Despite its location in the heart of Ohrid center, this restaurant fails to live up to Ohrid spirit. It's not traditional, the food is not very good, prices are high, but the service and staff is very nice, polite and very very fast.

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.
