I had such a lovely evening at this restaurant, the atmosphere was great, the people and the services were perfect. Best steak in town in my opinion. Best red wine ever!

The waitress was very nice and attentive, even though she had a big table with a children's party in addition to our table. The food was delicious, especially the Dallas Striploin and baked potatoes. There's a children's playroom in the restaurant, so if you're planning on a romantic dinner I would recommend having a late meal.

I visited here and had a 300g Dakota Striploin. Steak itself was cooked well and tasted fine but not up to the standard i'd get at home in Ireland (for cheaper). Fries were very poor. They were homemade which is usually a good start but were greasy on the outside and not soft on the inside. I'd be used to... More

Was there three times in October. Ordered various dishes. Among the meat I went for lamb chops twice and loved them, though once a bit undone. Soups and breads were very good. Desserts were great as well. I will not say this is very fancy place, but most diners were business folks and well dressed crowd. Service was a nothch... More

Went for dinner with a colleague last night. My view, it is expensive by Romanian standards and the food was decidedly average. We spent Lei 300 on the food - a starter of ham and a salmon mousse followed by two x 200g steaks and some sides. I didn't find my steak particularly tasty and the chips were extremely greasy...

We visited El Toro whilst visiting Bistrita . We took Ovidiu Danci a Romanian celebrity ballet dancer and soap star along for a meal . We drove one and a half hours to Cluj Napoca to our favourite steakhouse and as always it was worth it . We all went for the Argentinian ribeye with fries rather than the Denver... More

Very close to our hotel Opera Plaza and large choise of different steaks. They sure know the beef business. We had filet mignon 200 g each and that was a very good posttion for each of us.
