First: we left before ordering so I cannot say whether the food is good or not, but I still believe that their behavior was unwelcoming. We arrived at the restaurant around 7pm for dinner. When entering no one welcomed us. We stayed on the door...More

We ate here 3 times. The staff are friendly (not always a given in Romania). The food was good. The eating area out the back is a pleasant place to eat. My only quibble is that they twice brought the starters with the main course.

The place is quite nice and the food is good or very good. We have been there for lunch. The serving was satisfactory and only the soup wasn't too hot. But overall, it is a good choice in Turda to eat.
