We waited for the food almost 2 hours and the restaurant was empty! They have maximum 30% of the menu! The employees are ok but too few employees!

Very strongly recommended by the tourist information office as the most authentic Romanian eatery in town, but didn't live up to expectations. Menu only in Romanian, staff a bit offhand, live musicians lacking energy or enthusiasm, food OK. Main plus was a lovely bottle of...Rara Neagra wine.More

The place is nice, and the music band is amazing, food is not that good and employees do not speak English, spent considerable amount of time trying to ask for a clean water but failed.

History, romanian feelings, perfect food, warm hosts- don't miss " coltunasi". Special thanks for Ionut, who guided us to visit the underground part of the old restaurant: A place full of history, like all the Iasi City. We will come back here for sure!

I organized a business dinner here, with partners from several foreign countries. Everyone was very happy with the food, the wine, and the atmosphere. We had live music, Romanian food and "tuica" in the underground galleries. I think it's a very good restaurant for those...wanting to have a taste of the traditional Romanian dishes and drinks. The service was excellent. It didn't feel cheap but it worth the money.More

We went here for dinner and what a disaster it was. We ordered soup which turned out to be bors even though the menu clearly said it was soup. Bors is sour and for me it has a foul smell. We refused the soup and...asked for another soup on the menu which also had bors… so we didn’t have soup/bors, but we ordered an appetizer (charcuterie board with veggies), and that was ok as far as taste, but it made us sick. I saw that some here mentioned about the cook not washing her hands… I believe it. Don’t go there. Save yourself a stomach ache. The staff is lazy and don’t speak English.More

you do not feel like a customer, rather as a golden duck. the singers will take any possible chance to make some money on you, the service is slow and preferential, and the food is average. the restaurant has a huge potential to be truly...something special, but is not, is more a provincial pub.More

I’ve been planning on coming to this place for a while now, but when I finally got here, really random, I was surprised. The food was unbelievable tasty. I ordered a soup and for the secound course I had mashed potatoes and chicken pané. The...soup reminded me of my grandma’s soups - and this is good thing, no restaurant in which I’ve ever eaten soup reminded me of that. Also, the quantity of the food was just perfect and the prices - cheap ones for tasty food. About the drinks - I had a lemonade, which is really tasty by the way, but the place also has a large range of wines (local ones especially). One aspect that I didn’t quite like was the fact that the waiter was a bit nervous and got the check wrong, but in the end it was fine, you could tell he was in his first days of working there. All in all, I really recommend the place - either for a family gathering, for a business meeting or for a simple lunch/ dinner with friends/the loved one if you like traditional food.More

The cook (a not to old lady) came out of the restroom and directly put her hands on our daughter and then went out to the kitchen without washing her hands. When being confronted, she said that she is washing her hands a lot of...times per day and doesn't need to wash her hands after taking a dump. So, really gross. I won't ever eat here again. Too bad, because the chicken soup was good.More
