Good food, nice atmosphere, perfect waiters

I really enjoyed this restaurant. I like the simple design of the interior, the fact that, at least where i was seated, it was not allowed to smoke. The waiters were perfect ( eager to help but never pushy, always attentive, happy to give information about wine or any of the meals). I also enjoyed... read more

Little place off a narrow street, VIA is the kind of book that one should not judge by its covers. As I stepped out of my taxi to enter the restaurant, I enjoyed the simplicity with which the entrance has been set up. Inside, both floors and the garden are furbished with taste, simple and elegant. The food is something... More

Because of the "bought" reviews and biased of other resturant owners and unfair reviews of this one it has come to the 6th place. However, don't be fooled by the ranking and GO eat here!!! You will not regret it. The dishes are amazing and reasonably priced for a restaurant in its class and the service is impecable.

When I said "nice" I referred to the location itself, very well placed in the old center of the city, I alos wanted to mention the food, the quality of services. Based on my experience the restaurant can be recommended to the business people, to the tourists and to all those who wants to go to a good restaurant. The... More

This restaurant has a lovely interior and the food is just amazing. You find seasonal dishes as well as high class favourites. The prices a surely a little higher than at many other places, but I personally think it's worth it. Perfect place if you have something to celebrate, want to enjoy a romantic dinner or would simply like to... More

I think this is my favourite restaurant in town. Pricy, but it is well worth every penny. When I first came there none of the items on the menu sounded special, so I just went with some more or less random; I was impressed when the food arrive both by the presentation, and the unique and special way in which...

Surprisingly, VIA is not ranked at number one in Cluj. The non-smoking dining area was a luxury in this country of smokers. Food was superb, be careful not to eat too much as the desserts were the better experienced in Cluj. Correct and friendly service.
