Excellent restaurant in every single aspect of a restaurant can be rated. If I had to say some drawback, I would recommend them to facilitate the menu in english language although there are pictures which is sometimes even better than any word. I wouldn't lose my time looking for other places, this place is by far one the most restaurant... More

This is my favorite place in Brasov because of the cosy atmosphere, the decor and the food. Yes, usually the service isn't great because the restaurant is always full and you can wait a while to get your check but the food always comes in time, it is served properly, it is very very good and in a wide variety....

I have been to this restaurant so many times in the past years and each time I think they are getting better they do something and ruin it. Either the waiter is incredibly rude or amazingly slow, the food is not as good as usually, they are not serving lunch although it is lunch time...there is always something. On the... More

One of the best pubs/restaurants in Brasov. Very fine food, tasty from all types of cuisine. Nice atmosphere, right in the city center. If you want to escape the streets, you enter in an other atmosphere.

We came across this place when strolling the center of Brasov. The Art Deco surroundings made up a nice atmosphere for cocktails.

They had on the ground floor 6 empty tables by 6, being possible to be split, as all reserved. Me an my friend were rudely told to be sit on the 1st floor in a far... More

This place is so cool. It looks like a old theater. Plus the food is good. The main dishes are big, we couldn't even finished them! And they are yummy for a great price. Specially the cheeses from Rumania where so good.

I've been there first for drinks on a Saturday night. The atmosphere is from the 1920's, jazzy music and very classy. We went back there for lunch the next day. Price is very affordable, the place is amazing. Food was average and service could have been better (forgotten dish + delayed services leading to cold dish); but nothing that would... More

After we ordered our breakfast and our included drinks were brought, after aprox. 15 minutes, the waiter came and communicated us, they don't have the food we ordered by saying: "I didn't know it also..." We were told croissants are inclused, but other cakes were brought together with the replica "It's also confectionery, as it is written within the menu."... More

I had breakfast in this place, which is an open buffet containing a little bit of everything: eggs, salami, cheese, sausages, cereals, fruits. An average breakfast I would say. But I recommed this place for the wonderful art nouveau design.
