“Romantic and magical setting in an ancient caravanserail... one of our best dining experiences ever!”

The atmosphere of Pivnica An (in the Turkish bazaar in Skopje) is magical, romantic and virtually unbeatable for having dinner outside: only a couple of tables in the interior yard of an ancient caravanserail, all of which wonderfully illuminated. Friendly service and great, traditional food. In other countries, people would be queuing to have such an experience. Not in Skopje, a city which is still to be discovered (to our great delight that night, as the experience was truly authentic)...We had some drinks at Pelister (at the time of writing, the number one for Skopje on Tripadvisor): yes, it is nice there to have a drink right next to the so-called "Warrior on a Horse"-statute. But, seriously, nothing beats Pivnica An when it comes to having a more intimate dining experience...

This really is a very nice place to eat, we ate outdoors in the covered courtyard, the service was quick and the food delicious.

Pivnica An and great food and service. The waiter kindly made us up an appetizer plate for two so we could try the various Macedonian apps. Delicious!

This place is in a brilliant setting in an old Ottoman inn in the bazaar area. The food was good. Service a little pushy at times, but a relaxed atmosphere. It would have scored higher without the pathetic sexist poster in the men's toilets. Seriously - time to ditch the Why A Beer Is Better Than A Woman poster (in English) now it's 2012. I have a sense of humour but it is really quite offensive and most incongruous in a fairly 'upscale' restaurant.

The location is nice, but other than that, there are many other places which offer better service, better food and of course more reasonable prices
