Description: In a place where the most different kind of music and scenery meet in a surprisingly armonious way, Pardon Cafe Bistro it's a must on your "to do/see" list when you get to Sibiu. The cafe's tables are former sewing machines and they are named after european cities. Items that remind us of another era, a time when Bell or Felini were alive hang fron the walls and the ceiling is covered in music sheets. That cafe is placed across the street from Thalia Hall and it has the terrase one of the most beatiful streets in town. We are going to let you decide whether this is the perfect place to escape reality or not.

“Worth visiting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

One of the most original places in Sibiu, with a very nice decor and good food.
The only observation would be that you have to wait a litlle too much until your food arrives.

Very nice house! Nice work restauration! Nice decor! Nice position!
But, the food wasn't what I aspect it, the oil was old and the girl that served us was too busy with friends that with clients!

“Lovely hangout place..with delicious food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

My friend who lives in Sibiu recommended me this place, calling it her favorite café. I was very impressed with the décor and with the menu selections…they offer many types of food and we got to try a few. The Pardon pasta was delicious….a type of Alfredo sauce served with grilled chicken that was probably marinated in wine. The pizza is also good, but not the best I had in Sibiu. The different types of coffee are all yummy, but if I were you I would stay away from the Irish one, it seems to be more whiskey than coffee. The staff seems to be divided in two different shifts and we had only but pleasant service with one of them and quite the opposite with the other.
