Tradita Geg & Tosk

Tradita Geg & Tosk Hotel and Restaurant, is located in Shkodra city. It is an old traditional house dating 1694, a nice traditional place, surrounded by an ethnography which Mr. Gjon Dukgilaj successfully transformed into a restaurant and hotel. Built with typical elements such as stones and wood, the interior is furnished, decorated with the old authentic objects and traditional costumes from the area. Seasonally the owner transforms the complex into a museum in order for the clients to enjoy the Albanian culture atmosphere.

A great place with a beautiful building and a lovely yard. The food was very nice and different from other places. The show was rather simple and not impressive but the entire evening was lovely there.

Camping Legjenda Bar-Restaurant

Our restaurant-pizzeria Legjenda, with over 10 years of experience in the restaurant business, is close to the campsite and is open to the public all year round. The dining room, whose walls are painted with frescoes, is cooled with air-condition. Just at the entrance to the restaurant you will find a Scutarian garden-style of 6,000 square meters: the perfect place to spend pleasant hours in the green, tasting excellent dishes of traditional local cuisine, without renouncing the real Italian pizza cooked in a wood-fired oven, along with a very good rotisserie and other specialties; otherwise you can use a griddle on a charcoal grill and enjoy the day with your friends. The bar is always at your disposal.

From the road you wouldn't expect it but when you arrive in the Gardens you start enjoying your meal. In a beautiful surrounding you can order a lovely meal. The service is very friendly. If the weather is less it could get a bit crowdy in the dining room.

Bar Restaurant Shqiponja

Bar, Restaurant, Pizzeria, breakfast and brunch. Next to the castle of Rozafa, by the river. Large outdoor and indoor area. With kids play ground and minizoo with birds and resqued animals.

Reviewed By Lucy B - London, United Kingdom

The restaurant exhibits wild animals in very confined cages. One of them was even injured. They looked depressed and without any joy and love. We got very sad and angry from that the way how they treat the animals. On lookers were quite shocked. All of the experience from the restaurant dissapeared. We will never go back and I would not recommend anyone tp visit unless you want to see how not to treat animals.

Amazing Terrace with a marvelous view and very very relaxing place. One thing Shkodra citizens are very calm and relaxing they seem to have no stress and also most of the travel by bicycle. The San Francisco offers variety of drinks and very friendly staff.

We had one excellent meal at this establishment. Then when ordering a traditional meal two days in advance we wee served the most awful cold unpleasant meal. It appears that at our group who had entered before us was served our preordered food.

Cliche

Reviewed By SouthwoodTruck - Jamesville, United States

Actually stopped over for desserts late in the evening, and it was all worth it. I think you can order anything from the menu and be pleasantly surprised and impressed. The portions are actually large so think well if you are there after a big dinner. Next time I would split a dessert. Visit and enjoy the place. Great service.

Bar Restorant Illyria Shkoder

Reviewed By BartHendrikJan

One of the best restaurant experiences must be this one. First of all the location is worth to see it. It has some interesting hidden stories.
Together with another couple we ordered 4 main dishes and two salads as side-dish. Before the actual dinner we've got some local corn-bread, what is a typical speciality.
As I ordered a sea fish, the waiter wanted to clean my fish from the inside when we asked him. The dishes were nice decorated, but it was good that we ordered also a salad as this was poor served with it.
Live music is provided with local songs.
The service is amazing and very professional, well speaking English waiters.
Unfortunately this place is not adapted for wheelchairs.
Culture and gastronomic in one! A must do/see.
Ps: We finished the evening with a 55,- euro bill for 4 people, drinks included.

Arti'Zanave

Here at Arti' Zanave you will try traditional Albania dishes made with locally sourced vegetables. Our main focus is supporting woman in Albania and helping those less able to find jobs. Our restaurants profits go towards the woman centres. They often help in the restaurant, either serving customers or hand-crafting jewellery, scarfs, bags and garments which you can purchase right here! And of course all proceeds go to the woman centre.

Located in nice quiet place in Gjuhadol, main pedestrian area of the city, the restaurant part of the Women Center, offers fresh traditional albanian food with very convinient prices. All the income goes to support a social cause, which gives this restaurant an extea added value. Highly recommended! :)
