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.

I just had the most embarrassing and disappointing experience I could’ve had in a restaurant of this kind. I went there today with my family members visit ing from abroad including foreigners which wanted to try the Albanian delicacies. Unfortunately this restaurant has not only...lost his Standard in hospitality but also in attitude. We were accommodated outside and we were asked to choose any place we wanted , but after a long time waiting we were told that we would no longer be served on the outside because the waitress were too lazy to come down and serve us . The most ridiculous thing is that was quite a few people seating at tables in the same area where we were accommodated . They were eating and enjoying their food therefore was served just before us. For some odd reason after a long wait they refuse to service with the silly excuse that they do not serve in the lower part of the restaurant and they decided that on the spot and it was personal to us . We present ourselves very well are polite people, so being treated like trash is unacceptable. Not only they did not excuse themselves and try their best to accommodate us but this simply presumes we will just go in on inside so it will be easier for them and quicker to serve people. We are never going to go back again to this restaurant and we will make sure to spread the voice on social media between our friends and family to never visit and boycott this restaurant . Attitude is everything. Nice food in Tirana you can find a whey else . By the way if you are expecting to see the bear forget it . All they have is a rabbit and and duck . Luckily enough we found an other lovely restaurant a few miles down ..Thumbs down to Sofra e Ariut . Never again 👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎More
