Great Jazz and Ambiance...

I love this place! There are some poor reviews here about the staff, and so far, and I’ve been there numerous of times, I haven’t had a bad experience. This is of my hangout places when I visit Brasov…perfect spot for a rainy day! Good coffee, good food, and great live music!

Beautiful and nicely furnished place on a perfect position in the city. The staff is friendly and the food ok. It is better to go there for a drink and ambiance.

This place had some vintage 30's decor and mellow atmosphere. Service and food were prompt. No complaints about the main courses and the dessers were great!

Festival 39 is a restaurant-bar situated in the old center of Brasov. I was with my family for celebrate an anniversary. I can say that it has good and diverse food, a lot of drinks ( more expensive). Good services. Pleasant atmosphere with live music.

We waited for at least 15-20 minutes and we watched locals enter and find seats, while we were given a small table just next to the saxophonist, so it was too loud and we gave up. We decided to walk out and when we saw a free table for four we were denied from taking it since we were just... More

We visited Brasov in early April expecting an extensive walk around the city, possibly including up what the original Germans there called the Zinne, the impressive 3,000 foot mountain above the town centre. But it was snowing heavily and bitterly cold, so we retreated to the Festival '39, the most attractive of central Brasov's cafe/restaurant offerings, so far as we... More

We had a large(ish) party and were seated at a great table in a really funky and cool 30's retro bar and lounge. Service, as in most places we visited in Transylvania, was prompt, friendly and helpful. The local beer as always was excellent though more surprisingly, the Romanian Cabernet Sauvignon on offer was excellent. The food was bland but... More

It is always a god choice for having dinner or lunch. The potato soup is the one I enjoy most. Been there with a couple of friends and they enjoyed the location and architecture of the place.
