The restaurant offers a good place to meet with friends, have a business dinner or have a good time with the family. The food is very tasty and there is a lot to try out. A great thing is that it has a non-smoking room. You have to try the chocolate cake, made in house. :)

This place is worth seeking out (and it's really not that hard to find). It's one of the few places in Romania that recognises that some of us would prefer not to have to endure other people's smoke - it has a decent, large no-smoking area on the ground floor, and sends the smokers up the stairs. Hooray. The food... More

We found this restaurant while searching for our guesthouse. Except for the sign, it is difficult to spot. We arrived early, while the staff were still eating or at least planning out the evening. However, right away we were maid welcome and able to communicate in English. The food was good and my kids, who ordered the schnitzel, were very... More

We had a very good meal in this restaurant. It's not very fancy but it's also not expensive and the food was very tasty. Service was also good however we were lucky the restaurant was practically empty. Another great thing is that it has a non-smoking room. Would be great to have more vegetarian choice.

We always come back to this restaurant. The service is excellent, the food is fresh and well prepared and the prices are better than most restaurants in the area.

Very good food for a very good price! Yum yum yum! I had the chicken breast in sour cream with mushrooms and french fries, a glass of delicious red wine and a dessert, all together 30 lei, which is 6 euros! Good atmosphere, smokers upstairs so you're not in the middle of smokers. It's in a backstreet close to the... More

Pretty good deal for a meal. The food is above average, but like in most places in Romania customer service is nearly non-existent. It's a really nicely set out restaurant and there is free wifi.

This restaurant is well-presented and the service was excellent. The ground floor is non smoking (and is nicer than the first-floor smoking area). The food is traditional Romanian, and inexpensive (especially considering that this is in the old town). The food was good and fresh. Perhaps not the fanciest, but great for a cheap meal out.

The prices are good, but the food quality dropped, probabily since the street on which the restaurant is located has been closed to traffic and the food supplying is poor. They don't have all the dishes in the menu and, for the dishes they have, they replace the ingredients they are missing. I asked for a cesar salad but they... More

Went with my girlfriend for lunch. She had a vegetable soup, a salad and breaded cheese . I had cordon bleu with Romanian fries. The food was great and the wait staff was nice and quite fast unlike many other places we've been to. The biggest shocker, however, was the price. Everything we had, drinks included, was under 60 lei... More
