“Very nice new Mediterranean/Greek restaurant in Tirana”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

An old friend of mine recommended we try this new place that had opened recently. It was a very nice experience overall. The food was excellent, the location and atmosphere almost perfect. We ordered some salmon tartare/carpaccio, and young pork fillet which were really nice. The Italian red wine selection was excellent, and we picked one that did not regret. Desert was also unique, I got a nice chocolate kind of a pie with very rich delicious chocolate with the crusting made with almonds and hazelnuts. The only thing I'm withholding 5 from was that some items on the menu were not available like tuna tartare that I asked for. Great experience overall and will definitely go back.

“Quality food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant was recommended by the Hotel and as it was close thought we would try it. So pleased we did. The service was attentive and professional. There is a good selection of wine and the food (French) was very good. Well cooked, full of flavor and fresh. We ate through the menu with a bottle of red wine total cost of the meal 25 euros each. Here on business will definitely be heading back before I leave. Nice atmosphere too.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

Arrived at our hotel, first time visiting Tirana, so asked for recommendations of restaurants nearby. Was given a card for the Gourmet restaurant, checked Tripadvisor but no recommendations for it. The restaurant was quite quiet but looked ok from the outside, so we decided to venture in, and was very glad to have done so.

Ordered starter and main course, and received a lovely amuse bouche of soup in an espresso cup, and smoked salmon. All the food was excellent, with particular mention for the dessert - chocolate soufflé with amazing vanilla ice cream. All that plus a bottle of sauvignon blanc for $25 each. Tremendous value.

Will definitely be going back before we leave here.
