We came to this restaurant for the sunset drinks and the panoramic view of the city was really magical. Even after dark, Cluj looked beautiful from the top of this heel. However, this was the only positive point of this visit. The staff was really...unwelcoming and annoyed by any questions about the menu - could not tell the difference between a few offered spritz - said they were all the same, just prosecco plus some syrup 😂 The drinks were not really tasty. We did not order any food. If you are lucky to get a small table outside, you will be rewarded by the view. If not, do not stay there as the the service and the menu are not not worth it.More

We went here a rainy day, which proved to be a very good idea. We had coffees in the fresh air, although under roof, with superb views over the city. We can't judge the food. But the ambience on the glass veranda, were lunch guests...are served, looked suitable for important family gatherings. And the views must be staggering in the nights.More

While the food in the restaurant is tasty, the attitude of the personnel needs serious improvement. 1) We were served a different type of drink (not being informed it’s more expensive); 2) At our arrival, we were told that the bed from the suit we...booked needs to be paid extra, if we are going to use it; 3) while clean, the rooms would need some upgrade and repairs, the doors were not closing properly. Overall, not great memories for a birthday…More

Even we didn't expect much as in other high rated restaurants in Cluj we tried having lunch here. It was an excellent idea! The food was great and the service impeccable! I had the best onion soup I ever had! The beef steak with mashed...potatoes with truffles was also an excellent option that my wife had. For desert we had a Papanasi - also very good! We definitely return there when we'll visit Cluj!More

Everything was perfect. From the welcome, the friendliness of the hosts, the food and last but not least the nature and the spectacular view that takes its toll. PS: We came with a 1 year old baby Platters: Grilled salmon, Fritto misto, Tagliatelle with mushrooms...and truffles. We recommendMore

EXTREMELY RUDE MANAGER - TEODORA CUBLESAN. Tried to book a baptism for my son. I had to give a reservation fee to reserve the restaurant but without knowing the prices. I've been told that I will receive the prices in email in due course. Next...day we received the menu options. We were horrified when we saw the prices for the set menus (around 300 RON / person). All the restaurants where I've been in the previous days gave me similar price range menus (150-170 RON / person). So I knew what are the prices in the city with little differences. At this restaurants all the prices were double. We went back to the restaurant to discuss with the management for a cheaper menu (because we didn't needed many things in the menus) and why pay for something that you don't need. We discussed with the manager TEODORA CUBLESAN who sent us the prices and we asked if we can take out a few things that we don't need. She became very upset that how we dare to modify this and why we want to take out stuff from the menu. She became extremely RUDE with us. She also told us if we will take out stuff from the menu she will restrict our staying in the restaurant and we will have to leave after 4 hours. She was talking to us that made us feel guilty and feel bad that we don't want to pay for stuff that we don't want and don't need. She was repeating that it's so expensive because of the view and because of pandemic. I understand that it was difficult during pandemic but charging double than other restaurants is something that I won't understand especially if you received exactly the same services like in other restaurants. ... and the view. Honestly it's NOT a view that you can say "wow". I would have understood if the prices were 5-10% higher, but double. It's just crazy, highway robbery. From this experience all I can say that I was extremely disappointed and mistreated. Earlier in a review a gentleman was complaining that he was mistreated by a waiter when he made a reservation for an outside table. Unfortunately if the management is rude you can't expect something better from the stuff. Definitely I will NEVER return to this restaurant.More

While menu is “medium” long, plates are presented in upper-range style and quantity. Some nice bottles of Romanian wine available. View over Cluj is worthwhile.

We specifically went on site, 2 days prior to reserve an outside table in order to enjoy the view. We were greeted by a condescending waiter (Serbian Ionuț) who told us that somebody else was seated there. When I told him we specifically reserved an...outside table 2 days prior he basically said tough luck. So, I guess you have to be a regular to get a decent treatment. Typical Romanian wannabe high class restaurant.More

Located on a hill in the middle of the city with a wonderful view. Good service. Friendly staff. Medium quality cuisine. Recommended for a romantic evening for the beautiful panorama.

We have, indeed, a nice view over the city, but we’ve never had and served pizza. I think you’re mistaking the restaurant. Thank you

1237/5000 I had the opportunity to live a few days at the pension and at least one meal a day to take it to its restaurant. Sure, I couldn't eat everything on the menu, but at least I noticed that the steaks are generally "dry"...and for that reason, including when you think of "a mangalitza juicy stew" is actually not at all so ... Another unpleasant surprise was that when I wanted an omelette with ham and cheese at lunch, they told me that no breakfast dishes were served anymore ... (as if the omelette was intended only for the breakfast!) ... Due to the position, really enviable and that offers a great panorama over the city, most of the times Saturday and Sunday different events are organized and for this reason the restaurant works "with doors closed" ... and maybe that it would be good to mention this on the site, because I saw cases when people came by taxi and after they released it and he left, they noticed that they came only for sightseeing, without even having meal. It is a family business and for this reason sometimes you can not understand the "flatness" of those who serve ... I think they have something more to work on both the menu and the way they prepare it, in the kitchen.More
