Mrizi i Zanave

“Mrizi i Zanave” is a little paradise located in the village of Fishtë in Zadrima. There, you can find fresh air, lush nature, fairy-tale landscapes, and some of the best food you’ll ever taste.

The agrotourism venture “Mrizi i Zanave” opened its doors in February 2011, born from the passionate dream of the Prenga family to create an enterprise that would transcend the boundaries of self-profit in their native land.

Mrizi was among the first restaurants in Albania to fully promote and support its cuisine with local products from the area. Under the motto “local produce, global food,” it began its journey to become one of the most well-known restaurants in the Albanian regions. It started only as a restaurant and gradually expanded into other activities such as lodging, agricultural and livestock product manufacturing, a wine cellar, and a distillery.

Today, “Mrizi” collaborates with many local farming families and employs about 70 people.

It is this combination of tradition and modernity, attention to detail, and a unique experience that makes Mrizi i Zanave a welcoming place for anyone seeking a stunning location with flavorful food and quality service culture.
