We went just because of the rename of the restaurant. The food was quite good but prices were much too high.

This was our 4th visit here over 2 years and can say it never disappoints. We ordered the Chateaubriand for 4 people it was cooked by Mariana and once again was cooked to perfection. She was very attentive as usual always topping up your wine glass and checking if anyone wanted to order drinks from the bar. Desserts were beautiful... More

Been to PB 4 times now and we were recommended this restaurant by friends. Especially the Chateaubriand for 2. There is also no kids menu. When we arrived we waited 10 mins for anyone to take our drinks order. I ordered a bottle of white and the waiter said that he thought another one would be better. £16 more. Do... More

This place was a lovely surprise. The service was excellent, the port ribs gorgeous and the lava cake and mango sauce rocked. I would definitely come back here!

They put you with other people on the table and kick you out if u are less than 4 person. Very rude personal. Many mistakes from the waiter

Dear sir, With all do respect, i think you reviewed the wrong restaurant! The reason i'm saying this, is because in our restaurant we mainly have tables for 4 persons and few tables for 6 persons, plus one table for 12 persons. Beside this, it is not our policy to mix customers at the same table! Everybody knows that there... More

Service was good. If you are interested in experiencing fresh game and unusual meats, this is the place for you. Lacked atmosphere but we found ourselves there when they were hosting a wedding so we were the only other diners.

Location is good; quite a few parking spots around. Interior is very nice and clean. Restrooms are on the ground floor, right at the entrance, which is a quite unfortunate location. Food was very good. Personnel was ok, if a little bit talking down to customers. Prices are incredible high :( !

The food was excellent, deer cooked to perfection, but prices are unbelievably high for Romania (150 ron for a main dish, a dessert and a small bottle of wine), which probably explains why many tables were empty. Not clear how it is possible not to have any kind of soup at the beginning of the evening. Good service.

Great place to have traditional food coupled with an amazing ambient. Waiters were very nice and prompt and the food amazing. Try the Ribs, they're great.
