We got nice service but really expected better food because the restaurant advertises to be classified as excellent by Tripadvisor. The dishes were dry and not special at all. I wouldn´t go there again.

We were there in may, and the place doesn't look that fancy. But the service was very good and the owners very kind and had time to chat a bit with the guests. The food was very tasty made from fresh products

The restaurant is centrally located, the owners are very friendly and the prices are very fair (especialy considering the location and great marks on TripAdvisor). You can easily sample the different specialities of the region. The food is good.

The food was good and presented well. I ordered Qifqi which I’d never tried before and it was nice but didnt have much flavour. Perhaps that is the way the Albanian dish is supposed to be, but for my taste it needed something extra. We...More

Stumbled on this place thanks to trip advisor, and will never go to another restaurant in Gjirokaster again!! We have been here countless number of times and even at times drive all the way from the city we live, almost 3 hours away just to...More
