Slow service - asked for water but wasn't brought until prompted a second time. The service was also rude. Food was bland and dry - the chicken skewers were misleading; they were more like chicken meatballs which were stabbed into an old sliced orange - not very appetising. Could not finish. For what it was worth and tasted like, you'd... More

Excellent Italian food in the center of the square. Enjoyed great food with good wine selection. Across from the Marriott. Highly recommend.

Make sure that you go here at a "good" time. The wait can be LONG, if not! However, our experience was great. We did wait a while - but the staff was excellent and very courteous. The food took a while to be served once we ordered - but was excellent, and was very reasonably priced (by U.S. standards). This... More

Very good food; plenty of options from a diverse menu. Everything is very good - from the simple sandwiches and salads to the risottos. Try the mascarpone risotto! High quality and low price - good for quick lunches and nice dinners.

My girlfriend and I went there for a coffee. Unfortunately the terrasse was closed because of snow but in summer this restaurant offers the best view on the statue of Alexander. The pizzas, fishes looked great so we were tempted to get a small dessert with our coffee. Really good. The staff was nice nice to us and we could... More

It had many owners during the years, but being on the main square it is the most popular place to stop by and rest during sight seeing. Food is nice, mostly European cuisine.

The food is absolutely delicious prepared with spices specific to the Macedonian recipes. Portions were quite tremendous and our server had prior experience in the US industry, therefore, our requests were met in anticipation; we were very impressed to see that our bill for two persons was only Euro 19.57 which included the service tax of 18% but not the tip. We had an entree and a main course each in addition to the sparkling water and tea. Table was too small for the big plates brought to service. Excellent conversations with the staff, most of them speak English. We were also introduced by our server to the local history based on the displayed photos of the mats. Highly recommend this restaurant in such a modern E European city located within 2 min walking distance from the memorial of Mother Teresa.
