“Great atmosphere, very good food”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

Beautiful house (with a good story) and it makes for a wonderful atmosphere, very relaxed yet elegant. Good service, appropriately attentive. Food contains some excellent dishes. The dried plums in prosciutto (kebabs) were the best. The tavche gravche was fine but no different or better than what you can get at any number of taverna-style lunch restaurants in town. There were other nice dishes in casserole dishes. But the baklava dessert was really terrible--it was a Sunday night, and maybe it just wasn't fresh, but it was just weak. Still, the overall dinner was really nice, and a very good price (as expected in Skopje). Dinner for two (two glasses of wine and a bottle of mineral water), two starters, two mains, a dessert (suitable for sharing) and a coffee, with a tip (very American) = 1800-ish denars, or about $38.

“Great Macedonian experience”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

We arrived here in the afternoon after a nice walk and a drink on the quay next to the water.
The restaurant was almost empty, it seemed we just missed the lunch service in which they served 200 persons ...
Nevertheless, there was no proble in giving us a seat and serving us, we asked our friendly waitress to surprise us with traditional macedonian dishes.
I must say she did a great job, she served us (of course) the skopje salad but also much more then that including a sublime macedonian wine of 2007 - Vranec.
Many small dishes, one even more nice then the other and after all that, a lovely lamb stew.
A great afternoon experience which I would certainly recommend to anyone going to Skopje.

“traditional Macedonian”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Its a very nice renovated old macedonian house with real macedonien cuisine. You have to try "mezze" which is a traditional arrangement of starters.

“Excellent local food!!!”
Reviewed 10 May 2014 via mobile

Located in the oldest building of the city. The restaurant is located close to the center. The interior is very beautiful, with it's terrace it must be a great place during summer as well. I had a steak with mushroom sauce as main dish and some garlic bread. It was delicious, the meat was so tender it melted in my mouth. The service was very good as well. I recommend this restaurant to everyone. The only minus point is, that it might be too touristy, but don't let that scare you off.
