This is the oldest and best restaurant in Valbona.  Unlike most Albanian restaurants, we focus on being quiet and cozy - not that it can't be crazy at the height of summer.  Open from 1 May until 15 October, the restaurant has TWO (count them - two!) chefs.  One chef works at our dedicated outdoor fire and woodstove, specializing in traditional local food, using only the freshest of ingredients. However, since traditional food is meat, meat, cream, butter, fat and more meat, we also have an "import" chef in the kitchen, making more international fare with spices and vegetables and other 'exotic' fare.

open today
The Restaurant is open from 6:45 am until 12:00 pm (or whenever everyone goes to bed) during the season of 1 May until 15 October.  The rest of the year it is possible to make reservations for groups with due notice.

Price:

We offer a standard traditional menu and a changing menu of daily specials.  You can budget from 5-20 euros a day (although for 20 euros a day you'll have to eat like a king and drink yourself silly).
