A bit of a folly!

Slightly odd fake castle building and interior. The best tables are probably on the upstairs balcony. The salads we had as starters were very well presented and the house red was very drinkable. I wasn't so impressed by the main meals but we only tried the traditional Albanian not the pizzas. My... read more

Lunch or dinner in a castle! The grounds are absolutely beautiful complete with rich historical details, horses on property, and indoor and outdoor seating. This is one of my favorite restaurants to visit. Wait staff speaks English and menu is massive! Do yourself a favor and order the traditional dish called qofta! We will come back again and again! Great... More

Juvenilja Restaurant I thoroughly recommend an excellent restaurant called Juvenilja, where I was taken on my last evening by my Tour Director, Mr Derek Crane in Tirana where attention to detail is paramount. It is an extremely popular and sought after restaurant where I enjoyed a meal of an exceptionally high standard. The restaurant itself is set next to beautiful... More

This restaurant is a very good option in bloku. Always with fresh sea food. The service is good, and the menu is also writen in english. You could orderna pizza, a soup, or fish. The prices are fair. But the wifi never works.

It's a quiet environment, perfect for all kinds of ages. The food is delicious, pizzas are amazing. I went there with my friends for my birthday, and we had a wonderful time. It's a fancy restaurant, but the very affordable kind of fancy.

I was taken here by colleagues and went back a second night on my own. The atmosphere is good, the menu caters to all tastes and the food itself very good. The serving staff are friendly, speak good English and give good service. One of the guys is the ultimate salesman, so be careful you don't end up ordering more... More

To be honest, at first glance it doesn’t look like much both from the outside and inside. Once you are seated though it all falls nicely into place. This restaurant was recommended to me by one of my friends and as always my mother and I wanted to try something different and reasonably priced. We got all that and much... More

One of the oldest and traditional restaurants in Tirana. A fairly extensive menu including Italian and Albanian dishes. Pizzas are very good. Mixed grill plates are very generous in quantity but meats were overcooked. House wines were very good and Theresa's no need to order an expensive one. Service was excellent and the atmosphere charming. Excellent location.
