However, is worth going there especially as the atmosphere is extremely... More

This restaurant has many positives - it was really nice to having lunch here. The place has a good atmosphere, service is good. The garden, where u can find many animals has a spirit.

I've been at this restaurant a few times for different occasions. It is a great place, suitable to visit in any kind of company. The forest and animals are of great interest for little kids, the atmosphere outside and inside is very nice, and it makes you leave with a good impression. The food is nice, but a bit pricey,...

Located in the heart of tirana's main park, Sofra is a great place to spend a meal with family or friends. In the veranda the view is scenic, you are in the middle of green, the air is pure and cleam. Service is friendly and polite. Waiters wear traditional Albanian costumes something very nice. You also get the chance to... More

Its worth it to find time to review this place. The atmosphere is enchanting in the forest side. With some animals and pour bears i would say. The food is average taste with spicy prices but as the surrounding was great it was a nice experience.
