The masters of the local Gjirokastra cuisine, from the great master Kico to Mrs. Vito have in fact, given the restaurant the great reputation it has enjoyed, with their traditional and distinctive flavor food.

While Hotel Cajupi offers breakfast, brunch, and lunch, it is the dinner experience that illustrates the true talent of the restaurant culinary team. The approachable menu reflects the surrounding farms of Gjirokastra and changes according to freshness and seasonality, while pastas, breads, and desserts are made in-house allowing for a truly distinctive dining experience. In addition to à la carte options, the restaurant offers a tasting menu, allowing guests to explore the full range of modern interpretations of Ottoman-Albanian cuisine as well as Greek and Italian Riviera cuisine. Hotel Cajupi plays host to elegant private events and offers many different attractive setups to consider based on the size of the party and occasion.
