In Bucharest's leafy north, among the embassies and mansions, this classy establishment occupies a fine 18th-century villa with a gorgeous garden terrace for summer dining (which is also heated in winter); this is a favored place for the old school air-kissing crowd, where foreigners hobnob with the rich while chef Doru Dobre cooks up a storm for his sophisticated clientele. Start with polenta topped with bacon and shaved cheese, topped with an egg and served with sour cream, or have the in-house version of sarmale, sour cabbage leaves stuffed with meat and served (of course) with polenta. The menu is not too complicated, with plenty to keep both unadventurous and keen-to-experiment taste buds happy; chicken filet is stuffed with Roquefort and finished off with bacon and Parmesan; braised ducking is served with sauerkraut, and grilled duck liver with cherry sauce. Fresh fish is available at the daily market price; their swordfish is gently fried in olive oil. Finish off with nougat glace with egg custard and maple syrup.

Nice fancy place. Food is very good. Service and atmosphere of high level restaurant. The view on park, exterior and interior are absolutely beautiful. The price is little bit higher, but it correlates with a level of restaurant

I have a point of business in Bucharest, and guests from abroad are coming in, so when I want to give them the perfect treat, Casa Doina is my place. The food is "Traditional old style Romanian", made and served to adjust to the foreign visitor. A great opportunity to learn about the local culture. The restaurant is located in... More

Casa Doina opened its doors in 1892, nearly 115 years ago and now the restaurant is serving in a building which you can see the one of the nicest examples of classic Romanian architecture. If you have a late lunch the place is really calm and you will enjoy your food in a completely silent environment. However it is also... More

I love the garden, it's amazing, the tables are far between and you do not feel crounded or annpied that the people near you talk to loud. Here you get the feeling that you can talk about anything and nobody will here. The people who serve are so fast and always there but not to up front so you feel... More

Built after the plans of the famous Romanian architect Ion Mincu this nice restaurant called initially "Bufetul de la Sosea" is one of the most appreciated both by the locals and by the visitors.

First visited this excellent restaurant 20 years ago. It was excellent then and nothing has changed. Visited twice during August. The outdoor ambience sets the scene. The menu intrigues and regardless of the choice the result is superb. Staff are friendly and totally knowledgeable. It might be little pricey but the experience is well worth it. Try it.
