The visitors don’t come to this place only for the burgers, they come for the great view and even for the other great dishes served here. If you get here on a sunny day, you’ll want to have a meal on the terrace where you can admire the old town of Cluj-Napoca and the Gothic Church. You can also have pizza, soup, vegetarian food, delicious desserts and a large variety of drinks from this place.

5. Kaja Tanya

Maybe you’re not a vegetarian, but you want to enjoy a full meal as one of them. The Kaja Tanya Restaurant is the most vegetarian-friendly restaurant from Cluj-Napoca. And also, this restaurant is probably the smallest one from Cluj, it has only a couple of tables, and the food is prepared by its owners. The name of the restaurant is in Hungarian, and it can be translated as ‘homemade food’. So if you want to enjoy some food made by the locals, here’s another reason to come at this restaurant. You can find it in the Old Town of Bucharest, near the Baracca Restaurant and less than 1 km (0.6 mi) from the Botanical Gardens.

After some short reviews of these six restaurants, we all can agree that it can be hard to choose from a meal on the high hills, at a quiet terrace of the Old Town, or on a balcony with a view of the entire Old Town. It can be hard to choose if you stay here for only a night or two, but the restaurants on this list will be enough for a full week in the heart of Transylvania.
