Excellent place

There's nowhere you could get yourself in the atmosphere of a Transylvanian tavern. Food is great, portions are really big. Keep in mind that there's plenty of people in the evening and there's no non-smoking area. Better come for a lunch.

Yes you might have to wait as no bookings are taken. A traditional Romanian dining experience with both locals and tourists. Very reasonable pricing even in very poor Australian dollars. Good service,food and local wine.

A small place in the city center that offers really tasty, traditional food. The place is overcrowded most of the time, but the prices are acceptable and the service is good.

The location is near old town, the center of the city. The restaurant is a bit small and you may not find always a place. The food is very tasty and services were good but not great in our case. Serving was fast but we wait 15 minutes for the change. The waiter made a few good jokes. Overall was... More

Often when a restaurant gets too much hype (in guide books etc.) it deteriorates, but not in this case! They were about to close when we arrived, but still let us in for the usual amazing Romanian food, and even though it was obvious we were the last customers in, service was attentive and we didn't real rushed. If you... More

We followed the reviews related to this restaurant and I must say that overall we were satisfied. Unfortunately, they do not accept reservations, therefore the only way is to try your luck. We had to wait for about 15 min, as there was no free table (some people need to understand that a restaurant is not equal to a bar,... More

Good central location. Great cozy atmosphere, in an underground old wine cellar (crama). Friendly excellent service. Had a great "ciorba de perisoare", and an excellent "ceafa" (pork neck steak), which is not too easy to find in Romanian restaurants. Relatively expensive.

Every time I feel to have romanian food or I want to please my husband I choose Crama Sibiul Vechi. The food is always very good and the service provided by the waiters in traditional romanian clothes is very attentive and professional. The only minus: lots of smoke. Anyway. ... still the best romanian food, especially for tourists wich want... More

If you are a vegetarian don't count on Romanian traditional food :). Instead, if you are a meat lover, i recomand you "traista ciobanului" sheperd' bag. Definitely worth trying
