This place is very nice, the atmosphere is extraordinary and the service ok. As we go there maybe monthly, I think they need something new in the menu. The food is very good but needs diversity. There are the same dishes as the last year.

Awesome place for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. Hummus is favorite dish and I highly recommend it to try it. the place is outside the crowded city centre, a little bit hidden but it's just perfect. I will come back with great pleasure.

Really cool garden to hang out with friends; child friendly as well. They offer a wide range of drinks. I wasn't super impressed with the food (the houmous I had was very good). Another improvement point would be for the waiters to get to know...More

Been here early in the morning. Chill and relaxed atmosphere, great music and friendly staff. I was feelin' like i was in the 1920s. I love it. Great spot in the middle of a crowdy city. Thumbs up 👍🏼

The staff is really cool, and the place is quite beautiful, like an island on a street that seems to have been forgoten by authorities. I really like J'ai bistro.

This place was highlighted by a local as a typical Romanian restaurant. It is, in part. We enjoyed local sausages entrée and pork cutlets with mashed potatoes. But they also serve hamburgers and Peruvian quinoa salad -- go figure how Romanian this food is. Menu...More

not that easy to find (without tripadvisor) - but worth a walk from the center. quiet, lovely, friendly and helpful staff; the meals we had were nice prepared and tasty only the beer (silva) will not be one of our favourites
