Mandarine Restaurant - Vlore

Updated: Apr 3

Mandarine Restaurant - One visit


We were recommended this restaurant by a friend in Durres, it started out rocky with service, but once we found the Sommelier it all turned around.

We started out lunch with a lovely bottle of french champagne (also have half bottles), followed by a recommended Italian white, and he was spot on with our palette.

The restaurant is part of Marina Bay Luxury Resort & Spa, but the views are magical, another perfect place to enjoy the sunsets of Albania.

The food was exceptional, we thoroughly enjoyed trying new dishes and were incredibly impressed by each and every dish was absolutely delicious.

You must try the Tiramisu, quite the experience and was heavenly.

There is also a great cocktail bar called Lime Lounge Cocktail Bar upstairs to continue your long lazy lunch and take in the evening sunset.
