“Good option”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

I am sure is not the best of the best but, nevertheless, is worth it. If you find that is. Is located in a main avenue but address published places the restaurant in the other side of the street. Add to this the fact that Skopje streets have no name plates, that the restaurant has no visible signs and you are set for a scout trip, specially if its at night. That been said, the restaurant (knowing where it is) is in a great, easy to access location and plenty of parking available. I suggest making a reservation as the place is popular and not that big which means it gets full pretty easy. Rotation of tables is slow as Macedonians enjoy the after dinner protocol immensely. Staff is attentive, speaks English and menus are in English as well. Is an extensive local menu with plenty of options. The famous fish stew is only available for lunch. We had the grilled vegetables, trout and carp and were all fantastic, fresh, generous portions with a carefully prepared garnish. Don't miss the garlic bread filled with cheese. We also had a basic humble Macedonian red wine which turned out to be a great choice. The dessert however was very disappointing. We asked for the "baklava" and it was stale, at least two days old and the honey which usually dresses this dessert was substituted for a weak, watered down syrup. Prices are in the higher bracket for Skopje but is a fashionable place and it should not scare you away. They had a great live music local band which maintained and respected the comfort zone for enjoying dinner.

“The ultimate favorite”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

We can truly recommend this place - for us there is no other place like this - friendly, homely, excellent food and great live music. The trout is always delicious. Heavenly salads with the best garlic bread in town. 100% Macedonian!

“Best fish in town”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

This is the best fish restaurant in Skopje. In the travel guide Skopje in Style that I've used during my visit, there were two national restaurants and both of them are really good! But if you order fish go here!
