    Butrint Restaurant (Sarande)

    by SirRichard Written Sep 7, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After walking the touristic area up and down I found this cute local restaurant, one of the few that wasn't turned into a cafeteria or pizzeria. It had a nice terrace with palm trees and the food was quite home made and cheap.

    Favorite Dish: I had a vegetable soup and a fresh grilled fish, quite tasty, though not very ellaborated.
    Tirana beer and coffee to drink.
    I payed 5 euros for the whole lunch.

    no mc donalds in albania yet.

    by cachaseiro Written Oct 7, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    when i first saw it i flinched and though:
    aaargh, the arches of evil have arrived in albania.
    then i just realised that it was an albanian copy.
    quite funny i think.
    they really try to make it look like a real mc donalds, so the food probaply makes you fat there just like at the original place.
    better go and eat elsewhere.

    mc albania.

    various: Italian style cafe society

    by sourbugger Updated Feb 13, 2005

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the most surprising things I found when visting Albania was the emergence of an embyonic cafe society.

    Due to the interchange of people (and TV) with Italy, the Italian influence on the decor and menus is profound.

    One still has to check on prices before drinking/eating, but we generally found owners to be honest - mainly because they seemed so unused to non-Albanian frequenting their establishments !

    I also notice that many cafes used plastic purple garden chairs. I suspect that some enterprising individual bought up a massive job lot of them a few years back and made a nice fat profit selling them on.

    Favorite Dish: Beer..coffee..more beer etc

    (avoiding Absinthe, I'm mad enough already by being here!)

    Emblema restaurant: Don't miss the lovely goat!

    by AlbaniaLover Updated Oct 4, 2006

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is one of my favorite places that we ate in Tirana. Lovely fresh and traditional dishes. You can either sit inside or sit in the little candle lit court yard at the front. Lots of locals seem to eat here and it was busy every time we visited.

    Favorite Dish: The fresh meat and salads.

    Juvenilja: Great food

    by AlbaniaLover Updated Oct 4, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is quite a posh place to have something to eat or just sit in the garden and have a drink. There is a childrens play area in the gardens. Set back from the madness of the city centre in a nice quiet setting.

    Favorite Dish: Pizza, also has traditional food.

    Here three of us ate: three pizza's, one soft drink and two beers for 3000 Lek (£15 sterling OR $30 USD)

    Likursi Castle: Amazing views of coast line

    by AlbaniaLover Updated Oct 4, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Up above the town of Saranda you have great views of the coast and also of Corfu. This is a really well done restaurant and bar with lots of different areas and different outside bars. In the evening there was live music being played, it was just starting to get busy when we were there about 7.30/8.

    Favorite Dish: We only drunk here again but had a look at the menu and have quite a choice. If the food is as good as the place looks im sure its great!

    Favorite Dish: coffee, beer or the local water (uji) Tepelene. i also liked ivi limon

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's a copy of McDonalds really. Burgers and chips, pizza and ice creams. Seemed quite busy with young locals and adults with children. Dont think i would be visiting again! You can get local fast food cheaper and alot nicer!

    Favorite Dish: Pizza was better than the burgers.

    by AlbaniaLover Updated Oct 4, 2006

    Set on the main promenade in Saranda with a lovely large roof terrace overlooking the sea. We went here twice each night there was live music playing and people getting up and dancing. It was very busy with all the albanians on holiday here. It has a nice outdoor pizza oven making proper pizza's. You can also order take any food from here.

    Favorite Dish: very large pizza's!

    Restaurant at Syri i Kalter: Lovely cool setting

    by AlbaniaLover Updated Aug 19, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Syri i Kalter is inland from Saranda. In english it means blue eye, you have to pay to visit as it is a local attraction but i think it is worth a visit. The restaurant is set in the grounds surrounded by a fast flowing VERY cold river, set under trees it is lovely to sit here on a boiling hot day. We only had a drink here but the food that we saw people looked good and fresh.

    Favorite Dish: Looked like fresh meat and salads here. Also ice creams, beers and soft drinks.

    Pitet e Engjejve: The BEST place in Tirana.

    by AlbaniaLover Updated Oct 4, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Although it looks like nothing special, just a normal restaurant with eating areas in and outdoors this place is the best. You can eat here cheaply and have the best food. All kinds of grilled meats and salads to gyros. Everything you could want and plenty of it in big plate fulls. The menu is also in english. They do take away too.

    Favorite Dish: Mixed grill (you need at least 3 people to be able to finish it.
