Traditional food that tasted AMAZING.

“Typically Albanian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

It's long time im listening people going in Shkodra and mentioning about Tradita as the only place where u can eat good food and spent nice time. I went last September and everything was like i was told. A very typical north Albania building and old one, inside where exposed old house ornaments and dresses, lovely to see.
The food was very good, i was not expecting to have so many varieties of starters and especially very fresh & well cooked. The service was not so good, far worse than the food and atmosphere.
Quality/price is a wise place.

“Maybe the best in Albania”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

The restaurant offers traditional Albanian items. I cannot strongly enough recommend the “Albanian Sampler” menu from their restaurant. Add the homemade house wine to the Sampler menu and you have the finest meal available.

“Nice place, poor staff and 'nothing special' food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

Although the place looks quite nice both inside and outside it`s in fact nothing special. Prices here are about 30% higher then in other restaurants in Shkodra and the food and service definitely is not the reason to pay more.
We asked for english menu but unfortunately they have only albanian version. So we asked waiter what can he recommend and he replied with one option and info that we can check rest in the menu. The service was slow, and the food we got was really nothing special - I recommend you to choose any of the restaurant in the center of Shkodra (near the Rozafa hotel and Mosque) and it will be definitely a better choice.

“Drinks, not food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Avoid eating here...looks enticing, but it isnt. Service is slow, food is expensive and not prepared by a trained chef. Do go for drinks, and enjoy the atmosphere and collection of costumes and photos...just beware of the food.
