This restaurant is a cozy place where you have the chance to experience some traditional Albanian specialties. Comfortable, a nice outdoor area and waiters in traditional dress create a special traditional atmosphere.

I have always been lucky enough to be treated to this restaurant on visits to the country and so can't comment on the pricing the food is always top calibre and the staff are friendly. The red wine in Albania is superb. I will be going back I hope.

If you are a foreigner, stay away from this overpriced tourist trap. They will suggest the traditional Albanian menu, serve you a few nibbles and charge you twice the price of a plentiful meal in any similar restaurant in Tirana. But what can you expect from a restaurant that keeps two stressed out bears in a small cage for the... More

The place is nice made of wood and during spring and summer the tables in the garden are very pleasant to dinner. The waiters are polite and... More

A unique restaurant which caters to a very varied audience. For me it is best when you can sit in the gardens and enjoy the greenery and the domesticated birds which wander around (peacocks, ducks etc.). The bear enclosure may not be to everyone's taste though although it is a reasonable size with a pool in the middle. You can... More
