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!
