Pastel Wine & Dine is a modern restaurant located in the downtown of Skopje dedicated to food and wine lovers. We offer a contemporary urban approach in the gastronomy. Our recipes were created as a fusion between the old, traditional French and Italian cuisine blended with new and modern techniques of cocking. At this moment, Pastel Wine & Dine is probably the only place in Skopje where you would have the culinary experience typical for a modern boutique restaurant in any of the world’s best gastronomic centers, yet at very affordable prices (check the online menu). The selection of wines in Pastel was made by one of the best Macedonian sommeliers, with several options for pairing with every dish and is constantly reviewed with new wines added on regular basis.



The inside of the Pastel Wine & Dine is dominated by warm colors of natural wood, chocolate and autumn red leaves, with elements of a modern design and architectural details taken from the Eiffel tower in Paris. The restaurant has a terrace surrounded by flowers and small evergreen trees, where you can feel the everyday rhythm of the city.
