Lyra has great interior and amazing yard where you can eat. In the evenings there is live band that plays traditional music and wide range of different traditional food you can order. All the products are always fresh and the dishes have the warmth of home-made food. There is also great choice of local wines that you can chose from.... More

I used to go to Lyra often with my parents many many years ago. This restaurant exists since 1996.. I started going again 2months ago and I saw that it hadn't changed much from what I remember. Its mostly the same staff and the acoustic band that plays in the night have been playing there for more then 15years. The... More

We were very excited to go here since we saw good reviews on Tripadvisor. When we first arrived the staff didn't even welcomed us and said hello before we asked if this was the restaurant Lyra. After we've been seated we asked for recommendations from the staff about the food and drinks. He didn't have a clue about what to... More

Lyra is still one of the best places in Skopje. Nice atmosphere, good service, music - You may like it or not, but is always of good level. The food is good, the selection of wines too. I have found the service quality variable from time to time. I cannot say I found bad service, but up and down yes,... More

Have been to Lira several times. The food is the standard Macedonian selection - ok, nothing fancy, but compared to other places a bit more expensive. This time I was with a CEO from a foreign company and his colleagues who were visiting Macedonia for a potential investment. At the end of the dinner the CEO paid with his credit... More

The enterior is really nice, kind of rustic style, really warm colours. The personel working there are more then welcoming. Would recomend to everyone that would like to have nice dish with good price wines.. In the evening there is a typical kafana band playing traditional Macedonian music.

We've prefered Lira because of positive reviews on Tripadvisor. The atmosphere was very pleasant and quite authentic. But the loud and dated 90's pop music from a radio station doesn't match the ambiance at. The food seemed to be rushed out of the kitchen and didn't seem to be prepared with care. My wife had veal medallions but it contained... More
