Good restaurant, atmosphere and service

Good quality restaurant serving good value food but expensive when measured against local restaurants. Focussed on the well off and foreign visitor. Well worth a visit and just off the main centre.

Since we came at quarter past 10, we were warn that kitchen closes down in 15 minutes, our starter order was not accepted although the main course order was accepted. Since put under pressure several times... More

I was very much looking forward to dining at Pani Pit having read the reviews and was initially impressed by the outdoor garden seating and seemingly attentive waiting staff. Unfortunately, the service was error strewn (for example, water arriving without the request ice, no cutlery for the main course, no explanation that the main course came without any vegetables, etc,...

On our last night in Chisinau, we decided to go somewhere special where we could sit out and with live music. The Pani Pit was the obvious choice. It has a good reputation for its cosy ambience and good food. The prices are in the high end. There are definitely other restaurants in the city serving equally good food at... More

Pani Pit is an institution - everybody knows it, there is no risk to get lost, famous Moldovan personalities and expats eat there, it is at walking distance to anything. Still, it would not be my first choice. It is instead a safe place for a business lunch or diner. As negatives: It is nice without being cozy. Fusion in... More

The best restaurant in Chisinau after Symposium closed. Excellent meat and wine. A lovely garden outside when it's warm enough, where you can it under old trees, often with nice music.

Pani Pit has been a place for the foreigners because of its central location. It has a great atmosphere during the summer, but their changed menu and price is disappointing.
