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.

The Casa Doina was an amazing luxury restaurant in Bucharest. From the moment you step inside, you are greeted with the up most service with doormen taking your coat and seating you.

We've been 15 people on a business dinner and had reservation. (I am now wondering if this was the reason for the bad experience. Maybe they have special prices for what they thins as "suckers"?) - Super expensive for an average food. - The prices on the website are much lower than the ones in the restaurant. For example Cherry... More

Called in for coffee (and brandy!) on a cold Sunday morning. A beautiful old building in parkland. Very attentive staff and attractive table settings. Just sorry that we didn't have time to stop for something to eat.

We had the chance to visit Casa Doina for group dinner. The place itself is quite nice, with a good terrace where to have a nice drink. Service was really. Waiters were always very helpful at all times and made sure that everything was just fine. Food is ok, not the best but above average. Good choice for dinner in... More

The restaurant is one of the best in the city. Offers very tasty food, served in a very delicate way. Very comfortable tables and chairs in very nice atmosphere with a life instrumental music.. The restaurant offers a variety of wines and cigars
