A true pearl in Tirana. We did not reserve a table and when walking by the restaurant we were not sure whether we would have been able to get one. Luckily we did! To our surprise there was no menu but the waiter made sure to describe in detail what was on the menu that evening. We chose some salad,... More

Get there to early to grab a window seat to watch the world go by. Small restaurant, outstanding waiter service and very tasty food. No menu just recommendations from the waiter/chef. Sharing salad to start with truffle dressing was to die for. Definately recommend

We had a great late lunch/ early dinner at Otium. Wonderful service, extremely friendly staff and absolutely amazing tastes. Surprising combinations, beautifully presented. Absolute must when you love food and want to have a taste of culinary Tirana. Best meal we had in 1,5 month of traveling so far. Highly recommended!

This place is quite different from the standard albano-italian restaurants that abound in the neighborhood.

Went in for dinner and was initially a little nervous about ordering with no menus and no wine list. But the waiter was excellent - definitely knew his stuff to advise on today's menu and wines- was patient and friendly. Wine and food were both very good and thought the price was actually very reasonable considering the high quality of... More

My family brought me here for my birthday. I have lived in Tirana for more than 15 years. This is by far one of the best meals I have had in Tirana. Everything was done to perfection and the filet mignon was one of the best meats I have had here. The presentation was also beautiful.
