Sweet, warm and nice place. We just had some drink but when I saw the next tables plates, dishes so attractive. It is just in the center.

Centrally located, decked out like a Viennese cafe. Good place for a quick bite. The pizzas and salads are good. Also a good place to meet friends for a coffee.

This became our most frequented restaurant because of its proximity to our wonderful Alexandar Square Hotel, friendly service, decent food and reasonable prices. We had lunch here one day, dinner twice and dessert another time. It was always busy with locals and we recommend it.

Excellent place, with fantastic food. Everything I ever tried here was great. The service is a bit slow sometimes, but great food and wine makes up for it.

I had a great lunch there so I returned later again. What I can say is that pizza and pasta are really delicious here, they have a fair selection of local wines and desserts (poppy seed baklava is really recommended for the sweet tooth) and the enterieur is charmingly elegant. Service could be a bit more attentive but is already... More

I dined in this lovely looking restaurant located on the grand Alexander the Great Square. Their food is delicious and not typical of the area. It creates imaginative riffs on Italian and local cuisine. I had a wonderful couscous dish. Their Spaghetti Bolognese was plentiful and well executed. The prices very reasonable and service attentive. It was for me the... More

if it was in a different location, the restaurant would not have as many visitors. Average food, average service, average cooking quality....

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.
