This has to be my favourite restaurant anywhere in the world. I can't remember how many times I've eaten here! The service and food is always excellent. I cannot praise this place enough. If you are ever in Tirana, it's a must!

We stopped here for a big family lunch after spending the morning in Tirana. The building is beautiful...it has a castle vibe without actually being a castle, and the lawns and gardens surrounding it are gorgeous. There is a field in the back with horses and goats and it gives it a really serene feel. The wait-staff were very friendly... More

There seems to be a confusion here between two restaurants. The 1,2 and 3 ratings seem to be all for a castle type place on the outskirts of Tirana. My review along with the other 4 and 5's is for the one located on Abdel Frashari on the edge of the Blloku. Lovely evening, skilfully coordinated by the head waiter.... More

Had a lite meal here. Food and restaurant were 5 stars for sure. Wifi rated 1 to 2 stars because it was down most of the time. I therefore put overall rating at 4 stars.

I wish I have discovered this restaurant long time ago. Situated in the very hear of Tirana it has an atmosphere that remind of an old Italian trattoria, warm, cosy and colourful. The staff is polite and efficient. The fish soup is simply amazing an it has become my number one fish soup in Tirana. A more than decent plate... More

Juvenilja is a nice restaurant, looking small from the outside but quite larger as soon as you step in. The head waiter is the same guy since 11 years ago when we first visited this restaurant. The place hasn't changed this last decade and you know what, why changing a winning formula? The menu has traditional dishes beside the usual... More

During my recent week-long stay in Tirana, I ate at this restaurant four times. The menu is diverse enough to offer something for everyone or enough variety for the repeat customer. The pizzas are excellent, the pasta good, the salads at this time of year perfect. Our waiter (we had the same one all four times) got to know us... More
