When nature shows the way, one can only follow.
“The Vineyard Veranda” Restaurant was created in close connection with nature, with its best, most beautiful and freshest features. We chose extensive, simple lines, shaped by the surroundings, with a well-defined purpose, that of dissolving the threshold between inside and outside. You find yourself surrounded by stained glass windows, painted by nature, giving you a view that constantly changes with the sun and the breeze.
Elegant, modern and refined, the restaurant stands out through each of its carefully chosen elements. From the Varaschin furniture, specially brought from Italy, to the hand-made bar, a reinterpreted barrel, to plates and glasses bearing Mediterranean vibes.

“Food is a love that we explore our entire lives. A love that grows and nourishes on your history, ethnicity, location and family.”
From passion to perfection
“Cooking is my great and only love. I represent the fourth generation of a family of cooks. I never held another job, I went through all the stages of training and preparation, from washing dishes to fine dining.”
Cooking was serendipitous for me.
“After working for 3 years in Italy, in a bakery and a trattoria, he returned to Romania and worked at the Isoletta Restaurant, where he caught a taste for gastronomy. He stayed there for 10 years.”

The little houses and the rooms are gorgeous. Very clean, spacious, with everything you need and even more! We enjoyed our time at the terrace and embrace the quiet and the sound of nature! The bed is like a dream, we slept soooo good here!
The space around, the pool, the garden, the park, the lake, everything is so beautiful and the view is amazing!
The food is one of the most delicious food I have ever taste. If you are in the area or stay here, you must definitely try it! I promise you’ll never regret it!
The place is family friendly and also has a kids park.
Overall, Casa Timis has EVERYTHING you need for a perfect weekend or a great vacation! You have to go at least once to see!❤️

We spend an entire afternoon there, including a wonderful Lunch/Brunch with delicious food and drinks. Even the cappuccino was a great surprise with the nice “hand written” on it.
We liked all that we saw there: the surroundings, the resort style pool, sauna and more than everything, liked the Rooms.
We had the chance to meet Alex (a knowledgeable manager over there, great, friendly person) and he gave a tour in his electric vehicle and we were fortunate enough to get to see all around and also the work in progress to one of the rooms.
For everyone looking to spend a nice afternoon or maybe few days…hey! Look for it!! You’ll be pleasantly surprised. mai puțin

We had an outside table and the staff was very accommodating to keep us out of the late afternoon sun. We ordered drinks and local wine which were all . The menu looked fantastic and while we didn’t eat, we saw a lot of dishes being served that looked and smelled delicious! I will be returning this fall and plan on having a client dinner arranged. Definitely worth a visit! mai puțin

A city is closed and yet seems so far, it only amplifies with its lights the mysteries of nights for the huge property. Perched on the hills, Casa Timiș seems like detached from the rest of the world. In the same time dynamic, a new beautiful pavilion raised în one day and usual maintenance actions, without being able to distract one from peace, if that ' s what you are really looking for.

The views are breathtaking, the grounds are immaculate, the food is amazing (by far the best food we've had in Romania) and the service is top notch. We returned a few days after the party, just our family of 5 and had an excellent lunch, we got to sample more items from the menu, everything was beautifully presented and most importantly absolutely delicious. We had a chance to meet the owner (Radu Timis), his personality is larger than life, very welcoming and we could tell right the way this place for him is passion more than business. Casa Timis is a true gem hidden in the rural Chitorani just outside of Ploiesti. We are planning to return every year to visit family and now we have something else to look forward to. My wife and I will most definitely stay a few days next time, relax by the pool and enjoy the amazing food, we just can't wait. If you find your way to Romania (Bucharest/Ploiesti) this place is worth the drive, it will exceed your expectations (it did ours) mai puțin

Though the reservation did not include the option to cancel for free without a penalty, after contacting the property, they agreed to completely waive the fee and we ended up with a full refund from booking.com. The property itself was the one who made us aware that there is an event and might cause some discomfort in the evening. Truly impressed by their level of service and how important it was for them to make sure a client would be 100% satisfied even if it meant a cancellation! I can only imagine their great level of service when one visits them! we 100% will be staying there in the near future. mai puțin

Romanian traditions turned into culinary art
“Food is a love that we explore our entire lives. A love that grows and nourishes on your history, ethnicity, location and family.” Chef Nico Lontras
Nico Lontras started his career twenty-three years ago, twenty of which he spent in northern Europe. In 2003, he won the Chef of the Year award in Ireland, the country he represented in two international contests, where he received gold medals. He worked in Estonia for seven years, where he founded a chefs’ association, then in Norway, where he took over an average restaurant and raised it to the highest level of European gastronomy. He completed internships in Iceland and Spain. He had the opportunity to work with chefs from many countries, especially in international fine dining restaurants.
When he returned to Romania, he reached the Top Chef cooking contest final. This experience connected him to the gastronomic scene at home. That’s how he decided to devote himself to the reinterpretation of Romanian cuisine, a “treasure that must be preserved and developed”.
From passion to perfection
“Cooking is my great and only love. I represent the fourth generation of a family of cooks. I never held another job, I went through all the stages of training and preparation, from washing dishes to fine dining.” Chef Johnny Șușală
Chef Johnny Șușală, an autodidactic perfectionist, has permanently reinvented himself in over twenty years as a cook. He worked with famous chefs, such as Gordon Ramsey. Passionate about gastronomy and reviving old recipes, ambitious and dedicated, Johnny is a chef who puts his soul into everything he creates, making the most of his talent. Interested in simple and authentic tastes, each dish that comes out of his hands is of perfect finesse, with the greatest attention to every detail.
The beginning of his career was marked by a special moment that Johnny remembers with great joy. Maestro Gheorghe Dinică, delighted by what Johnny had cooked for him, shook his hand warmly and said: “Kid, you’re going to be great!”.
“Cooking was serendipitous for me.”
After working for 3 years in Italy, in a bakery and a trattoria, he returned to Romania and worked at the Isoletta Restaurant, where he caught a taste for gastronomy. He stayed there for 10 years. He spent his free time learning to cook from his colleagues, he also collaborated with Patrizia Paglieri. He evolved through work, put a lot of soul into it, came first at work and left last. As a culmination of his efforts, since 2018 he is part of the magical Casa Timiș team.
He loves novelty, creativity, playing with ingredients and testing new, unusual combinations. He likes to eat pasta and risotto. He enjoys cooking fish and seafood. He specialized in Mediterranean gastronomy. Among the Casa Timiș dishes, the Steamed sea wolf with rice and Mediterranean sauce and the Pasta with salmon bear his mark.
