I have been several times at this restaurant. The cooking is great, service wonderful and during summer in the terrace very nice live music. A place I recommend and would go back there with pleasure.

The restaurant is at the top of the hotel and the atmosphere is pleasant. The service was ok, not what it is expected for a roof restaurant in such a hotel though. The food was ok, nothing impressive but not bad. What was most disappointing was the view.

This place has an amazing terrace, every evening live music, great dishes (international and Albanian) and good wines. Is my favourite for a nice dinner or to enjoy wine & appetizers.

Good food and very special location at this rooftop restaurant with a spectacular view on Tirana. especially on hot summer evenings this is a perfect place with a nice breeze, some live music, and Italian or traditional Albanian cuisine.

I was invited to this restaurant and part of a large group. The food was absolutely delicious and the staff excellent. The decor is nice and a very nice experience sitting outside .. without really being outside. Will be back next time I visit Tirana.

It's a great combination of quality of food, service and atmosphere. It's one of restaurants you should go while in Tirana. While enjoying the dishes live music accompanies you in those summer evenings. Keep up the excellent work and my compliments to Xheko family!
