I was impressed with a very professional staff, reliable service and very good food. Once in Istog, take a short walk to Burimi, large mountain source fifteen minutes walking distance from the restaurant. The place is really charming and would love to come back.

Called on the phone to see the price for two nights and staff said 50 euros, but when we went to check out, they told us 100 euros. No prices are listed online so I do not know where that money is actually going. They said breakfast was included, but when we went to staff asking about it, they just... More

It is a very good hotel at an enchanting place I'm talking about the restaurant now. Though you can eat nearly anything here the dish to go for is one variety of trout. They breed trouts in the place (many pools with trouts of different age and size). They prepare the trout in all varieties you can think of I... More

This is a real oasis in Istog, surrounded by high mountains and clean fresh air. The complex is primarily a large trout farm with beautiful gardens, a very nice garden restaurant and hotel rooms in the main building or in small cabins on the lake. Food specialities focus mainly on trout , but also include other griled meats and pizza.... More

Went here with my girlfriend to visit a friend. None of us speak the local language, and the level of English in Kosovo is not that great. Most people mistook me for a former local that was visiting, which was the reason for quite a few laughs. Even so the staff did their best to take care of us, and... More

The place looks ok, but it was funny that they brought me soup with schrimps, shells and prawns,you don't expect that from a restaurant with pool full of river trout:) However,service and food was on a satisfactory level, would recommend the place to any traveler driving to Montenegro (Rozaje) via Kosovo.

Trofta is a restaurant that serves locally raised trouts, I mean literally: they raise them on site. The hotel rooms/cabins stand over the fish tanks. You can see the huge trouts you may be eating later. On the specifics, you choose the main dish; soup and salad accompany: no choices there, which was just fine for it was probably one... More
