Reccomended to eat there
Mar 2021
We stooped there only for breakfast, did not had the tour, I understood that is nothing special. In terms of food it was good, the only think that I would consider still needs to be improved is that the smoked beans soup wasn't smoked at all. It has a medieval atmosphere with medieval music. I am not a fan, but I appreciated the effort to differentiate and to respect the theme of the place.

Tourist trap

It is not worth the money , it’s a waste of time as it doesn’t have anything related to Vlad apart from a coffin and a table .

Tourist trap
Oct 2019
There's no doubt about it, this place is more of a tourist trap than a historical exhibit. It's almost tacky and the souvenirs are definitely overpriced to match. However the service and food were both excellent, so it's not a loss for a Dracula lover to come here. Would not recommend going to Sighisoara only to see this place though.

Disappointing exhibit; save your time and money
Sep 2019
Casa Vlad Dracul is in the heart of Sighișoara citadel, about 70m from the clock tower. The three story historic building is alleged to be the birthplace of Vlad III Dracula (around 1431), now turned into a restaurant. Vlad was the second legitimate son of Vlad II Dracul, ("Dracul" indicating his membership in the Order of the Dragon). Vlad II lived in this house in Sighișoara (then in the Kingdom of Hungary), from 1431 to 1435 when Transylvania became an Ottoman tributary state during the Ottoman–Hungarian Wars. Although the building is centuries old, the interior has been completely rebuilt. The exhibit is in two fabric-draped rooms on the second floor, with portraits of Vlad III, heavy furniture, coffins and spiders scattered about. I found it disappointing. The restaurant downstairs offers traditional Romanian foods. Vlad III Dracul's alleged birthplace is open daily from noon to 8pm with an entry fee of 5 lei.

The exhibit opens around noon. Please do not come here exclusively for this, you will be disappointed. The whole experience is one jumping spider and a guy in a coffin. I suspect there were two jumping spiders but one didn’t work. It’s interesting but not what I thought it would be. There is a second room with some great statues and paintings, which was the best part of the exhibit for me.

Disappointing and sad
Nov 2019 • Couples
Not worth the admission fee, just and overrated "haunted house" with no hauting. A couple of Halloween decorations and a silly jump scare. No effort put into it at all and the place has a weird smell. Thought we would visit it at least for the history of the place but were very dissapointed, although they had a lot to work with they just didn't care. This place needs better management and someone who values the story of it.

Give a pass on this one. It’s a 2 minute experience consisting of 2 rooms and 2 silly jump scares. I don’t even understand why they charge an entry fee. I mean it’s not expensive, but it doesn’t make any sense at all.
Total rip-off. It’s a great historical place, being the house of Vlad Dracul, could have huuuuge potential, but the execution is terrible.
Saddest part about it? There’s a guy paid to sit in a coffin 8 hours a day, with a mask on, in a poorly ventilated room, whose sole purpose is to jump scare you.
Just. No.

Presumed Birth-place of Dracula
Jul 2019
Located between the Citadel Square and the Clock Tower, it is, reportedly, the oldest stone house in Sighisoara. The legend says that in 1431, during the Turkish invasion, Dracula's father, Vlad Dracul, the ruler of Wallachia at that time, was hosted in this building, together with his pregnant wife.

Great Meal in a Historic Spot
Oct 2019
I've always wanted to visit sites connected with Vlad the Impaler, so it was a real pleasure to get to Sighisoara and Casa Vlad Dracul. Sighisoara is an amazingly scenic, well-preserved medieval town, full of beautiful buildings, and Casa Vlad Dracul turned out to be a great restaurant. My husband and I sat on the sheltered rooftop deck during a rainstorm and enjoyed a very tasty meal, served by friendly and efficient staff. I highly recommend the cabbage rolls.
