People are always searching for excellent places to eat, places where the food is perfect, the service is good, the waiters can cater to English speaking guests and the prices are reasonable. Yep, that would be Bella Vista.
Located in the strict center of town, on the Quay of the Vardar River outside the main city mall Bella Vista is one of my most favorite spots there because it has the perfect location and is a fancy looking restaurant. I go there when I want a quiet and romantic dinner inside, or when I just want to stop by for coffee and a smoke on the terrace.
And the food, ah, yes, the food is probably the main reason why I come here and my favorite is the cheeseburger. A slice of the best quality hamburger meat with an excellent piece of cheese on top, in ciabatta bread, and a mountain of mouth warming french-fries on the side at a great price. I absolutly love the pastas and pizzas – the chef works his magic here as well. The Caesar Salad is also a favorite of mine, and the steaks, well… If you are a steak fanatic like me you’d definitely have to go for the Florentine or the T-Bone Steak.
A place with quiet Jazzy / Bossa Nova music during the day and occasional evening gigs and Sunday matinees Bella Vista should be high on your priority list while in Skopje. And don’t forget to try the house wine – it’s amazing!
