After a lovely cable car trip to Mt. Dajit, we stopped in the Ballkoni Dajtit restaurant for lunch. Although it was a busy Sunday afternoon in the restaurant, service was prompt, friendly and efficient, and our lunch was wonderful. We had salad, roast lamb and potatoes, and all were delicious and reasonably priced. It was a very enjoyable way to end our trip up the mountain, with a wonderful view while enjoying great food. Highly recommended.

After an exciting and relaxing day on Dajtit mountain, we decided to dine here before getting back to the city (to be right on time for Euro-2012 semifinal). It was quite early (around 7pm), so the restaurant was almost empty (while we were impressed by the spaces and number of tables). Even if the day was sunny and hot but we couldn't lose a chance to have dinner over the world - we've chosen a shadowed place on the terrace, though it was sultry and we couldn't really enjoy the view (which must be breath-taking).
The service exceeds any expectations (after a certain restaurant experience in Tirana) - the waiter was very attentive, helpful and friendly. The salads were enormous (one would be enough for two), and grilled meat variety was simply divine. And all this pleasure for 15 euros!!!
