Great place

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.

We visited Festival 39 in mid-week and it was still busy with locals. Good choice of food and reasonable prices. Loads of interesting decor about Brasov in "Altadata". One downside was the lack of no smoking area and everyone seemed to be smoking. Would certainly return if back in Brasov.

I went with some friends a couple of times and I can honestly say that I will be definitely be going back. The atmosphere is excellent and the drinks and food are equally delicious. If you are ever in the city you should go in and I can guarantee that you will find at least one thing that will "speak"... More

Been here a few times over my visit to brasov. Really like it here. It's decked out in an old school pub / gentlemen's club. The local beer cost about 4.5 lei for about 500ml. It was cold and good. Food is excellent for the price. There is also jazz music some nights. The only downsides is that so many... More

Every time we go to Brasov, it is our place to go. It is just relaxing, and the food is very good, we never had problems with the service.
