Millennium restaurant is a relaxing culinary oasis with a rare and delicious menu, side-by-side with a beautiful cinema, in the midst of the bustling city of Tirana.
Millennium Restaurant is a truly wonderful place, not only because of its wonderful ambiance and unexpectedly great menu, but also because it’s right in the centre of one of the most popular districts of the capital. Located in the centre of Tirana, just off the main boulevard and along the city’s main promenade, this place is part of the Millennium Complex, and sits right next to the cinema of the same name. It is, indeed, one of the ideal destinations for dinner and a movie in Tirana.

The glass walls surrounded by lemon trees and other lush vegetation create a kind of isolation that is perfect for this bustling area of the capital. During the day, the place lets in plenty of natural light from all sides, making it a very serene place to enjoy your lunch. At night, the perfect lighting gives the entire space a soft, romantic, and intimate touch.

Millennium’s menu is rich and full of variety. Fish and meat, as well as pasta and risotto are some main staples which, though available in most restaurants in Tirana, you will find are perfectly prepared here. However, the rare specialties very much worth noting are several exotic dishes like Alaskan crab, Senegalese shrimp, and crocodile fillet. The wine menu offers selections that perfectly complement these dishes and the dessert menu is equally as impressive, so make sure you save some room!

Compared to other restaurants in Tirana, the prices here are relatively high, as is the service and overall quality of the establishment. However, as soon as you realise that the divine octopus puree with caviar sauce costs as much as a hamburger in any European city, you understand that the prices are comparatively reasonable!
