Traditional kitchen

Only positive experience, cheap and delicious food. Service was just great. This place seems to be a fast food chain for locals but it is totally different for international travelers. The menu is very extensive with a great variety. Be sure, you will not be hungry after this place.

Have been to this restaurant twice and can't fault it. The menu is extensive, the food is freshly cooked and everything is very reasonably priced.

The food was good or at least way above average. Drinks and deserts are really cheap. Service was average...sometimes fast sometimes slow. Some deserts might seem pulled out of the freezer and into the oven. Overall ok :)

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.

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

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.
