The moment you enter this restaurant you instantly go back in time! The music, the furniture, everything whispers a story for those who are willing to listen. It's the time when you leave all your cares at the front door, the worries, the work, the whole world you once knew, They have the best strawberry cocktail!! With alcohol, of course!... More

Service was good, a little slower on Saturday night than on Thursday, as it was very busy at the weekend. It appears making a reservation is well worth your while on the weekend as we ended up outside on the Saturday because the place appears to be very popular. The food is also very good, we are both veggie and... More

We had a very good time in this location. Our experience was enhanced by our excellent server LUCIAN that was beyond the excellence. Next to us was some people from England that was very unpolite with the server and undecided. Defenitely we going to come back here.

While I've never tried the food here, I always enjoy stopping by and having a drink or a coffee whenever I'm in Brasov. It has an excellent, retro and intimate atmosphere, nice music and really good cocktails and coffee is served. It might not be the best in terms of foodstuffs, but the place is quite magical and worth visiting... More

I must admit the food was great, and the service was excellent. But what I enjoyed most was the decor. The theme of the 1930's was impressive. Not to mention the bathrooms which portrayed quite interesting scenes. A definite plus from this traveller.

For being so highly rated here on TripAdvisor our trip in Brasov was to include a visit here. With the interior coming highly rated and the atmosphere, maybe the only thing giving it any points. The food was about average, nothing special. A huge menu too, making it hard to choose with little unappetizing pictures to help you. The long... More

Festival 39 is located in an ideal position on the main shopping street of Brasov. The décor in side was nice but it was really smoky and just looked dirty. Not really a nice place if you are a non smoker but it is probably worth the visit to just see the inside, not to eat but maybe for a... More

To be so well located, to our surprise not a tourist trap. Well varied menu. Excellent meat. A bit slow in the kitchen, very nice and attentive waiter. Interior decor to be seen and remembered.
