I am living in Skopje for a year and this place caught my eye as it is currently ranked number one and is relatively close to my apartment, so I popped in expecting something brilliant. If I am honest I was a little disappointed, its number one status reflects the overall choice of places in Skopje rather than the brilliance of this one.
There are lots of positives, the location is a quiet sort of bohemian/arty/slightly suburban area to the north of the main drag and there are lots of other restaurants here mainly patronised by locals - so worth a visit, because the Italian and Turkish orientated tourists traps of the main square and the old town do wear thin after a while. The atmosphere was lovely, a outside garden, with soft music and attentive service.
But the food was no more than hearty - it is a Macedonian menu, so think big salads with generous amounts of cheese and roast meats and fresh from the over bread. All good stuff, but to a degree it felt formulaic, and to a my palate overcooked and under-seasoned. That said exceptional value. So go for the atmosphere and to get authentic Macedonian cuisine, but don't expect a gourmet experience to blow your socks off.
