Traditional restaurant, huge portions and very friendly staff in traditional dress

My husband and I had lunch in this restaurant with a group while we were on tour around Romania. Although there was 25 of us, we were served quickly by a very friendly staff in traditional dress. The food was traditional too and the portions were huge. We had soup in clay plates, with... read more

We were in a quite large group at a big table. The music was so loud we couldn't hear each other. Even though we asked them to turn down the volume it didn't happen. The menu is full of names with no ring for the normal Romanian and seem to be taken from the fantasy world of Bram Stoker. All... More

The restaurant doesn't blow you away in any way. The staff is ok, sometimes the music can be a bit to loud and the smokers area could use a better ventilation system. But the main attraction at this Restaurant is the food. The authentic Romanian food. All the dishes have plenty of food, the prices are reasonable and you can... More

I went to the Iulius Mall location for the first time for a family reunion. The food was delicious and the staff was really friendly. Our food was delivered in a timely manner and it was delicious. I was impressed even with the decor.The restaurant is decorated with traditional Romanian artifacts and even the staff is dressed in traditional wear.Picture... More

I'd like to start this by saying I'm Romanian, but no longer live in Romania, so whenever I go back I do like to get a taste of "home food". I had a mixed experience with this restaurant, on the one hand the soup was excellent, very delicious traditional Romanian beef soup. My main on the other hand was really... More

I've been there many times with my foreign colleagues and present them the traditional Romanian food. Huge portions of food.

Please take this as a suggestion mostly for vistors from other countries. Romanians do not seem to care. You will be treated as nobody if you are not a smoker. The restaurant will have you seated in the middle of the restaurant in front of the door that is opened most of the time. Even though the restaurant is empty... More

This place has excellent food in large quantities. The setting is great, but as most restaurants in Romania, this place has a smoking problem. Sure, there is a section for non-smoking people but it is placed between two smoking sections which makes it worse. So if you can endure the second hand smoke, you will enjoy a hearty, delicious meal.

We eat at this restaurant every time we visit Cluj. We like the traditional romanian food cooked very well. The service was great every time and the athmosphere is friendly. Nice to go with friends or just 2 people. We will go back next time

Avoid Brancusi str. Hanul Dacilor on Saturday evening! Have been full with small children who were running like hell all around the room while the parents were just watching them. Waited 45 min for desert. My last visit there!
