Located in the heart of the Old City and refurbished to appeal to a younger clientele, the pub offers both smokers and non smokers the right ambience for a night out.

Very nice cafe with great and relaxing music. It is in the center of the old city. It is suitable for a cup of coffee or for a drink. I definitely recommend boiled wine!

Well... I have been here many times, but just now I've tried the food and it was very good with fresh ingredients. I recommend Prosciutto Sandwich together with a glass of Rose Wine. The staff was also very friendly, they almost made me feel at home! Big like for this one and going there again soon!

If you´re lloking for food or drinks, in a beautiful place, then you'll like old town. Its lively streets are very hype at night. It can get a little messy late at night, but it is pretty safe.

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.
