The food at vatra neamului was fabulous. Well cooked, delicious. The place looks cosy and traditional. However, despite the fact that I didn't have any other food on the day, I felt really sick afterwards - probably a stomach bug, which honestly can happen to...More

We wanted to try traditional Moldovan food and we have not been disappointed! The prices are quite cheap so we ordered in total 6 dishes and all of them were delicious. The place is nicely decorated, so you can take good pictures inside. I don't...More

The place is very beautiful, and the food was so delicious, that we came here to eat dinner 3 days in a row. The traditional soups and the pies (potatoes, salty cheese, cabbage) were delicious.

DO NOT RESERVED ON INTERNET. They do not bother even to check if someone made an reservation. We stay 2 and half hour in restaurant but we waited almost 2 hour the food. Good food but nothing special beside the PRICE wich was very high.

The place is really nice, but the food is not that good. The soup was so sour that I could not finish it, and the cabbage rolls (sarmale) had very little or no meat. The price is too high, given the poor quality of the...More
