Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

A very cozy place to spend a cold day in Brașov! I just loved the design, and the food and the service were great! I recommend to take Greek soup.

Joined our daughter and her friend for lunch. They had already ordered but only one of their meals arrived. The second one took 20 minutes extra after several reminders. The next four of us ordered and my salad came out within five minutes, then a...twenty minute wait for two more mains and they had to be chased for our drinks order which didn’t arrive until I’d finished eating. After several reminders they admitted that they had forgotten our last members main, twenty minutes later her pasta came out uncooked. We had to do all of the chasing. The waiter’s attitude was ‘it’s not my fault, it’s the kitchen’. This is not a cheap place to eat but we certainly wouldn’t recommend it. A waste of two hours of our holiday and not worth it from a food quality or cost perspective. There are lots of better places to eat within a five minute walk - Sergianas as a shining example.More

Such a sweet little place, located in the old center. Everything was great, the food, the staff, the view. I totally recommend.

First off, we were drawn in by the warm beautiful interior. It is lovely with antique books on the walls and early century feel in general. The design is top notch. We ordered cocktails and the margarita was delicious. I did ask for an Old...Fashioned though (the most basic cocktail that any barman should be able to make) and they told me I had to stick to their limited cocktail selection, which was a bit disappointing. From there my wife and I shared a fondue and, while it was tasty, it was too expensive for what it ended up being. Basically a huge pot of cheese and toast for dipping. Would probably recommend less expensive and substantially less cheese. We wasted half the fondue because it was too much to eat, especially when there was only toast for dipping. One can only have so much bread. All this said, this restaurant is new so I think they're still figuring things out :).More

We choose this café by instinct passing through the street and looking for a cozy place for a quick stop. The decoration is excellent, with a reference to a pharmacy. Cozy armchairs and tables, light music, very gentle and quick staff. Clear bathroom. Unsmoked place...indoors. Menu includes coffee, tea, drinks and some plates. Concerning prices, please check the photo below from our order. You can pay cash or card. We had a pleasure break, and we recommend this place for sure.More

Totally unexpected as we were trailing around recommended restaurants on the tourist map to absolutely no avail. Came into here by chance and were happily surprised. My boyfriend and I just had the most pleasant evening here. The atmosphere was calm and friendly but also...warm and fun, the waitress was very kind and patient with our English - I wish I asked her name. We had some cocktails (fantastic) to start, got hungry and ordered some lovely food. The hummous was out of this world. Pizza looked amazing. We both had pasta which was fantastic. Worth popping in.More

We passed this quaint, candlelit place at night and simply had to go inside. It was like stepping into the past, into the Belle Epoque! Reminders of the nineteenth century were everywhere. Good beer, too!

First morning in the city first bad experience. I walked inside sit on a table and the lady without even saying good morning told us that usually that table is for some other clientas ( no one was inside no reservation sign on any table)...I felt like I m bot wanted and left. Came back in the after noon and waited for more than 30 min to receive some menus. My girlfriend walked to the bar and asked why is no one coming but the same lady that was in the morning sent her back saying to wait. After we got the menus we waited for an other 30 min at least till again we had to go to the bar and give our order. Meanwhile in all this time I have to say that no one else came inside it wasn t very crowded they were just rude and without any mark of commonsense. Definitely not recommended the interior is very nice but belive me your sitting there won't be relaxing or pleasant.More

They recently changed the cafe's profile, they included food in their menu and they have a nice range of italian food. It is a casual dining with tasty food and it has a good and peaceful ambiace, too!
