Good food but lots of smoke inside. Went there on several occasions and the worst was for a breakfast.. felt as if i was eating smoke.. Food is good and so is the service. Prices are a bit high. The restaurant mood reminds me of Festival 39 from Bucharest but the music unfortunately is not the same.

The best thing is the atmosphere! Situated in an old house, acting as a bar since medieval times, this place is a great mixture of a restaurant with a pub or a cafe. I've had great pasta, the service was good and the live jazz music caressed my soul. I will definitely come back.

Really long cocktail list with prices that will let you drink cocktails all night! I recommend the Strawberry's Love! We had drinks here several times and dinner once. We had the tapas to start which was very nice and then the 'different' stew and the pork and peasant potatoes - both again very nice. Stew in Romania isn't usually like... More

This place oozes atmosphere and charm but the food and service is also fantastic. I stumbled upon this place one year ago and returned last week and is still the best restaurant in Brasov by a long way. Relax after a delicious meal in the lounge area next to the bar. I am not a smoker but if you cant... More

This place is amazing. The decor has a hint of old and cozy at the same time. The music is also nice, mostly jazz. The food was brought in no more than 15 minutes and was very tasty. It is difficult to find something bad to say about this restaurant.

It's the first and the last time I go there. If you are not romanian eat somewhere else. Waiters are arrogant and disrespectful. They are laughing at tourist between them. Furthermore be careful! there is a difference of price between the bill and the menu. You will find so many beautiful other places in Brasov with nice people.

We loved this place. Really interesting decor, good, friendly staff. Great food at pretty cheap prices. Lots of different dishes to choose from, really something for everyone here. The thing that lets this establishment down is the smoking, it almost put us off eating here as we had to wait at the bar and have a drink while we waited... More

We were a big group of people on a crowdy night but they managed to prepare us a table. The food was good, the location is beautiful and the decor impressive. Staff is friendly and willing to help. The service was a little slow though and one of the waiters simply forgot about someone's drink order. Overall, a great experience.

The restaurant will spoil you with delicious, diverse and bold at affordable prices in a chic setting that sends you back in time. I recommend!
