Good local food and Rumanian dancing

Visited with work colleagues. Very good value for money for the food and wine we had. For 2 big courses and lots of wine it cost us about £20 each! My fish was excellent but everything was good. Had a big plate of charcuterie to share between 5 of us and 3 portions was more than enough as a... read more

A great pick to enjoy local cuisine. 2 starters, 2 main-courses, wine, and desert for under 200lei. Fun atmosphere, and traditional Romanian dancers. Service was excellent and friendly. Location close to Old-town.

The food is very good. We enjoyed the dinner because they have a special room for non-smokers which is not common in Romania

My love and I, had a great dinner at this restaurant. The food was very good, great atmosphere, and we got almost to much to eat. The price, Lei 230,00 for starter, maincourse, beer and some local shots was cheap for us norwegians. It was a busy evening for the waiters, but they give us a impeccable service.

We went here for the night of my birthday. A very nice restaurant with large tables in our case, overlooking the street, which was perfect. An attentive waiter, excellent food - I had a very good schnitzel cooked exactly as I liked, my partner had pork and polenta served in a Romanian style. Definitely reccomended for a local experience, we... More

My colleague and I went to Vatra as a recommendation from our hotel concierge. The place is pretty easy to find. It's not on the main road but in fact opposite direction of Old Town. Place looks small on the outside but it's pretty spacious inside and tables aren't crammed together. The tables felt very private and had an intimate... More
