“Great traditional meat balls”
Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

If you are visiting Skopje's old bazaar area there is no way you can miss Destan. This restaurant is a century old now and is specialized on meat balls (called kebab in this region). The meat balls are served with some very hot peppers and onions. The bread was warm and very tasty. The portions were big. What a taste!
The staff was very welcoming and friendly and finally we paid less than 5€ per person for a full meal. Great value.

“Destan”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

Great place to eat when visiting Old Carsija (market) in Skopje. For me this was the most tasteful meal in Skopje with traditional cevapcici (kebabs) and some additional hot peppers.
