Excellent service and value

The food was good, but the service was truly outstanding. My pescatarian sister didn't realize the Caesar salad would have chicken and they offered to get her a new one when they saw her picking the chicken out.

At last a genuine non-smoking restaurant - sick of Spaniards and Germans messing with my lungs!!!! Food - mixed grill - juicy and with peasant potatoes delicious. Chicken on a spit - not dry and sweetness of capsicum comes through. Well done Oh and yes they actually have green salad without the sand/grit here. Everyone wanting to eat with locals... More

Surprisingly, in comparison to other reviewers, my impression about this restaurant is not so good! First of all, I wanted to make the reservation one day prior my visit but the published phone number did not work at all! Second, the ambient is standard but not more! The worst was that I ordered pike perch with Meuniere sauce and I... More

Great food. Very warm and welcoming staff and just an all around nice and relaxing experience. A much different experience than on the Main Street. We were greeted as soon as we entered with smiles and everyone spoke English very well. Although they didn't have what I wanted from the menu the server offered me something else which was delicious... More

Friendly and fast service. Delicious and accessible food. I especially liked the ciorbă de burtă and papanasi. The only thing missing is an outdoor space and paying with card facilities; a minor inconvenience.

The restaurant is just off the main street in the old town but also somewhat off the beaten track. The menu covers many Romanian specialities (often pork-based) and the prices seemed much more competitive than a lot of the more tourist-geared restaurants a few streets away. Our food was excellent and the beers are amazingly affordable. Very friendly staff too... More

The staff is nice, albeit a bit small. The food is good, just be careful to order your own garnish, the main dishes do not include it.

Actually this is a review for the accommodation that they do offer. They have sone rooms upstairs which are ideal if you want to be in the heart of Brașov. The location is prefect, all main attractions are walking distance. Cleanliness is top and prices are fair (we were there in one of the busiest period of the year). The... More
