Cozy place in Himarë offering delicious food at very reasonable prices :) The owner is extremely welcoming and does everything it takes for you to feel comfortable and order the best dishes!! You can tell he cares a lot about his guests and is very humble. 10/10 would recommend if you want a Greek inspired Albanian authentic meal that will fill you up!!! Cheers :) Also, check out this tiny cat...so proper, so cute

Incredible service firstly, attentive waiters who speak perfect English. Generally Albanian waiters are laid back but these guys are different super quick, really attentive and kind. The lamb is the best lamb I've had in Albania in a 10 day trip eating lamb twice a day. They had a mousaka special which was the best mousaka I've ever had in my life. It had a layer of potatoe gratin(?) Which I think took it to the next level. We had the orange Himare salad 3 or 4 times and would recommend. Super generous portions. The chicken was also succulent and tasty. Can't recommend more. Absolutely amazing place!

This is a restaurant that serves food how it should be served- with passion, honesty, personality and a big plate of Tzatziki! Some people say the best restaurants are those with Mitchelin stars, but any true foodie knows the best restaurants are those that serve their food from soil and toil to plate and get the simple things right, and it's the simple things that are so hard to get right. The food here is absolutely exquisite. Christos has carried the same standard of excellence he established running a bar in Himare over to his restaurant. Expect amazingly fresh vegetables, mouthwatering meat, ice cold local wine and beer, affectionate service and a passion from the staff over what they are serving you. Christos is one of the reasons we repeatedly visit Himare, he's a credit to the town and to miss out on Pirosia whilst being there is a loss to those that don't go. Well worth the trip slightly out of town.

The food was good and the portions were generous. The staff was also very friendly and brought us as much bread as we needed without even asking as well as some complimentary fruit at the end. It was great service. I could even pay with card which isn’t very common in Albania.

We went there when no one else was inside. Waiter was very friendly, but maybe little too relaxed. Food was really tasty. We ordered appetizers and Moussaka which wasn't in the menu but was offered to us. I don't think that the amount of Moussaka was fair for price paid. After we were done waiter also offered us Apple pie which also seemed bit overpriced. Other than that it is pretty good find.

Thank you very much for the review! I think that the price of mousaka is the lowest in the whole area of Himara. Also mousaka is very difficult to made. For the apple pie that is handmade, like everything else, i not think that 2.7€ or 300 Lek is to much. Have a great holidays wherever you are! I hope to see you again and serve you more fresh and traditional food! 🙂

This is a family owned business,the owner is really nice and friendly and he is the one that’ll serve your food. The food is mainly of greek inspiration and the portions are really big. They do not have any desserts on the menu but they do serve complementary fruits or they might have ice cream if you ask for it.

We were looking for an authentic dinner and found it in the Tavern. It’s great food and nice to share the different plates. The host and all the employees were really polite and we felt very comfortable. Sitting outdoors surrounded by a lot of cats was very nice, also there were good prices. one of us is a vegetarian, which is kind of difficult in Albania, but there were tasteful and a variety of vegetarian options. would recommend! The tzatziki is awesome!

This place is a must if you’re visiting Himare! We enjoyed a delicious meal here during our stay - the food is delicious and the service is excellent. I would highly recommend the pickles, olives & homemade pie. You also get a complementary plate of fruit at the end of your meal which was a wonderful surprise! It’s tucked away a little way from the main town making it super serene and a perfect way to end your day. Highly highly recommend a visit!

We really enjoyed our evening meal here. We waled from Himare at sunset based on the reviews and were really glad we did. The setting was beautiful and relaxed. The food was delicious and fresh. The hosts were very hospitable and friendly. We felt it was great value for money and would eat there again in a heartbeat.

We had dinner in this cozy place run by mother (the chef!) and son and we had some of the best dishes we tasted in one week in Albania. Orders were taken by the son, very friendly and ready to help if you ask for suggestions and/or translation of the dish. The cuisine I would say takes from the greek and albanian tradition and is mainly based on meat (including lamb), cheeses and vegetables, in a good variety, but don't go there looking for fish: there are a lot of taverna for fish, you go here for something different from the others. Meat aside (grilled or cooked in other ways it is all good) I suggest to try the eggplants stuffed with cheese and tomatos, a little spicy, which were wonderful and do not miss the desserts: astonishing. Guys, I really hope you will not change in the future and will stay "true" and non-touristic as we found you, because this is what makes you different from the others.

We were on holidays at Imara and we saw this very beautiful restaurant with plenty of prople eating there. We returned the day after for lunch! The welcoming atmosphere was just the beginning, the owner was very nice with us. But going at the point: the food! It was delicious, I personally took pancetta grilled, chicken sausages plus a fried egg and potatoes! I'm am very satisfied!

We went here after reading all the reviews but had one of the worst meals during our visit to Himare. Cannot believe this in number one in Himare. We has far betted meals elsewhere. I tried the lamb on the spit which turned out to be a few lumps of bone, gristle and fat from mutton. The service was also poor, they seem more interested in all sitting at a table and chatting. Would not recommend.

Arguably the best coffee I had in Himara. Truly Greek hospitality makes you feel very welcome right from the start. The food is delicious, atmosphere friendly but not overwhelming. Stuffed vegetables, Imam Balidi and Strudel pie were among the things we tried. The Pirosia can be recommended for any meal. We also had a really good breakfast here.
