Service was awesome, food was amazing, price was phenomenal. Husband and I ate here based on reviews from TripAdvisor and Lonely Planet. And we would go again if we were here longer. We had a salad, grilled vegetables, rice balls, veggie dumplings, rolled beef with yogurt sauce, and honey curd dessert. With Wine and a Coke Zero our total was... More

We have dined at Kujtimi Restaurant twice. The food was excellent. The grilled lamb and also the chicken were delicious. The grilled mixed vegetable and grilled pepper were a good compliment to the grilled meat

This is a lovely little restaurant, serving extremely tasty, fresh local produce, cooked at the end of the dining area next to/over an open charcoal fire. The owners and staff are extremely friendly, and the food is very good value. (As you can see, I really rated the trout - one of the best I've ever had- but all of... More

When you find a great restaurant you return. Kujtimi is the only place we ate dinner while in Gjirokaster. It is a small place where breads are toasted and meats grilled over the embers of a fireplace at the end of the seating area. The chicken was fantastic as was the service. A number of locals were also eating there... More

The Kujtimi is a very friendly and small restaurant offering traditional Albanian and Gjirokastrian Food for more than reasonable prices. For just a few Euros did we order around 7 or 8 dishes, most of them being very well done. It is not a place for haute cuisine, so get that out of your head, but a friendly, authentic country...

I had dinner here and enjoyed all local specialities they serve. Very economically priced too. However, the man who took my order and who served the dishes didn't bother to look me in the eye even once. Even though I'm quite sure I didn't, I felt like I had done something seriously wrong or offended him somehow. Not a very... More

We came here for dinner as part of a large group. Service was good and the food excellent, although the goat that was one of the courses was exceedingly tough. Overall we had a great evening and the restaurant benefits from its location, which is close to the main centre of the town but situated off the Main Street in... More

Located in a nice spot, owners are very nice and enthusiastic. We were there with our 1 year old son and they were very accommodating. Recommend ordering a combination plate (not on the menu, but recommended by the owner) which included 5 samples of different plates. We added a salad and baked cheese to this and total was about 1200... More

The speciality is a kind of rice ball with herbs and a bit of meat. It was great. And the setting was wonderful, a small courtyard covered with foliage and a lovely ambiance.
