Popped into this bar towards the end of our first evening in Bucharest, the place was very lively and clearly popular for a weds evening! We enjoyed a round of cocktails and then I had the yummiest hot white chocolate drink with a hot chocolate fondant cake....very delicious!

The atmoshere is cozy, nice and warm, especially in the winter. I only had some hot chocolate. The prices are pretty high, but the same as in other locations in the old city of Bucarest.

Interesting to look for those narrow streets that have been transformed into sweet restaurants. Some restaurants are decorated so artistically it is a pleasure to enjoy.... More

We stayed in here for a couple of drinks after coming back from a few days in Transylvania. The bar staff were friendly and chatty and we had some good local beer. We didn't eat the food but the atmosphere and company was good if I am ever in Bucharest again I would go back.
