We spent a lazy afternoon here, fab lunch - by far the best food we had in North Macedonia) - and great service. Try the ‘trout in prison’, paper wrapped pieces of rainbow trout, veg and noodles. So tasty. With amazing views over the lake...and not too many people, as this is located right at the end of the board walk from town. There’s a small shingle beach right next to the restaurant and beautiful clear water perfect for swimming.More

I will be direct and honest here. Food was creative and simple with perfect execution of dishes. We called it "smart food". Using local ingredients, not over-complicating them but again presenting them as they are. Meaning, full of flavors and they were rich in texture,...and flavor - there was no need to add anything or remove it from the dish. Good balance. The portions are just right. We ended everything with deserts, and they just sealed our experience on a super positive note. Great waiters, who know how to communicate and "behave" in their roles. Nice location on the waterfront. All in all, we left the place with a huge smile on our faces looking forward to writing this review. I am not doing it often but for me, it was a great way to say; Thank you.More

I'd rather say 3.5. All the tables outside had signs reserved. The waiter gave us a separate table 50 cm from another couple, all the rest outside were empty throughout our visit. I believe that this is a deliberate procedure to have the best places...for potential rich clients. The food was tasty but not exceptional. One dish was a bit of salty. The view was beautiful. We didn't have to wait too long for the order.More

The only restaurant in Ohrid! You should order: For two persons, tell them to split 1 portion for two of you (in two plates). 1. Fennel salad 2. Cod croquettes 3. "Agrodolce." shrimps 4. Gundi "Toscani" 5. 250g each Trout "Ala Diavola" 6. Apple tarte...tatin with Vanila. My choice with this food will be: vine Grashvina-Lazar. It will cost you around 70 euros with the vine.More

The view is really amazing but the dishes weren’t that great. It wasn’t bad but it wasn’t very good either. Resume: view 10/10 ; food: meh. The appetizer tablet was good but main dishes were a bit basic and lacking taste. Expensive compared to others,...I guess the view « justifies » the price. Expecting better from one of the best of Ohrid following Tripadvisor.More

We ate breakfast here on 2 days and dinner on one day. The food was delicious, the service was super friendly and attentive and the general ambience was unbeatable. It was comfortable and nicely decorated with sensational views. The first night we tried the neighbouring...restaurant as it had better reviews but you shouldn’t be fooled!! Kaneo is much better in every way- food, service, ambience, decor! Highly recommended.More

Great selection of appetizers and main courses were paired with delightful local wines. There's something for every palate: we enjoyed green salad with grilled goat cheese, homemade ravioli with shrimps, foie gras and truffle cream sauce, fish, meat and homemade sorbet for desert, made us...come back several times.More

The only thing saving this from being a one star review was our waiter Stefan. We ordered a mixture of starters, including mussels, shrimps and anchovies. The mussels were cold, dry and grey - and still had grit in them. The shrimps were missing the...anchovies that the menu said they came with. When the mains came, we had ordered the sole. I don’t even know how to describe how bad the sole was. It was undercooked, coated in some batter that was soggy and not cooked, so that you could see the flour that coated the fish. It was swimming in butter also. I could not eat any of it. On top of this, it was a frozen piece of fish - despite the restaurant promising fresh fish and being located directly on the lake. Do not go here to eat, especially as it is not cheap.More

The sole I ordered was undercooked. I thought perhaps this is what the chef was hoping for but it was inedible. The dish came in three pieces. I tried to eat the first piece but it was ridiculously drenched in butter. The sole was cooked...in a flour batter, so I opened up the other 2 pieces to see if they had been cooked. They were also undercooked so I didn't eat them. The waiter was run off his feet due to a lack of staff. He never came and asked if everything was okay when we tucked into our meal. When the waiter did clear our plates I asked him to ask the chef if they thought the fish was cooked properly, if yes, then I stand corrected. He did ask if I wanted a replacement but I had lost my appetite by then. I didn't hear anything back from the kitchen about the state of the fish. When I got the bill I asked what the chef thought. His words was they were upset that it was undercooked, but not enough to actually offer a discount or take it off the bill because some had been eaten!More

Best restaurant in Ohrid by all measurements! High quality food— menu varies each season, but they retain some of the top dishes. This is NOT a traditional restaurant, but a more high end place with fusion cuisines. They have home made fish soup, pasta and...bread. They Tout in Prison is a pasta classic that you will love. The latest triumph is the starter how we, the Cod Croquette. They are sublime. Service— is traditionally excellent and charming. A very pleasant experience. Wine— huge wine list. They have most of the Macedonian wines you must try, and some international wines if you really must have it. Let them advise you… they know their stuff. The setting— is unique and unbeatable. On the lake, just beneath the most famous church/ image of ohrid. You can have a long walk to the location from the town square or you can hire a boat, about 10 euro. Prices— are the highest in town. Worth every penny.More

The restaurant was lovely inside and has beautiful surroundings, but there was no atmosphere. It didn't help that we were the only people there but still. Food was lovely. I had truffle, fois gras and prawn ravioli and my friend had cashew nut curry. Both...were delicious. Fairly good value. We had cocktails. Very nice but quite strong (you get better value for money than the UK). The staff weren't unfriendly, but they weren't very attentive and it was like they were waiting for us to leave. So we didn't stay for dessert. If it wasn't for this I would give a higher rating.More
