We wanted an authentic Romanian meal on our last night and certainly found it at Roata. What a great place, seated in a small courtyard we were treated to excellent food and good service from pleasant staff.

We were here with a company of six people. Amazing place!! We loved everything about it. The food was absolutely delicious. The staff were very welcoming and sweet and the waitress was very patient with our chaotic orders. We stayed for 2 hours at this place. This is easily one of the best places we visited in Cluj. Highly recommended!!

Lovely intimate and traditional atmosphere. Food was top quality and big portions. Reasonably priced and staff very friendly. The welcome drink is a lovely touch and the staff provide you with information to make it a special and authentic evening. I had the venison stew with polenta which was great and so tasty!
