good food, nice place

They do serve an excellent french food there. We like to go there from time to time, but I find this place a little bit to expense.

I've been here so many times in the last two years that I can't even remember, therefore I can say without a doubt that even though Escargot Bistro has one of the coziest gardens I've ever been to, the thing they excel at is the food. This is the main reason you should pay them a visit - you'll find... More

The location it's an looking house but nicely decorated and pleasant ambience. The menu it's written on a board as it should be in a French bistro. The food it's different from one day to the other depending on the inspiration of the cook. The taste it's great, specially the escargot that I really liked. My second course was also... More

An invitation to dinner at a French bistro, from an Englishman in Bucharest?! Funny what globalization can do! But, looking at this big guy, one could immediately tell he enjoys gourmet food and fine drinks, so, he might know something… “You’ll be impressed”, he said. I was not very impressed, at least not by the location: an old house (a... More

I believe this is one of the best restaurants in Bucharest and the first that I can compare with the authentic restaurants in France. The food is delicious (my personal favorite being the escargot black pasta and la tourtière landaise for dessert). The location is absolutely charming with a very beautiful garden. The prices are fairly high but it's worth... More

I said ”sweet”, because the first thing that really impressed me, in this charming place, was an irresistible dessert, the chocolate covered figs. Along with a glass of prosecco and some jazzy music, the cozy atmosphere at the Escargot Bistro made me feel like I was far away, a galaxy away, from the fussiness of my daily life. It’s always...

I was here as part/effect of an "official"/pre-arranged lunch, together with my work colleagues. The first impression - that lasted until we left the premises - was the one involving the personnel. At least the girl who took care of our (extended) table was surprisingly shy for a place like this. I mean this is not a pizza or a... More

Had one of the best meals in Bucharest at this sweet, charming place. Upon entering we were already greeted by the mouth watering, buttery fragrance of sizzling escargots been prepared in the open kitchen facing the pavement. if the weather is good I'd recommend sitting outside in the courtyard under the apple trees and grape vines that are beautifully intertwined....

Escargot is a romantic and intimate restaurant located near Piata Galati (ask for St. Silvester Church and after that for directions :-p). Great french cuisine. Escargots bourguignons are great, as starters, also the duck and black pasta as main courses. Desert: I will say to go for the Tourtiere landaise. There are just 6-8 tables, wich is great. Very good... More
