Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

After being several days in Tirana, we discovered this nice and cozy place. They have very good choices, including vegetarian. The service was very good.

Looking for traditional Albanian food - this place was like walking into someone's house. The waiter was honest with us - they needed the table after 1.5 hours - which was fine, and I could see why because when we left there was a queue...of people waiting to come in. That said - we would have been even quicker if they had been a bit quicker taking the order and then bringing the bill. The food was good. I would say that the meat-eaters got exactly that - a plate of meat and not much else. This is definitely somewhere to order a few side dishes. I think the veggie option was the best bet - but I think that everywhere which is why I'm happy being veggie! They do take credit card but clearly prefer not to - there was a definite sense of - we prefer cash. Probably best to book before coming.More

Great place for traditional Albanian. I had lamb, stuffed eggplant and red wine on the terrace. The meat was so tender and tasty. Wonderful ambience in the rain under the terrace roof outside. Highly recommended if you're looking for a great atmosphere and great food...🌟-Teacher from Norway traveling alone -More

We had a place in the corner next to the door. Had to wait to long for our menu, drinks, diner and bill. We had the pie and the chicken from the oven. It was cold and dry. Very very disappointing. Instead of this the...food near the old bazar is much cheaper and so much better. A shame but the place is nice.More

This place had a real authentic feel and the weightor was so nice. It’s a MUST visit when in Tirana. It had so many traditional dishes to choose from as well as local beers and the weightor kindly helped me choose something very similar to...Tavë Kodi (Albanias national dish). The decor was super simple with wooden chairs and mitch match pictures hanging on the walls giving it plenty of character. They offered home made bread and even though it was raining when I went, they had seating outside which I can imagine would be super cute in the summer. There wasn’t too much of a wait for the food to arrive but I’d have happily waited because you could tell it had all been freshly made.More

I'd read the hype but was sorely disappointed. The food was just dumped on plates after being massively salted. Beer redeemed that a bit, eggplant OK, cottage cheese, and peppers acceptable. Also v expensive. Fourth meal in Albania and very much the poorest so far.....Sorry As for the live music. ...... Also saw another place, Oda garden, but thT runs with same food photos. Something odd going on.More

We had dinner here this evening. Although the staff were friendly, English speaking, this didn’t make up for the food. We wanted authentic Albanian cuisine, however what got was both bland, unimaginative & over priced for what it was. Overall a really disappointing dining experience.

Delicious traditional Albanian food according to the reviews it is a very busy restaurant, but I walked in for a late lunch around 4:30pm on a Sunday, and was seated immediately in a beautiful courtyard. I ordered the stuffed peppers and eggplant (was able to...order one portion of one of each) and they were both delicious. Servers were very friendly. Definitely recommend.More

It was much better. The...waitress who was very chatty & spoke excellent English (we had to return our beers as they tasted bad) and she sorted it really quickly.

Most restaurants in Tirana don't take cards. I come here often and you just get used to it. There are several banks with ATM's that charge no fee, but you need to shop around for them. LEKS and Euros only
