The „machineries“ make this place a „must see“ on Cluj's map. The atmosphere is very intersting and pump up ones imagination.

The place looks amazing, but the service is an absolute nightmare. We've waited for an hour to have our order taken and more than two hours to get the food. And when the food was finally brought, the order was incomplete and the food was...More

Saturday evening they had no variety of beers, although they have a long list... We got the ordered meals after more than 1hour and food was forgetable. A fast food reastaurant can offer better meals!

The food we ordered was quite good, no comments there. But the service was horrible. We waited for ages until the waitress brought our food, drinks, our check.

Went for a drink on a recommendation. Intruiging interior motorised decorations. Beautiful beer garden. Enjoyed the place so much we forgot about dinner and just drank. Unique experience

Apart from the steampunk decor, which was a bit over the top and not terribly imaginative, this is an average bar, with good cocktail choice, but limited beer and food menus. Fine for a quick drink while passing, or a meeting point that everyone's heard...More

I was quite curious about it, I had read it was full of kinetic sculptures moving, and the atmosphere was very steampunk. Turned out to be quite average pub, with a sad mannequin riding a bike. Was surprisingly quiet on a Thursday night. Didn't try...More

Enigma Cluj is a pub and bistro place and terrace, that you will find on Iuliu Maniu street, at number 12, in the old town center of Cluj-Napoca. In October 2015 Enigma Cafe reopened its doors after undergoing almost a two year-long redesign project. The transformation was long awaited but the end result was worth it. Seven moving mechanisms were created and tens of static sculptures that ornate the entire bar area. Enigma is touted as the first kinetic steampunk bar in the world.
