My foreign partners were in Romania and I invited them to Hanul lui Manuc. They just loved the venue, atmosphere and the food. If possible, go there during the summer and enjoy it in open air.

You need to check their website for the calendar show. Some shows you cannot buy online and you have to go there in person. Call them to know when the tickets for the show you are interested are available.
