Description: 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.

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

For a foreign turist it might be a bit expensive. For a business travel turist, it is a very good chance to experience roumanian cuisine in a luxurious atmosphere. Very good service, near perfect. If somebody would like to try "mici", here I had the best ones. The taste was right but the texture was proper for such a high... More

This restaurant is hosted by an old villa which is built in a 100% pure Romanian architectural style. It has a nice interior, not luxurious but nice and warm. The gardens outside are great for evening summer dinners around large tables and can easily accommodate large groups. The cuisine is Romanian and Italian and the dishes are well made, cooked...

The best Romanian food place for visitors. For nice weather I would recommend the garden, which is great. Otherwise the indoor is fine too. One of the oldest restaurants in Bucharest offers good service, pretty good English, nice wine list and tasty food. The cabbage rolls aka sarmale are among the best in town.

Must visit if you want to see an outstanding piece of romanian arhitecture. The villa was built 120 years ago and is inspired by traditional romanian homes. In the summer it has a large garden that is used as a terrace. Food is good and service is average. The usual clients are businessmans and politicians, but on weekends there is... More
