VIA restaurant is a hidden jewel located in the city center. The design of the place is simple but classy. The presentation and flavour are great. Some dishes are a bit expensive for Romanian standards. Overall it is a very good experience.

I have been to this restaurant several times and it always impresses me. The service is good and the food always comes out tops. I have sat both inside and outside the restaurant (one time my companions were smokers) but either is recommended.

Tried the beef. One of the most delicate recipies. It was long cooked at long temperature. Initially I thought it was macerated for at least 5 days, but I was wrong. Just slow cooking. The price is acceptable for such services. I'll be back :)

We went at Via in a Wednesday evening, a group of four friends. We shared two appetizers and had different main courses. Everything was great - beef steak, tagliatelle, pork ribs. Great service too. Excellent wines (one Sauvignon Blanc and one Syrah, both from Transylvania area). One small comment: although very good wines on the list, they are a little... More

Great news for everyone that was waiting for old great menu that Via used to offer to come back. The quality and delicious taste is back and you can again enjoy seriously the best food in town. If you take Yorkshire pudding with beef and Via lemonade you will feel like in heaven. Great job Via!

A very good choice for a business lunch or for a more quite experience. The music is of good taste and not to loud, the interior is very well balanced, defined by a simple elegance, yet you don't feel like anything else should be added. The food, well... the food is awesome. I enjoyed every bit of the Yorkshire Pudding... More

In my opinion this is the best if not top 3 restaurants in Cluj, its cosy, simple and the food is extraordinary. Its not super fancy, they just pay a lot of atention to detail. I love it :)

Very nice cozy location tucked away in the center of town. I recommend you try the wild game stew as well as the ribs.
