Dinner at Hotel Lućiano
Dhermi is a paradise. We found that the best place to eat in this secluded oasis along the stretch of Albanian coastline that straddles the Adriatic and Ionian Seas was the restaurant of the Hotel Lućiano. On their rickety deck hanging along a rocky outcropping above the water, you can get pizzas fresh out of their wood burning oven, massive greek salads topped with fresh local feta, and the usual offerings of pseudo-italian fare, all for the equivalent of a few American dollars. But the most impressive meals are those pulled out of the water by night divers while you wait. Fish were dumped onto the floor of the restaurant, still flopping, and for a few extra bucks we were able to hand select our freshly caught meal while we enjoyed a carafe of Albanian white wine at our oceanfront table.
