We went to restaurant Vanatorul for lunch, and tried the fish trilogy and Salad du Chef, which contained deer pastrami! This was something special for me, because I have never tried this kind of meat before. The salad was delicious, and besides the pastrami and vegetables, it also contained nougatine! What a lovely combination! Make sure to try the Papanasi... More

You can get a nice selection of unique food here! I opted for the Bear but our appetizer also contained Pheasant, Boar, Deer, and Bear. The best part of the restaurant is the service and the flambes! The food is decent and prices steep however you don't have much choice in the area. If you want traditional Romanian, don't go... More

Great location but average food and service. The soup was very watery with a bland flavour. The main course was good but the vegetables contained so much garlic they were difficult to eat.

We were at the Restaurant Vanatorul for dinner and have tasted a symphony of different Romanian appetisers which were very good. For the main course we have had wild bore, dear, bear meat and wild duck breast all together tasted very fine.

My husband was delighted about the pancakes there and i had my favourite dessert: a lave cake with vanilla ice cream and mango compote. The view it's also very nice. Prices above average but it reflects the quality of the service and of the food.

The restaurant is placed a little bit away from the main road and the traffic, which is nice, and from the terace you get a lovely view of the mountain. The food is very good (mostly hunting specialities, but you can find other traditional dishes also) and the portions are large. The atmosphere is nice. The only problem is you... More
