We went to this cute restaurant ( we sat outside for lunch but the restaurant is bigger than we thought!), following a recommendation from our concierge for traditional Romanian food and we were not dissapointed, it was delicious, the waiters friendly and the price reasonable!

The garden is lovely but the food was only ok with small portions, the service was slow and the half of the beers were always just foam. It's not a bad place but Bucharest is full of great Romanian restaurants so you can definitely find something better.

Stayed at the Intercontinental Hotel and walked about 20 minutes to this small restaurant with terrace seating. Beautiful setting and excellent service (Adrian) and food for a very reasonable price

Two things stand out for me: the restaurant staff dancing and the beer. It was a warm night so we were able to get seats outside in their courtyard. There, the staff would periodically dance. The other thing was the beer - there was a local Romanian beer on tap and it was seriously cold, which I really appreciated. Strongly... More

We asked at the English bookshop and this was one of two places that were suggested. We dined in the courtyard and were well looked after with a delicious meal all at a reasonable price. Traditional entertainment.

If you're looking for something traditional and accessible, this is the place for you. After travelling through Sofia and being in Bucharest for a while, I was pretty hungry. Most places didn't cater to my allergies and weren't what you'd call "great food". This place changed all that and I went everyday. I highly recommend their schnitzel, and their homemade... More

Has a lovely night here. The sausages to start followed by the cabbage rolls were delicious. The best thing was certainly the Papanasi doughnuts which were fantastic. Staff were very friendly especially once we tried out our two words of Romanian. Really liked this place and they gave us a great night.
