Must try

A pure Romanian place. Nice decoration, relaxing music. We tried the soup (beaf) nad the duck plate. It was very very nice. Food display is not great but the taste is for the price paid. If you are passing Brasov then you should try it.

Within walking distance to the main square, although from outside a little bit hard to discover the name and the place. Nice atmosphere, jazz music, lot's of people, better to reserve a table before. The waiters very professional,the food was good, we really enjoyed the history of this place. If you don't like the cigarette smoke you should consider going... More

An exquisite trip back in time to the distinguished 30's era. The restaurant is packed to the very last details with authentic era details, everything has a nice weathering feel. The atmosphere is fantastic, the food is outstanding, and drinks are good. Staff customer friendliness can sometimes be fine-tuned in order to deliver a perfect experience.

When you enter in this place you lose your mind, look like a real fairy tale. We ate breakfast here three times. Every moment was exceptional. It is not possible to lavish more praise on the excellent, friendly, professional staff - they were first rate. Our food was a triumph. You owe it to yourself to go here - it's... More

The atmosphere lent itself to having a nice social drink with friends. The history of the place as a gathering place in past was interesting & entertaining. Nothing out of the ordinary here. Drinks were good & service mediocre.

We went on a Friday evening. All tables where reserved, but managed to find one. They have live music, which is very nice, but a little too loud. The foos is great, the portions are enough and also the lemonade has a lot of lemon, it was very good. The service was ok. I will go again to eat here!

Good food, nice atmosphere. Prices a little over the average. Didn't give 5 points because of the cigarette smoke. (But I guess you can not find in Romania a restaurant there smoking is forbidden.)
