Being there befor 8pm made our dinner a quiet one. The starter are all good but I prefer the eggplant/patellxhan. The seabass was superb and... More

An excellent choice if you're going with other couples for a nice date night or to impress a colleague or visitors. I was genuinely surprised at just how nice the dining room was, and the waiters, in their tradition dress, were great! Good food and drinks! Some traditional menu items as well as more routine Mediterranean dishes like ravioli, etc.... More

The location and service at this traditional Albanian restaurant in Tirana are excellent. Although a bit pricier than the average, it is a real treat and a hideaway from the bustling streets of Blloku.

Great traditonal food with amazing original taste. The service is very good and it's very interesting that the waiters are dressed in traditional outfits. There are served local products and dishes are prepared with local ingredients. The only thing that I would consider a problem is "high prices".
