Reviewed By Duta V - Bucharest, Romania

We took lunch and dinner, both meals very tasty.
Duo veal steak and foie gras amazing taste but very expensive 160 ron(35euro).
Both goulash soup with veal and deer meat were good, a plus for veal.
Duck with mashed potatoes and horseradish, a pleasant surprise.
Smoked pork knuckle with saukeraut was ok.
Salmon with vegetables was good.
Lamb was tasty, i didn't took a side dish but i recommend to do this.
Bavareze salad wasn't on our taste.
Apfel strudel very good. It takes 20 minutes to be prepared.
Chocolate fondue with fruits, nothing special. I don't recommend it.
Even if the restaurant was crowded the dishes were prepared correct and serving was very very attentive, as usual.
Prices are high but the food is good.
I strongly recommend this location.

It's a good choice when it comes to traditional cuisine. Not too expensive and also the serving was impeccable. The waiter was by the book. It's worth visiting. Can't say anything about the accomodation because i only went there to eat.

Kuib

Restaurant din lemn de stejar si piatra de rau din complexul Piatra Soimului. Meniu incredibil de rafinat si variat pentru o zona turistica de munte si servicii etichetate ecologic. Liniste si priveliste de poveste.

Reviewed By Adrian-Costin T - Bucharest, Romania

I have visited Taverna Sarbului in Sinaia many times over many years and I can say they maintain their above average score. During the last visit the food was good (only had soup) and services speedy. Because of its size Taverna Sarbului offers a great atmosphere so if you are in Sinaia for the first time to pay them a visit.

Cucina Sofia

Reviewed By Cristina B - Bucharest, Romania

Cucina Sofia is at the background of International Hotel in Sinaia, just a few stairs up from the entrance. As the name says, it has mainly Italian specialties, but one can also taste Romanian cuisine. The food is good indeed and the service very fast. There are all sorts of drinks, some offered by the "house", depending on your order. During summertime it has a beautiful Terrace, spacey and the smell of the fir-trees is a delight. One can have lunch or dinner, both as well served and with tasty food, but on Monday and Tuesday it is closed. For the rest of the week, the programme is from 12 o'clock till midnight. My husband and I are going there every year since...too many years! and we are always satisfied. We know the waiters since they first started their job, and we are glad to tell that they became real professionals: ask anything you want, any combination you can imagine, and they'll do it, no matter it is lunch or dinner and no matter if what you want is or is not on the menu!

Have been here for two consecutive nights since we could not resist the temptation to indulge ourselves with the perfect dishes.
Have been particularly impressed by the beef, the incredible truffles and mushroom cappuccino, but really everything was just perfect. The location and service have been also world class. Congratulations and keep up the high standards.

Restaurant Foisorul cu flori

Reviewed By Arcotangente - Madrid, Spain

Pretentious place with a big lack of a proper service, and overrated food. We requested to sit down in the Terrace but they didn't allow us to do so as it was "fully reserved"; not true, there were 3 empty tables that kept empty the rest of the night. However we were the only occupied table inside.
We ordered the main dishes only as we wanted to have soup as starter but they didn't have any soup available.
It took more than 45 minutes to bring the 4 dishes, despite as noted above we were the only customers in the inside part, and however the restaurant was not more than 40% busy. After 45 minutes sparring while waiting for the food (they didn't consider the idea of apologise for the delay, inform or even bring some appetiser to have in the meantime) we could taste their food.
The food was absolutely poor and didn't worth the visit, the delay and the money paid.
I don't recommend this place.
