This restaurant wants to be an upscale, posh, fun place with good food and fancy vibes on the lakeside. They manage to get the prices right (on the high side) but that is about it. The food was a big disappointment. Do not pretend to...be an Italian restaurant when the kitchen is not able to produce some half-way decent pasta. My wife’s were drained in oil and the carbonara I had was simply mediocre the truffles they put on it did not make it any better. Wine selection limited and poor. Service ok-ish when around but clearly understaffed. All in all I would not recommend as there is disconnect between aspiration and reality.More
They just do not respect their customers! If they would do, they would have to respect the pandemic rules (space between tables, terrace only outdoor, not covered in "plastic") and also respecting reservations (not just giving tables in absolutely chaotic manner to whom just insists...more...).
Just a bad client experience overall...More
Amazing location, very nice staff but the whipped cream in the cannoli... no, please, don`t do this to me... just...just... don`t!
Cannoli sicilani are filled with ricotta, either you change the name in the menu, or follow the right recipe

I didn t like the reservation style
We came and we found 2 empty tables.
But they gave us the worst small table located on back lateral of the building. We were with the kids, 4 persons and we all eat and make normal consumation...I sugest to all customers to avoid the back lateral tables. No view, feeling like eating in a cage, not nice feeling to eat in herastrau top restaurants.
Burger good, one pizza and pasta basic not good, one spinach pizza good, and desert it was identic cu ikea style desert!! Basic, empty, my child who loves sweets didn t finish it and didn t like it
In that period i checked and also that 2 tables from main garden were emply. I checked the tables during my dinner , 4 times, empty.When we left the local still empty that 2 tables and another3, total 5 empty tables and they put us 4 persons to eat to lateral back table. Shame for the atitude and for bad organisation, shame becouse you have this kind of keeping what is good empty and lying that they are reserved.
This policy of reservation table we know it but for yesterday your place has bad food, worst desert, and zero view, you made us distroy our friday dinner ! Shame!More
A restaurant with good food (congrats to the chefs/ cooks), maybe a part of the dishes (salads) with too much salt for my taste, but unfortunately a place with pretty bad reservation management and service, starting from the reception (although having a reservation, for more...than 15 minutes, there was no available table for us), client attendence, serving and till the bad smell at the ladies room.More
We were visiting one of the most beautiful parks in Bucharest and we saw a nice restaurant along its shore. We entered and looked around but no one was there to greet us. We saw more empty tables and sat at one of them. No...waiter looked at us for at least 10 minutes. We tried to get a waiter to acknowledge us and bring a menu. He just looked annoyed and said 'this table is reserved, you must leave', while no reserved sign was on any of the empty tables. 'we just don't have any more signs, maybe we can fit you indoors'. As I prefer to spend my money where people are more welcoming, we decided to leave and we moved to Trattoria Il Calcio, a few meters down the road. Indeed, a very pleasant experience there. Highly recommend it.More
Good for sunday lunch in autumns, nice garden situated in elegant place over the lake. Not good becouse they refuses us to make a basic pizza hawaiana for kids, but the food was good, and the waiters polite.
Pasta good, special taste!!
And the kids...eate all the burgers, so yes i recomand then for sunday lunch with family!!More
