“don't go there without children”

If you open the door and the place is crowded, don't get tricked on accepting the table in the basement! This is the place were the dining families kick out their kids to play. We accepted the table for 4 in the basement and it was a crucial mistake. We couldn't enjoy the Thanks Giving meal, we couldn't talk nor hear each other. A band of maybe 10 unsupervised kids were screaming, running, nearly crawling on our heads, tossing the empty water bottles and cans. No remarks or comments to the waiters helped at all, so we just rushed ourselves to swallow our food and got out. Don't take me wrong - we are the parents too and love kids, but what is too much is just TOO much. The food was very good, but our lunch was spoiled.

If you want to go there you should really try the hamburgers or the Mexican. Even though the dishes for dinner and lunch are amazing the offered breakfast is very good too until 11 Am the strawberry and whipped cream pancakes are worth a try :)

Qendra Stefan (The Stephen Center) is always a good respite for us Americans who live in Albania. Qendra Stefan has the best hamburgers in Albania. But, all the food is good, the wait staff is friendly, and the environment is clean and comfortable. They also have one of the best public wireless internet connections in Tirane. Compared to local eating establishments, Qendra Stefan is priced a bit higher. If you are on a tight budget I wouldn't recommend eating at Qendra Stefan all the time. But, if you are looking for good food and a nice place to relax and be with people, I highly recommend Qendra Stefan.

We were in Tirana for a meeting - by the way Stephen Center also has rooms that are modern and very clean. And affordable. Every morning we had breakfast in the Stephen Center Restaurant and it was a taste of home with waffles, omlets, french toast, and other things all cooked to perfection! We ate a few lunches and suppers there too and enjoyed the salads, hamburgers, and pizzas. Our friends raved about the Mexican food choices and the kids with us enjoyed the wide variety of milk shakes offered. They also have an extensive coffee menu. If you want a taste of American cuisine while outside of the USA, this is the place to go. The wait staff is friendly, helpful, fast, and bilingual.

A great atmosphere with basic western menu. I had a burger which was great. Free wi fi works well. Was excited when they made me french toast which was first time made after breakfast menu finished. I felt very special. Gold star for personal service!!
