I have described in my hotel tip how to arrive to “Hotel, bar, restaurant, piceri Belvedere”. Once in the restaurant, we arrived in a large room rather noisy that seemed to be a place for quick snacks. A waiter showed us that we should take the staircase on the left and go to an upper room that was a kind of wide balcony overhanging the noisy room. There were half a dozen tables in a very cozy setting. The waiter spoke only German. We ordered our meals, using part Albanian, part German … and had an excellent meal, very typical and inexpensive.
We always choose meals that the two of us will share, which allow to taste twice more different meals! I have given a photo of the main meals under “local customs”.
We had the following meals:
Xhaxhik, 100 lek
Tave Dheu, 200 lek.
Tru viçi me garniture, 550 lek
Qofte me garniture, 450 lek
Vere shlepie (wine ), 600 lek
Two Raki, 50 lek each
The bill was finally 2100 lek ie 17 euros or 24.5$, which we found very reasonable, given what we had ordered.

restaurant panorama: food from heaven
There it was... a large-ish building on two floors, half of it hosting this restaurant. It doesn't look very special at all, except for the balcony overlooking the bazaar - but we found it promising, in particular because it was the only restaurant we found that did nto specialize on pizza (a typical balcan fixation).
Favorite Dish: I had a tave dheu (in the photo) - definitely heavy but possibly the most delicious food I tasted in Albania. My husband had pattie, very similar to greek Pasticio, and found it great, too. With garlic bread, a bottle of water and coke we paid 750 leks, which is about 6 euros.
