It’s an appealing restaurant at night - all outside and subdued background music. It is mainly a seafood place which does good fresh fish. It did get full and with only one waiter I was pleased that the service wasn’t too slow. Prices were average...for this type of place. Pity they don’t do dessert. I noticed previous reviewers commented about being asked to write on Tripadvisor - we weren’t.More

Do yourself a favor and visit this lovely restaurant "Taverna Lefteri " in Himara . The service is unmatched. The staff truly cares about your experience. The food is absolutely amazing – everything we tasted melted in other mouths. Absolutely the best meal we had...while in Homara. Highly recommend! 😍😍😍More

I already wrote a review but I've been too harsh so I'm writing it again. We went to this restaurant with my fiance based on the reviews on tripadvisor. We were hyped by the nice reviews... but don't believe the hype! We ordered seafood plates...which were average and not amazing... actually the shrimps were frozen, the ones you could get at a supermarket. But the main and very bad point (which is why I'm writing this review) is that we were forced to write a good review before leaving the restaurant - even if we asked for the bill because we wanted to leave the place asap since we were very disappointed by the food. The waiter (called Denis) made his little tourist trick and forced us to write a GREAT review about the fodd and his service, whereas none of those were good enough for us to get this restaurant just 1 star. I would have loved to rated this place 0 stars - all of the reviews whit the waiter name are being wrote because he is forcing customers to write reviews by being "friendly" (he actually made my fiance very uncomfortable by doing this and leave her non choice). Anyway and in conclusion : - Very bad service and very average food - Worst quality-price I have seen in Albania Do yourself a favor and do not go there - there's a lot of other places where you would eat better in HimareMore

We had a amazing and very nice stay in this lovely restaurant! The atmosphere was very relaxing and the food was a joy! I had a bass fish which was grilled on point! We were presented with a free appetizer and fresh fruits as a...dessert! The waiter Denis has a good sense of humor and a perfect service! The house liquor is my secret tip!!!More

Went for dinner, because of tripadvisor recommendation. Food was ok, nothing special. Staff was very friendly and chatty. The restaurant itself, seems to aim for haute cuisine. Portions are small and compared to other places expensive. Haven’t felt that it merits the high recommendation.

We was fist time here and it was wonderful experience. We are very thankful to our waiter and almost friend Denis to his cool sense of humor. We tried pasta with the shrimps and shrimps in tomato sauce (yes, we love shrimps so much 😅)...— it were very delicious! Also it was calm and pleasure atmosphere here. I strongly recommend this restaurant to everyone and necessarily try to find Denis 😉More
