A must on a hot summer night.

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

It's a great combination of quality of food, service and atmosphere. It's one of restaurants you should go while in Tirana. While enjoying the dishes live music accompanies you in those summer evenings. Keep up the excellent work and my compliments to Xheko family!

Been here with my husband and 5 month old baby. It was around 7 pm and the tarrace was empty, so we asked for a table by the balcony. The waiter told us that all the tables by the balcony were reserved from 7pm so we had to seat somewhere else. It sounded a little bit strange couse in Tirana... 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.
