Situated in the heart of Sibiu, Ileana Wine Cellar is a traditional restaurant offering its guests the ultimate Romanian culinary experience. The pastoral atmosphere and the customs specific to the Mărginimea Sibiului area are now found in this excellent restaurant, where tradition is at its best.

Ileana Wine Cellar has a capacity of over 90 guests seated at tables situated in booths and in the main saloon. The sculpted and carved tables, which can seat between two and eight guests, bring the country style to life through the genuine Romanian forms, shapes and motifs used by the skilled wood craftsmen. The entire hand carved solid wood furniture and original rustic decorations make the guests feel as if they entered an authentic Romanian countryside home. From the first steps you make inside Ileana Wine Cellar, you are welcomed by the fresh smell of oak tree, by the sheepskins and folk costumes decorating the walls, by the light babbling of water coming from the ornamental traditional fountain, by the warm and friendly smiles of the waiters and, nonetheless, by the delicious smell of food filling your nostrils.

From relishing starters to mouth-watering barbecues and awesome desserts, Ileana Wine Cellar gives you the chance to try the most delicious Romanian traditional foods. Start your dinner with a glass of țuică, the Romanian homemade plum brandy, which will surely increase your appetite. For starters, try a bit of Sibiu salami, smoked lard, homemade sausages and smoked cheese. We recommend you not to miss the restaurant’s specialties, our favourite being the pork rolls à la Ileana and the Hermannstadt pork fillet. Get the most of the traditional dishes offered in the rich menu and order the “Shepherd’s dinner”, which includes polenta, cheese, sausages, pastrami and sour cream. The restaurant’s menu also offers fish, chicken, beef and mutton dishes, accompanied by delicious garnishes. If you cannot end the night without a dessert, top everything with a portion of baked apples with nuts. The wine cellar’s drink list is also very generous, as it includes a great variety of domestic and international beverages, from soft drinks to beer, house wine, liquors and coffee.
