The setting is great, nice and quite, but the food was so poor. The service was good too but again, what we ordered was so different from what we were served...

the two times I was on the summer terrace I was stunned by the performance and the atmosphere created by some young performing talents. I do think that combined with the architecture is made the time spend there worth while. The cuisine I would say is good as expected given the reputation.

The reastaurant is worth coming and spending a good evening there. The resto offers a wide range of dishes of Italian and Mediterranian cuisines as well as Albanese one. You should taste the starters and main dishes of the Albanese kitchen, like eggplant with walnuts, albanese pies, country salad, lamb alla Chef, lamb in youghourt etc. Sea food is delicious.... More

This is regarded as one of the best Tirana restaurants. Food is very good even though I did not like the way it was served (decorations that made dishes look too touristic). Service was efficient and very professional. Wine list was adequate. Not a cheap place for local standards but a safe choice especially for business meal.

What makes Carlsberg special is its atmosphere..European style decorated with a full view kitchen and pool canals..the music is nice and smooth. the assistants and the waiters are more than lovely and friendly..excellent food and coctails..A little more expensive than the other restaurants in Tirana but worth every penny..
