We sat outside on a nice terrace. Menu really good for local meat and salad dishes. Very good value too. Friendly attentive staff. Baked aubergine dish was excellent. House Chardonnay wine was a bit ropey. Overall good value and quality.

Good and practical option for dinner for the Guest of the Mangalemi hotel. The restaurant offers traditional Albanians dishes, but also a few "international" dishes like spahetti. The menu is also available in english and it is highly recommended to read it well if you are not found of "lamb intestines skewers". I had aubergines and meat casserole and this... More

Prime location in Mangalemi hotel, close to the river, the promenade and the old town. Excellent service, very good value for money and very special local dishes which use local goat cheese and yogurts. Try the lamb cooked in yogurt. Book a table on the roof , where you can catch the sunset.

We had our dinner on their rooftop terrace and had a lovely view of Berat from there. The waiter who served us was very friendly. I ate the following: - Greek Salad - Oven baked eggplant with lamb - Creme Caramel Including a lemon soda, I paid around 8€ for that meal. Esspecially the main dish was excellent. Recommended.

After our visit to the fortress and no breakfast I was too hungry to take photos of our meals - what a shame! One is for sure: the restaurant is worth a visit, friendly service, great food!! I had an Aubergine & ground beef casserole and it was simply delish. Mangalemi is a hotel too, so if you decide to... More

For 2 days we've tried to eat in the restorant. We've called to reserve a table several times - it was all taken. Twice we've come to enter the absolutely empty place with two big dining halls, but received an answer that all the tables are taken. Weird and disappointing.

Our family was visiting Berat on a busy Sunday a few weeks ago. Thankfully we arrived before the big lunch crowd because a tour groups had booked up most of the tables! This was our fourth lunch at Mangalemi and each time we visit, I am more impressed with their service -- they are obviously experienced at serving an international... More

We were staying in their excellent hotel and ate lunch and dinner here. Great local food and wine at reasonable prices. Unusually for Albania, the service was very friendly and efficient. Great views over the old town from their terrace. Highly recommended.

We stayed here at the hotel and made a reservation for dinner. It was busy so I recommend you book if you want to come here. They have a lovely rooftop terrace which is covered. From the restaurant you have views over the town. The furniture is all basic wooden traditional and Albanian. Everything about this beautifully refurbished hotel is... More
