Food and ambience

Local cuisine, Eastern European, Romanian, Vegetarian Friendly
Crama Domneasca was founded between the ruins of the Princely Palace (The Old Court). It's an old place that preserves the longest historical evidence from Bucharest (13th century). At Crama Domneasca, besides the authentic place, we kept the traditional Romanian cuisine, the atmosphere and the music of the old-time feasts. We prepare a lot of rich foods, old recipes, gathered from the traditional Romanian cuisine. All spiced with great wines, carefully chosen. We are proud with our artistic program, performed by Taraf Leonard Iordache, one of the best and most appreciated tarafs in the country and worldwide.

The food is overall quite good,especially the soups they serve. Still,prices are a bit too high for what they offer,regardless the location. One thing I do not enjoy most of the times is the band who sings traditional music,quite loud.

I should have listened to the guy who came out of the restaurant saying "don't do it". I should have, but I didn't (I'd like to let him know that I feel guilty for not believing him). And my friends and I paid the consequences....How can you call "Romanian entrèè" an onion and a tomato cut into four pieces and without seasoning, with two pieces of cheese (the only acceptable thing on the plate), a black salad (it is not a kind of salad, if you were wondering), three olives and some unacceptable portions of pork (I don't really know what they were and how they were "cooked") and another dish with five disgusting sauces? I know it sounds like such a bad review, which could be a fake, so please give it a try and then come back here to tell us about your experience. I could go on with the other dishes, but I prefer to skip. it was too traumatic. We spent more than 30 euros by person, without drinkig wine.More

The food was always tasty here. The atmosphere is nice. They try to give you a Romanian experience. But the service is not that great. They have a good list of wines and they are located in a special place next to the old fortress...of Vlad Tepes. It's a nice place for a friend's night dinner.More

Within the old district full of pub offering burgers, this restaurant is a very great choice to taste Romanian specialty. Highly recommended.

We arrived at around 19:00 no soup in the evening and the music starts only at 21:00 We ordered authentic good Romanian entrees, the kebab/mitity did not arrive, the waiter did not understand that we orderd also he did not come to ask if we...want extra , really indifferent he didn't ask for cooking preparation The steak is great and good but with no extras, we ordered a salad we received clean lettuce and no sauces, and dips .drinks,= great beer and good Vishniak. In summary, good food and poor service do not recommend.More

Quiet place to eat traditional Romanian food. Sarmuale , golash ,chorba and meny more good traditional Romanian foods. Nice background music and Romanian band at the evening make this one of my favourite in Bucharest.

Good traditional food and drinks (Romanian wines, beer and spirits). Decent traditional folk music. Big windows offering an exciting view to the yard of the Royal Fortress of Dracula.

We were looking for a place for a dinner on a Friday night. Not loud, not too touristy, traditional preferably. This place came conveniently close. Well there are multiple issues. We were not exactly warned that in the seating area where we were seated, live...music and dances and some big celebration will be held. Well, it's lovely really, except for bloody loud. The staff should have let us know in advance as they for sure knew. The food was mediocre so to say. Overly salty lamb, polenta drowned in fat, starters were quite dubious (well the beef salad seemed to lack beef, cheese sticks were made from fairly low cheese quality...). Soups were out of the menu, funnily enough, that seem to be the theme for a while, as I read the reviews now. Wine was nice though, I give them that. The one thing which I can't really accept in my vocabulary is insisting on tip, not only saying that the service is not included, but precomputing the value they kind of wish they receive. Seriously? Overall: not recommended.More

A restaurant serving delicious Romanian food at the bottom of Old Town. We sat outside since it was after the lunch hour. As with all outside Romanian cafes, it is difficult to survive the tobacco-addicted culture. I zeroed in on goulash and it was great...and the beef quite lean. The gravy was outstanding. You can't go wrong here and our waiter was very pleasant.More
