Updated: May 15

The Lion - Two visits


The Lion is a hot new restaurant and bar just opened in Ohrid, with the most sensational views of Lake Ohrid.

First and foremost the delightful owners and staff are an absolute pleasure, you feel incredibly welcome from the moment you arrive.


Secondly, the food will keep you coming back for more, traditional Macedonian, tapas and international fusion. Menu is designed to share with a range of options for all appetites.


Definitely try the Zucchini balls, they were heaven! Tacos and traditional beef dishes also a must!

The restaurant is beautifully designed, with modern and high quality furnishings, making it easy to spend the afternoon and evening relaxing with fine wines, cocktails and food with your friends.

The vibe and energy is infectious, definitely a local hotspot, feels like you are part of the family.


Not only great service, food and drinks, but you are also spoilt with untouched views of Lake Ohrid, perfect location to enjoy the magical sunsets of Macedonia.


We were spoilt with surprise live music from a guest during our visit:-)

A very big thank you to Bryan and Kathy (the delightful owners), Phillip (our very attentive waiter) and the rockstar bar crew who made us feel very welcome during our stay in Ohrid.

The Lion is the place to visit in Ohrid, you won't be disappointed.
