The atmosphere here is very rustic and the food is traditional. The restaurant includes a museum where guests are guided by the waitress. Museum resembles a traditional Moldovan house, with several artifacts dating back decades or centuries. Also have a park exposition of sovjet cars. Have a huge fireplace.

I do not know what I liked more ... Moldovan food, quality wine .... the small museum of Romanian history ....or the exclusive collection of Soviet-era cars....? I liked them all very much, which makes me think that in the future to come back here.

I was a bit worried as we had to eat what the chef selected for us but I didn't need to be as it was all delicious. The baked ham was excellent and the chicken moist and really tasty. We had a real surprise as the restaurant has a museum attached which we were privileged to be taken around. The... More

Went for a business dinner invited by our hosts in Chisinau. The Wheel of Time (as it is translated) is located in a traditional house, full of folk details. Our menu included several large plates with different types of local food, as recommended by our hosts. We had delicious pickles for starters (the watermellon is de-li-cious) and several types of...

Restaurant is nicely decorated in Moldovan style. It's a pleasure to stay there, especially in hot summer, as it is cool inside. However, service has room for improvements. You have to wait quite some time to be served. Surprisingly, drinks are served together with food, so if you are thirsty better take some water with you :-).

While a little pricey, roata vremii delivers delectable traditional Moldovan cuisine. It is great for large groups- we once had a group of thirty there and the wait staff was amazing and on time. Their cabbage placinta is the most delicious in all of Moldova! The small museum attached to the restaurant (and all throughout the grounds) is very educational... More

Traditional Moldovan food, grills, wine and beer. The house has several rooms decorated with old traditional furnishings and cellars of wine and preserves. Good location for a party in the garden if you are hosting a function.
