Friendly service and food that was ok but couldn’t make it to ‘very good’. As we were trying various Romanian dishes it may not have been a fair test but it was acceptable rather than great.

Location is nice and clean. Personnel was kind, not very fast. Food was very good. Prices are more than ok, considering the location and the taste of the food. Surely deserves a visit, either for lunch or dinner.

We were hungry and wanted something Romania to eat for supper. Saw their sign from afar, stopped in and found a patio packed with people. Too much noise. Went inside and found a grand old eatery waiting for us. Had a quiet meal and enjoyed...More

We found this restaurant by accident when searching for one of the others listed. The facade is a little unattractive but on entering the atmosphere was one of olde world decoration and plenty of loud Romanian conversation. From years of experience we know if the...More

I would urge you not to visit this place, certainly the worst meal experienced in many years, if not ever. Fast food would be better than this disgrace. The lunch menu may be cheap, but you'll pay after! The place looks nice from the outside,...More

30 minutes to place the order. That is saying all. Petty because the food is good. My advice is to avoid it. Go in a place where you are treated like a customer.

The food is very delicious, the prices are ok, except for drinks – they are overpriced. The interior is extra nice & cozy.

They have a good lunch menu and it varies each day so you don't get bored with the place easily. I would have given it 5* but it's so criwded during lunch time that the service is sometimes slow.
