A group of 11 of us had lunch here and although the food was fine the service really let it down. Our food was served fairly promptly but there were issues with the bill in that although the menu was in English the bill was in Macedonian and there were extra things we didn't have added to the bill. They... More

The food is nice and serving generous. The service is good and one has to sit outdoors to soak in the atmosphere and the beauty of the place.

The restaurant is located next to some fountain water which runs to lake Ohrid. It has tablea right next to and over the water. The food is Macedonian and offers good value for the money.

I went here for lunch, while I stayed at the monastery hotel. Ordered a pork schnitzel, which was ok, but the bread was dry, the veggies not fresh and the potatoes were soaking in oil. The sauce was... well weird. The waiter might have had his first say on the job. It appeared so, at least. The tablecloth was dirty,... More

The restaurant offers the menu, with many local specialities, including few fish species from the Orhid Lake. The prices are relatively high, because of the tourist location and the entertainment, added to the meals. The local band is accompanying you at the dining, playing also the melodies from the country of your origin. The food is pretty good, the fish... More

If you are a fan of Macedonian cuisine this place is a must! As the name suggests this is a restaurant on a small island. Beautiful scenery around Saint Naum springs makes this place very inviting. Excellent service and promptly working kitchen made us to enjoy our meals very fast. Dishes full of local flavor, juicy meats, perfect balkan salads.... More

We popped into this restaurant on the strength of the TA reviews. Our experience was very different extremely poor, slovenly service eventually yielded undercooked, virtually raw chicken dishes and an incinerated sausage dish. English was a real problem here - uniquely for Macedonia - I rather suspect though that the disinterested, intransigent staff simply didn't care. So do yourself a... More

The restaurant is located about 30 km outside Ohrid in place called St.Nuam, we went there during our trip with motorbikes to Galicica National Park, we were so cold after it so we looked for some place to warm up. This place was so beautiful that we warmed up imidietly. The staff was amazing, after asking for a blanket, waitress... More

The service is good, but it depends which waiter servs you. The food is OK, but I think should be a bit better quality, since it is on a such amasing location..Personaly a expected a bit more and for what we ordeed expected to pay bit less.

The restaurant was so good! We had 45 minutes until departure our boat, in this time they took our request, made food for 9 people and we had enough time to eat. Uncredible waiter! So tasty food!
