the fish is predictable and good and so are the grilled vegetable. the atmosphere is nice and the price certainly reasonable by american stantdard. we are here in low season which helps. this place is popular for tourists but the food is still very good.

the service is pleasant and the location is perfect, near the sea and the hotels.

The restaurant is in the main walking street of Saranda. The service is ok and the food is excellent. Probably the best restaurant in Saranda. The atmosphere is cozy and friendly. Try saganaq. Simply when in Saranda don't miss it.

I have recently been told by those visiting Saranda for the first time in a long while how much it has improved and was still dirt cheap and high quality, and indeed in that vein ‘Gerthela’ seafood restaurant was recommended enthusiastically by two locals at opposite ends of the town, one a nearby competitor. Well? Ok. Nothing special, nothing to write home about, very good wild greens, but served twenty minutes before the fish with no olive oil, just the way they do things I suppose. Then came the ‘French fries’ and Octopus. Octopus superbly tasty - which was good as it was just that sitting on a plate unadorned or dressed. There was nothing French about the fries, potato slices cooked in oil piled up on a plate until half have become soggy. I ordered a glass of white wine and it and the one that followed it, altered my perception of not good enough until I found it all ‘Ok’. The main course fish – I was taken into the kitchen to select it myself, and urged the foraging waiter on as he came up with tiny baby versions of the ‘white sea bream’ promised on the menu, until we found in box three – polystyrene containers packed with ice – a reasonably large sized member of the species. It arrived some time later on a plate, just that, with a slice of lemon, for 27 euros, 600 grams. Ok? I fought through the bones and smothered them down with a crème caramel and coffee (no compliments from the house – itemized on the bill 200 lek for the caramel, 100 for the espresso, both of a good standard), but the total 5900 lek (45 euro) was rather highbrow for a fairly lowbrow meal. Well the head man, asked me ‘how was it?’ ‘Ok...but not amazing’ and shrugged his shoulders and walked away content with ‘Ok’, and if you will be then this will be ‘Ok’ for you too.
