My family brought me here for my birthday. I have lived in Tirana for more than 15 years. This is by far one of the best meals I have had in Tirana. Everything was done to perfection and the filet mignon was one of the best meats I have had here. The presentation was also beautiful.

The place differs from other places in Tirana as a representative of non-traditional, non-typical, "new" cuisine, which makes it stand out from other places. It is a mid-sized place without printed menus, but with friendly staff that explains your dining options. My wife and I loved it for the experience and all of the tastes -- although one might be...

We came here having read the Trip Advisor reviews and loved it. It's a small cozy restaurant but there is plenty of room and we had a lovely table by the window. There's no menu but the friendly waiter talks you through what is available and helped you to put your meal together. Portions in Albania are large so we... More

I visited the restaurant with a large group of friends and we were quickly accommodated and served. The combination of the starters were fantastic as were the grilled mains (options of beef, three types of fish, and chicken). Our deserts were a combination of all the restaurant's deserts and they were flawless! We were given a complementary fruit platter which... More

My husband and I found this restaurant from TripAdvisor which seems to rate restaurants and hotels depending on the number of comments. So for this reason I can't not leave Tirana without making a comment for Otium. Otium has the most delicious food in Tirana. It's absolutely a 5* restaurant. The mixed tastes are incredible and fantastic. It doesn't matter... More
