We visited this restaurant due to the good reviews however we were very disappointed. The food was very bland and the service wasn't much better. This is more a fast food outlet than a restaurant.

There seems to be some confusion over what restaurant is actually Destan as the photos and reviews cover the one in the bazaar area and the one off of Macedonia square. We tried the one in the bazaar and the waiter was rude, disinterested and...More

I'm not sure why this place is rated so highly. The location in the main square was deserted on a Friday night. I went to the Old Bazaar location for lunch. The service was adequate--two different servers basically ignored me until I stood up--and the...More

The Old Bazaar in Skopje is still bustling with like since centuries. But since 1913 tourists and locals enjoy the ćevapčići made by Destan after a traditional recipe. And they probably end enjoying the delicious trilece, a sponge dessert of Albanian origin made with caramel...More

Destan is in prime location, just when entering the old town bazaar from the famous Stone bridge. You simply cannot miss it on your right hand side. It's a famous restaurant, recommended by a local. It's specialized in grilled meat, most famous being the cevapcici,...More

The owners are Muslim , but I am not sure they abide by strict Sharia/Halal rules. Deffinatley the kebapi are made of beef and lamb.

Kebab restaurant where the taste of the kebabs has remained the same as it was back in the time when you were children. Times change, but the quality, the tradition and the reputation of Destan remain the same.
