It happened today to see the best waiters in Romania, in this Café. I was very impressed with their friendliness and relaxed attitude but very attentive and efficient. The food was good as well. It was slightly expensive but I guess it is a normal price for that part of the city. I would go again, definitely.

After a two hour trek through the city of Bucharest, my friends and I decided to grab a bite. I was famished and for me, that's when even the crappiest, cheapest food tastes delicious. We stopped at Van Gogh because we had a good previous experience and the location is pleasant. When we opened the menu, I saw the exorbitant... More

We had breakfast which was nice. Service was a bit slow and i had to ask twice to get my water. The setting was nice and vibrant.

We came here for lunch but actually ate at about 4pm - it was a Sunday and so were able to enjoy the all-day brunch menu. As exciting as this sounded we did just end up with an omlette and it was slightly disappointing. It is quite good value given its central location but I wasn't as impressed as I'd... More

Whilst visiting bucharest we stopped here initially for a few drinks but ended up eating here as the food looked great and was great and at a reasonable price too. The staff were friendly and helpful and would definitely recommend a visit.

Stopped in here for a nice lunch and were not disappointed. Very cool atmosphere and lots of choice. Decided on smoked salmon salad (me) and caprese salad (hubby). Both very nice - however the dressing on the salmon salad was a bit much. Would revisit.
