We visited Cluj Napoca and one evening had dinner at this restaurant. It is far away from downtown in a huge shopping mall, so we had to take a taxi, which is not expensive. The food in the restaurant was average. I had a steak with french fries and a salad. The meat was ok, the french fries old and... More

was only really traditional place we could find that had a no-smoking option and room, good value, and fun atmosphere. hard to find, you go through 22nd century coffee bar then down. The restuarant, which is well into the left side of mall to the back, terrace also available, and above river, unfortunately a road in between, but inside is... More

I visit Cluj quite often and as this place is a few door down from our office, it has become one of my favourite and most frequently visited establishments. The food is good quality, local fare, mostly served on wooden platters in good sized portions. All the meals I have tried there are good with my favourites being any of... More

The food is outstanding. I've been here 5 times and never had a negative experience. The prices are quite reasonable. While my local friends advise me that much of the food is quite "traditional." Besides, it is delicious.

Having reserved a non-smoking table we were directed to the non-smoking room (a rare luxury in Cluj it seems) three flights up. Sadly, of course, the smoke is in the ventilation system and we could still smell it slightly. I had the bean and sausage soup which is served in bread and good fun - but porton too big for... More

I'm not a traditional one, but when I visited Cluj people told I have to try Hanul Dacilor, and I'm glad I did. The food was delicious and even though I expected to wait longer, it wasn't the case. The waiter was very polite and friendly, he made suggestions we actually took. It's a pity this place has not a... More

Food was always good, sometimes they overdo it in terms of spices used ... and the Romanian dishes are sometimes overly decorated. However, it is tasty, huge portions (unfortunately) friendly staff and relatively good service (when not fully booked) ... For traditional Romanian food or for a few good steaks, go for it.

If you like or if you want to try the traditional romanian food this is the right place in Cluj. There is a problem if you go there at rush hours because you have to wait a little bit to be served, but I think that it worth.

The food is good and the prices are not high at all. I would definitely go again there. We stayed at the 2nd floor, in the no-smoking area and it was a good choice because in the smoking area we couldn't breathe. At the bathroom it was clean enough. Altogether, it's not a fancy restaurant but has good food.

You can take literally anything off the menu, whether it's entrees, appetisers, deserts and it would still be the best execution of recipe anyone has ever made. Could crepes be any more delicate, fluffier or tasty? No. Could SARMALE be more tasty anywhere in the world? Not. Could a soup be more flavorful anywhere else on the planet? Not a... More
