Very traditional atmosphere, with especially designed interior, also folk music. The food was excellent and very well prepared (more than so than in typical "traditional restaurants") - was particularly impressed with the grilled pork tenderloin. Vegetarian alternatives are also good. Professional service, but seem to be a bit understaffed.

we ate at this lovely restaurant many times - because my husband worked in brasov - the only problem is that you ordered too much food: the mititei and veal chops-and papanash for desert. we were in heaven....

the restaurant is very nice, food is tasty. Stuff is nice and move very quickly. The interior is decorated in rustic style. Food is very fresh. I understand that they have their own farm. Average prices.

We went to Ceasu Rau with our friend who lives in Brasov. The place looks like a place that would be more in the country than in the center of the city.: wood on the wall, large beams in the ceiling and with a roof partly opened. The food is excellent and wait staff seem to all speak English. They... More

10 of us went for dinner. We sat outside in the enclosed court yard. One waiter for the table -- I thought that this would be trouble. It was not -- he took our orders and got everything right. He came by to refill water glasses and get us our drinks and refills. He was very pleasant, speaking both Romanian... More

The staff is right there to get you whatever you want to eat or drink. The food is so filling and good. The Pálinka is so warm and smooth.

The restaurant is very good. Traditional dishes with large plates. The prices are ok, not expensive. The place is full of people most of the time and the services are delayed cause of many requests. Overall a good place for traditional food. The minus is the smoking area, only 5 tables. Enjoy your meal!
