Restoran 'Obala': Possibly the best restaurant in Kosovo!
Although officially labeled as Pizzeria, "Obala" (the Coast) offers you menu packed-up with local and international specialties (where pizzas are, rightfully, on the margines).
Located in center of Gracanica, it is well-known throughout Kosovo and one of the favourite eating spots for a lot of internationals I know.
Obala is famous for it's MASSIVE (and again M-A-S-I-V-E) food portions. Trust me on this, and start with half portion of your favourite dish once you get there.
Favorite Dish: Pork ribs with kajmak (home-made milk cream) are specialty of the house, but you won't make a mistake even if you go for Smoked pork steam, Wienner Schnitzel or simply Cheese Crockets.
Furra Qerimi: Furra Qerimi - Even more burek!!!
Qerimi (no.1) is your average bakery but with excellent dough and pastries at offer.
It is a must for experienced burek eaters. If you prefer Belgrade burek to Sarajevo one, then don't miss-out Qerimi. Otherwise, you won't spot the difference. It's a thing, rich in grease and calories.
Favorite Dish: Burek pastry stuffed with cheese. And don't forget your yogurt.
Gjakova / Djakovica: Good takeaway
One of the most popular grill restaurants/takeways in the town. Place itself looks a bit dim and stuffy, so I'd recommend come-pick-go.
Local qebapa (cevapi) are quite different from those you'd have in other parts of former Yugoslavia. A bit more spicy and with different shape (small minced meat balls, like 'chufte'), still very delicious.
Favorite Dish: 10 cevapi (qebapa) pieces with salad , kajmak and the bun priced at roughly 2.5 euro

Bosna: The Home of Burek
It's by no means exaggeration to say that the word has spread throughout the Balkans about Pristina's bakery called "Bosnia" .
As far as I know, there are 4 such a bakeries in Pristina, the most popular ones (Bosnia 1 and Bosnia 2) being located nearby Gradic Pejton shopping-center and 50 meters from Grand Hotel (Mother Theresa Str.)
Speaking of the later one: enterior (metal chairs and small tables), surroundings (one of the busiest Pristina streets), toilet facilities (tiny bog shared with several cafes from the same building) et al. are surely not spectacular, but it is not what you've came here for, isn't it?
House offers traditional Bosnian burek (greasy pastry with cheese or meat filling) and range of sandwiches at really reasonable prices.
Favorite Dish: Cheese burek (or is it pita? :)) with jogurt will probably do it for a day. And that is, for less than 1.50 euro.

Rings: Great snacks and very good meals
This place makes the best hamburger I have had in Europe so far. They also make a lot of fancier dishes with spinach, chicken, salad, etc.
As luck would have it, they're not only one of the best places to eat, they're also open all night.
Qerimi1 Bakery: THE Bakery
This place is my husband's downfall! It is on the street between his lodging and the university.
Favorite Dish: The breads are delicious. Last time we bought the 3 breads from the shelf on the upper right in the top picture. The middle round one turned out to be a brioche-like one and was REALLY good.
Tiffany Restaurant: Lunch at Tiffany!
We asked my husband's colleague to take us to a restaurant that served Albanian food. So we ended up at Tiffany! There is no menu, but everyone knows what to order!
Favorite Dish: These are the starters. Pita with three tasty cheese spreads and the Balkan favorite "Shopska salata"! It was a very fresh and delicious way to begin!
Pristina Grand Hotel Cafe: The heart of it all ...
A place to sit and rest from your activities. What is nice is that there is a wide green buffer between the cafe and the street.
Favorite Dish: I've only had soft drinks here so can't speak for the food.
BTW if you are looking for a decent toilet use the restaurant one. The lobby toilets are the porcelain hole in the floor and not very nice.
Davidoff Restaurant & Pizzeria: Pizza with a view!
There are many restaurants in Pristina. [Although the Thai one just closed:(] This one is up the hill from the university.
This restaurant looks over Pristina, down Bill Clinton St. Unfortunately that view includes some polluting smokestacks. The view I chose includes a new apartment building.
One evening my husband and a colleague were eating here and saw what they thought was a lightening strike at the power plant followed by a fire. Turned out to be a bomb:(
Favorite Dish: The pizza was thin and tasty, if a bit oily for my preferences. In the Balkans there is this custom of putting "ketchup" on pizza. I put the word in quotes because the local varieties are much less salty that US ones and very delicious.
KFC: Real American Fried Chicken
KFC is a great place for Internationals.....they always play Country music during the day and evenings and they have karaoke on Saturday nights. They are the only place in town that don't rip you off on drinks.....they have "Happy Hour" Monday thru Friday from 5 pm til 8 pm with .50cent draft beer !!!!
Favorite Dish: The chicken strips are great with their homemade sauces. They also have gumbo like you would get in Louisiana. The fried chicken is awsome too!!!! They usually have some hot wings that are VERY spicy.
Large number of restuarnts in...
Large number of restuarnts in this city, the traditional once and the modren one...
When we are talking about the traditional once, we mean the Turkish resturants... with Kabab, Sojak and even with rice and Dolmah...
While when we are talking about the modern once, we are talking about the other face of the city, mainly we are talking about the resturants which are mainly working for the employess of the International organisations in Kosovo and the rich people of Kosovo.. and you will find a lot of them...
I would suggest some resturants in Pristina city that you should visit;
RIO resturant and it on the way to Germia, the park outside the twon.
Pinokio, in Dragodan
Favorite Dish: May be you shold try the fish in some areas of Kosovo, when you make sure that it is fresh fish... go ahead...
Best Mexican food in Kosovo, hands down! (take that for what you will) Honestly, perhaps not very authentic Mexican food but tasty nonetheless. The service is excellent and the prices are reasonable, especially when you consider the horse sized portions the restaurant serves. Places that pile on the food usually make me warry, substituting quantity for quality is rarely a trade off I will take, but Gressa is one of the few places where every dish serves up both.
Favorite Dish: Chicken Quesadillas
I have a lot of favourite...
I have a lot of favourite restaurants in Priatina:
* the Chinese Restaurant, next to the ABC Cinema (most of the foreigners knows that place, because I've had an impression that the locals doesn't like Chinese food...)
* the Italian Restaurant - La perla del Kosova, - yammy... I lived on the same street, Mio Dio, the food there is .. o, wish to be there now... The restaurant is on the street, behind the theatre, also popular place for the foreigners.
* Turkish Restaurant - infront of the Police Station 1
* Spanish restaurant - next to Elektrokosova.
..more are coming..
KFC: American food!!!!
KFC is short for Kosova Fried Chicken but it's close to the KFC that you know.
Favorite Dish: Hot wings and cold beer!!
