This restaurant has a nice history, it exists since comunism. Now, the food is great and you get a lot of it and it is genuine for this area. Your clothes might smell of food afterwards, but it is totally worth it!

We wanted some traditional food and we found the right place. Everything we ordered was delicios and in quite big portions. Service was ok, but the place itself is nothing special.

This is one of the oldest restaurants in Cluj , with very friendly and helpful staff . Food big portions and very ok. Even the “ look “ of the restaurant needs a refresh , everything was great and we will be back . Recommended!

We had well prepared local food, helped in our choice by a very pro-active and friendly owner. The food was delicious, even the wine-by- the glass was better than expected. Price unbelievable. The place needs a bit of renovation, but what the heck.

We went there in the evening after 8 hour drive. The staff was very nice and helpful. We enjoyed a very good dinner. The soup and salad were huge and the drinks were wery good. Also, the price was very good. Price/quality ratio is one...More

Best traditional dishes in Cluj, both me and my boyfriend loved their savoury cooking. The desert was okay too but I definitely don't go to Ardeal County for deserts.

Really not a place to go. The food is not interesting and quite lame. It is not pricey but is not authentic Romanian food. Try something else

We found the restaurant through Trip Advisor. All we wanted was to try traditional food, Istvan from the restaurant helped us for our orders.
