Diners can choose from a variety of nooks and crannies in this cozy, partially subterranean eatery; waiters are decked out in camp Germanic outfits. Topping the list of popular dishes is deer calf with wildberry-and-hazelnut sauce, served with rice. Other recommendations for staunch meat eaters is the Ceaunu lu Tusa proptit în varza si malai, a hearty plate of smoked sausages, ribs, and pork pastrami, served with polenta and sauerkraut, and all smothered with a healthy amount of freshly sliced garlic. You can forgo the sauerkraut in favor of a fresh salad. There's good wild boar stew, salmon prepared in wine, and a tasty pastry of pikeperch, served with grape and lemon sauce. Leave space for the sweet cheese dumplings, served with sour cream and jam. Order a bottle from the Murfatlar Winery from the fair-priced wine list.
