It's been some time since my last visit here. Again, being here reminds me of how welcoming this place is. And the food, ahhhh...that chicken with Gorgonzola sauce and forest mushrooms along with grilled polenta. Well balanced ingredients, flavour and quantity. Just the perfect pick. Love the fact knowing that I will return.

Great location, nicely decorated but the food is mediocre. I would not recommend the Pardon beef steak or the beef pasta witch did not have a great choice of ingredients. The pizza is decent. Also you should come with cash because the card payment was not working or they didn't have one and you have to ask for the receipt... More

Very nice atmosphere, a unique design in Sibiu. When you enter the restaurant like going back in time, in a good way. And the food is very good, excellent service.

When a friend of mine told me that we will go in a place where we will have our best sauce mussels, I was smiling. We were to Pardon Cafe & Bistro. From the entrance you see that is something different. Retro atmosphere recreating something like a tailor atelier. The second surprise is the chef. Very friendly and ready to... More

Firstly, this place looks really interesting, with old sewing machines as tables and different old decorations on walls, recreating the atmosphere of Sibiu's charming city centre. Secondly, the food is very good and definetly not overpriced. It's a very good choice for a lunch or a dinner in Sibiu.

I really loved the chocholate cake and the "Blue Champagne". Definitelly, one of the places i like in Sibiu. The location is great because is quiet... More

I just dropped into this very special restaurant with Romanian colleagues after a meeting. The interior is very original, with old chairs and sewing machine tables. It's a place with soul. We just ordered hot wine, it was freezing outside. Good wine, but not extraordinary to get the final star. But definitely a place to visit!

Thank Gourmettrollet

In a place where the most different kind of music and scenery meet in a surprisingly armonious way, Pardon Cafe Bistro it's a must on your "to do/see" list when you get to Sibiu. The cafe's tables are former sewing machines and they are named after european cities. Items that remind us of another era, a time when Bell or Felini were alive hang fron the walls and the ceiling is covered in music sheets. That cafe is placed across the street from Thalia Hall and it has the terrase one of the most beatiful streets in town. We are going to let you decide whether this is the perfect place to escape reality or not.
