Good option when everything else is closed

This looks like a typical tourist trap bar, but the food was surprisingly good. The lasagne bolognese was a standout -- slow-cooked bolognese sauce, a creamy bechamel, delicious mozzarella, and perfectly cooked fresh lasagne noodles. The prosciutto and Brie pizza was good but doughy like a deep dish. Service was relatively good and very friendly. The wine list is good and reasonable. Inside in the back of the restaurant is a large room where locals play pool and card games, giving the place a more local feel. A good place to stop for a bite, a rest, or a cocktail.

Staff make the difference

We stopped off in Palanzza for an hour or so whilst waiting for the return ferry and the cafe is opposite to the right as you exit the terminal - we sat in the outside covered seating area. The young Albanian waitress who served us was really good - humerous, chatty and efficient - if only all cafes could find such staff then eating out would be so much better as we've experience some really grim service during our travels. The food was nothing special - the cod was bland and personally would have preferred fries or salad to accompany rather than fried potato. However, the tea is quite good and comes in what looks like a sugar straw - in fact I'd go so far as to say that other than loose leaf tea, it's probably the best I've had in a long time.
