Food is good but you have to wait for about 3 hours to finish. Service is very bad and not friendly!

Very nice place, but with very high prices. When we saw the price list, we got up and left. No surprise that there were only one more couple in the hole restaurant... But apart from prices, nice looking place.🙂

The 2 nd time we have visited the fork - for us it was too good We took this time the 5 course tasting menu with wines. The service was excellent, the food even better - plating, service, tastes just the best. Highly recommended if...you want to fine dining experience in Transilvania.More

Very disappointed coming back to this grand hotel and this restaurant. Prices are absurd and for that price what do you get? Sloppy waiters, very (very!) small portions and no bread, no extras, nothing. Ordering a 100 ron beef steak leaves you begging for bread....We asked 4 times for bread and the portion brought to us (see photo) is nothing but a joke. The same bread that they have in all the complex, they just cut it up in very small pieces so that you remain hungry and eat you fois gras (!) without bread. Trully shameful. We won’t be coming back next yearMore

I decided to order in some room service for dinner on my last night and the meal was delicious. It came very quickly and was presented well. Very large portions however ;) Excellent prices with a diverse menu for everyone - even kids!

The restaurant offers sophisticated dishes and a variety of wines. The food is great and for about 20 euros you have a great meal, another 20 euros for the desert and an average price of 7 euros for a glass of wine. Even if it...may seem pricey compared to a common restaurant it is definitely worth it!More

Honestly, maybe it was an off day, but tonight at the fork was a disaster. we booked dinner at the fork as a special final evening after 6 days at Balvanyos resort. 1) after ordering we waited over 80 minutes for our entree to be...served. During which time we had to request drinks from the bar. 3) after entrees we waited another 80 minutes for the main course to be served, this was delivered after stating our concern to the chef. The restaurant only had 3 tables occupied and probably 10 tables vacant. 4) we were told the service was slow because this was a busy night. There were only 3 tables seated in the restaurant (6 couples were turned away or left because of slow service, and the restaurant was empty) When you pay for fine dining you expect a certain level of service. Drinks offered and served within minutes of arrival, wine pairing to match what was ordered, food to come from the kitchen in a timely manner, tables to be cleared after each course, basics. The basics of fine dining were completely absent tonight. And to be honest The Fork was a real embarrassment to the fine service offered by Balvanyos resort. We recommend the resort highly, but if staying here, don’t waste your time or money at the fork. Spend it on spa treatments and dine at the hotel restaurant and the Gastrolab. If management is reading this, the staff are not to blame. This restaurant suffers from mismanagement. Recommend all dishes if you are prepared to wait!!! This review was not one star because the food was actually really good, deserves a fine dining label. Service and experience do not match.More

Extraordinary, tasteful and sophisticated. We tried the tasting menu and each and every of the nine dishes have been spectacular with matching wines. Pretty expensive but the experience is worth it.

It is a newly established restaurant with a nice design. There are a lot of forks on the wall, as a great decoration. The menu contains a lot of interesting options, like stag, and guinea fowl, ravioli with duck meat etc. It is also expensive,...but it is not a surprise in such a place.The service is exceptional.More

One of the most unexpected experiences, which compliment lifes, usually. Very friendly staff, skilled and helpful. We had deer steak with mashed celery and cranberries sauce, and a very good dry red wine ftom Romanian wineries. As dessert, floating island with vanilla sauce was great!...I do recommend to visit the restaurant, when on the area!More

If you arrive at balvanyos resort it is mandatory to try at least a part of the menu from Fork. It's a short menu but very tasty. Small portions in a very artistic presentation, good wine collection and the personnel very helpful and friendly. The...prices are high but the food deserve all the money. At desert I recommend "strawberry soup".More
