While the building is beautiful and there was lovely piano music, we ended up leaving. Why? We were seated immediately and given menus but after about 15 minutes of no one coming to the table, I had to call a waitress over. Then I asked what items on the menu were gluten free as I have celiac. She said- just... More

I've come to this bistro specifically because they won Burgerfest and I wanted to try the renowned burger. It was really good but it only managed to tie in my case with a different burger in the city. Definitely not the bet one I've had so far. Still the burger was really good, the actual meatloaf was huge and beautifully... More

I have been there in evenings with piano concert (pot-puri of classical, jazz, cafe-concert) and also at short theatre plays. The food is also nice and surprising.

The place is really nice, right in the center and in an old house. We had the Bistro Burger but it arrived cold and on top we felt a bit sick afterwords. The service was very nice. Check it out when in Brasov.

We stumbled upon this bistro wandering on the smaller streets of the old city looking for a warming break, and we were impressed with the coziness of the interior, the attention to detail and the welcoming staff. They also had on the menu an old winter drink our mothers used to make: Șodou, to different precipices (the classical one could... More

I used to like this place very much but during my last visits (Nov 2016 and Jan 2017) I was very disapponited both in the quality of food and the service. It is true that I have been here for brunch only during my last visits, nevetheless I find it to be average. There are much nicer places in town... More

The menu is very special, they have some unusual meals (in a good way). We tried the soups, burger and shrimps and everything was delicious. Also the lemonade was very good and the the service was excellent. It was a delightful experience.
