A couple’s romantic dinner at a lakeside restaurant was ruined when waves crashed into it and flooded it. 

Anna Eklow, 30, and husband Erik, 29, from London, had hoped to enjoy a tasty meal at Kaneo Restaurant, which overlooks the picturesque Lake Ohrid in Ohrid, North Macedonia. 

But a huge bombardment of waves smashed against the windows and the restaurant soon became overwhelmed. 

Anna Eklow, 30, and husband Erik, 29, were at Kaneo Restaurant in Ohrid, Macedonia, when it flooded 

Footage taken last week shows chaos unfold as water seeps into the eating area. Staff are filmed asking diners to evacuate.  

The couple were sat next to the windows as waves can be seen crashing up against them. 

One waitress can be seen standing in a puddle of water while serving customers. A few seconds later, there is the sound of a customer crying out and more water comes in.  

Ms Eklow (pictured with husband Erik) said: ‘It was quite an experience seeing Ohrid in terrible weather. At least now we’ve seen something that most tourists haven’t’ 

Ms Eklow said: ‘The water was wild and whipping, high waves crashed into the restaurant and brought along a lot of flotsam, which spread into the restaurant area. 

‘Everything was damaged in the restaurant; the furniture, the bar, equipment, as water seeped in everywhere. 

‘The manager of the restaurant and the staff were all devastated.

At the end of the clip, staff and customers are standing and moving chairs from the water.
