We were in a hurry and they've served us quickly despite the fact that was a big table and everybody asked for something different. All the dishes were savourous and everything looked good. Great salads and soups.

We were in town for two nights and on the first paid a visit here, only to have a quick look at the menu before the electric went out. After twenty minutes we left and returned on our second night and were glad we did. The staff speak some English and the food is tasty and great value. We shared... More

I was somewhat surprised to see this restaurant rated so highly, since it is basically a Wendy's type cafeteria. It is, in fact, part of the Andy's Pizza chain, which is very popular in Chisinau There is nothing wrong with it. It is quite popular locally, judging by the number of people there when we visited on a Monday evening... More

Tried local food like mamalyga, placintas, papanosh (or smth like that) It was really delicious. Worth the price if you want to get to know Moldavian cuisine.

We got suggested by the hotel receptionist to La Placinte for a traditional Moldavian meal. The choice was right! The meal was fantastic, I ordered a grill curcan fillet with vegetable aside, the meat cooked perfectly and juicy! Dessert was great too! (Tried the one with the little bee decoration! Very moist cake and nice flavor) great food with good... More

If you look for MD traditional food, however you're not really into spending too much money, this is a place you might consider. The food is OK, the service is somehow lazy and sometimes unprofessional, but for the prices they have there, this might be something to expect. Either-way, it is woth a try.

This was the first restaurant we visited during our trip to Chisinau for a taste of Moldovan food and it didn't disappoint. We were a big group, do we pretty much ate our way through half of their menu - from soups to pastry to main course meals - everything was delicious. I had Tocana meat rounded off with delicious...
