“Cheap and delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014 via mobile

This is a great dinner option conveniently located a few streets from the Old Town square. Prices are much more reasonable than in the touristy streets. The menu is large, portions are generous and everything we ordered was delicious. There are separate floors for smokers and non-smokers. Wait staff were friendly and helpful. We went back a second night and would certainly go again if back in Brasov.

“Good place for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

Good place to eat, nothing fancy, but food was good. You can have very affordable lunch menu for only 15 lei. Located in the old city, cozy atmosphere. Family restaurant, good for dinner time as well. Went there 3 times and do not regret that. Food is traditional, homy style.

“Enjoy local dishes, at an affordable price, in a smoke free environment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2014

During our stay in Brasov, we wanted to try some local Transylvanian/Romanian food. Initially we went to Sergiana Restaurant as it was on the same block as the Aro Palace Hotel where we stayed. However when we opened the outer door, we were overwhelmed by the smell of cigarrete smoke. So we decided to look for another restaurant that served local dishes. Based on Tripadvisor's reviews we decided to look for Restaurant Transilvania. It was not easy to find as it was on a quiet street outside of the pedestrianized shopping area, but we were lucky to meet a Brasov resident (former SIngaporean) who showed us the way. We were certainly happy that the restaurant was smoke free. simply decorated but had lots of local dishes in the menu. We had a salad, a grilled fish, a mixed meat platter, breaded mushrooms, bread and water to share amongst 5 of us. The bill came to 105 lei (about Euro 24), that is really affordable. The food was delicious, the service was good and the pricing was inexpensive. Highly recommended for those who like smoke free environment and a taste of local dishes.

“Great value and good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2014

the location, prices and excellent service are some of the great features of this restaurant. the food arrived soon after we ordered it. we had the cream of vegetables soup and the transilvania platter and both were delicious. my daughter dropped her fork and before we even had the chance to ask, a new one was handed to her. the restaurant is very close to the main square and to romania's narrowest street.
