The restaurant is a cozy place were you can taste local food, with a light hungarian touch. The service is good, staff english and french speaking. The food is quit tasty, I would recommend duck soup or the aubergine salat for starters Also the duck with sour cherry sauce would be great to taste. I like to eat sometimes lunch... More

This is a great restaurant. The young gentleman who served us was friendly and helpful, even though we turned up close to closing time. We ordered pork knuckle - which was to die for - and a pork tenderloin, which was fine. We then had the traditional Romanian desert which was like a donut with custard and berries - another... More

The service was good. Not excellent but reasonable. The food was quite good. A bit noisy, especially when there are kids parties, but this is not a real problem.The problem is the smell. One out of the restaurant you can still smell your food...from you clothes.

We had a reservation for a diner outdoors, 3 adults and one child. Great food variety but my recommendation is to go with their specials. After sunset a bit too dark for my taste.

Food quality is very good as always, needed to wait a little to get a table but with high demand that's natural.

We had a RESERVATION, but when we've sat down at the table we were informed that "we need to be prepared" to move to a different table in case a bigger group will arrive which apparently also had a reservation half an hour later, but there were no free tables anymore. Of course, no "sorry" or "apologies" for the personnel,... More

We had an amazing experience in this restaurant. The waiter was very professional and nice. The place is clean, tidy and furnished in a nice traditional way. The food we ordered was tasty, especially spätzle and the polenta entree - not a big fan of the 2x traditional Romanian platter but we should have followed the waiter's suggestion and probably...
