A bit of the Centre but very conveniently located near our hotel. We almost missed it because the restaurant is located in the inner courtyard of a beautiful building. The service was friendly and efficient. The typical local food was great. The porknuckle was succulent and very tender. There were a lot of local people eating so that's always a... More

It was late for a dinner, we were hungry after driving 600 km, the place was the closest to our hotel, and... was having good reviews on Tripadvisor. So we decided to try it. The beginning was positive, with a friendly interior design, in a half-underground floor. Moreover, they were having seats (it's quite big), and we were invited to... More

Nice location, funny and varied menu. I would give it 9/10, i had the gulash and the beef was not tender enough. Deserts are quite good. The portions are sizeable. Service was very good!

One of my favorite restaurant in Temesvar. Nice atmosphere, helpful staff and good traditional food.

When you’re looking for traditional food this is your go-to place. With specialty dishes from grandma you are sure to be treated with local cuisine. The original ‘bunicii’ (grandmother) used to overlook the quality of dishes at the opening night herself. We had a delicious dish with chicken and cherries and papanasi, a beignet-type cheesy dessert that every local loves.

The place is nice, has a cosy atmosphere and the food is good. The prices are moderate, it is not a cheap restaurant, but is is also not the most expensive in town.

I absolutely love this place because it combines excellent food with a huge, nice playroom for the little ones. From 7-9pm there's even a caretaker to make sure parents have a relaxed evening.
