Very good location, in the center of the old city, nicely decorated but nothing special in the menu.

If you are nostalgic for the 1930's era, that's the place to go. Beautiful vintage decor, nice atmosphere, good food... pricier than similar places, though. If you choose to eat inside, be aware that there is no smoker-free area and the ventilation is not the best. Overall, an average experience.

Waited for almost 15 minutes for someone to take out order and somebody came only after i went inside to ask for menus.Waited another 15 minutes for our drinks.On the bright side, at least they were really good.

The worst service ever! We had to wait half an hour before we could even order... we had to ask two times after ordering if we could get our drinks. The hostess said we should just wait and not nag her... Finally the waiter came again and said the order was lost... at least the drinks. He said he also... More

It is a very nice place, where you can eat with your friends or you love one a very good meal. It is a little expensive then the others restaurants from Republicii Street but worth it! I recomand exclusive for couples.

On my particular visit the wait staff was not friendly at all. Although the menu offered an array of multinational food, it was at best, fair. I asked for a condiment and waited almost 30 minutes for it. When I got up to ask for it I was told to "sit down!" In a very rude manner and condescending manner.... More

I have came here with my pregnant wife and found the food quite good. I've had duck with cabbage which was delicious. She had only a soup which was ok as well. We both had desserts which was ok. Serving was ok, quite fast. A good restaurant to visit while in Brasov. We'll keep it in our shortlist for laters.
