The restaurant is located in a basement floor, everything is warm and cozy, feels really really cute (definitely romantic). Every single dish we ordered was just beyond expectations..Excellent! Don't forget to order dessert :)

We had a nice dinner at Crama Sibiu Vechi restaurant. We did not booked before a table here, but we were lucky to find a free one. We arrived here at 6PM, but usually the people are dinning later in the evening, when it's really busy. We had a dinner full with specific romanian kitchen. We really enjoyed how the... More

We stayed only one day in Sibiu so we didn't have much time to do our research. So we dined at this restaurant, which although is obviously touristic it offered us great taste in what we had. Recommended dishes: shepherd's plate and saxon beef.

Waiters were friendly and speak english very well. The food was so and so: polenta was way too salty, salads tasted like had some sugar in them. Cabbage rolls were good.

Since we had only one day in Sibiu we didn't want to wander around in search for a good place to eat, decided to give Tripadviser's no.1 restaurant a go. We arrived around 5 pm and the place was almost empty, but only half an hour later people started coming and soon there were groups outside waiting for a table.... More

Great place with Romanian quisine and rustic interior (basement). Tasefull sarmale and the thing that surprised me was that every salad served as a side dish was without any dressing - just raw vegatable mix eg. some grated cartots,cabbage, selary (?) - very strange thing about Romanian restaurants.

When in Sibiu definitely try to go there. Its very busy and when we ate there it was always around 2 parties waiting at the entry to get a seat- so maybe booking beforehand is a good idea. Its very traditional-ish and therefore also well known among tourists so it looks like an insider tip but raised well above that.... More

The restaurant does not have too many tables, so I recommend to book in advance. The waiters are dressed in traditional costumes, which adds to medieval atmosphere, and they are very busy. They were moving quickly, but still took a lot until they brought the first course. The food was delicious. They have many local recipes, one should try them.... More
