First stupid idea was to come by car. We arrive earlier so the parking was empty. At departure we've spend aprox 15 minutes to argue with a truck driver to take out his car from the parking. It is not normal for the customers to...More

Very nice location on the lake in Herastrau park. Excellent wines, Italian fair with homemade ice cream. Service was excellent. Lobster spaghetti nicely done. Black cod also recommended.
