Food was just ok. The Staff were rude. Asked to pay separate and the waiter got visibly mad and told us to add up our pay ourself. Told him we couldnt read the reciept since we are not macedonian but he didnt care. Ended up...paying for everyone at pur table myself.More

Wow. We went in not knowing what to eat, we let them suggest us… and we rolled out of the restaurant a few hours later. Just go, trust your feeling. Very friendly and humorous staff

Good, excellent food with local taste and specialities in nice old house ambient. Music is in background with respect to space and history. We have not eaten "hard" food but local special dishes like breaded paprika, gravce (beans), lamb/pork in pot with vegetqbles, macedonian salad...with parsley and roasted paprika salad were all excellent together with red dry macedonian vineMore

I’d never have found this restaurant if it wasn’t for the online reviews and recommendations, and feel the need to add my own since it’s a superb place and one of the highlights of my trip to the city. It’s not in the immediate centre...so it’s unlikely you’d wander past, but it’s an easy walk from any of the main locations. The interior is incredible. Feeling really authentic and traditional, with a water feature in the centre, it’s both comfortable and memorable.Arriving late afternoon I had free choice of almost any table but each of them are large and there’s not going to be a case of feeling cramped here. The member of staff allocated to my table was incredible. While remaining friendly and professional he recommended both super wine options and meal dishes, each of which was perfect. I was surprised to get the bottle of wine decanted through an aerator into my glass and was kept topped up proactively throughout the meal. The menu has a great range of items, but by using the QR code on the table you can also see photos of each dish, in case there’s any confusion; there’s free wifi offered to do this. Food portions were large and arrived quickly and gosh, what wonderful dishes they were! The veal carpaccio starter was really tasty with loads of salad and shavings of cheese. But the winning dish had to be the pork ribs, which smelt divine and is easily the best pork I’ve ever had. Unfortunately my schedule didn’t let me visit again, which was a shame as I’d love to return with it being easily the best meal I had in the city! A must visit in my mind!More

Following reviews, we visited for dinner mid week. The venue is pretty interesting and sets a nice atmosphere. Between us we ordered a mixture of starters and mains, all of which were very tasty. Overall: I'd happily return or recommend to others.

After a few dinners in the city center in the fancy restaurants by the river and close to the main square we sought a recommendation from our hotel and we were given Old City House. Everything was good. The meat stew cooken in the oven...in a pot with vegetables was excellent, the meat so tender and tasty. The salad was large with tasty pomatoes. Raki was excellent the service was quick. Price was moderate. if you want to try local cuisine, this is definitely a place to go.More

Excellent restaurant. Been here several times and everything was always great. Beautiful local interior and delicious local food. There are a lot of restaurants with local cuisine in the city, however, if you want to fully immerse yourself in the local flavour and taste some...really delicious local food, then I definitely recommend this place. Convenient and beautiful electronic menu. The restaurant is located in the centre of the city, but at the same time, the place is cosy and quiet. The prices are quite reasonable. I recommend this restaurant if you would like to fully feel the local flavour.More
