But pay Attention to the eggplants of you are vegan mama didn't prepare for you because they have eggs inside probably. In Albania you have to Say that you don't It cheese/gheese and also eggs or they think you are vegetarian.

Pros: Sarma, Baked vegetables, Beans gjigandes

Das Essen ist nicht schlecht, aber im Verlauf des Abends werden immer noch mehr Gäste reingequetscht und das Personal ist zunehmend überfordert. Damit wird der Service sehr langsam.

So hospitable!

Super friendly staff! Staff new vegan options and I got stuffed eggplant and pepper without the dairy sauce. The guy brought us a clove non alcoholic liquor, pickled vegetables, dessert and a shot of raki (not on the hill). My partner got the moussaka and rice balls (vegetarian). 10/10 would recommend for their fun and kindness

Pros: Vegan aware, Free food and drinks , Price

Cons: I’ve had better stuffed peppers

Awesome food and love for dogs

I wish I could give six stars for this place. It felt like the first time I had more than two choices as a vegan and the family knew exactly how to cater to my needs. I don’t need to tell you how delicious the food is (stuffed eggplant, stuffed pepper, stuffed wineleaves and baked beans for me, spinach/cheese pie for my omni bf), as you can read that in the other comments.

What really impressed me is that they didn’t just cater to human needs.. when we finished our food, a street dog showed up and the whole family greeted it and told the youngest sibling to get dog food and they put out water and everything. Almost like seeing an old friend. The host loves dogs and they take care of them. Thank you so much, faleminderit 🧡

Pros: More vegan options than any other place

Good food

We went here for lunch. They had several vegetarian dishes (they asked if you eat vegetarian or not), no vegan options but possible to ask for it. Food is good, kind people.

Pros: Good food, Quick

Cons: You have to ask specifically for vegan food

Very delicious

The staff was very kind, but the woman doesn’t understand us so good, her younger colleague who speaks very good english came later. But I think in summer it works better! The food was very good and the atmosphere is amazing.

Super friendly and supporting staff

This restaurant is a nice place if you want to enjoy very traditional Albanian atmosphere. The staff is super lovely and helpful if you want to have vegan food. We had some nice antipasti, vegetable and rice balls, potatoes, stuffed aubergine and pepper.

Excellent vegan and vegetarian food

Even if it is true that they also serve meat, I should say that almost 95% of the menu is vegetarian. Veggie mussaka was great! Also the vegetarian balls. Service was great. Run by a very nice family. Hospitality 100%

Pros: Muchas opciones veganas, Muy buenos precios

Tasty food and the best hospitality in Albania!

We walked past this restaurant on our way to see the ancient aqueduct (highly recommend this) and the owner, seeing we were low on water, kindly offered to fill up our bottle. We casually inquired about the food and he told us most of what was on the menu was actually vegetarian, such as the moussaka and two dishes traditional to this town: a corn and spinach pie and fried 'qifqi' rice balls (like arancini) as well as some vegan options. So we returned from our short hike and ordered the vegan bean stew, stuffed eggplant, and sarma (rice stuffed vine leaves). Roasted potatoes and vegetables, fries and salads were also available on the menu. The generous owner gave us pickled vegetables to go with his homemade raki (one of the best grape rakis I've ever had) and we had a unique and delicious clove liqueur with a fruit platter for dessert.

Tasty food and exceptional service in this beautiful historic town!
