“Tasty!”
Reviewed December 11, 2013 via mobile

The food here is great value and very filling! Ate here twice, first time we both had gulyas with side orders of vegetables and potatoes and the second time had the beef filled pancakes and Transylvanian mushrooms with side orders of veggies. Delicious, filling and a great price!

Incidentally, we have since discovered that the cost of one main course (no sides or drinks) at a Hungarian restaurant in the UK covered the cost of 2 main courses plus 2 side dishes (between us) and 2 beers. I think I know where I'd prefer to be eating...

“Select wine selection”
Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

Good lunch, especially the Hungarian soup, gulash. We only had a glass of red wine each but the waiter was kind enough to give us a wine tasting session...food slightly on the heavy and if you ignore couple of screaming children I could say it was a pleasant lunch experience...I would recommend it as a winter place to eat...after a good day of skiing in Poiana Brasov

“Try the Hortobágyi pancake :)”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

Actually try this as a single course, not as second course because it would be too much :) fresh pancakes filled with ground beef, but tomato sauce and cream on top.
Wonderfull!
Thank you Pilvax for surprising my senses again :)

“Disappointing”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

This is the one of the few times that Tripadvisor reviews steered us wrong. I guess people have different tastes.

This restaurant is very beautiful, we sat downstairs in the wine cellar and the waitress was very nice, but we really did not enjoy the food and it was very expensive compared to other restaurants we have been to in Romania. Some of the dishes we left untouched. They also did not have bottled water that was not carbonated.

One of the best things about eating in Romania is the excellent food at very low prices. This was not. When in Romania, do as the Romanians do... go for the local food in well priced restaurants.

“Nice Hungarian restaurant”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

The restaurant is in the city center within the pedestrian area. It is quite small, originally furnished and with a nice atmosphere. Dishes are really good: I tried a soup and a goulash and both were high quality. My wife had a more elaborate grilled beef filet which was extremely good. Staff was kind and professional and recommended an excellent Hungarian wine. Portions are very generous and we didn't manage to try desserts. Good price/quality: you pay more than in traditional local restaurant but much less than Italian-style restaurants with comparable if not inferior quality. It's definitively where I would come back among the 3 places I tried in Brasov
