This is a big restaurant which can accommodate large groups - the day we visited there was a group of about 40+ on a long table Our group was smaller with 12 Service is OK, though maybe a bit abrupt, but I don't speak Romanian which limits interaction for sure. It's a huge menu that is very reasonably priced, possibly... More

A dear friend took me here for lunch. I've eaten a lot of Romanian food over the years. As an Amercian who has lived in Romania for over seven years, this was the BEST food I've eaten in any Romanian restaurant as well as in most homes here. I highly recommend eating here and I hope to bring some Romanian... More

After renovations the inside place looks better, little bit reminds me of cantina style. The service was a little bit slow but good. The food was average, bean soup was ok but the mici tasted to much soda bicarbonate. Great to have "special" water in the pitcher. The prices are reasonable. The wine was also good. This place is good... More

We went to Roata Norocului at the last minute and we're lucky enough to get a table in the terrace. The ambience was great with a live singer and the staff were both friendly and very helpful. Food was good and we same led a few Romanian dishes over 3 courses along with drinks. When it came to the bill... More

We went to eat there following a good review on the papanasi desert. Indeed this desert was excellent but the main dishes were not so. The food was mediocre, the soup not worth a review. the whole restaurant is full with smokers, they do not have any room for others, so it's quite hard to breathe.

I have eaten 4 times in this location and every time it felt like a home cooked meal. It was realy good! I recomand the tripe soup, it was the best I have eaten in Brasov. The service was rapid and always nice.

Close to the city center, on the way to Poiana Brasov(at 5 minutes walk from Aro Palace hotel), the restaurant is a big surprise. I eat here, for the first time, in 1998 and the restaurant still resist on the market. They keep the line and have good food. Also they have here "casata", a local ice cream. Brillant place!

This restaurant has a wonderful authentic menu and ambiance. The food is absolutely delicious and very filling. Make sure you have space for desserts, which are fantastic. Service is very prompt but not intrusive and some wait staff speak English very well. There was live music performed on the night we dinned, which apparently is often. It was tasteful and... More
