Amazing in Cluj

It is a cozy small place, hidden from all the city noise. You just get the feeling that you are at one of your friends places gathered for a drink or a small dish. The food is incredible, we couldn't stop ordering. The menu is simple, but everything there is amazing and the prices are also... read more

(I was actually there one year ago, Nov 2014...). I arrived into town late one afternoon and after checking into my hostel the staff recommended I try out Kaya Tanya (a few short blocks away) for an evening meal. I travel on a budget but my tummy was also rumbling so I decided to give it a whir, hoping to... More

This is a small restaurant with great food. They prepare it locally and it has the taste of home. It is situated in the old town and if the weather is good, dining outside gives a priceless feeling beside the delicious food. There is a daily changing short menu, because they prepare the meals in each day giving them the... More

This is a tiny place, with a friendly atmosphere. The food is good and the serving is really quick. It is a good place for a quick byte.

Different place to eat, a small place and a cozy atmosphere. Nice for a lunch out. Not a very wide selection of food, but you can always find something to choose.

Had lunch here on a recent trip to Cluj - homely place, though only having high stools to sit on it's not a place to really relax. Tasty and filling food, though the oven roast pork was a little over done in parts - the potatoes were very tasty. Food very inexpensive.

I really like this place for what it offers, a changing menu of simple home cooked meals for a good price. It is good a place located in the center of town, if you just want a quick lunch. Great service.

Nowadays the menu seems a bit repetitive (for a place that presumably rewrites it's chalkboard menu every day, updating it on the go as the fresh stuff is sold out or the chef prepares something new) but it's still small and cozy and the food is ultimately a great value for money. If you're new in town, definitely check it... More

We spent a few hours in the restaurant, sharing dinner ... with a few cheeky flies. Luckily they were resting time to time on the cups with (tap) water. Is difficult to enjoy your meal and fight with flies. Service staff seemed tired and bored. We had to ask targeted questions about the drinks. We had to ask expressly napkins.... More
