Meal was decent, above average. We had sea food, pork, pasta etc. All were OK. Friendly service, but do not expect much from matching beer types with proper beer glasses :) Music was way too loud, but we did not asked for changes, so it...might be the case that they adjust the volume if required. The place of full (Thursday night), so you may consider making a reservation.More

I’ve been there plenty of times and before my last two visits I would have recommended the place as being the best place in town. The food is on spot, drinks the same, the serving staff is incredibly friendly and accommodating, making you feel welcomed...but in my last to visits I have encountered a really rude manager or the person in charge that made me changed my mind. Her attitude left me speechless. I had a reservation for 5 people but we had more people joining us, and when we asked if we can gave more chairs she said no, because everything is full. Completely understandable, but we spotted some chairs at the table next to us, and we asked her if we can by any chance take those and she said yes. We toot the chairs and then she said we can take them, but not to put at out table. As she was joking with us! That was incredible rude and definitely not professional at all, her attitude being incredibly arrogant and not accommodating at all. In the end we didn’t argue on that and left it that way. Out waitress was trying to find other alternatives and help us in any way she could, trying to explain the situation and why we can’t have more chairs at the same table, even though it wasn’t her job, and I really appreciate the fact she was so accommodating. The manager could have explained that in the first place and avoid the entire situation. The previous night the same manager argued with another customer, shouting and swearing, making everyone incredibly uncomfortable. She is also telling off the staff in front of other customers, that being really unprofessional. Coming from the same industry, I understand how challenging the service industry can be but there’s no excuse for her attitude. I would have given one star because of this experience but it’s a shame because everything else is spotless and an encounter like this can ruin the entire experience!More

Cozy place, delicious food. Thumbs up for everything - from the tasty food to the lush, cozy place (on the terrace). Me and my husband had tortellini quatro formaggi and penne al forno with ragu sauce. Absolutely great! And the dessert...🤤 mouthwatering! Lava cake and...apple pie with vanilla ice cream (you have to try it, it's divine!). Good job, guys! Keep it up 👍More

We we're visiting Craiova and we come to Craft for lunch, as i ate here before some perfectly cocked ribs. The all dishes were good and tasty. The chicken with sweet potatoes and red wine was so good. The Craft burger had the best caramelized...onions i ever had. The drinks were good too: we have some cocktails, cream coffe ( very good). The watermelon fresh was not exactly what it needed. It is made with a syrup that does not bring too much watermelon in it. PS: they have the best hummus in Ro.More

I was welcomed in the door by a friendly waiter and from then on the experience here was excellent - I was offered suggestions and in the end had an excellent meal! I did not get the gentleman’s name but I was impressed by the...very “un-Romanian” service! The pork cutlet was freshly cooked and deliciously tender.More

I use to go there to have a good wine and something to eat next to the drink, but I had more than this- the best ribs in town, both pork or veal and more. The wine selection is very good and the service is...very good. I recommend itMore

I made a reservation by phone on the 13th of February for the 14th of February for 18 00 for 2 people . When we got there they told us they don't have a table for us and we were invited to the bar instead.... I asked them to check our reservation and they confirmed we have one but they said to us : we are not going to waste a table for 2 people ! Then we left the restaurant . I am 50 years old and I travel quite a lot but I never ever had this problem before in my entire life !!!More

I enjoy a lot being here. Given the fact that I'm a native of Craiova I come quite often to this place. The atmosphere is quite friendly, the staff is OK. The place feels very cozy, music it's not to loud, you can have a...decent conversation without shouting.You have a good selection of drinks, from wines to cocktails. Food is well above average for what Craiova has to offer.More

An excellent meal at Craft. The menu had several nice options making it hard to choose. Pine nut hummus with bread was our appetizer and the hummus was very good. We needed more bread to not let it go to waste. Our server wanted to...argue the point as it was too close to the arrival of the entrees, but agreed. The burgers were good and those who selected the airline chicken breast with mashed sweet potatoes were delighted with the choice. We especially appreciated the vibe. Not too noisy for conversation and a nice atmosphere.More

Good choice for lunch. Food is tasty, atmosphere nice. Services could be improved. It takes time to get your dishes and waiters have to ask the cook what is ready quite often.
