Located in the center of Poiana Brasov resort and surrounded by the beautiful fir tree forest, Restaurant Vanatorul is the best place where you can enjoy a lovely meal, try our unique venison game meat, our well known "papanasi" dessert and enjoy the fresh mountain air. Our tradition is more than 40 years, the restaurant being established in the month of July, 1975!
