Welcoming personnel, menu is changing according to seasons and u will always be welcomed with great dishes, a good variety of wine which i think they change according to menu changes. Had a pleasant time there. P.S. I'm pretty sure they have a dress code so be aware and don't go if ur wearing sweatpants or way too comfortable clothing

Very good place to eat and listen good music. The place is decorated vintage, the food is more then good and the people nice ... the only minus are the prices, that are little bit higher for Brasov.

It used to be a nice place with friendly staff. Now the place is still nice but the staff is a little rude. The waiting time for the food is sometimes over 30 min. On a good side of the things the beer is nice and cold always. The atmosphere depend on the day and the mood of the staff.... More

Where to start. I had mixed experiences at Festival 39. The food taste great for the most part. They also serve somewhat extraordinary dishes like humus and interesting cheese / rice mixes. Price wise, this place is expensive. This is where I would expect them to be stocked all of the time, but sometimes I get the: "we ran out... More

We come to Brasov twice a year and always come here for a meal or two. Food and service always excellent and our latest visit no different. We have tried many other restaurants in Brasov and none have come close to Festival. We always find it to be a really nice atmosphere in the restaurant. Really enjoyable place to spend... More

The art, the taste, the smell, the sights in this restaurant awake the old values of the citizens of Brasov like they used to be around 1900 and a little bit later on. It is a special place where the nostalgia is in its home and returns everyone at their origins at least for some moments. This restaurant makes me... More

The space is brilliant - 1910 hotel restaurant. Service good, with friendly personnel. Many options in the menu. We have tried both veggie and meat. Everybody was satisfied. We will come back for sure.
