We had breakfast one morning - the bacon omelet was fine and the egg/tomato/pepper combination was also okay. Bread came with the meal. Service was okay. Overall average.

The food was okay but nothing special. The service was okay until I didn't ask for the bill and I waited for 20 minutes. They don't have a lot of choices on the menu and it's very very expensive for what you get! 😒

Service was awful and food was worse. You would think we would have known better and avoided the empty restaurant...there are so many places in town that are better. Avoid Riben.

Not sure why the bad reviews as I really enjoyed dining here. The waiter couldn't do enough,very friendly but not too much. I had the fish soup which I have to say was the best I had here, with Nice, big chunks of fish. Make sure to add the garlic sauce ( absolutely divine!)though as otherwise I found it a... More

Really surprised by the poor reviews. We ate here twice and the food was delicious both times along with friendly service and a great location. The menu is picture driven which to me is pretty useful. The place looks out over the lake. In response to the guy who ordered a 1kg trout... Ohrid trout can be caught from the... More

I ate here twice during my stay. The first time I just had some ice cream, but having seen the menu and because the staff were very friendly, I went back the next day for a meal. I had the fish soup, which was very tasty. The staff were very helpful and chatty without being intrusive. Service was quick and... More

this restaurant is the classic touristic restaurant in the main square but I was very hungry and did not want to look any further . The menu has pictures like all the touristic places. I have to say that the food was not bad at all. I took grilled squids and they were delicious. And it was cheap as well

Admittedly, I ordered the trout without checking the price and was shocked to find it was € 40 /kg. The trout was overcooked and v dry. Served with tinned veg! I later learned I had ordered Ochrid trout, an almost extinct fish which is described as a 'fossil' of the Lake. Conservationists want to impose a ban on catching it... More
