The best meal we had in Moldova! We asked the waiter to decide some traditional food for us, and we had some delicious meatballs and lamb with polenta. The atmosphere was really good with live music. It was a little expensive compared to the rest of Moldova. The wine we where offered in the entrance was very bad, but except... More

Went here for first meal in Chisinau, as rated well on TripAdvisor. Considering that there were only 3 tables being served, felt that the service was quite slow & a little eyebrow raiser that they didn't have any of their local beer cold.

Very tasty and well prepared traditional dishes. I'm always returning at this place. Sometimes music is played too loud.

A great place to get acquainted to local specialties. We liked everything we ordered from beef in a cherry sauce (bovina vijina), to mutton stew with honey (cavurma), goat placinta and "’antrecot moldovenesc". Our waiter Micha was nice and efficient. They have live tzigan music with the strange cimbalom instrument - I didn't put 5 stars because we were placed... More

The food is very good and also the enviroment is a traditional moldovian style. The price is little higher than other place in Chisinau but anyway i advice to try it at least 1 time.

I really enjoyed the food at La Taifas. We got some small antipasta and very tasty steaks with good sauce ( one with mushrooms and one spicy) and grilled vegetable - can be recommended!!! Traditional and very well prepared, friendly staff speaking English and not expensive 40€ incl 3 big beers.
