Oradea's medieval restaurant

Leonesse’, the first specifically medieval restaurant in Oradeaoffers a totally new alternative for gourmets and for those who are looking for a way to remark a special event. The two knights at the entry are inviting the guests to spend a few hours feeling the atmosphere of King Arthur’s court. Weapons and different objects exposed on the walls and waiters dressed according to the manners of the Dark Age receive the guests who want to try the tasty medieval cuisine. You can leave a feedback in their guest book if you were pleased with all, it's right in the entrance. By the way this is the only restaurant in Oradea where I met a guest book.

Restaurant Crinul Alb, Oradea

It is located right to the center of the city near of the Hotel Dacia (on the other side of the road) and it's one of my favorite places. It's a little bit louder and cheaper than the medieval restaurantbut it has a complete menu made up of all kind of meat, vegetables and salad dishes; beside the game what I prefer (namely rabbit) you can taste the traditional dishes of many nations (Romanian, Hungarian, German, Serbian and many others). The Romanian expression “Crinul Alb” means Madonna lily (“white lily” in loan translation).

There are many other kind places for a great dinner, like Chicken Housein the center or Black Rose restaurant(rather cheap) near the main street. For eating a traditional tripe soup (it Romanian 'ciorba de burta') or the best Quattro Formaggi pizza in the city visit Pizzeria Capricciosain the Rogerius quarter, in the intersection of Moldovei street with Transilvaniei.

Oradea Sights

Continuing your sightseeing tour towards the city centre, a must-stop is welcoming you: the Black Eagle Complex, a real rarity in its greatness and uniqueness. The complex built in Secession style in 1908 is deservedly considered one of the most monumental architectural achievements in Transylvania. The palace originally gave place to a theatre, casino, ballrooms, offices, and it has preserved its combined aspect of culture and entertainment even in our days. Another rarity will wait you next to the Black Eagle Palace: The Moon Church, a late Baroque styled Orthodox Church, famous for its mechanism that was designed to follow and show the... Read more »
