    We have been staying in an apartment near Rruga Elbasanit, and a friend suggested us this wonderful place. It's located in the heart of Tirana, walking distance, in a nice location. So much surprised about the food quality and prices, so GREAT !!....We have been staying in Tirana for a week and we went every day to have lunch, we ordered food for dinner and we have tasted fresh pasta of the house, fresh Beer of the house named Svejk, Lakrori an albanian traditional dish, yummy !! New york steak, Ribs, and we enjoyed everything. Looking forward to come again in Tirana !!

    www.lulishte1maji.com

    Favorite Dish: Lakrori - an Albanian dish which was very very good, is a kind of pie , filled with spinach and cheese, or tomatoes and onions, but baked in a specific way in a wooden stove.. a very old tradition.
    Then pasta was incredibly great, better, much better than pasta in Italy, can you believe it ?
    Pork Ribs barbecue sauce, just wonderful, than, salads, soups , salmon ...like in US .

    The taste was great but the prices were incredible as well. Loved it !

    Mama Rossa and Cafe Flora and Shamrock: few places

    by littlebush Updated Jun 8, 2012

    Cafe Flora just does ice cream and drinks but its ok, its just off the main square down a main street. a OJ and ice cream cost 300lek.

    Mama Rossa is an italian place in the heart of the bars and cafes, around the area of Blloku, RR Ismail Qemali.

    Food is pretty good, 1400lek (£8.50) for a salad and a main of escolopes and a beer.

    Shamrock is obviously an 'irish' bar with a nice decor inside and i spent afew hours in here to avoid the downpour outside. food is good, service is good. i had club sandwich for 150lek, £1!
    tea and crissant, 220 lek, £1.50.

    This is a restaurant with a micro-brewery insite, brewing their own craft beers.
    The place is huge, there is a restaurant, a pub and a kids graden.
    The crafted beers are Helles(blonde), Marzen(red) and Weiss(weizen), probably the best beers in Albania.
    The food is Bavarese style and a lot of traditional foods. Live music from Thursday to Saturday.
    Very worthy to visit and an unforgetable experience.

    Favorite Dish: Mix sausages, spare ribs, pizzas etc.

  • Kaloj Cafe: Coffee to go

    by liverpool34 Written Jun 27, 2010

    It seems in Tirana most people sit and drink a small coffee for hours without moving - did I mention they often smoke a pack of cigs with an espresso?!! While this is a lovely pass-time, there is a spot near the student city where you can get takeaway coffee. They even have small paper cups for espresso and larger ones for american coffee...and even their chips come in paper cups! Wonderful for people on the move! Lots of local info as well!

    Favorite Dish: I liked a lot of their items, but I am happiest with the takeaway coffee.

    Villa Ambassador: Villa Ambassador

    by antistar Updated Jun 12, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Lonely Planet guide rates this restaurant so highly, that it insists its readers visit it as part of its "Tirana in Two Days" recommendation. It certainly sounds appealing, with "fantastic service" and "tasty Albanian dishes for carnivores and vegetarians alike", all set in the former East German embassy. The only problem that, like many of the Lonely Planet's West Balkans restaurant recommendations, it no longer exists. In fact, judging by the depth of trash and dust gathering outside the embassy, it hasn't been open in years. Unlike my LP guidebook which is dated 2006.

    So, to save yourself hours of your holiday wandering around the dark streets of nighttime Tirana looking for this famous restaurant: don't bother.

    Update: According to a note left on this page the restaurant has now been re-opened.

    Fresh Bio food in Tirana

    by suela Written Dec 24, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Very good restaurants all around Tirana - and outside it of course. Local recepies, but lots of Italian as well. Personally I must say i have eaten some of the best pasta and pizza in Tirana, instead of Rome or somewhere else italian.
    To mention some: Vinum, Artist, King's House, Era, Amour. Look for the "Tirana in your pocket" booklet at the International bookshop in Scanderbeg square and you will find detailed location for all these. Although food is excellent most of the time, prices are still rather cheap compared to EU countries.

    Kolonat.: It looks like mc sh!t but they have beer:O)

    Kolonat.

    Don´t be fooled by the look of this place.
    This is not mc donalds.
    It´s a fastfood place servind mainly burgers, but they are bigger and better than what you get at mc donalds and they serve beer there so adults come as clients too.

    Favorite Dish: I can recommend the skanderburger that is not made on your usual boring bun, but on a proper piece of bread and it´s also a proper piece of meat they use for it.

    Located behind a high wall, in an old villa, with relaxing and beautiful atmosphere, this is perhaps the best restaurant in Tirana. Order from the menu or take advantage of the chef's special offerings for that day. There is an extensive wine list. Try the stuffed mushrooms, the polenta, and anything made with salmon!

    Sofra e Ariut (The Bears' Table): Superb appetizers

    by blnsmith Updated Apr 23, 2009
    Peacock resting on an unaccompanied table

    One of the best restaurants in Tirana, the main course emphasize meats and fish. And while delicious, the appetizers are truly memorable. The menu offers so many that a meal could be made from them alone. Be sure to order the spinach souffle (no eggs) and the beans. The rest is up to you. The Tres Leches is a memorable dessert.

    There are dining areas both inside and outside and a small offering of animals that intrigue the children and keep them occupied.

    Favorite Dish: In addition to the appetizers, try the piglet or the shish kebab. Portions here are generous

    Casa di Pasta: Great selection of food.

    by tim07 Updated Oct 7, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Casa di Pasta restaurant is found in the Taiwan complex. It has a great selection of pasta dishes, pizzas, meat & salad dishes. There are tables both inside & outside. They give good views of the park & nearby boulevard.

    The service at the restaurant was very good. The waiters spoke some english & the menus were in albanian, italian & english. The price I paid for a good size pizza & half litre of foreign lager was 850 lek.

    The Opera bar & cafe is found next to the entrance of the opera at the Palace of Culture. The outside tables overlook Skanderbeg Square. It's a great place to sit with a drink both day & night & look out over the bustle of the square.

  • Greenhouse Restaurant: Chic Italian Dining

    by foxfarm Written Jun 14, 2008

    The restaurant complements a similarly names boutique hotel. There is indoor dining as well as al fresco dining. Food is italian cuisine made modern for some familair fares such as lasagna and traditional for some. Either way, food is great though portions may be much more smaller than comparably similarly priced dining places. Wait staff are attentive and ready to serve though only a few and slightly older ones can understand English

    Favorite Dish: Lasagna - rolled into a tower and bathed in a savoury but light sauce
    Risotto Fruta di Mer - traditional risotto with tender squid, cute juicy clams and succulent mussels, and full flavored whole shrimp
