We found this place by randomly walking around looking for somewhere to eat. We sat outside. We ordered chicken soup, Caesar salad, and the salmon with mashed potatoes. Food was good but portions were small and a bit pricey compared to other restaurants we've dined at in Romania. The waiter was not friendly, never smiled. He made us feel like... More

We ate here twice in 2 days (dinner and breakfast the next day) and both times were excellent. Service is good, but tends to be slow when it gets crowded. Overall great place. Highly recommended

The place takes you back to 1910 when men wore tall hats and large moustaches. Much detail is given to the interior. Even the menu looks like an 'old newspaper'. The menu is a bit a strange collection of dishes but each dish looks nice and fair priced. After 10 days in Romania trying out several restaurants this one was... More

I ordered a simple dish which is usually the fastest and it took forever.I asked the waiter to bring me a parmesan sauce and I almost finished the meal until he brought it (by the way,I think they...

If you want a place with a retro fit style theme, good music and ambiance this is the one. Good food, average to high prices and good service. And yes, original and artsy restroom wallpers.

Wonderful place! So much character, such quirky and clever atmoshpere, good music and amazing food! A must if you visit Brasov - which, by the way, is the most beautiful town in Romania, alogside Cuj, Sibiu and Sighisoara.

Saw the reviews on Trip Advisor and decided to go. Everything we had was absolutely perfect - salmon (the side vegetables were not so great, but the salmon as such was the best I ever had), fried Camembert, chicken sour soup a la grec, beans soup with pork, gratin potatoes. They had wine by glass from Aurora Visinescu which was... More

Prices are a bit higher that some other places but they cocktail menu is large and they have a selection of whiskey and cigars. I have not eaten here so i can not comment on the value of the... More

I feel pain in my stomach. I found something discasting in my wine. I inform the waiter and he told me it is normal and this thinks is from the bottle. Bartender said is from the atmosphere or from the dirty glass. They did not say sorry...
