To start the waiter was rude, when we ask for the menu (no QR) answer badly "only romanian" and throw it on the table, not on the hand. Came to take the order and look at us bad bc we were not ready, trying to...understand, didn't offer help or explain. Then she passed and threw at the table the basket with the cutlery, not nice. One of the people don't eat sheep and order, by the txt on the menu, something without sheep, the food has sheep taste; the guest, to avoid drama, swap the plate with other guest; when we mentioned to the waiter she just answered in a way that she didn't care, lifting her eyebrow and twisting her mouth, other will answer in a polite way and apologize and said will pass the msg to the kitchen; the pastrami meet, other plate, was hard, not soft. We didn't expect something free or exchange since we made the comment after we finished. We didn't feel welcome from the beginning.More

Our farewell to Romania meal was held here, we popped inside as the terrace was packed. Great traditional food at good prices, attentive waiter [best in the restaurant I felt], not a pushy place at all considering it's the old town. Liked it a lot...and makes a good option for lunch or dinner.More

Got there during vacation. Although nothing special, steak and burgers were definitely ok, and service was timely. Would recommend

I took the homemade lamb and it was not special. Just a small piece of lamb with mashed potatoes. Wine was ok. Service normal.

Don’t go here. It took them more than an hour to make one plate of Mici. The waiters were rude. And the food was cold when it arrived. In a city filled with good restaurants, it would be a mistake for anybody to visit this...place.More

Once again I was on the quest for some sarmale. Once again I found a great place, The hostess was smiley when I asked for my sarmale which made me feel very welcome. The lemonade is tasteful, the bread with pesto butter is totally fabulous....The sarmale was great and that big green chilli was hot. I would highly rate this place and I shall be returning before I leave to try there mici and hopefully get another friendly smile. The location is good when you don't want to go directly into the centre of old town so felt more relaxing away from the crowds.More

This place is definitely underrated as you get more than in many other places in this area for reasonable price. I enjoyed the food and drinks, waiters were friendly too.

This restaurant has nothing in common with Romanian cuisine, even if it promotes itself as such, food is often undercooked and by no means traditional.More

I ate a Bel air salad (vegan), that had chickpeas, avocado, pomegranate seeds, Black sesame and other veggies. It was tasty, but not glorious. The design of the place is really instagramable, from my opinion being a mi ture between modern and ethnic. Prices are...mid range and for non vegans, especially meat eaters, there are a lot more dishes to choose fromMore
