We had high hopes for festival 39 given the high rating on tripadvisor. Unfortunately, we were extremely disappointed with our food given the cost compared to other restaurants and wouldn't recommend this place to others.
Here's what we ordered:
Almond chicken and Camembert salad - very disappointing. The cheese and chicken were sparse and the lettuce was the only vegetable in the salad. Definitely not worth 34 Lei.
Spicy gypsy pork pan - very bland. Lacking spice and flavor. The waiter had cautioned us that the dish would be spicy but it wasn't even mildly spicy. The potatoes were decent but the whole thing was just boring.
Broccoli and cauliflower gratin - was ok and ended up being the dish we liked most. At 28 lei though, it was overpriced.
The decor and ambiance are great (if you don't mind it a little smoky) and it's a nice place to stop for a drink, but I would go elsewhere for food.
