A wonderful experience!!

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... read more

The restaurant has a wonderful location overlooking the city of Tirana. We had a nice selection of grilled meat and a bottle of red wine.No need to say that it was extremely tasty and well served.It is hard to find somebody who speaks good English in Albania especially in the restaurants while trying to choose something from the menu.Our waiter...

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.

The atmosphere, the food, the service, the VIEW, all were excellent! It's a perfect experience for people who want everything, I mean the great food and the marvelous view of Tirana city in a combination with the great service and low prices! I'm from Italy and I will surely go there again with my family this time!

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...

Tirana can and is quite chaotic. One of the best ways to escape the loud noises of the city is Ballkoni i Dajtit. You can drive there, which I would recommend since the road is not paved all the way up and it takes to long or you can take the cable car (cost about 6 euro). Once there the... More

It was a nice experience overall. The atmosphere was warm and the food nicely cooked. We didn't really like the desserts though, but thumbs up anyways!

After an unforgettable trip and the amazing landscape views, a delicous food was waiting for me at Ballkoni i Dajtit. The servise was very good and the waiters were very social. What i really loved was the dessert in the end ;)
