I wish I could say anything about the food or atmosphere, but I never got past the entrance hall. It was Thursday night at 9pm, I got in, the first thing I laid eyes on was a younglady mopping the floor. I asked if they were closed, they paused, seemingly embarrassed. Eventually they agreed we could stay. The restaurant was... More

The atmosphere is one of the best that I have found in Bucharest. I would go to Escargot Biistro whenever I feel like wanting something special, opposite from mainstream. The garden is just beautiful, with tables spread around, at a convenient distance. For me, the food was as expected, very good, very "artistic". The menu is written on a blackboard... More

Fine cuisine in a cozy and nice bistro. During summer there is also outside sitting on a nice terrace in the garden with apple tree around that makes it rather homey. I had pork with orange and polenta with the spices which was DELICIOUS. Also the desert with pancake with almonds is an excellent finish for a very good dinner.... More

If you are out to be entertained, and not just simply fed, this is the place to go. It's quiet and smart but never, ever boring, because of the carefully balanced mix of food, people and music. And it's not mainstream, so you can actually enjoy dining out without the hassle of a large, noisy crowd. Oh, and you should... More

I was there to eat 2 years ago and had a very bad duck breast and a soup that was more like a puree. But I heard that things were changing there so I wanted to give a second chance while I was very hungry around lunch time. I checked the website and went for lunch. Unfortunately it was closed...

As the title of my review says: "excellent food"! Went there with my girlfriend, tried the escargots as a starter, then salmon and pasta with escargots & mushrooms for the main course. The menu is quite simple, but we didn't mind since our choice proved great. Same goes for the selection of wines - limited menu available, but we took... More

A wonderful place with a fairy tale garden fit for each season, where you will spoil your senses, in a warm and welcoming ambience. The food is sophisticated and varied range, good music sounds pleasantly in the background, the service is excellent and the owner is very friendly. Tyson, the cat, is also a connoisseur of the delicious dishes. A... More

In a small welcoming garden (which has nothing to do with the rest of the world) we've enjoyed excellent food and sparkling conversation. After spending more than three hours there, we wouldn t wanna leave the place... When you go to Escargot, you must ask for the chef and one of his amazing desserts! Simplicity is indeed the ultimate sophistication...

The charm and beauty of this intimate little restaurant is unique. It is my favorite restaurant in Bucharest. The garden is extraordinary. There interior is also cozy. The selections are varied, if somewhat few , and I have always been delighted with what I chose. The escargot are exceptional but even if that is not exactly your cup of tea,... More
