I love the main dishes here and the soups. the service is better then in Andy's (I have no clue why because they have the same ownership). I always order there mamaliga, because it is really good. The best soup is zeama. Worth the money and the time. But i would strongly NOT to recommend the deserts, they are the... More

Good price for traditional food. I would say it is worth going there for fast and accesible food. Great for lunch.

I choose sometimes ''La Placinte'' to have lunch there and was never disappointed, although the service is a bit slow at that time. I would like to recommend ''Clătite cu brânză de vaci în sos de miere'' (Pancakes with cheese in honey sauce) - amazing taste, they are so soft and sweet! Really worth paying 35 Lei/2 € for this...

La Placinte is a chain restaurant based in Chisinau, Moldova that has gotten it right. They serve very high quality local Moldovan cuisine with a thought to aesthetics and cleanliness. Really. This is a very well managed restaurant with excellent service and finely trained staff. At each of the chain outlets I have eaten, the food is consistently good and... More

It is typical of tourist-friendly restaurants, and is well-regarded by locals and tourist. Mamaliga is the national dish, so I was surprised when I friend ordered Mamaliga and did not receive a side of pork, considered by some as essential for the dish. If you are interested in getting this tasty, un-kosher dish, ask for svinina (pork in Russian). My... More

The decoratians are fine, food is good, not something exceptional, a great start for those who want to try national food since the price is low and things afordable. The service is damn slow and the atmosphere is not really comfy.

This was my first visit to Moldova, so discovering new places happened every step along the way! Our meal in Chisinau was the night before we were to come back home to the US. I had the notion this was a 'Mexican' restaurant, as in the US the name would imply as much. To my amusement, I was informed by... More

The Placinte is good here, however, the rest of traditional Moldavian cuisine with very little taste. Casual, quiet and seems a local favorite. Slow service, as is so common here, they never rush you, so a great place to lunch with friends if you like Moldovania food.

It was a nice experience to try many Moldovan dishes. Price/quality is very good at this place. The service is good despite the language barrier. The atmosphere is casual and the place is very clean.
