This is a beautiful spot. I am from Albania and I always thought going to the Dajti Mountain was a touristy thing to do which is why I only went there for the first time in August 2015 primarily to show around my foreign husband and his parents and my Albanian family who tagged along with us for a fun...

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.

From the Balkoni Dajti you can eat or drink something and see the whole City of Tirana from above. The view is amazing and though you hve one of the grates views the Prices for Food and bevarages are still very low.

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

Because everything sounded good, the waiter was so nice and the view so breathtaking, we over-ordered. We feasted on olives that we surmised were local, given the groves we saw from the Dajti Ekspres Cable Car, along with salads, cheeses, lamb, chicken, potatoes... Let's just say, thanks to this feeding frenzy, we forgot to have dinner.

The dajti express cable car is a must do in Tirana, and Ballkoni is very conveniently located. The restaurant , the washrooms, playground, and grounds are all well designed and maintained. The food was good although pretty average by Tirana standards. The menu was very meat heavy. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful.
