Expensive for Skopje! Lots of foreigners and you people from the military camp in Kosovo. Good bar and place to meet.

He is no longer waoking here , probablu unsatisfied , and this place has lost its soul. He had made this place so vibvrant and was full of energy like the... More

I see a few reviews here mention the waiter Costa... They just lost Costa!, sadly he got a better offer. The guy made this place but time will tell what happens next. Knew me and my guests and what they drink the moment I brought them in. Most of them tend to spend a fortune by local standards and he... More

My husband and I had lunch here after reading good reviews about the restaurant. We were delighted by the Mojitos we received and they were delicious! However, we shared the risotto and the chicken schnitzel and they were both very average. The risotto was cold on arrival and I had to send it back, only to receive it back just... More

We went here on the basis of good reviews- it's changed its name to Cuban Kitchen. Unfortunately the service is awful- more people directing than actually taking orders or serving. We waited 15 mins, got no service and left. There are other places serving similar food and drinks near that are friendlier and have more atmosphere.

A very warm & personal welcome. Waiter did everything to make me feel at ease. Steak was good, as was the local red wine. Cocktail menu with 500 cocktails.....if you feel up to it. Visitors are allowed to write on the wall.... They even give you a pen to do it!!

I have been dining here frequently in the past three years and I like it very much. The place offers a large menu with delicious Cuban specialities and more traditional dishes i.e. Caesar salad. All is nice, portions are generous, service is kind and fun. I highly recommend their pork ribs in apricot jam and the delicious chocolate fondue. Rollos... More
