It’s a nice looking place located in a very pretty area. The food didn’t impressed at all. The Provençal heroes chicken I had was really average. Nothing sparkling. The wine list interesting. The best thing was the freshly baked bread with mezze. And the service...More

We found this restaurant to be clean and modern Mediterranean style. The food was very good with style in its presentation. The owner, Joseph Haddad is very friendly and can help with any questions you might have. This is a positive addition to Romanian restaurants.

On the occasion of an external visit I chose this restaurant based on recommendations ... but very disappointing ... because: - they got us out of the table and we had to eat the desert that we would have given up to free the table...More

The food was amazing! I've been there twice and everything was so delicious!! The only "problem" is that the portions were very small, sometimes not enough! So I suggest to take an appetizer and a main dish.

Overpriced - there are much better restaurants in Bucharest. We waited for more than an hour for the food (salads, vegetarian mostly). Very touristy also!

We were in a large group, 12 or so. Our local hosts were telling us, "it's Caju, it's fancy", which sounded like "it's casual, it's fancy" to our foreign ears. But dress does not matter anyway, you could dress up or wear whatever. The food...More

After 2 hours of waiting for our food we found that the tip was already included in the bill. No evidence of this before and absolutely uncommon jn bucharest. If this is their philosophy they should put it on the menu. Absolutely the worst place...More

The concept of CAJU by Joseph Hadad brasserie is casual dining, with affordable price dishes, which caters to different levels of customers. It’s the place where Joseph proposed to bring to the table the tastes of his childhood, with strong North African influences. The restaurant is located downtown, on a picturesque street, behind the Romanian Athenaeum, a symbol that represents one of the main attractions of the city. The space has three areas, the centre that brings together 14 tables and is dominated by a curved wooden ceiling, each table featuring a chandelier above, made of a mix of ceramic and metal.
