The setting here is very nice for a hot summer night and the live music plays very discretely. The food is quite good, especially if you like meat, although the salads are nice too. Service leaves a lot to be desired, but perhaps it is just this one waiter, because others seemed more competent and... read more

Excellent location at the terrasse on 5th floor. Very familiar atmosphere with live music and very competitive prices. Tasty draft beer from Carlsberg. Specially the meat is very tasty and freshly made by the owner/chef. Minimum 5 stars.

The environment is perfect a warm evening. View of Dajti mountain and part of the city. Food is average but if you order a selection of starter they are good and plenty so wait to order more until you have finished all. Good Amarone wine.

Food was nice but nothing spectacular, also pretty expensive. Atmosphere is what it counts! Will come again, but to have a drink.
