Albania was long hidden from the world under the boot of one of the most brutal totalitarian regimes the world has ever known. From the beginning of this century, however, Albania is now one of European tourism’s last frontiers. It is one of the most welcoming and beautiful places we’ve ever visited. While the rugged mountains, beautiful coastline and azure blue waters will take your breath away, the genuine warmth and friendship of its people – and the fabulous food – are the memories we cherish the most.
Each of these restaurants holds a special place in our hearts. Often, it’s more than just the food itself. It’s the richness of culture, the wonderful people behind the scenes, the way a spot makes us feel at home.

Special Mention - Shala River
We only enjoyed a meal at the restaurant – we didn’t stay overnight. The grilled trout was perhaps the best we’ve ever enjoyed. Crispy skin without drying out the flesh, and perfectly spiced – just darn yummy! The sides of roasted potatoes, Greek salad and fresh baked bread were generous and tasty. Fascinating home made wine. A highly recommended day trip from Shkoder.
