Been there several times and sure enough, "thumb up" for that place.

The restaurant is fairly representative for Macedonia and for the Balkan cuisine in general.

Can not say the place is special, but reckon someone had a brilliant marketing idea to call the place like that. And to display many photos with political leaders from that period.

You can see Che Guevarra, Kenedy, Churchill, De Gaulle and several other chaps from that "bunch". Even a well disguised moustache and unmistakable hair cut of Hitler. Straight in front of your eyes - I challenge you to find it!

The restaurant must have been built after the communist era, has no particular endowments, but just the idea of Tito's "patronage" is just making a different.

Otherwise, good food with a wide variety, regular drinks and a fair service, including most of waiters speaking a fair English and providing a good service.

And, in the evenings, they have live music too, or at least in week-end days.

And above all, prices just can not be beaten, by any other restaurant in the area.

The only downside, toilets should have been better arranged and cleaning maintained.

But all in all, should you visit Skopje, this is a place you should at least not miss it, if not to come again.

We loved it here we visited twice during our stay in Skopje.

The food was all good, hearty, traditional food in great portion sizes. Salads were all very fresh and we tried a few mains which were also all very flavoursome.

No it's not fine dining, but the restaurant is very chilled, has a really unique decor inside and out, staff are friendly to foreign visitors without being overbearning, and the beer and wine is all exactly as you find in expensive restaurants - at a fraction of the cost.

Highly recommend as part of your visit to Skopje.

In the Kaj Marshalot you get very delicious food for very fair prices. the ambient is basic and has it's own charme (old pics from former socialist leaders all over the place).
the food is really fresh made and very tasty - if you want to try the local cuisine I can absolutely recommend that place.

Being interested in Yugoslava and especially the life and times of Tito, this restaurant caught my eye.
Does not go over board like other bars and restaurants with the former Communist Tat from wall to wall, but clearly a bar that likes to reflect on the past and honors the life of Tito, but without going over board.
About a 10 minute walk from the center of Skopje.
For my meal I had a traditional Macedonia soup and salad as a starter, followed by the pepper steak, all washed down with a few local beers.
Food was really tasty and the staff where really helpful for suggesting what to order.
Think, including tip, bill did not even come to £10.
If I find myself in Skopje again I will be sure to return here.

When I read the reviews, I expected more. As fans of Jugoslavija and everything connected with it, we wanted to have dinner in this restaurant. The ambient is good, but the food is averge, nothing special really.
When we were there, there was a group celebrating something and it was interesting to observe, the atmosphere was great. There was also a good serbian music playing.
