Amazing gem in the heart of Cluj! If you are a foodie or just simply looking to recreate a memorable culinary experience from some of the exquisite restaurants in Paris, Montreal, New York or San Francisco, look no further. Cabinet de Vin&Cocotte delivers beyond expectations...with a variety of dishes perfectly crafted and guaranteed to delight the most discerning palate. The wagyu beef, cooked medium rare, simply melted in my mouth.More

The food wasn’t special at all. The quality of the food wasn’t according to the price. The local is not intimate, too many tables in such a small place. You couldn’t speek about anything because the tables are too near and you get disturbed by...the other customers. The serving was good.More

A few days ago I was looking for a nice restaurant in the heart of Cluj where I can spend a perfect night with my girlfriend, but.... After I read a lot of reviews about this place I thought it would be a wise decision...to spend a wonderful night out. So, me and my girlfriend just arrived there, we've been sitted at our table and the show begun. A supposed romantic night just turned into a strugle of talking at a high volume because 70% from the space of the restaurant was booked for a big party. Of course they were talking too loud, so, in my opinion, the manager or whoever talked to me at the phone should have warned me about the big party and about the sound, but this thing never happened. Ok...after the unexpected incident, we were ok, we were trying not to ruin our night just because of the sound. The wine menu looked pretty good, but a problem was the fact that they were selling like 4 or 5 wines at the glass, and the rest of them at the bottle. Ok...I understand, but not everybody is able to drink a whole bottle of wine. Moreover, I ordered Mahi Mahi, which requested a white wine, while my girlfriend ordered the lamb which, of course, requested a red wine, so it would be impossible for us having a bottle which could fit with both of the dishes.Talking about some other drinks in the menu... too pricey. I had a glass of a spirit drink which price was 35 lei, and in the same night, again, in a cozy place I had the same drink with 13 lei!!! Now, talking about the food, 35 lei (because I can't remember the real price, but I am sure I am pretty close) or more for potatoes with cheese...no way! You can have this side in so many other restaurants for less than a half from this price, and also the taste of these potatoes was nothing special. The appetizer was a kind of beet risotto, too pricey again, but in my opinion, the worst thing about the food menu is that the main course is not coming together with the side. You have to pay separately for them, and than is gonna be very expensive eating this food. When we arrived at the dessert section, again, when we saw the prices we just called for our check and we left for having our desserts in another place-best decision. The service? Exept the bussing and reseting part, the service was terrible. Because of the big table, our waiter was not giving such a good importance to us, "just 2 sitting in a corner". Maybe we caught the wrong time in being there. Because of the wines I might recommend this place, but talking about the food and the price...NEVER AGAIN! I've been in so many restaurants in Cluj, and places all around the world, I know the food and the price range, but this experience was a terrible one.More

Wow!!!! Amazing staff!!! Well it couldn’t have been any better than it actually was! From the very first step in I was amazed by the decorations inside and I was amazed how welcome the staff makes you feel, they actually open the door each time...you want to get in or out. Now.... about the food... I gave 5 stars so I have no complaints about the taste, texture or aspect, it is indeed a fine dining cuisine restaurant so... try it! You will find a very welcoming place and staff. There was a thing though that caught my attention and did not blend in the space... I dare you to discover it ...More

As soon as you enter, from the warm welcome of the employees to the most amazing menu. Being from Switzerland, I have had great meals but this by far surpasses anything I’ve had in a very long time. This place is a real gem. I...started with the trio of the foie Gras and had the snails and the wagyu A5, firstly, the fact that they have such beauty ... and all of it from the great Romanian local wine to the food that melts in your mouth like butter, this place is an absolute must. The prices are amazing, you won’t find better as a whole experience. Give your tastebuds an experience you both won’t forget :)More

I walked around the city centre trying to find a nice place to eat and saw this beautiful restaurant. Actually it's beauty captured me, but it's very good rating drew me inside. And then it suprised me moment after moment. The interior is amazing, the...service is charming and very attentive and the wine is great. I would habe wished for a few more open wines, but it was very good already. And then the food started. First course foie gras - so amazing I was already worried about to strong a start that couldn't be kept up. But they kept delivering. Second course porc with polenta - great, great pork and the best polenta I have had in ages. Third course - a desert in form of an apple. Had that in Paris with the famous Cedric Golet - this was even better. Beautifully crafted and very tasteful. Thank you for this amazing evening. :-)More
