“one of the best restaurants in Romania”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2013

Very good food, very nice people and dishes in real traditional Romanian style.
I was here few times and every time spent here it was very nice.
If you are in Sibiu and you want to eat something good in a nice place, Crama Sibiul Vechi is the perfect place.
The place is very central near the central Square (Piata Mare) and is better to make a reservation first.

“very good food and nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

The restaurant is situated in "Piata Mare" and is usually very crowded in the evenings. It's good to make a reservation in advance in order to make sure you find a table, as the place is not very big. Here you find real traditional Romanian food, very well cooked. The service is very good and the price you pay for the food is decent. It was one of our best choices for the restaurants in Sibiu!

“very good food, very nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

We've been here in december 2013. The food was excellent, really traditional dishes. The place is very central and it's an old basement that looks stunning. The service was also very good. The only problem was that we got a table near the entrance and it was cold. Make reservation if you plan to have dinner. It's not very big and they seem to be very busy.

“Great Meal in traditional Romanian setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

We had an excellent meal at Crama Sibiul Vechi. Enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. Service was excellent and there was a accordian player and singer which added to the fun. It is a small restaurant in a cellar, so it may be hard to find a table during busy times. We very much enjoyed and will return!

“Great traditional food, pity about the Romanian tradition for smoking in restaurants”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

Had a really enjoyable visit there, had tripe for the first time and didn't choke, with really nice and authentic Romanian food but, as has been pointed out in other reviews, quite a few people were smoking and that wasn't very pleasant. Also the table next to us had childeren playing incessantly on computer games and that was annoying. Overall an enjoyable visit, but could easily have been a lot better.
