Their outside sign enticed me in to their restaurant. The sign offered soup and club house sandwich for €4. The soup, chicken, was excellent, lots of chicken and vegetables. The sandwich was presented nicely, pink and white bread, but had way too much sauce which made it very messy to eat. The sandwich was good other wise. Nice decor and... More

Hidden away at the top of the Jumbo shopping centre, this place offered a large variety of food and seemed popular with locals. As with most places in Moldova, meat was firmly on the menu. Good food and friendly service. If you don't speak Romanian then you may need to point at the pictures on the menu. Our server did... More

Very big portions and low prices make this restaurant unforgettable. Really good steaks especially the pepper steak. Really friendly customer service. The owner comes up to every customer and asks what drink you would like or how your day is. After coming to this restaurant 5 or 6 times me and the owner became friends really fast. If you come...

My husband and I happened upon this place today and it's a great place to go if you have a young child. There is an enclosed play space where the little ones can play and entertain themselves while you eat good Greek food right next to the play space in a non-smoking section. We both ordered the Souvlaki pita plate... More

Kind of like tex mex, but in this case Mold Mex I suppose. The dishes are interesting and pretty good. The venue is small and comfortable. Definitely worth a visit. You will enjoy a new take on Mexican.

I like very much the dishes and their taste in this place. Tzatziki souse was even better then the one i've tried in cyprus. What i dislike about this place is that even if it is not very fool there is always to wait very much until the food is ready :(

This place offers a Greek menu. Inside Jumbo shopping mall, it is just another average food court restaurant and bar. You don't want to make a special trip to this place, but it you want a drink or a bite to eat while you are shopping, it is the best in the mall.
