I have been to quite a few places around Bitola and Ohrid, this was the best. Nothing fancy and over the top but true culture, wholesome food, prepared and served with care. We sat and eat in a wooden room floating over the water. I had sausages, home made and home smoked. See pics! They were amazing. They spoke English.... More

Ordered a chicken steak, it was raw. Service was not very friendly. Will not come here again. Views are nice.

I suppose that we should be greatful that a restaurant with a captive audience doesn't charge humungous prices, so this place is pretty much OK. Totally geared up for the boat and bus tours so service is sporadic, but basically pretty good.

As October is not a crowded month, in a warm sunny day it was easy to find a nice table on the edge of the raft, but we intended only to drink a coffee and juice so I can't comment the food. The menu looked as axpected and we were surprised with the prices that were not much higher than... More

I went to another table to pick one, as they already ordered. All the waiter literally ignored out signs. After 45min... More

The prices were very reasonable, the fish was great and the steaks were very good. All the plates I saw come out onto our table and others were perfectly garnished and there were a lot of heads moving in approval of their meals. It's usually busy so give yourself plenty of time before the next boat leaves as the service... More

Extraordinary location on the small island near the springs of the Drim river and close to the st. Naum monastery. The food is good and the place offers a variety of macedonian dishes and BBQ. A place worth visiting.

Thank steve_ann22
