Very good food and friendly staff (especially Valentin!). Clearly deserves 5 stars. But 2.5h for 3 salads, 3 desserts and 1 coffee is a bit too much, especially with small children.

We had a very enjoyable wine tasting there that consisted of five different Romanian wines, accompanied by cold cuts and cheeses. We also enjoyed their wonderful chocolate dessert! The setting was beautiful with a view of the citadel. Both Valentin and Resvan excelled in their...attentiveness and in the wine presentation. We learned a lot about the wines and the region. Overall, a delightful experience. Highly recommend it!More

Oradea surprised me with its more upscale restaurants and his was one of them. I toured the castle with a work company and had lunch here. The service was very good and they served a simple starter that was very nice and fresh bread with...a garlic spread. Main course was duck breast and leg - really nice with cauliflower pure. Dessert was more on the sampler side of a carrot cake but still very good. If you're visiting the castle I can recommend a visit at this place.More

I had to meet some foreign friends who came in Oradea and I proposed to them Meridian Zero. It was definitely the best choice, we had fun, the waiter was speaking in their native language, and the atmosphere was so cozy! Plus, they have my...favourite wine brand and delicious food. Absolutely recommend. 👌🏻More

Today it was my second time at this restaurant. We had some burgers and gnochi - gnochi was really tasty, but the burgers were average, nothing special for that price, small portion of french-fries and no sauce. The service and experience was also average -...bored waiter, without too much interest in making us feel comfortable. At some point we could feel him even a little bit arrogant. However, what disappointed us was the cleanliness level - one glass on the table had lots of lipstick on it, which is unacceptable for a restaurant like this, and I think everyone can agree with me. First time I've been here the waitress was better, but still, far from what a waitress at a restaurant of this genre should be like. That time I had a risotto which was not bad, but again - average. I had much better ones in the past. To summarize, after twice the experiences I had here, I can say - no, they do not have bad food - it is OK - but it is not worthy for the price. The restaurant is very pricy for the level of food they offer, and they should pay more attention to details such as the experience (with reference to the waiters) and to cleanliness level (look for dirty glasses).More

Perfectly located inside the fortress, from the outside it looks upmarket and expensive, but while the food and service matches appearences- the prices do not, they are very reasonable and much better than the other restaurant located inside the fortress.

We had our dinner at this beautiful restaurant which was situated in a fortress. The service was amazing. The waitress knew the menu & had great suggestions. We tried all her suggestions and it didn’t disappoint us at all. It was so delicious that we...were speechless. Highly recommend this restaurant & will be on our list for every visit to Oradea.More
