After reading about this place and seeing the pictures online, I went there quite excited and with my expectations quite high. The place is ok. You can see that the owner tried to do something different. Unfortunatelly I think he spent all his money on...the design and promotion, and had no money left to invest in hiring good people/service. What other people wrote before me is true. The quality of the service is so poor, that it´s hard to keep on having a good time there. I left dissapointed and would not recommend it to my friends.More

Came here on recommendation of a nearby restaurant which was full! If you want a drink I’m sure it would be ok, but if you want to eat, I would seriously reconsider. The food we had was unappetising and overpriced for the quality. The vegeburger...which I had consisted of a burger bun, slice of cheese, soggy iceberg lettuce, cold mushrooms and grated cheese! The worst food we have had on our whole trip.More

The food was awful considering the relatvely high price,on par with other renowned pubs in the city. I ate a burger and the meat wasn't great and on top of that it contained a small piece of bone, which is unacceptable. Also, the space inside...is really crammed and it was very hot inside and no ppssibility to cool down the atmosphere.More

So i saw them you tube video and wanted to visit. This is an escape from the normal restaurant decor. Steampunk object and the secret garden really makes for a spesial visual experience I would highly recommend it. Prices are affordable and food is good.

Came here three years ago and it was special. Edgy, demanding, unique and dynamic interior design complemented by a good service, good drinks and attitude. Nearly all that has gone. What’s left is a bar that’s dancing by memory. The passion long forgotten. The staff...seem tired and lacklustre. The interior no longer impresses, it’s as tired as the staff. The drink choice is moribund. I opted for a bottle of Stella Artois. There wasn’t any draught beer available. Stella Artois is to a beer enthusiast is what rum & coke is to a cocktail connoisseur. The outside is still quite cute. There’s that, I guess.More

It’s cool to sit outside, superb. I ordered just a drink and I enjoyed it a lot. I will come back just for the mojito.

As an architect i rooted for a visit here from the moment it opened. Saw it today. Total disapointment. No animation of the steampunk themed design. I don’t recomend.

Heavily designed with an industrial Steampunk theme Enigma is an interesting place to see. I would say the design is more of a pub than a cafe, and the service is more reflective of a pub. The food presentation is simple, but the flavours are...very good. There is a large backyard with seating which is very appealing, however like everywhere in Romania it is full of heavy smokers. Drinks are what you would expect, the servers are efficient but could be more attentive. Worth a visit.More
