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.

It's been a few months since I went to Casa Ardeleana, but I can still remember the surprise when I walked downstairs in this simple mall. We were visiting friends in Cluj and they were kind enough to take us to this please. I confess that I probably wouldn't have found this place if it wasn't for our local friends.... More

This is a restaurant that I would seriously consider taking visitors to Cluj to as they would get to sample traditional Romanian cuisine in an authentic setting. It is a shame that it is downstairs in a small shopping centre so there are no windows, views and only artificial light however if you want traditional Romanian food in an authentically... More
