I booked a wine tasting via AirBnB. Daniel, the son of the owner, is a mechanical engineer who pursued a degree in tourism and a sommelier certification to help in the family business. His father owns the hotel and happened to be on the patio...outside of the wine tasting. Daniel is kind, friendly, personable. This was a great experience that I was much more personal than another wine tasting at a well known wine bar. The small bites were delicious and well paired with wine. Daniel was very knowledgeable about the terroir and the varietal. I was treated like family. At the end, I received a bottle of red wine that I actually opened when I returned to the hotel for more small bites prior to leaving Bucharesti.More

When in Bucharest do not miss this gem of a Resturant. We met the owner and he shared some excellent Cold War stories. He also shared some drinks with us. Total hospitality and super friendly guy. The food was amazing. We tried some local delicacies...and they were lovely. We had some massive main courses and we were totally full up. Glad to walk back to the Christina plus hotel to walk off our gorgeous food. You won’t regret eating here it’s magic. Pay what you think it’s worth. We paid London prices. It was excellent.More

The food prepared in this restaurant is the best which we had in Bucharest (and we were born in Romania...). Each dish was fresh, tasty, colorful, like in a famous Michele restaurant. The famous Romanian desert "papanasi" included 2 small, fresh, fluffy and very tasty...items with white creme and cherries jam. My wife ordered twice.They were better than in a very fancy restaurant in town which we visited... It is highly recommended to try also the local "tuica" (a strong alcohol prepared from plums with a specific flower) and the cherries liqueur.More

My wife and I stayed at the hotel after a disastrous trip by Lufthansa from Frankfurt. We were met by our transport to the hotel who was very kind and helpful and well briefed by the hotel. We had dinner in the restaurant and were...assisted by a youthful waiter who assisted us with the initially challenging tablet showing the menu. After a dreadful travel it was restful andbin a very colourful and tastefully decorated we enjoyed the food the environment and the staff attention greatly. We had soup a local dish and a local desert and local beer fir myself and a local wine for my wife! The food was wholesome well prepared for me a little too much but as I said to the waiter please explain to the chef it was outstanding but I could not finish it! We especially liked the local desert! Another couple who returned to Roumania on an annual basis said it was the best hotel in Bucharest for money and service! We met the owner later who was genuinely interested in our opinions and reactions! We have travelled the world in Europe and Asia and have not found a hotel or restaurant where we felt more cared for genuinely. As I have a disability this attention and attitude from ALL I found exceptional! The restaurant we used often rather than our usual practice of one visit only.More

The dinner offer here is that you pay what you think the meal is worth - there is no price list and you select your meal from an ipad tablet. We stayed overnight at the hotel and decided to dine in. We ordered the lamb...cutlets and vegetables. Sadly, when the meal arrived it was inedible. The cutlets were almost black and it was like eating chewing gum. We politely declined the meals and, at the hotel manager's suggestion, dined at an Italian restaurant (Galletto) just around the corner. A beautiful meal.More

I am sorry that you felt you had a bad experience at the restaurant, I am afraid though that maybe you were put off by the color of the lamb chops. It is almost black, but not because they are burnt or anything, but because...More

The menu selection from a tablet was a different experience. Fun and nice for sure. But the service is quite slow even though we were the only one eating... I wanted to enjoy a gorgonzola chicken...but half of the chicken was raw so not really...enjoyable (though the taste and mix with gorgonzola was a very good idea). Then for the dessert i went for chocolate fondant... But this was totally liquid. Nothing like a cake... Fondant doesnt mean totally liquid.... And this was not pleasant. Didnt ask to change it though as service was rather slow and had been long enough there. So good thing is we pay what we want...i asked a sum and im still waiting for my change. Happened 15 minutes without seeing anyone... So we decided to leave....More
