... but not anymore! The soups were almost cold and extra salted. We asked for one thing and received another. The bill wasn't real. We paid by card and the waiter gave us the difference in cash, from his pocket. It was the last time we went, that is for sure.

With high ranking in Tripadvisor we went here for lunch. Located in basement of a shopping center. "Typical" decoration. Waitress very friendly. Enough interesting choices. We went for salads and beef. Both salads were very good. The beef however was without any taste despite the bath of sauce. Adding a lot of salt and pepper trying to get a bit... More

This place is a must visit when in Cluj. This is where you can find real traditional Romanian food ( specific to the Transylvania area). Very friendly and helpful staff ready to give you the best advice on what to order if you are not decided. The traditional atmosphere is sustained by the decorations and the music played in the...

Best Transylvanian food we had, and we traveled all over. Best homemade Țuică (Transylvanian plum spirit often offered to start the meal) as well. The waiter could not have been nicer, and every dish was delicious. Highlights were the Cabbage a la Cluj, the duck and, of course, the goulash. Every appetizer and condiment was superb as well. Even the... More

Going downstairs in this shopping centre, you will discover a wonderful restaurant. The decor gives a very traditional feel. The waitress is dressed also in a more traditional style. We had excellent service, with many of the dishes explained to us very clearly, which helped us make good choices. I had an aubergine starter, and a beans/sausage main (sounds ordinary,... More

Nice staff, authentic design, great food! The large menu contains about everything there is to eat in Transylvania, with some hungarian and german influences here and there, just like the region. Also vegetarian food, a big plus! I totally recomend the steak on hot stone, something to die for.
