu as I fancied some blue cheese with my amazing wine! A superb wine list, from the basic to the best of macedonian wines.More

We went with a group on a Saturday night - service was a little slow - food portions were huge and tasty....so think about sharing. Had a nice cold pint of local Skopsko draft beer - reasonably priced around £3. Large groups of men in...the restaurant, not many women...and later a band of musicians came along and played traditional music (to be honest the music was a bit of a dirge). The groups of men seemed happy with the musicians, putting banknote in the folds of the accordian.More

Excellent traditional food and great service, the wine was also local and really good. We went there on a monday and it was almost full which I guess is a good sign and they also had live music which we really liked

It's a bit expensive restaurant compare to the Skopje standarts; but it's highly recommended. I also have to mention that it's in Bohemian Street and you can realize the differences between this location and the others right away. There you can try Macedonian kitchen with...some traditional wine. Our red wine tasted like carob which we unfortunately don't like very much. We ordered smoked pork neck as a starter which we did love so deeply and tava as main dish. Tava was also delicious, but I should mention that it's a really oily meal.More

Here on business. Went to a different, and rated place every meal I could so far for four days/nights (6 places in total so far) and this by far is the best place I’ve eaten. In a very upmarket part of the city. Mostly locals...and waaay out of the way of the tourist-laden centre. Service was fantastic. I was on my own, and my waiter, Ljubisa, saw to it that he would be my companion. Very friendly and accommodating, providing me with excellent recommendations. Because of Ljubisa’s advice, I thought the food was excellent - and he wasn’t only choosing the most expensive thing on the menu like some places. For a customer from Britain/France/Germany etc, you’ll find the prices VERY reasonable, despite its upmarket feel. I paid approx 23 euros for 2 starters a main and 4 beers. Finally the atmosphere was excellent. It felt busy but not loud. Between 8 and 9pm (just when your food is settling), a live band started playing a mixture of traditional music and covers. It was perfect.More

Chosen this restaurant based on TripAdvisor. Food is very good with all typical local dishes and not only. the environment is pleasant with live music. Ptrons are mostly / all locals which is good evidence of quality. service is excellent, professional and courteous. The only...problem is smoking policy. smoking is in general allowed outdoor and on the patio. We had a patron next to our table who lit a cigar and smoked us. We had to rapidly wrap up our dinner then.More

We sat outside where the music from inside and the restaurant over the road clashed, but the food was good and the service prompt and efficient. Consider sharing a main course unless you are very hungry indeed.

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