Reviewed August 17, 2013

I was lucky enough to vist Cluj in July this year and came across this well placed center of town restaurant. The food was excellent and had a friendly atmosphere which was helped along by some great weather.
Would vist again. 10/10

“Good food, very attentive service!”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

Livada has a huge garden terrace where you can "get lost' in summer. The service is extremely attentive, and the cuisine is Romanian with lots of innovations, twists and emphasis on quality.

“Splendid”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

The atmosphere rating depends on how you make it be. I gave it 5 stars because of me feeling great there.
Anyway, great service, great food, nice decorations.
I like what they did to the old place.

“Best family restaurant in Cluj-Napoca but needs improvement”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

We haven't visited this location since the "Taverna" days. The playground was kind of crummy at that time so, for a family outing with young kids, it wasn't much of an attraction.

The renovations really make a difference however! It is probably the only place in Cluj where parents can enjoy a meal while the kids are well entertained on the new playground and have plenty of space to explore.

And now, here are my tips for Livada to live up to its full potential (hope management sees this )
1. You attract lots of families with young children yet there is no children menu. I know this is lacking everywhere, but this venue really calls for one. At the very least, offer a pizza menu. There are far too few choices for children

2. This place is overpriced. Sorry, it is. I've eaten all over town and there is no reason for the soups to be this expensive, nor the grilled chicken thighs, nor anything else we tried. I expected better or bigger portions but got neither.

3. Instead of the balloons, which pop or get snatched by other kids and many times create conflict and tears, why not offer paper place matts with crayons for children? Initially I thought the balloons were a nice touch, but then I saw the headaches they can create.

Overall, it was an enjoyable experience , food was fine for the most part- those who ordered the "ciolan" raved about it and everyone enjoyed the papanasi. Service was also good. With a few improvements, this place could really be top notch!
