Located in a rather stuffy basement, the food is served by uninspired guys in costume accompanied by an accordian and tin whistle. The meals were generous in portion and certainly edible if not memorable. I think the place gets so much tourist buisness that they have become a bit jaded. Several items we ordered were unavailable. Not a bad meal... More

If you are in Sibiu I recommend going there at least once. The restaurant is located in the cellar which offers nice cold during hot summer days. You can taste here traditional Romanian dishes of which I recommend bean soup with bacon and Romanian mixed grill with peasant potatoes. For drink go for the house wine - excellent white wine....

Best local food I had in Subiu, bit of a dark cellar but very authentic, ok service and pretty good quality food.. Worth a visit when you are in Sibiu.

If you can, go there at lunchtime, as it gets extremely busy in the evenings. However if you can get a spot in the evening they will often have waiters playing traditional folk music, wearing traditional clothing. Oh yes, the food.. While the menu with pictures doesn't do the simply unbelievably delicious food justice, best maybe to share a a... More

The food was very good so as the atmosphere. The staff could be nicer with the customers. The decoration is nice- traditional. Try the polenta there , is amazing. It's not very cheap, but not very expensive either.

I loved the place - 15th century basement. Strong thick walls, small windows at the top. But it was too dark even to read a menu. Its traditional Romanian food and it was good , but we had much better expediencies in smaller and less known restaurants. And I picked it for my birthday! Not great choice...

I tried more restaurants in Sibiu, and this one was good too. They serve good traditional Romanian food and they are friendly. It is the proper restaurant to try Romanian cuisine.

The food was really tasty and waiter was very attentive. We had mainly pork dishes including the shepherd bag...which was amazing! The waiter took the time to explain and recommend local dishes and rum, which is the smoothest I've ever tasted! We had a fantastic time, would highly recommend.
