Part of our VT Bus Tour to Alba Iulia was to have lunch together. We ate at the Medieval Restaurant PUB13. It was like a large cavern, with wooden tables. We all sat at one long table.
First came out a bowl of bean soup which was delicious.
The Platters of food were huge. One platter had baked potato wedges, french fries, pickles, mixed vegetables and rice. The meat platters had sausages, pork ribs and chicken pieces. All in all a wonderful lunch.
The restaurant is placed in a great location, near the Fortress, right next to the First Gate ('Poarta a-Ia a Cetăţii').
The atmosphere is cosy, and the owner - who is also the cook - specialized in Italian dishes while being in Italy. You can get here various seafood plates, grilled fish, great pasta but also international dished such as stakes of rabbit stew.
Favorite Dish: I just loved the grilled calamari and the oisters.
Fresh and tasty!
This is a fine place to enjoy Italian specialities in a most attractive setting. The pizza and pasta selections were delicious, and the service was excellent! One may be seated indoors, or outdoors on the patio.
Their menu has one of the greatest variety of pizzas and pastas in town. The prices range from 2,5 $ to 6 $ for a large pizza. A large selection of wines, beers and non-alcoholic drinks is also available. The ambiance is nice, nothing exceptional though.
Favorite Dish: The seafood pizza, the spaghetti carbonara and the lasagna. Also tParma ham with cantaloup - delicious!
The place's nice and clean, it has a non-smoker section (which is a very rare thing in Romania). Pizzas are made & baked in front of you, in an open owen, usually by the owner himself- a guy with a biiiiiiig moustache :). The food selection is very large but for the fancier foods (like pasta con languste or risotto con funghi porcini) it's better to check with the waitress if they are serving it on that particular day. The music's at a pleasant level, making conversation enjoyable. All in all, a place to visit and come back for more.
Favorite Dish: I'd say the chef's speciallity - Pizza Baffo - it's large, with a huge list of things in the topping and not that expensive.
The food is excellent, you can choose from a large list , with an extensive vegetarian offer too. The prices are quite high for Alba Iulia . The ambient is rather kitschy, with chinese plastic decorations and a little fake cascade.
Favorite Dish: I'd say the calamari with truffels, but it's hard to decide.
The beverages are cheaper than in the fancier restaurants, but the pizzas cost less mainly because of their smaller size and not-so-exquisite quality.
