Awesome food, great service and good prices. We all enjoyed a pretty good lunch in Gjirokastra. I recommend the kombinim dish to taste several Albanian meals, and the yellow cheese grilled with slices of tomatoes and peppers. I hope you enjoy as much as we...More

I liked very much the location and the feeling that you are in a traditional restaurant not something adapted for tourists... The food is good, prices also.

Stopped at Kujtimi after reading many Trip Advisor reviews. It didn’t disappoint. Although it was raining and we had to wait about 30 minutes for a table inside, we were treated warmly by the owners and they did everything they could to make sure we...More

I had a selection of traditional Albanian food. I've been in Albania for a week so I have tried quite few samples. This was the worse so far. No beer on tap. Only bottles. Nice beer garden, the service was OK.

We got nice service but really expected better food because the restaurant advertises to be classified as excellent by Tripadvisor. The dishes were dry and not special at all. I wouldn´t go there again.

We were there in may, and the place doesn't look that fancy. But the service was very good and the owners very kind and had time to chat a bit with the guests. The food was very tasty made from fresh products

Like others reviewing before me, we had come here as it had such good reviews. This was the only place in Albania that we didn't get a warm welcome! It was a pleasant, warm evening, and it was already busy with just 2 tables near...More

This restaurant came highly recommended on TripAdvisor, so we were eager to try it out. Honestly – we just didn’t get it. We tried a number of dishes – meatballs, rice balls, salad, etc. – and all of it just tasted either weird or completely...More
