The soups are amazing too! The only complaint is that after you get your food they don't really come to check on you unless... More

WE ate there more than once. Soups are really good. The meals are definitely fresh. Service is not very fast to take your order, but once you order the meals come soon. Very tasty

The food is delicious, the atmosphere is traditional, sometimes can be a bit to noisy, but the food and the prices make it just right. I love their soup, placinte and mamaliga of course! P.S. You should try coltunasi cu cartofi :)

We had a great meal here. Good choice of local dishes which were all delicious. When we went there was also live folk music which added atmosphere. We asked for their best local wine and it was exceptional. Really great service as well. Definitely a highlight of our trip to Moldova.

Thank Sophie K
