Alongside a long-standing and highly recommended collection of restaurants serving traditional Albanian cuisine and a raft of not-so exciting but equally enduring fast food outlets, Tirana continues to add an increasingly wide range of dining options to its repertoire, including more and more knockout Italian restaurants and a handful of much welcome additions including a genuine Indian restaurant and gourmet burger joints for the city’s new generation of hipsters.

With a few upmarket exceptions, dining in the capital remains an affordable extravagance that can be enjoyed outdoors for most of the year, and, remember, the further away you dine from the city centre the more you’ll need a credit card and the less you’ll need to tip. Menus in English are becoming increasingly popular. Eating out in Tirana has never been this good.
