Since I started using the advises of this website, it has always success. At the beginning of this week, me and fellow made a trip by train from Bucharest to Brasov in Romania. The day after we rented a car and discovered the more beautiful way to Transilvania. As we wondered this beautiful city, we started to get hungry. I... More

We have only had breakfasthere, so can't comment on the rest of the menu. The breakfasts were decent and reasonable value. What makes the place is the location and the ambience. It's a very relaxing place to eat - big, comfy chairs, cool decor and jazz music at just the right volume (loud enough to listen to if you enjoy... More

Another restaurant where the food is average and the service very relaxed but you can still have an enjoyable time. The building is impressive and has been decorated to a theme. Don't expect great food or service and you'll have a great time.

Festival 39 is an unexpected amazing place, a restaurant with international good cuisine and wines. I really loved the home made pate with plums. The prices are affordable but in the main season or in the weekend, you definitely need a reservation. The architectural style is defined by a fusion of art deco and art nouveau, with a lot of...

We started the day with a visit near Brasov and we ended in Festival '39. A wonderful place in Brasov, with excellent food and services. We ate rice pasta with beef ... A sensations of taste! Try it...you will not be disappointed!

This is a very nice restaurant with a great atmosphere, very good kitchen and a good money for value. One of the worst things in Brasov is that there's smoke everywhere, there's no non-smoking areas in the restaurants and if there is, it's always in the same space as the smoking areas. With this restaurant is the same but you... More

You like style? A bit of the 30-ies? Jazzy, Al Capone perhaps? Festival '39 has it all. A very nice ambiance, a good kitchen, pleasant space for drink and food. Simply an excellent place for a good night out. Not the cheapest but certainly value for money. Tip: take a walk across upstairs and dream yourself 80 years back in... More

It is a nice restaurant with a pleasant atmosphere. The food is good, but disappointing serving. If you wish to make a telephone booking you will not succeed. You are told to phone back the next day at 12 o'clock. The next day at 12:00 they told that the tables are occupied. A nasty attitude! We managed to make a... More

....this is the impression you have entering there.I like the celling which is made by glass. Good food also, good wine, a wonderful atmosphere. The music is not too loud so you can talk with your friends.Sometimes there are small concerts especially jazz.

The atmosphere belongs to the beginning of the 19th century, the location is right on the main street in the old city - Republicii. Unfortunaty, the entire restaurant is for smokers. The food is ok, but not all of it, depending if the Chef is or not at work. The waiters are very good, they offer proper service, the prices... More
