This is a beautifully located restaurant but you really pay for the views. We've eaten here twice because we loved it but it was really a treat rather than an impulse. The food is good, but the menu is pretty much the same as most mid-range restaurants in Tirana. It's well worth a trip up the mountain but once you... More

This restaurant has a large covered terrace at the top of the mountain overlooking Tirana and the cable car. The view is stunning and the food and service is great. The choice on the menu is broad but we had pizzas which were very nice.

Views! Especially from the outer edge tables. The log cabin style house and the atmosphere was like in swiss alps. Service was very nice and professional. Food was very enjoyable and affordable; had traditional Ali Pasha soup (with some meatballs and garlic powered stock etc.) and big plate of bruschettas.

We visited Dajti together with a large group of visually Impaired people. We had contacted the management team beforehand about a possible discount on the Cable Car Tickets. When we arrived there we were surprised with the news that we all could go free of charge on the cable car and that the management team had invited us all to... More
