“Good value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

One of the best restaurants in town. Good quality for the money you pay. Central location, a bit hard to find, but it has its own parking area.

“Worth the walk away from main square”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013

Our hotel, Casa Rozelor, has Transylvania as one of two restaurants they reccommend. So that plus the favorable reviews on Trip Advisor, prompted us to try it our first night in Brasov.

The food was well prepared & the house red wine was good and reasonably priced. Service was a bit spotty but they were busy at the time we came in for dinner.

We should have returned here our second and last night in town, but we decided to try the other suggested place. Unfortunately there was at least a fifteen minute wait at Sergiana so we desisted.

Transylvania is a good bet for a decent meal in pleasant surroundings.

“Just OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

The food was ok. Really good value. I just have a pet peeve when restaurants bring you bread without your having ordered it and then have the audacity to charge you for it. It's annoying and sours me immediately towards the place. I had dinner at Sergiana's yesterday and it was much better.

“Don't miss it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

Not too far from the city center and situated on a quiet street. From the moment we entered, the staff made us feel at home. Excellent Romanian dishes, good wine selection. Don't miss the papanasi, but order together with the meal, this place doesn't serve frozen food. The service was outstanding. We returned next evening - why look for another restaurant?
