I had a light meal of a cesar salad and chicken patty stuffed with cheese. It was a nice lunch. The service was very good with a waiter whose English was very good. The best part of the restaurant is the view. The tables seem to be hanging over a cliff looking down on Tirana and the cable cars. It... More

Went out for a meal with my husband. Really pleased with this restaurant (went due to other good reviews on Trip Advisor). We were amazed by the variety and quantity of dishes, all of which were delicious. Will definitely be returning. Friendly and helpful staff too! Love you Tirana.

Overall, my experience here was excellent. The journey on the Djat express cable-carts had phenomenal views of Tirana. This was made even better during my time spent at the restaurant. Service was attentive and fast. Food was very well priced (not too expensive!) and the views once again, were one of a kind. Will definitely be visiting again.

Went there with a friend. The staff was very friendly and able to speak English. We had a lunch there, mushroom soups and two portions of lamb meat. No need to say that everything was delicious! Keep it up guys up there.

My boyfriend and I loved our excursion to the Dajtit mountain (went there on December 10th), which is located right over the city of Tirana. We went there by the cable car service (800 Leke per person), which was a wonderful ride of app. 20 minutes, during which we could gaze at the beautiful landscape underneath us. The restaurant has...
