Description: The food is absolutely delicious prepared with spices specific to the Macedonian recipes. Portions were quite tremendous and our server had prior experience in the US industry, therefore, our requests were met in anticipation; we were very impressed to see that our bill for two persons was only Euro 19.57 which included the service tax of 18% but not the tip. We had an entree and a main course each in addition to the sparkling water and tea. Table was too small for the big plates brought to service. Excellent conversations with the staff, most of them speak English. We were also introduced by our server to the local history based on the displayed photos of the mats. Highly recommend this restaurant in such a modern E European city located within 2 min walking distance from the memorial of Mother Teresa.

“Very disappointing!”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

We wanted to have a special night out, so we went to Pelister, because of the good ratings.
We were let down so bad. The salads were great, and they waitress very sweet and serviceminded. When we got the mains, everything turned around. I ordered a steak Medium - the one i got, was grey and very well done! I complained, and the waitress got mad at me, and told me this i medium. I have been working as a chef for 11 years now, so i think i know what a medium steak looks like. The pasta dish that my girlfriend got, was dry, the shrimps were overcooked and there was still intestines in!! We complained again, and the waitress was just rude, and went to get the manager. After some arguing, they finally agreed that we should not pay for the pasta. Halleluja. We will never come here again.
