The greatness of this place is definitely in the decor and ambiance. Full Belle Époque splendour. A little smokey at any time of day to really enjoy the food, but that's pretty common in Romania. The food is pretty good. We went a few times and tried a few different dishes. It's nothing to write home about, but you probably won't leave wanting to head down the street to McDonalds.

The atmosphere is taking you to the Bucharest in the early 90's. The food is tasty; the atmosphere is great and the waiters are friendly. The price is resonable for the location and for that service. I would definately go there again.

The atmosphere and the old style really tend to take you in the past . We liked the feeling . The food is great and the menu has a few courses that you will not find in another restaurant in Brașov. Try the gratinated cheese pancakes for dessert :) . They are really good !

We found this place by chance walking on the main boulevard. Even it did not look so great in the beginning (the place was nearly empty on SAT at around 7PM), we were hungry enough to take a seat and look at the menu. The look at the menu was not so easy as anybody can expect, cause the place is designed to be an old fashioned cafe-cabaret-restaurant place and the lamps are not delivering too much light. I used a workouround with my mobile flash :) We ordered soups and main courses, all was delicious and really well decorated on the plate. The service from the waiter was really professional. We finished the dinner with a variety of desserts at the end reaching the great Food-Orgazmical feelings :) P.S. Little naughty pictures of naked women on the walls of toilettes just evoked the great historical atmosphere of 30s of the last century.

Very nice decor and atmosphere. This place simply has a soul and a history. A good variety of breakfast menues to choose from. And, again, the interior design, with old newspapers and photos, the saloon like chairs - all that makes you feel in a special way. I always eat here in the morning or drink coffee when in town
