We stopped here for lunch on our way to Shkoder and were treated to a very tasty lunch and a nice drop of wine to. The internal decor is interesting and abundant in old agricultural and household implements scattered round in quite an attractive way. The food is good the atmosphere is good too.

Tradita hotel is more than a hotel,I easy can called a museum hotel to where you experience the past and present. I have been more than 20 times for the last 5 years and so far I have to say that each time they are improving more and more. I love the way that staff are dressed in traditional clothes.... More

I heard a lot about that restaurant before I even visited Albania. I was even thinking about having my wedding there, but somehow I chose another location and I think that was a good choice. I went there with family for lunch after visiting Rozafa Castle. We were waiting quite long even that it was not very busy. I ordered... More

This is one of the best traditional restaurants you will find in all Albania. Staff is friendly and the food is delicious. Ambient is excellent with old style architecture of Albanians.

This restaurant is located in a nice post if the city. The food offered is a bit pricey, but is the traditional food of Albania. They have nice events that happen occasionally, but not always the best advertised...

We really enjoyed the food and the live music. The whole place had such an authentic Albanian feel. We were disappointed we didn't sit in the main room which had the lamb roasting on a spit - so we'd recommend booking as they seem to be really busy.

Welcoming staff in this old house. Naked stone all around with large open fire. Carpets, old tools. Very beautiful interior. Food was good.

Built in the late XVIIe century, rebuilt refurbished recently to make an hotel, Tradita is everything I always dreamt off. It's full of traditions, the staff is charming, the lady in charge very funny and likes giving you a lot of home mad local liquor after dinner. The place looks fantastic, especially when you leave your room and see everyone... More

The place looks wonderful inside, but the food was definitly overrated. My first two choices of the menu had not been available. The veal I ordered then has been quite dry. The dishes of my colleagues did look the same. Something has been missing.

Tradita Geg & Tosk Hotel and Restaurant, is located in Shkodra city. It is an old traditional house dating 1694, a nice traditional place, surrounded by an ethnography which Mr. Gjon Dukgilaj successfully transformed into a restaurant and hotel. Built with typical elements such as stones and wood, the interior is furnished, decorated with the old authentic objects and traditional costumes from the area. Seasonally the owner transforms the complex into a museum in order for the clients to enjoy the Albanian culture atmosphere.
