I have been there many times. Whenever I go Bucharest, I always visit Van Gogh for breakfast. Delicious meals, great service and atmosphere. The prices are also reasonable. Suggest strongly. You should try out omelettes.

Hello and thanks for the nice words. Hope your girlfriend enjoyed her her hamburger once she was feeling better. The Dirty Burger is indeed one of our favorites with its juicy beef patty, melted Gouda cheese, gurkin, tomato, BBQ sauce and home-made wedges. We actually call it 'dirty' because we always end up eating it with our entire face :))... More

There are numerous cafes and restaurants around Lipscani street and this is one of the better ones (whereas some others are obviously just trying to rip off your money). There's plenty of seats outdoors but also some indoor space. The menu is long and varied enough with a good selection of fresh and vegetarian options. We had "Baby blue greens"... More

We went for lunch, using a 10% off coupon from our hotel next door. Ate inside. Both my father and I ordered the classic burger, which was pretty tasty. The wait staff was quick to our needs and the price was good. The setting has a lot of art inside which added to the decor of our experience. Was a... More

Super Smoothies, natural and cold, perfect for a super hot summer evening. Uncomfy chairs and kind of crowded.

We ate here on the 6th of August. The service is really good, better than in many other places in Romania. The Yaffa salad was great. The Baby Blue Greens salad was quite alright. The vegetarian hamburger was really tasty, though could have been more spicy. The potato wedges were reasonable. The home-made ice cream is delicious, but the scoops... More

Been there twice, in two days. The staff was friendly, the food really good and not that expensive and the nicest part was the fact that they have a children's corner, with toys and little tables. Will go there again when in Bucharest.

Good day, Thank you for taking the time to write. We are a bit confused by your review - you use words like 'average' and 'very nice' and then give us a rating as 'terrible'. We always welcome tips on how to improve. Please be so kind to provide more details about the issue with our waitresses being tanned. It's... More

We stopped here in the afternoon for lunch, it was too hot to sit outside so we ate inside. The atmosphere is definitely nice, a busy place in the center of old town. I am sure on a cooler day sitting outside would have been a good spot. They have a nice selection of beer and other drinks; many people... More
