Had lunch there a couple of days ago. Very surprised when I get the "specials" menu with two cooks listed and told which one was on duty.

The steak was yummy. Waitress very friendly and accommodating. Outdoor patio very pleasant but in need of a remodel.

Will definitely visit again to try another delicious dish.

16 at a table,booked in advance garden was wonderfully clean and tidy extremely pleasant spent 1120,30 lei approx 275,- €. food a-la carte well presented and very fresh and tasty. the waitress had approximately 30 people to serve all a-la carte!! our meal took 1H 40 Mins to arrive and when we asked to see the manager the girl returned to the table with tears in her eyes,as to why we can only guess!!! Eventually the manager came after most of us had received our main course and when asked why 1 staff member for so guest said" this is how it is" The girl did not only have to take the orders for drinks but prepare then and serve them as well and the kitchen was miles away. the design of the crockery only enabled her to carry two meals at any one time! When asked why extra staff were not availeable to serve such a large number of a-la carte meals(16) the female managers response is this is the quiet period of the day and we have only minimum staffing levels( which is fine the staff that are working including the manager pull thier resources and work as a team) further to this the managerin then had the affront to put the blame on us the guests ofr having ordered a-la carte meals in an a-la carte restaurant????This was further annoying because the managerin had been sat at a table with friends taking her seat at a tableabout 10m away from ours making us wait to place our drink and food order insisting she and her friends be served first and afterwards going into her office, knowing full well that we were unhappy about the delay and that the very nice and pleasant waitress was no longer able to cope with the volume of a-la carte client orders! Further to this we recieved No apology from the managerin or compensation for our patience! We informed her that instead of sitting eating and drinking with her friends or scratching her behind in the office, that it might have been better to help her staff as she was fully aware of the circumstance being only a couple of tables away from ours!!With this idea she was also none receptive and told us this is not her job???!!! At the end of the meal we tipped the waitress 25 € and the manager for her unfriendly and unprofessional behaviour becomes a comment on tripadvisor! so to close this short message food good, staff hard working and unappreciated, management a waste of space needing to be educated on service industry professional behaviour and customer respect! ps i still have the bill to prove my visit and many of my party are also going to post comments on other sites!

Surprised to find this nice restaurant in a quite run-down area of Craiova. Very popular with localc and tourists/foreign workers. Friendly staff, extensive European menu, pretty good value. Outside covered tables and a decent 2 pieces band. Worth a visit if you are stuck in this town!
