Very good meal at Crama Sibiul Vechi

I had the breaded pork cutlet, with peasant potatoes and tomato and onion salad. All was very good to excellent. My wife had the peasant soup, and cabbage and carrot salad, also very good. We'd definitely eat here again. Excellent service, very nice atmosphere.

Had a lovely meal at this restaurant, located in a "Crama" or vaulted cellar in old Sibiu. Very traditional Romanian, Transylvanian and Hungarian cuisine served by waiters in traditional costume. A good value and the food was lovely. Only issue is that given it's tiny size, the smoke can really permeate the restaurant. This is typical for Romania since you... More

By far the best dinner in Romania in our four visits. A nice place in the enterence to the old town. The Cohrba in a big loaf of bread was the high light of our meal. Large choice of Romanian food well prepred in a very listening service. Very fair price for a delisious meal.Don't miss.

Deliciously presented into traditional pots and plates, served in a very Romanian setting. The service was great but the food was greater. I have to say this again, every trip to... More

At restaurant it is very stuffy. Empty seats aren't present, waiters hurry visitors that released a place.The food is given quickly, but it not tasty. The awful atmosphere, there is a wish to leave quickly that waiters achieve

Dear Client, I appologize on behalf of my staff. I'm sorry that we could not meet your exprctations. It is possible to make mistakes when one works 15-16 per hours per day. Regarding food, I think it's a question of taste. We are known to serve very tasty food, and we are very strict about quality. I hope you come... More

Given the tight space, they could ban smoking altogether as it's very hard to breathe there, let alone eat. Otherwise, the food is simply just excellent and the staff very friendly and prompt.

Starter and main superb, serving and restaurant itself excellent, but desert did not reach the same high standards and the toilets were a bit strange and not in keeping with the traditional atmosphere
