A nice fast food restaurant. "La Placinte" and "Andy's Pizza" have the same owner and represent the biggest chain in Moldova. "La Placinte" is famous for its typically Moldovan cuisine. Good prices, nice services and cool design. I would recommend placinte with cheese, cottage cheese and cabbage. Don't forget to try Moldovan mamaliga (similar to polenta). "La Placinte" has a...

Nice restaurant specialized in pies . They serve local cuisine, very tasty soups and delicious pies. You can also choose different cooked meals, with pork, lamb or beef . The deserts are very tasty, I chosen Caciula lui Guguta, some kind of pancake with cream and sour cherries. There are 12 restaurants in the Capital, they recently open one in... More

Our party of four enjoyed a variety of dishes and each was satisfying. While our meat and potato options were typical eastern European, they were fine with one little surprise of mushroom sauce on the Varenyky. This made a simple dish even better! Also, they serve a ginger tea which is good and be sure to order Napoleon for dessert.

Visited here with our family and enjoyed it very much. The atmosphere is bright and cheery with colorful decor -large shiny wood tables in booths fill the place so there is plenty of seating. I loved the food too --I believe it is Eastern European with a wide variety of choices. The namesake placinte are very good-yummy in fact--Kind of... More

One of the best things about travelling is getting to taste the local cuisine and discover new specialities. Perhaps the best way to taste traditional Moldavian food is to get someone’s grandmother to invite you over for dinner. But assuming you don’t manage to track down a granny, "La Placinte" is the best place to take a local meal.
