It is worth going up and see all the city below! It really offers great scenery. What dissapointed us is that the fortress is closed for who knows why and for who knows how long...To bad, it is nice inside....

The trip to arrive there is nice, you can take the stairs, or a longer road on a hill, is a 10-15 minutes walk. The view from there is WOW, you can see all the city

Old, state owned restaurant with similar service and food, but lovely view and atmosphere - they used to have these wonderful performances of the local opera and philarmonic that more than made up for the less attractive aspects.

Our large group of 41 went to the Citadel for dinner and music. We took up half of the room. At the other half sat one couple. The entrance into the castle required knowing the magic word to receive permission to enter. Upon entering, our group was welcome with brandy and appetizers. Entering the main part of the dining room... More

As a restaurant, I found this place to be slightly above average. The food can vary from decent to good, depending on what you order. The service is efficient. What I think really catches the eye is the impressive scenery and the history of this place. It is located in a former medieval citadel, and wondering around it might make... More

We recently went to Brasov to search for a place to get married and we saw the fortress up on the hill right next to the old town, called Cetatea Brasovului. After a quick investigation and a log chat with the castle's admin we found this could be a right place for us! The history which revolves around the walls... More

Cetate is an interesting restaurant in an old fortress on a hill overlooking Brasov. We found the food quality to be variable. The appetizers and tuica were very good. The salads and side dishes were good to very good Romanian. The grilled meat was dry and tasteless. The service was friendly and efficient. The restaurant had a de facto non-smoking... More

Strolling through the cetate, looking at powder magazines and gun emplacements, the view over the city, and the generally ancient feel of the place, we were pleased to wind up with a great dinner and good service on the outdoor terrace as the stars came out.
