We have been there at 6 p.m. so we had free choice regarding the tables outside. So we could enjoy a fantastic view over the bay of Saranda. Our meals were excellent as well and the staff very friendly.

The Lekuresi Castle is quite plain but offers some great views of the sunset due to its height and the fact that it overlooks Sarande. Its worth going here in the evening and catching the sunset over a cup of coffee (or wine) which we...More

Me and my girlfriend visited Lekuresi for the sunset view. Took a taxi up the hill (takes 10 minutes from Saranda city centre) around 6pm. Caught the beautiful sunset with amazing view, accompanied by a nice glass of red wine from the castle outdoor restaurant.

No need for reservation - but have to say depends upon tourist traffic on the day. Suggest just go with it. Do not be lulled into agents pressing you to make reservation. Hope this helps
