A wonderful ambiance but terrible serving times and quality

The ambiance of this old restaurant is enchanting. Have a beer here or a "mititel" with french fries and it'll be enough. Listen, after 19:00, to traditional live romaniam music. But that's all: the serving is terrible. Most of the waiters (especially male ones) have terrible manners and the food... read more

Food was lovely in a very picturesque and traditional Hungarian trader's entrepot setting. However, staff was very unfriendly and the venue was under renovation so we could not enjoy it throughly.

I will not deny the charm of the place as highlighted by previous guests, it is undeniable. However, our experience as a party of 5 having diner at Manuc's han become unbearable. I will give quote on quote the dialogue I had with our waiter: My question to the waiter: what would you recommend from the menu? Answer: I do... More

Nice atmosphere in central courtyard with musicians playing. There is no nonsmoking section and for some reason the Romanian cigarettes tend to have a very strong odor. The eggplant purée appetizer had a nice smokey flavor. The schnitzel was dry and tough and wine overpriced running about $40US for a bottle of Romanian red

The building is very nice but the service horrible! The waitress (a blonde one) was very rude! We didn't even eat there as she was so annoying I couldn't stay anymore

Dear Hanul lui Manuc;) that was my second time in Bucharest after two years and I still love every food and drink that comes out of your kitchen !! Couldn't surprise me better by keeping the standards and quality at the same level ! Thinking about Romania - this place comes first to my mind, just simply love it :)

Excellent food, fantastic menu. What a great choice the menu had. We just couldnt decide what to have so we chose a meat ball dish in a tomato and beef sauce with dumplings. FANTASTIC. We love Bucharest and we are going back there again. Yayy

One of the top tourists points in the old town, this is a historical inn,nicely preserved.In summer months,the courtyard and the surrounding balconies create a fantastic atmosphere.However, the whole concept is currently being disturbed by renovations (hotel rooms on the top floor will be added).At the same time the food and service, are just average to low.In my opinion,this could...

The location is nice and better than most of the other tourist traps in the old town. Food was not good (mediocre at best) service was not good. Prices are relatively high. The waiter reminded us to leave a tip. Nothing to write home about.

Let me start with the positives. This restaurant has a really cool atmosphere with an open courtyard and good food. The Strong Ale also was particularly delicious. However, this restaurant gave us the worst service we have ever received (not an exaggeration, I've only said this once on TripAdvisor). The poor service started at reception with a rather sluggish and... More
