We had a wonderful meal in the traditional Romanian dinner. The portions were a good size. The had a live band that played at the perfect volume to hear the music while not disrupting conversation.

We had an unplanned dinner at Vatra Neamului and it turned out to be quite enjoyable. We went for simple local dishes: zeama, plăcintă, papanași. They were neither the fanciest nor the most expensive items on the menu but they were tasty and fresh. Service...More
