We had as the main course the "Zamă de fasole with ciolan afumat" and "Zamă de vită". Both of the soups were great. On the second course we had "Pui cu ciuperci" and "Tigaie iute", very, very tasty with plenty food on the plates. The salads were also very good (cabbage salad and beet salad). Not expensive overall. Pleasant atmosphere... More

It was one of my favourite culinary experiences in Romania so far. Tried ciorba de fasole, sarmale (similar to polish 'gołąbki' but smaller) and papanasi as a dessert, which tastes exactly as it looks like. It is sweet, wonderful and has thousands of calories, but it is totally worth it. Service was great, I can recommend this restarurant to anyone.

After 40 minutes waiting for the main course "gulash" we received a very small dish composed by 4 small pieces of meet (70gg max) and a spool of sauce. After we complained with the waiter, she asked to order another main course. Reading the reviews and comments from other tripadvisor travellers we discovered we shared the same experience of other...

We had to wait a long time, and as reward we received very small and expensive dishes of a questionable Gulash. They insisted to sell us more food but we decided to quit. The waitress was kind but it was evident that she wanted to take advantage of us as foreigners and wanted to sell multiple dishes. We spent 50... More

Good food, good services. Enjoyable evening. The background music was a good choice, a chill-out tune. Give it a try!

I have been to this restaurant twice and on both occasions I have been treated to great food, service and value. It is a bit difficult to find but worth doing so. Both times there was more food than I could eat so I had leftovers for dinner the next day.

We ate here last week. The restaurant wa empty at 8pm, the waiters speak english and they are really nice. The food is good enough but I expected more. And of course it's cheap...
