Why locals love it

First of all, locals love Vatra because of the food. They really respect the traditional recipes, so the food here is well cooked and very tasty. Secondly, it's a quiet place, nicely decorated, away from the city noise... It just feels cozy.

Why you should visit it

You should visit Vatra if you want to try some really delicious authentic Romanian food in a comfortable environment. The restaurant has all sorts of traditional Romanian decorations and a lovely terrace open in the summer, with traditional folk music and dance. It's a whole Romanian experience!

Special tip

Vatra has the best ciorba in town. There's also mamaliga, that goes really well with sarmale, Romania's traditional dish, or mici (meatrolls).

Cozy place with terrace, with fine touches of traditional design elements and romanian good food. The staff is nice and polite, prompt service. Always a pleasure to come back here.

Great local place! We had great food and an authentic relaxed Romanian ambiance. The fact that this place is in a relax neighbourhood in the city center, gives ita big advantage! If you are going to eat there, I recommend to go afterwards to CONTROL, a beautiful cool bar 1 min walk.
