I really enjoyed the food at La Taifas. We got some small antipasta and very tasty steaks with good sauce ( one with mushrooms and one spicy) and grilled vegetable - can be recommended!!! Traditional and very well prepared, friendly staff speaking English and not expensive 40€ incl 3 big beers.

Traditional restaurant located in the heart of the city. Excellent food and a great selection of wines, so only one visit is not enough. The service and live music was excellent. Try the vegetables, soups and cakes but better try all dishes. Expensive for Moldova but really cheap comparing with european restaurants.

It was good enough that we went twice for dinner in three days. Amazing selection of local dishes and also of salads of every kind. Mamaliga was top notch. Chisinau beer on draft. Live music.

The restaurant brings you in the atmosphere of old Moldavian countryside just after you go down from the street into the basement where the restaurant is. You are welcomed there with a glass of wine and a punch of nuts. The life music (evenings) and the vast offer of traditional Moldavian food dishes make you feel very good. The wine... More

This is your typical tourist restaurant. It's dressed up with local decor and has local dishes. It's a bit expensive and the food was hit or miss. There was also a weird system where you push a button to call the waiter. Probably the best bet to get real Moldovan food.
