Good food, good service, good view

You can get there using a local Tirana bus, then taking the mile long cable car ride to the top of Mount Dajti National Park. I had lunch at this restaurant on a rainy day, so there were few people in the restaurant. The restaurant has a rustic log cabin decor which fits in with the rest of the... read more

If you up on mount Dajti, then eat there after the hike. The food is excellent, the view amazing and the prices are fair.

A cosy place, with typical wodden furniture, and, litterally, above alla a stunning view on the whole city. Wide menu, friendly service.

The service was very food, fast and effective, giving all the necessary information about the dishes. To our surprise, our waiter spoke perfectly Greek!!! However, the food was not something...

After travelling up in the cable car I decided to get something to eat and drink. I must say the view from the restaurant is amassing. I had a couple of cold beers,a red wine and the veal in mushroom sauce with salad. The food and service was excellent and I will definitely come back again. The only down point... More

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
