    stalls: fried sandwiches

    stall

    As the hotel breakfast was served untill 10 am and I usually woke up later, I had to find another place to eat something. Bars have some really nice cakes, but my favourite breekfats became the fried sandwiches they give in the stalls of victory square, they are simply delicious specially, if like me you prefer a salty breakfast than a sweet one.

    Favorite Dish: Fried sandwiches.

    Opera Cafe: good Illy espresso

    coffe

    This is one of the many bars that overlooks Victory square. Here you can both have breakfast, an icecream or a real meal.
    I came here just to have coffe as it was the best in town, not as good as in Belgrade but still a decent espresso.

    Favorite Dish: Illy espresso.

    tripe
    4 more images

    Though the name sounds italian this is not an italian restaurant, it has some italian dishes in the men nu but all the staff is romanian and romanian are the main dishes of the menu.
    It's in the heart of the city just next to Victory square.

    Favorite Dish: Ciorbas, romanian soups are definitly their specialites but the best dishes I had were: chiken liver and tripe both were really excellent and not so common to find in a menu, but if you want they also have pizza or frnch fries.Their local timisoreana beer is just ok.

    Karadjordje restaurant: Serbian food of Timisoara

    by hungariangirl896 Written Aug 26, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Excellent Serbian food!

    Karadjordje is a very interesting, "cellar-type" restaurant. As soon as you walk downstairs, you are greeted with what sounds like Serbian manele...it's very good!! :) You may have a difficult time choosing what to order because there are so many options. I recommend trying the Schnitzel with french fries...it's some of the best I've ever had. The Karadjordje Sword, a kebab with 5 types of meat, is another good option. Also, the Serbian salad is really good too. There is only one menu item to watch out for...lemonade...they serve part of a fresh squeezed lemon mixed with a little water and sugar packets on the side. I guess it could be good (depending on what you order)...only order the lemonade if your not ordering something salty or you also get some bottled water. Overall, the service and everything else is very good. Enjoy! :)

    Favorite Dish: I tried the Schnitzel Banateana with french fries and it was some of the best schnitzel I've ever had. It's also served with a little bit of cabbage and mayonnaise.

  • Cafe Colt: Awsome corner cafe and open 24 hrs!

    by vlad_curtean Written Jun 22, 2010

    I really liked Cafe Colt; which btw stands for corner cafe, because of the ambiance and service. I also really like the fact that I was sitting at the bar one night with my brother and it was about 1:30am so naturally I asked the bartender when they close and he said: "we don't". I live in Calgary, Canada now but was born in Timisoara. For me it was also cool being half a block away from the school I spent grades 1 through 4 at. I was 25 when I went back and it was my first time in 14 years going back and I gotta say that I was surprised with the peoples hospitality, willingness to speak English and to give you a great experience. This was definitely the case at Cafe Colt. I'd have to say that the best thing about Timisoara was the good food and the easy to talk to and beautiful girls.

  • La Cucina Moderna: As good as home-made

    by A_flj_ Written Nov 4, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Don't get fooled by the italian name, most of the dishes are Romanian.

    The owner worked a few years in Italy, hence the name. The owner and her daughter are serving in the restuarant.

    It's small, nice, most of its customers are regulars.

    I'd say it has the best cook in town, even if there are other, larger, restaurants, which look better and serve more ellaborate dishes.

    The recipes are nothing out of this world, but taste great.

    Every day, there are a few extra dishes, which you cannot find on the menu, which the cook does for the sheer pleasure of cooking. Don't foget to ask about them, in the unlikely event that the waiter forgets to tell you.

    It may be full during weekends, especially at the end of the summer and in autumn, so it may pay to make a reservation.

    They're experts on food, but not on wine. You can freely leave the waiter to choose the food for you, but don't expect too much advice on wine.

    They also have traditional drinks on stock which aren't on the menu, and the waiter won't tell you about them: plum brandy (single and double distilled) and home-made sour cherry and blue berry licquor - these last two are very sweet (we call them women's drinks), and are intended for desert.

    Favorite Dish: I can't recommend one special thing. I'll put up two menus:

    First, the one for professional eaters:
    Starter: Aubergine cream (don't miss this, you can't get it anywhere else in the world)

    Soup: Pork belly soup (Germans call it Kuttelsuppe)

    Main dish: Sarmale (sour cabbage leafs filled with a mixture of meat, rice and spice)

    Desert: you have to ask for what's not on the menu - the usual suspects are an excelent, very aromatic apple pie, sour cherry pie, chocolate cake, all prepared in-house

    Drinks:
    You may have a beer before the soup.

    Get a "Feteasca neagra" for the main dish. Take care to finish it before desert.

    Then ask for a "vishinata" or "afinata", or a coffee, to accompany desert.


    Second, a lighter menu - but you don't get most of it in winter:

    Starter: a plate with
    "cash" - a sort of fresh cheese, very milky and soft in its taste, also very soft in its texture - they don't have this all the time, it's available only fresh, and it doesn't get made in winter

    traditional fumed bacon - it has very little fat

    tomatoes - these are a must, their very good taste is what makes the whole combination exquisite.

    Soup: a simple chicken soup with noodles

    Main dish (well more of a fast food, if you ask me): mici (pronounced "mitch" - minced meat mixed with spice, formed into little, sausage-like dumplings, and grilled), ideally with horseradish and bread, no other side dish - IMO any side dish takes away some of its taste. If there _has_ to be a side dish, ask for french fries

    Desert: same as above

    Dinks:
    ask for a "tsuica" (plum brandy) right after the starter, drink it up in one gulp right before you start eating the soup (you may not want to do this if the weather is too hot)

    You may have a beer with the mici, but a red wine (for instance a Shiraz - it's pretty new in Romania) also goes well

    For Desert: same as above

  • Song Du: Chineese food fan?

    by Hellene910 Written Aug 2, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I like this restaurant because the prices are very affordable, the atmosphere here is really chinese: the waiters and waitresses, even if they are Romanians they dress like Chinese. The place itself is also very beautiful with a lot of chinese details.

    Favorite Dish: "Gong Bao" chicken and fried spaghetti with vegetables.

    The Millennium: It looks international but it is very Timisoara

    by bertioga Updated Jun 22, 2007

    The Millennium is quite good, in spite of its appearance: a lot of plastic furniture and fixtures, and the fact that its lit signs present it as ‘Fast Food’, in the Millenium most food is presented on its counters, which, if you can’t speak Romanian is very useful.
    Service can be a bit slow, as the good-looking waiters seen to be students, but you are not in a hurry, are you?
    The Millennium seems to do very very long hours.
    The food is good value for your money. Small selection of local beers.

    Favorite Dish: In the Millennium I could really get my teeth in some lovely Romanian dishes.

    Maharaj: Pakistani food

    by AndreSTGT Updated Jan 23, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After having spent several in the Balkans with its somewhat limited culinary options i was really pleased to find this little Indian/Pakistani restaurant in a corner of beautiful Piata Unirii. They serve very decent food at reasonable prices (considering the prime location) and the proprietors are extremely friendly.
    The usual suspects such as Samosas (7lei) and Pakoras (12lei) were nice and the house speciality 'chicken kebabs' (15lei) was delicious.
    Recommended!
