We had lunch here with a group of 10 people. English is spoken and menus are offered in English too. The views are terrific, many tables are by the windows, but large parties will end up further away from the windows. Still a great view...More

We were a company of 4 including a baby. We were sitted on a table. The staff was friendly and the view amazing even though atmosphere not so clear. Food was excellent. Beers could have been colder. Will visit again if in the area.

The terrace offers fantastic views over Tirana. Tried the meatballs in a spicy sauce. Tasty. Less than 10 € with a glass of white wine, a large bottle of water and an espresso coffee.

This restaurant is very unique. To reach it, a cable cart will take you high in the mountains with spectacular views. Once there, pick a table close the expansive windows and enjoy a good selection of dishes. Ask for a good Albanian red wine.

Wonderful time and amazing view at the restaurant. The food was delicious and nice big portions also. Vinny is the meat chef and was so sweet to us as we had met him on the bus before we arrived. He even gave us free dessert!...More

There is a fairly new Dopplemeyer lift, about four kilometres long, that takes you to a fantastic height above the city. At the end is a funky modern hotel and this great restaurant, The Balcony, literally hanging out over the top edge of the mountain....More
