Delicious food & good service

Upon entering I wondered if such a large restaurant could have good service and good food and I was happy to say yes to both. The inside was decorated with good taste, including plants and live birds. Our service was polite and quick. Good food was had by all. The plates were presented with fresh... read more

We knew almost nothing about Kosovo local dishes but the staff were really helpful and showed us the various constituents so we could choose. The food was delicious, the portions almost too generous and the staff attentive to our every need (and question). Complementary fruit to finish which was an unexpected bonus. The cost was very reasonable to us as... More

A whole crowd of us from a conference all piled into this restaurant even though we had separated out into groups. Undaunted by this influx, the restaurant produced excellent meals very efficiently. Good wine, coffee on the house, and slices of fresh orange to finish. For westerners very cheap but probably beyond the range of many locals.

On my tour through Albania and its neighbors I also came to Prizren. I enjoyed the pedestrian area along the river, the mosque, the castle and the museum of the League of Prizren which shows how the Albanians fought for a nation of their own and were not heard in Berlin in 1878. The history of Albanians is connected. Walking... More

Excellent service and delicious food. The Flata bread and the pepper and cheese dip was decadent. Everything was made from scratch. We were so full yet we could not stop eating. Thank you for a wonderful lunch.

We came as a group of five with a paper of several traditional dishes from Kosovo a guy in our hostel wrote down for us to try. We just gave the paper to the waiter and he said he could make a plate with samples of all of it for us to try. That was very nice of him. Also,... More

Nestled in amongst other similar restaurants the Besimi Beska is a real gem. Recommended by a tour guide and I can see why. The menu is very much focused on local cuisine and whilst you will probably see a tourist or two it really gets crowded with locals very quickly (which says it all really!) On the evening I was...
