I recently had lunch here with my Australian and Albanian family and it was delicious. The food, as always in Albania, was cheap and plentiful and tasty to boot. The view adds to the great flavour of the food and ambience of the restaurant. A 3 course meal for 6 with alcoholic drinks set us back $160 AU or about... More

We travelled for 15 minutes by Dajti Express Cable Car and enjoyed the views over Tirana. To top this up we booked a table for 5 at Ballkoni I Dajtit and must say that you'll never get a table reservation with such a view!! Great place to escape the city and take the family out for lunch or dinner. Good... More

Ballkoni I Dajtit is a restaurant near the top of Mount Dajt just outside Tirana and is set at the edge of the mountain around 5,000ft above the city with fantastic areas of the whole of Tirana from its balcony. The place is lovely with a lot of wood décor reminiscent of an Alpine theme. It is spotlessly clean and... More

After a lovely cable car trip to Mt. Dajit, we stopped in the Ballkoni Dajtit restaurant for lunch. Although it was a busy Sunday afternoon in the restaurant, service was prompt, friendly and efficient, and our lunch was wonderful. We had salad, roast lamb and potatoes, and all were delicious and reasonably priced. It was a very enjoyable way to... More

After an exciting and relaxing day on Dajtit mountain, we decided to dine here before getting back to the city (to be right on time for Euro-2012 semifinal). It was quite early (around 7pm), so the restaurant was almost empty (while we were impressed by the spaces and number of tables). Even if the day was sunny and hot but... More
