Make a reservation inside and enjoy the beautiful interior. If you manage to sit on the balcony, you'll have the best view over the traditional dance show they performance every day. Personell is friendly, and I would recommend to taste the Moldovan wines here!

Despite to have nice location and plenty waiters, the service is horrible. The location was not crowded, but the waiters did chats in groups of 2 or 3, neglecting the clients. The tables were not clean as per location “pretends” and price. The food was...average. We’ve had mushrooms mixed dish with polenta, and was fatty and could ( too oily). The pork leg was crispy hard skin oil boiled, even that knife can’t cut the skin, and the meat inside was dry and no taste fibers. The cabbage was little, and polenta was could. The cheese pane was average taste and the mashed potato’s were made with garlic inside: mashed potatoes with lot of garlic ( we’ve asked why they add garlic in mashed potato’s and they said that this is a new recipe? The location is worse than the years before and this was a last time for me and for may family here! For others: Do not get catch by the fame, get around and you will find a better choice.More

The quantities were great! The food was very good. The entertainment was joyful. The beer was tasty. Service was a bit slow but I completely recommend this spot. It’s a bit touristy but the building, food and overall experience was great!

I was recommended this place as excellent food. The food turned out to be quite good in taste, let everyone judge for himself about the appearance. But the service was terrible. The waitress did not come to take the order for a very long time....We also waited a very long time for food. When I asked if my stake could be rare, I received a positive answer, but the meat was brought very well done. After we received the order, the waiter avoided us, and others refused to take an additional order, saying that we have to contact our waitress. In general, it seemed that we were unwanted guests. Not to mention the indifferent and very unfriendly behavior of our waitress in those short moments of ordering and paying, I have been to many restaurants, but this left a very unpleasant impression.More

We had a big disappointment tonight. The order was completely messed up, then the waiter made us wait until midnight to bring us the food. Tochitura was awful, the vegetal burger ok, and the bill extremely high.

The food was ok, but the waiters on the terrasse were NOT GOOD!!! I think in lack of educated waiters it had been necessary to engage young people without experience.

I agree with the others, must be seen! We just went for drinks so I can’t comment on dinner, but the inside is very beautiful, definitely worth a visit. I would suggest making reservations if you decide to go.
