This chain of restaurants is a great alternative for bigger, more expensive restaurants you will find in Chisinau. The variety is great, portions are huge, staff very friendly and helpful when it comes to chosing an unknown dish. They are located all over the city, so once in Chisinau, go and try moldovan cuisine, which is delicious.

I wouldnt say this place is fancy - just if you want to grab a bite and not spend shor of money its fine. Better not come evening cos you might wait bit longer for your order, staff not bad, look at new adds they offer - times they are better than ones in the menu..

Good food for a reasonable price with a pleasant atmosphere and fast, effecient service. Close to the opera house. They even have a play space for children. This restaurant is very similar to Puzata Hata in Ukraine.

Placinte, salty traditional Moldovan and Romanian pie with cottage cheese, or cabbage, or potatoes. You can find here different types of these pies, including the dessert version, with apple, pumpkin or cherry. If you go there, do not hesitate to taste the soups, meat and fish. The stylish traditional design and atmosphere are nice.

Awesome food for decent prices. Represents the traditional cuisine fairly well. Always a fun time with either family or friends. Service is above average in terms of being quick and polite.

I never imagined I would ever encounter a traditional fastfood place! The result is very tasty! This place is usually part of an "Andy's pizza" duo kind of thing, the restaurant is split in two and you can choose between this Romanian style food and the Italian style food.
