When a friend of mine told me that we will go in a place where we will have our best sauce mussels, I was smiling. We were to Pardon Cafe & Bistro. From the entrance you see that is something different. Retro atmosphere recreating something like a tailor atelier. The second surprise is the chef. Very friendly and ready to... More

Firstly, this place looks really interesting, with old sewing machines as tables and different old decorations on walls, recreating the atmosphere of Sibiu's charming city centre. Secondly, the food is very good and definetly not overpriced. It's a very good choice for a lunch or a dinner in Sibiu.

I just dropped into this very special restaurant with Romanian colleagues after a meeting. The interior is very original, with old chairs and sewing machine tables. It's a place with soul. We just ordered hot wine, it was freezing outside. Good wine, but not extraordinary to get the final star. But definitely a place to visit!

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.

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.
