Welcome to Bran Castle, we are glad to have you as our guest!
We hope you enjoyed Bran with its fresh air, the amazing nature of the place, the old medieval fortress, the nighttime residence of the legendary Count Dracula and Queen Marie's house of her heart.
It would be a pity to miss the last touch of this perfect holiday painting: a memorable stop to “Casa de ceai” Restaurant. All the roads lead to Bran: from the past to the future and backwards, from the east to the west and back, a border that separates and then unites roads wandered by sounds, colors and flavors.
At this frontier, you have the chance to join a culinary adventure where pieces of local history are boiled in our full of personality pot, in order to display delicious food on the plate. Such as: double-concentrated soups with cut into strips flavored pancakes, nutmeg and tarragon; Romanian soups, cooked with lovage and thyme; dishes originating from different villages, later adapted to the nobles' cuisine: beef, duck, turkey, lamb and fish with seasonal or stinky cheese, wrapped in a variety of savors, with lemon or forest fruits, powdered with mint, coriander, saffron and thyme; fresh and tangy vegetarian dishes.
The spice road naturally ends with a surprising dessert, in which raspberry sauce, milk jam and rose petal powder have all creeped into.
And because you are here, in this legendary place, we are offering you the "Ritual" cake, to remind you, with each grain, of the people’s power to return, generation after generation, to the same crossroads they once loved.
