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

We had to wait for an hour and a half for our food. The personnel is not very friendly and the food wasn’t what we expected comparable to the price.

Bad food - pasta aglio oglio e peperoncino with shrimps- no aglio oglio, pasta boiled with water with some cherry tomatoes, no oil no garlic, only waterish pasta. Rise with salmon - rise boiled until it looks like mashed potatoes. Guys, you should change your...chef, immediately! Everyone gives 5 stars for the view, but paying these huge prices for the food I can make myself even better, doesn't worth.More

I couldn't  never imagine that somebody who calls himself owner or waiters, can have such deplorable behaviour towards those who support their business,we, the clients. I will not go into all the details of the unhappy encounter with these people, just ask yourself if will...not be shocked in the following conditions : 1. You have a big dinner, for 35 people ,with all inclusive drinks. 2. At 11 PM the waiters will move away from restaurant your kids presents outside in the garden of the place where we celebrated the birthday of our cildren. Their reason was that they had to close, without telling us this before. 3. In the end, they offended our guests. The boyfriend of the owner, with an aggressiveness difficult to describe in words, jump to our friend threatening him. Everything happened around 11.15PM. Of course we were shocked by this behaviour. 4.  And to complete the horrible experience in this place,  the owner arrived after the scene of his boyfriend urging with us to leave the place, because she paid the waiters until 11PM. We didn't know we need to go away at 11PM or to pay extra the waiters. If we knew it we probably would pay them. For those who intend to go: Do not let yourselves to be fooled by the endearing attitude of the owner at the moment of contracting the services, ask for every detail including the time at which you need to leave. If you are thinking of ordering all inclusive like us, they will do their best to get you out as soon as possible for a substantial profit. Order a la carte !!!!! As comment on what I've written, the owners would probably reply with: The guests were drunk (it was a kids birthday) The guests were jerks You were making noise (it was in normal limits - just discutions and laughing as normal people will have at a celebration. At 11 PM we were 8 people, and we actually intended to leave soon. I'm very curious to see which accusation will launch the owners as a response but also I will follow to see comments from the next ,,victims,, Hope this will not happend and that my comments will raise a alarm bell. A beautiful place but disgusting personnel.More

Not recommended! The people at this restaurant can turn your event into an awful memory. I was surprised to see that at 11 PM the waiters brought the presents outside the restaurant and screaming at our friends, when everybody behaved nicely. They'll accuse you of...different things to justify their behaviour.More

The food and the waiters were nice, but the prices are a bit too much, I think. The view is beautiful, as you can see the city from up above, but that doesn't justify the pricing.
