The restaurant has outdoor and indoor tables (this ones equipped with blankets in case you need it). It's a good place to have dinner with family or friends.

The menu is written in Romanian and English and the staff speaks English as well (the one responsible for our table was very friendly, but another waitress was not nice with us). They accept cash and card and it is possible to split the bill (but then choose just one payment method).

The food is delicious, that's for sure. The prices are not the cheapest that you can find in the city but I don't think it was an absurd. Soups from 13 to 18 lei, desserts around the same price and they have typical Romanian food.

We were a group of 4 people and we ordered two different portions of potatoes, grilled vegetables, lemonade, water, chicken soup with semolina balls, fish, cabbage and salată de vinete (an eggplant cream served with bread) and the total was 118,50 RON.

Delicious food at affordable prices accompanied with a quick and professional serving.
The only minus is that the portions are way to large.
The location itself is very convenient located, a big plus consists in the big parking place provided.

Really nice traditional restaurant. Opted for goulash which was really good and came with chunky bread to soak up the flavours. Nice building in a small garden off the main thoroughfare. Would have returned but not possible due to time constraints.

This restaurant has good food but not worth dealing with the staff. I found that you get treated differently if you come alone vs coming as couple/group. I was told that I could stay to eat only if I hurried up because the restaurant was reserved. The restaurant was practically empty. Just another example of Romania lacking customer service. Don’t go there if you’re an American.
