Delightful restaurant in the heart of Tirana. Rather `Parisian' decor, beautiful place settings. Handwritten menu as it changes every day. Very well cooked food, served with harm and graciousness. Good house wine and delicious coffee with chocolate mints.

Very good food and service! It's a very small restaurant which makes it even better. The menu changes every xx weeks. The cook is apparently a famous French cook in Albania.

We love Otium. We visit it everytime we are in Tirana. Arvin the chef owner is a creative genius. It's hard to make a choice but don't worry, no matter what you choose you will want to perform your own reproduction of Meg Ryan in "When Harry Met Sally". It's defenitely a place to visit in this city. Thank you... More
