We enjoyed this restaurant so much, we ate here again the next day. The restaurant is the closest to the fountain in the Old Town square. The first night, we ate indoors. It’s a long cavern with an arched roof like an airplane hangar. There was live music--a keyboard player and a singer playing a lot of American classics in English and some songs which we presumed were in Romanian.
Our group of six ordered a Long Draught, which was 2.5 liters of beer in a dispenser. There was an interior column that holds ice to keep the beer cold. Someone else ordered the appetizer, so I don’t know its name, but it had cheese, egg and sausage in a bowl. It was delicious and would have made a great meal by itself.
For dinner I had the pork tenderloin with “gnocchi”. The gnocchi were more like mashed potatoes and weren’t very good. The pork slices were very tender and tasty. Everyone in our group enjoyed their meal, but it was too much food to finish.
For lunch on the second day, they told me that it was too early for Transylvanian sausage. So, I had to order Weisswurst instead. They warned me that the sausage were boiled; I guess that meant that they had less flavor than fried or grilled. They were still good and came with tasty beans. After two of us hiked the wrong street up the steep hill to the black tower, the four of us plowed through two Long Draughts. We thought that the prices were very reasonable by American standards and would eat here again.
