“Good food, convenient location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014 via mobile

Party of 6, we had breakfast (or rather brunch) here. The food was very good. The menu has a wide selection from the Romanian cuisine.

Our waiter didn't smile too much, and she did mix up one of the drinks, but overall the service was good.

“Traditional Romanian cuisine”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014

First of all the location is great, at half the distance between the historic center of Brasov and the train station. The decorations are rustic, a bit too rustic, but the outdoor setting is nice. The stuff was very friendly and prompt.
I went there twice while in Brasov, and culinary speaking I had a great experience and an average one. The food is mainly traditional Romanian food, so a bit greasy and heavy. The first time I had the grilled mutton pastrami with polenta which was delicious, never had a better one, the only problem is the restaurant doesn't provide knifes that can actually cut so I had a bit of a struggle and it worth it.
But the second time I unfortunately choose the grilled spare ribs with BBQ sauce and farmers potatoes. The potatoes were ok, but the ribs were greasy with almost no meat, only tallow, the fat actually was dropping from the meat, it was awful, and I felt sick the next day because of it. So I surely not recommend the ribs, I never has such a bad experience until now.

“One of the best restaurants i've ever eaten in”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2014

This is an incredible restaurant. We luckily stumbled past it as we were staying around the corner. The farmers potatoes, the Greek feta salad and the countryside sausages were all mind blowing. I got so fat while in Romania, purely from eating here twice a day almost every day. I still have regret for the days/meals that i didn't eat here.
