About
Located in the old center of Cluj-Napoca City, the main city in the Transylvania region of Romania, Casa Boema is an eclectic restaurant with diverse cuisine. From traditional dishes to international influences, Casa Boema hosts a wide variety of savors and flavors. The award-winning design of the restaurant covers a few coherent styles, giving each room a specific vibe and change of atmosphere. The building was restored and open cuisine in 2012, but the inner garden with one of the most beautiful terraces in town, was one of the hot spots of the bohemians of old times.

Food not as good as suroundings. We had a family dinner the other day. I will be a short as not much to detail. Wine, Gitanes winery from Republic of Moldova: stellar. Food: 90 minutes wait from order to plate. Food: average and expensive.More

Hello, we're sorry you had to wait for so long - it's peak season and the shortage of personnel in this industry is already well-known - we make no exception. We are curious about what dishes you've had that you found average? Thank you for...More

I was warned not to expect too much and I should have listened. Charcuterie was low quality, mortadela inedible. They got my order wrong after having to wait way too much in a nearly empty restaurant. Menu disappointing, gastro pub ish, the side dishes fixed,...cannot be changed, too much use of sous vide as a refection of poor kitchen skills. They could use a menu revamp. It’s a pity as the place is remarkable. Hope it will get better soon.More

Went there on the 03 03 2022 after 18:00 with a middle-to-large group of local and foreign academic colleagues. While the food and the place are great, we had to wait over 1 hour for cooked meals (as well as a whopping 55 minutes for...a mere plate of hummus!), half hours for beers etc. We had to undergo the aggressive attitudes of waiters including physically pushing plates we were eating from, cheekily responding to reminders to bring our orders, constantly forgetting certain orders and not taking into consideration others. If it were not for my colleagues, I would have left at the first of these repeated, unprofessional gestures of contempt and disrespect. Not worth it. PS. the waitress had no idea what they could or could not provide.More

Have been in this place several times while in the city in the last 4-5 years. As time goes by the quality for the food and service have decreased constantly. Last time worst experience didn’t received the meal in over one hour and a half....Comfort (heat) was suboptimal to be decent in expressing myself. This was my last time here. There are a lot of other places to consider.More

Food was good, I would have preferred a bit more flavor to it and expected more textures, my fish plate was all a bit mushy. Service was alright, staff was a bit cold, but it did not bother us. The interior is beautiful, however, and...the menu is interesting. Would come back after some time.More

The courtyard by night is amazing with great illumination and décor. The service is friendly and efficient and the food very international but far from amazing or surprising. Nevertheless its a great choice for a romantic dinner.

Beautiful cortyard, unfortunately we could not try their food because of the rude attitude of Alina. She would have been our waitress and offered only the app version of their menu and was not at least intereated in serving us. The loss of the restaurant...and maybe ours?More

We found food for my selective eater son, and we got it as part of fast, attentive and friendly service. The dishes were all high quality, innovative and delicious. The music was played too loudly, preventing conversation. Non-smoking seating was not offered, and I had...a chain smoker behind me. Highly recommended restaurant, we would return!More

I used to eat here before, but seems the pandemic changed everything. The dorada i had was minuscule, half of a woman's hand, and big amounts of side dish, polenta and pea piuree. The veal rasol was eatable, but nothing impressive. For the price you...pay you should get at least a tasty food. Tje service was good, but it s not enough.More

Waited more than one hour for some pancakes. The bartender used a straw to refresh my beer that I was waiting for more than 20 minutes. The restaurant was empty

After waiting for more than one and a half hour to get our food, the waiter came to us and apologised for the food being late. We understood and said we are waiting bit longer. After more than 2 hours the waiter came back and...said he doesn't know what's happening in the kitchen, but he doubts our food will ever come. The same thing happened to other two tables near us. We used to eat there often, but now i'm just sorry i recommended this restaurant to others during time.More
