Traditional but limited

The food is pretty good so far, the menu is a little short (on choices) though and it can get a little chilly (bring a sweater just in case). Other than that, thumbs up, a should go - in the summer at least)

Decent food and decent prices. Worth only if you're nearby and hungry. The choices are very limited, most based on pork meat. No desert either. This place used to be much better, i guess they were not able to keep up.

I have discovered this restaurant by accident, in one of the shopping malls in the center of Cluj-Napoca. When you get down by the stairs and walk through old wooden door, you will find yourself in a beautiful and picturesque restaurant. Old wooden chairs and tables, open fireplace, interesting details from Romanian folklore on the walls, in the shelves...Beautiful and... More

....Casa Ardeleana is the place to go! It is a rustic, cozy restaurant, with nice and helpfull staff. The dishes are excellent, it's a must to try the bean soup served in bread. I honestly recommend it for everyone that visits Cluj-Napoca, as well as for the locals. For the foreigners I only have one suggestion: BEWARE of the TUICA... More
