Its a nice place to eat. The romanian traditional food is very good. It is a bit too dark, no signal for phone and internet, so you can enjoy the food and the ambiance.

The food was ok but the service was terible, there were only two waiters. I ordered some mustard that never came...The place was crowded and dark. Don't sit next to the door because it makes a lot of noise and people are rushing in continuously! And to finish we waited like 20minutes for the bill...i had to go to the... More

Yes, it is a cellar restaurant so-called "traditional Romanian" but note that it is dark, gloomy and small with antipathetic waiters but most importantly the food is indeed below average. All what we ordered was bad and tasteless.

All that was nice. We had a good cheese appetizer which was really tasty. We all got meat dishes. My boyfriend got a traditional cabbage/meat dish and... More

We went for lunch based on trip advisor reviews. You definitely wouldn't find this place without a map as its tucked away but definitely worth finding! Set in a basement/cellar with dim lighting and with waiters in traditional outfits and with traditional Romanian dishes. We had peasant stew and smoked pork with polenta. Both tasty although the garlic sauce was... More

It could be that I ordered something that I didn't like much but the food was only ok. The service was very good and the waiters were attentive.

If you are visiting Sibiu and like to taste some Romanian food this is the place to be. The food is of good quality and the restaurant is in a old basement in the centre of the city.
