People here know how to skillfully prepare meat. We had veal, it was perfectly done, not dry and gristly at all. So, the food is perfect but they have serious problem with flies that bite like mosquitoes and there are hundreds of them. Eat fast and run.

Come and try their lamb and paidaki! We come here every time we go to and come back from Greece by car. Simple decor, but perfect food in this family run restaurant.

Best prepared lamb meat. They use lamb from 12-14 kg baked in an oven 3-4 hours. Every time when I go on vacation in Greece always eat there

Several times came, roast lamb, veal and lamb chops are excellent, other meals average, but this is not coming to the other dishes, roasts high price, but justified by the quality, decent drink prices, whenever I walk at lunch or dinner through Gevgelija come here
