We got there without a reservation. We have ben told that everything is booked and that they only work with reservations. After we left (5minutes) i called in order to book a table. I talked with the same person that greeted us. On the phone...i was told they do not work with reservations. Wee need to go there and wait. I identified myself and told her what she told me in person. At this point she started saying that she does not know when they will have a available table. They have about 20 tables with 5 being unoccupied. 2 of these did not have a “reserved” tag on them. I don’t understand why but we where not served. We where also lied to and when we confronted them they did not even own up to what they did. This is highly unprofessional there fore the review and the rating. If you want to visit them call aheadMore

Contrary to what a lot of others have said, we had a very positive experience. We managed to get a table on a Saturday evening, without a reservation. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The wait was slightly shorter than was stated on the...menu, and the food was very good and tasty. All served in a lovely outdoor setting. And coming from the UK we found it very good value for money too.More

We happened upon this place by accident. OMG! First, as you will see in all the bad reviews, don't expect fast service or pleasantries with the staff. Make sure you are not overly hungry and pleasantly advocate for yourself in getting a table, motioning that...you are ready to order and when you need your check. We did all of this and voila, amazing meal. Roving musicians played at our table, the outside seating was beautiful. Suggest the Romanian stew with polenta. The grilled chicken was delectable. No wine offerings but the Ursus beer is great.More

For the Easter Holidays of 2022 we visited the historic Maramures and in the evening we stopped for dinner in Sighetul Marmației where elsewhere than at Casa Iurca, no. 1 in the town. You must definitely taste the "Cosașului Pie", which is very big and...definitely for papanaș at the dessert, to make room!More

Traditional food served in old Maramures ambient location. Original taste of Romanian food and drinks in Sighetul Marmatiei, near to the Sighet prison museum.

Great restaurant with local dishes, excellent soups and main courses, very good deserts as well (papanasi with sweet cheese and berry sauce). The decoration is traditional and the service is very friendly.

The restaurant has good traditional Romanian food, nice presentation, service not very fast, but ok. The dining room is beautiful, but all the dining was outside for some reason, and it was too hot to sit outside. No assigned parking.

Best restaurant in Sighetu Marmației. Food is very tasty and the plates are more than enough. The staff is very friendly and the service is fast. The terrace is cozy and nice decorated with traditional souvenirs. There are a few dishes for vegetarians too. The...quality-price ratio is good. We really recommend this place.More

I loved it :) Nice and cozy place. The food is really good. The prices are great, cheaper than in other overrated places. The staff is friendly and professional. The background music was set up at a perfect volume (meaning it allows you to talk...with the people around without yelling). If I'll ever land again in Sighet I will definitely visit this place again.More

Very poor service, even though not very crowded, way too long waiting, below expectations food. After 2 hours we’ve only received the first dish.

Good position, not far from the center, but on my side it was the single positive fact. The furniture is outdated, breakfast is basic, prices are extremely high and service is really awful.
