A busy Tuesday evening it was, with a very slow and not very polite service. We had to wait long time, till waiters could find some time to take care of us. But then, the food was surprisingly good. Simply, traditional, tasty. It is rather...More

We went with two small kids. Food tastes badly, with artificial taste, especially the soup. Once again the confirmation in Sibiu there is no good place to eat.

Excellent authentic Romanian cuisine at a very good price. Nice atmosphere in the underground cellar space, especially in the summer months when it's a bit too hot outside.

We were driving from Bucharest and decided to drop a visit here after positive reviews I've read. The place didnt disappoint us-it is located in the basement, like the wine cellar and it has its charm. You could feel the Romanian vibes through the interior...More

For a Romanian traveler, not so amazing, because we know how traditional food should taste like. Very fresh ingredients and very well cooked. For someone who has never been in Romania before, I recomand this traditional cooking style. Not very crowded, we had to make...More

We went there because it was listed as no. 1, but, although the experience in whole was good, I think it is overrated. First of all, it is small, only about 10 tables, so rather crowded and loud (which is fine if you like it...More

If you don't mind rather unfriendly service, you will be happy with choices of meals and quality. I would go there again.

Dear friends, our restaurant will be closed for two weeks, from the 5th until the 20th of December. We want to give our personnel a short holiday after a long season and prepare for the next period, that is winter holidays and the end of this year. Thank you for understanding and hope to see back after we open. Best wishes, Crama Sibiul Vechi

Buna ziua, din pacate accesul cu animale de companie in restaurantul nostru nu este permis din cauza lipsei unui spatiu special amenajat asa cum cer normele sanitar-veterinare. Am putea sa-l tinem in curtea interioara, dar... More
We are coming to Sibiu on Saturday evening with our sweet dog, Barney, and wanted to make sure he would be welcome to join us at dinner? He's American and British, and very well behaved as he's accustomed to lots of traveling and dining out. Thanks so much! Anna

Dear Anna K, unfortunately the Romanian veterinary regulations forbid restaurants to accept animals indoors. Since we only have an indoor room it is impossible to accomodate you. We have an inner yard where your dog could... More
