We were in Bucharest for four days. We tended to walk a lot and so I was happy to find the restaurant in the Old Town. I had the blue cheese salad and madam had the smoked salmon salad. The service was comfortable and for what it was the food was good.

I've been here many times, and everytime the service is horrible. The service is very slow and there are some waiters that are quite rude.

Nice typical street cafe. Not really local and very small selection of local beer. Food menu is very minimal. Good place for a quick coffee.

This well-located cafe is just outside the Hotel Rembrandt (guests receive a 10% discount). We had a good snack lunch - fresh salads and tasty toasted sandwiches. The staff were charming and efficient but my five stars are given for the coffee - the best I tasted in 10 days in Romania - worth going out of your way for... More

Its a nice place but it takes ages before you get your beer.... So long that I can order two at the time, even when alone.... Its really a shame, if I would be the owner I would spice up my staff and stream my processes, would be good for turnover. The food is average bar food.

Illy coffee is good as always, not more than that. The place is clean and nice, prices are high as most of the very centered places.

The staff here are really friendly and the food arrives soon after your order. I liked it, but it was literally the only place I ate at so there may be better options in the area.
