“Good food, not so nice personnel”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

I have mixed feelings about the rstaurant Nora in Timisoara. The food is very good. Whatever my friends and I have eaten there was good, very good desserts, nice atmophere on th terrace to have a drink and chat with friends. It's nice inside the restaurant as well, but outside is really
nice, a very rustic atmosphere.

A lot of tables to choose from, both outside and inside, you can make reservations if you plan on bringing friends there for a special occasion.

On the other hand the service is poor. Unfriendly waiters, some of them look extremely bored, one of them especially just throws an unfriendly "what do you want" - it happened that we ended up at a table assigned to him several times and it was almost always the same. A colleague of his was friendlier on other occasions when we didn't end up where the rude waiter was serving, but I must say that, unfortunately, service is definitely not Nora's strong point.

Food however is really good. Quite a lot of food, even though not very cheap. We have also ordered food from Nora at work and it never happened that something didn't taste good. Lots and lots of things on the menu, so many things to choose from, so that sometimes it gets really hard to make up your mind and order. I definitely recommend the food at Nora.

“Very good food”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

The food is great, service is good, but you always have to make a reservation.
The traditional plates are really good and the portions are huge.

“Nora - this is a nice restaurant”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

We went several times in the last years at Nora for pleasure or to meet our friends from Timisoara. The staff is friendly, the service is good, the prices are acceptable, depending on what you choose, and the food was always nice. We usually eat on the terrace that is very busy most of the time, but they have enough waiters I would think because you don't need to wait to much until you're noticed and served. The toilets are kept clean despite heavy traffic. You can go dressed up elegant or casual.

“Clasic therefore go ...”
Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

Even if not situated in the center of Timișoara this restaurant is Always full. Make a reservation to be sure. Not quite a place for veggies but Something they can also find.
Try the steaks, the romanian specialties (ask for "mici") or the different plateau with special sauceges. Good and fresh local beer from Timișoara. A must go...from my point of view.

“Special place in town”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Nora Restaurant is one of the best places where you can eat delicious, traditional and special dishes in Timisoara. There is also a large no smoking area at the first floor.
