Bea's is a local fast food chain with two restaurants in Prizren. It seems to be frequented mainly by the younger crowd.
We once chose their riverside restaurant for a quick lunch break and some people watching. They have some tables right at the river bank from where both the Sinan Pasha Mosque and the bridges can be seen.
The menu offers a selection of toasts, burgers and pizza slices. I decided for a toast with salad for 2,20 Euro. It was nothing special, but still it was edible. The main reason why we chose the place was its location right at the riverside.
Restaurant Alhambra used to be called Te Syla; both names still seem to be well known among the local people. It is one of the traditional Balkan riverside restaurants, which is specialised in local grilled meat dishes.
They have s few outside tables right by the river bank as well as next to the restaurant on the other side of the street..
As main dish I chose 6 Qebapa, which are grilled, spiced mince sausages. They usually have to be ordered per piece (Price:0,30 Euro/piece). Apart from that I opted for a mixed salad (1,30 Euro) and a local Peja beer (1,00 Euro).
Our meals were yummy and filling. Due to its location at the river bank, the restaurant has a relaxed atmosphere and is also perfect for watching the world go by.
On our first evening in Prizren we had dinner on the outdoor terrace of the Restaurant Besimi Beska. It is a family run Kosovar restaurant, which we liked a lot so that we even came back for a second visit on our last evening.
The menu offers the full range of local grilled meat dishes from Qebap and Qyfte to Pleskavice. Several salads are available as well.
At our first visit I ordered Pleskavice (3,00 Euro), a mixed salad (1,50 Euro) and a local Peja beer (1,00 Euro). Pleskavice is a Balkan style minced meat steak. At our second visit I opted for the Bombice (3,00 Euro), which was minced meat with cheese. All dishes came with free local bread and some orange slices.
Everything was very tasty and we really liked the place due to its central location, the yummy meals and the friendliness of the staff. In contrast to many other places, this restaurant was always busy with all kinds of people.
There are lots of good restaurants and bars (don't forget the curfew!) around town. The food has lots of Turkish influences. I remember in particular the delicious flat breads and pizzas. A good Italian place, frequented by the internationals is Trattoria Due Fratelli.
On Shadervan Square, the Shehzade restaurant is only small, but serves the best kofte (qyfte in Albanian, meatballs) this side of Istanbul. owned by Prizreni Turks, the waiters and chefs are very friendly and helpful when it comes to their city and their food, so if you can speak a smattering of Turkish, make their day and surprise them!
Favorite Dish: Kofte and kebabs...5 kofte with bread and salad and a drink costs very few Euros, a very filling and delicious lunch.
