Kantina Restaurant Skopje – Why you must eat here

On our first day in Skopje, we were looking for a place to eat, recommended by Lonely Planet. Sadly, it no longer existed, as we soon found out after asking around.

However, our steps took us to a really nice place nearby, where we heard some good music: Kantina Restaurant, Skopje. And I loved the food and the atmosphere so much that I absolutely had to share this with you.

So don’t skip going to Kantina when you visit Skopje. Keep reading to find out why!

Kantina Restaurant Skopje has friendly staff

We sat down on the terrace and a very friendly waitress brought us some menus. They were written in their alphabet, though, which I could barely understand due to the limited knowledge I have of the Greek and Bulgarian alphabets.

However, not to worry, while we were having some beer, the waitress translated almost the entire menu for us and recommended us something good to eat, as well.
