We stopped there thanks to the music and we weren't sorry. The food was very goo d, especially the home bread with lard and onion and the potato dumplings. Nice location, friendly staff and fast enough serving.

The service is great and so is the food. We were kindly welcomed inside and received a table according to the number of persons. Waiters are very kind and smiling all the time. The value of the money is great as well and the food...is simply delicious.More

Hi! 3 couples, we entered, the waiter told us we would wait for the food for 2 hours. We then proceed to a table that Just cleared. We asked the waiter again if we could sit down, he said we were welcome to sit but...they would probably not be able to serve even drinks because they were very full. I Was absolutely amazed. I've never heard anything like this in my life. I thought he was kidding but he was dead serious. There where 3 waiters and around 22-25 persons inside. Many people got in and out in 10 minutes, probably being told they could not be served. Best avoid if you do not want to ruin your evening. Thanks!More

The food here is very poor ... The owner does not know how to put this old restaurant (oldest in Romania) in the top he deserves.
