Good range of food and really tasty

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...

The restaurant has a wonderful location overlooking the city of Tirana.

We had our lunch at the Ballkoni Dajtit Restaurant on a Wednesday in November. The Restaurants was relativly empty, so our Pizzas were served quickly - around ten minutes. The view from our table was phantastic, before fog detracted the view over Tirana. The price for two Pizzas with drinks was good (around 1500 Lek), the waiters were very polite.

Wors experience ever. It took us exactle 1 hour and a half to get the pizza which at the end was awful, the ingredients unrelated to the description, and no one apologised for the terrible service. The only good think was the view, but there are other restaurants nearby with the same view and much more better service...
