Tasty, authentic, family atmosphere Romanian restaurant. Perhaps the best in the country. Nice variety of traditional food. A "Welcome" feeling right from the start. Though crowded on weekends still recommended. Reasonable prices.

A Great place to eat at, if you are into simple and tasty dishes. I would recommend the Patrichan hotdog, Steak (Could be pork or beed) and Romanian Kebabs. It is an inexpensive place, for people on a budget. On saturdays, make sure to book a place in advance.

We made reservation night before our visit. Lucky us as it's completely full with big line outside. Chile liver, pickles, and of course - kabab. Simple - but great food.

Service is good and the owner is nice, but the food is no more than medium. We ordered a steak, french fries, kebab and salads. We started with the cabbage, which was uneatable. We assumed that it could happen and that we perhaps just don't like the taste of its vinegar. Then the kebabs came and they were tasty, even... More

If you feel like going back to the early 80's, then this is your chance. Time truly stood still in this wonderful family runned restaurant. Great food for very reasonable prices. Steak was excellent, properly marinated and grilled. Loads of garlic, which made me a happy camper. Will go back once I'll be in Haifa again

We go there very frequently, usually for lunch. Sometimes, we take away products and cook them at home. This is one of the best, possibly the best, Romanian restaurant I ever ate at in Israel - and I should know, because I was born in Romania and lived there for 30 years. Their pork steaks are made to perfection, their... More

For better or worse, the place is oldschool. Oldschool for real - not for show: they've been around since 1948. Everything is straightforward, simple, and very well made. Do. Not. Miss. The Kebab. The prices are ridiculously low. If you want (or curious about) east European food, prepared like it was since before WWII - this is where you need... More

Just amazing!! This restaurant is the best Romanian grill in Israel in my opinion. The food is great, cooked to perfection and the service is good. Do not miss it when coming to Haifa.

If you are looking for traditional Romanian home made style food this is the right choice. Chopped liver, Ikra salad and pickles are exactly as my mother in law used to serve. Romanian Kabab, and Beef and Pork Steaks are excellent. Service is very good. Price is moderate. Make sure you reserve a table since the restaurant is usually very... More

We ordered in advance but we had to wait because the place was very crowded. My advice is not to come on Saturday noon because the service and atmosphere is less than average. The food is authentic Romanian restaurant and the food was fresh and tasty.

Description
A historical eatery, originally a coffee and ice cream place, today it has retained the name and the outside historical sign, as well as old pictures of Haifa, the restaurant and patrons decorating the inside, but the food is purely meat. The food is fairly simple, grilled meat of good quality, including pork - called in Israel "white meat" - accompanied by chips or grilled potatoes. The only specifically Romanian dishes that I could discover was a soup with pork bones whose name I did not retain and a mixed grill plate, which consisted of grilled cow meat entrails. This last I did order and it was really very nice. For the 50 Shekel the portion could have been bigger though. The restaurant lies in the downtown area not far from the government offices. Big place, not too noisy and accepts all credit cards and offers WIFI access, too. Open weekdays from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Fridays till 5 p.m. and on Saturdays till 8 p.m. As desert they offer Bavarian Cream or Ice cream. A good wine and beer selection.
