Very nice location and good food. Large variety of drinks and tasty pasta. Oven made pork with mushrooms was also tasty. A good investment would be in their staff.

Next to a Potters tower, situated in an old, beautiful street. Cute cafe with lots of flowers was ideal for afternoon coffee, after long walk around the city.

Away from the hustle and bustle, adjacent to the theater. We had a lovely dinner on the patio in the coolness of the evening. We had great food, and totally enjoyed everything. We were so happy we stumbled across this lovely restaurant. Kudos to the owner/chef who takes a personal interest in preparing the food.

Overall it's a nice location but because of the service we stayed only 5 minutes. The waiter came to our table, asked us if we ordered. He didn't greet us at all. We said no and then he threw 1,5 menus on the table and left. I said 1,5 menus because the second was ripped and I got only the... More

We went here on a friday night right before 23:00, when the kitchen closes. Even so they made us an excellent pizza with prosciuto crudo and a chicken with olives. The food is delicious and they also have Stejar beer, a must have for anyone travelling to Romania.

We stopped for a refreshment : very good and fresh lemonade. The ice cream were good too. The atmosphere is really nice both inside and on the terrace.

Great place to have a drink - impressive menu and choice. Also location is great. However, we were the early afternoon and only pizza and salads were available. Pizza was average, salad under average / food was overpriced (compared to other restaurants in the city). Staff also not super friendly. A bit disappointing, but I would go back for a... More

We are staying for a few weeks in Sibiu but have not been in Pardon yet so gave it a try. They serve Italian food and the setting is nice. However that is where it stops. When we opened the menu, at the first sight it seemed overpriced even for Sibiu. With this in mind, we expected we would be... More

In a place where the most different kind of music and scenery meet in a surprisingly armonious way, Pardon Cafe Bistro it's a must on your "to do/see" list when you get to Sibiu. The cafe's tables are former sewing machines and they are named after european cities. Items that remind us of another era, a time when Bell or Felini were alive hang fron the walls and the ceiling is covered in music sheets. That cafe is placed across the street from Thalia Hall and it has the terrase one of the most beatiful streets in town. We are going to let you decide whether this is the perfect place to escape reality or not.
