One of the best restaurants in Tirana. Wood construction in middle of a natural park. Free parking. One can have characteristic Albanian food that is very delicious but also international specialities. Live music in evening.

Sofra e Ariut is the best restaurant in Tirana. It is located in the woods not far from the town center. The food is delicious and the service perfect. They have also many birds and animals coming around the park freely. The food is also halal for muslims and they have a small masjid where you can pray.
