Timișoara Gastro Guide

Some recommendations of restaurants, bars, caffees, pubs in Timișoara, all tested by us. The list is constantly updated, based on our travels.


Homemade is our number one choice when going to Timișoara. We love everything about this place, the wait it looks, the friendly approach the staff has and their perfectly built menu, based on simple, comfort, delicious dishes. Everything is homemade, exactly like the name suggests and it always gives you that feeling that youțre at home, enjoying a warm dinner, surrounded by friends and family. Nothing fancy, but for sure something that will fill your soul with joy.  To be checked out in winter time, to enjoy the warmth of the interior, but also during summer months, to relax in their beautiful summer garden.

Ambasada is a place for everything that has to do with culture. You will get events, gatherings, trainings, workshops, you name it. It a community that has grown around this place and that tries to make things better. They also have a small kitchen and serve some nice brunch, lunch options.

Omellete Bistro

Ideal place for breakfast, brunch and anything in between. The menu evolves around eggs in all forms, shapes and sizes.

Vinto – Gastro Wine Bar

It’s a nice gastro-wine bar with a good wine selection (Romanian and international) and with some good finger food options to go with a good wine. The cuisine is a mixture of everything, so we got to have sushi and hummus, together with an avocado burger and a very tasty pumpkin soup (although the menu might have changed since we were last there). Excellent choice for when you’re up for some glasses of wine and a light, but delicious dinner.

Suppa Bar

I immediately fell in love with this place. It’s a small place that serves 3 – 4 types of soups every day. They have cream soups, vegetarian or meat soups, to please everyone. You can have the soup there or just take it to go. The soups are so tasty and it’s such a good option for a quick, but healthy lunch.

George’s Snack Hut

A good fast-food place option. You will get grilled vegetables and all sorts of meat in a nice pita bread. They have quite a big variety of sandwiches, something that made us take too much time to decide what to have. But whatever you will chose, you will get for sure a tasty, perfectly grilled sandwich.


A rather underground place, not too many people know about. They have really good craft beer (if you get lucky, you can also try the Bereta beers – local Timișoara beer producer) and a very nice record collection you can listen to and buy.
