great place to taste traditional cuisine

Greater variety of traditional food, nice interior. Soup in bread is unusual and delicious. Placindas are substantial. Good place to eat enough.

We ordered vin rosu (red wine) and pork chop and similar traditional foods. Service was quick and polite which we had experienced at another of their restaurants. Food was fresh and freshly prepared. Prices were very nice and restaurant was clean.

Chain restaurant, but a noteworthy exception to most chains. Here fast food does not mean poor quality. In fact, our friends took us to a high-end grill house on a separate occasion, yet the food at La Placinte was more enjoyable to us. Fresh, quality ingredients and good Moldavian recipes.

I have tried " la placinte" in Bucharest. Food suppose to be genuine Moldovian food with all kinds of pie fillings and borsh. Food is on the fast food side too much for my taste, as you expect from a restaurant that turned into a chain in Romania and Republic of Moldova.

This chain of restaurants is a great alternative for bigger, more expensive restaurants you will find in Chisinau. The variety is great, portions are huge, staff very friendly and helpful when it comes to chosing an unknown dish. They are located all over the city, so once in Chisinau, go and try moldovan cuisine, which is delicious.

I wouldnt say this place is fancy - just if you want to grab a bite and not spend shor of money its fine. Better not come evening cos you might wait bit longer for your order, staff not bad, look at new adds they offer - times they are better than ones in the menu..
