“Fish soup?”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2013 via mobile

Even after putting lots of lemon, pepper and salt into this green/brown fluid, there was no taste, certainly no taste and no sign of fish. My wife thinks she maybe saw a tiny piece of carrot in there somewhere. The waiter smiled like Manuel in Fawlty towers, and knew almost as much english. The beer was nice, though. The white wine was drinkable.

“Terrible food, slow and sloppy service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2013

The food is generic charter place food. The "risotto" was boiled rice with shrimps and the "meatballs" was a burgerish contraption. The fries were cold and soggy as old socks. The service was slow and even with 5 people working with 5 tables we got our food 10 minutes apart. Go somewhere else.

“good food, excellent price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2013

I saw the reviews on TA and decided to give it a try, we were not disappointed. it looked friendly and we didnt have to wait for a table. the atmosphere was relaxed, usual paper tablecloths but it was ok. didnt have to wait much for our food, a nice seafood risotto and some pork and chicken skewers, all of them were good. drinks and food were cheap, service was fast and even if it was not the most remarkable restaurant where we've eaten in Saranda, I cant complain! it's centrally located and they also offered us some watermelon when we asked for our bill. I'd go back!

“Big means big”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2012

When you're asked 'do you want a big beer' you don't normally expect them to come back with a 2 pint glass ! Apart from that, nice food with some accessible Albanian dishes....although the soup with lambs head was a touch too far for me !

“the best”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2012

restaurant we went to most others have a limited menu mainly pizzas or pasta and little else but the Viljani as a much more varied menu with some traditional Albanian food with very good service. Its hard to get a table but worth waiting for
