We walked in on a Thursday night with no reservation and got a table straight away. We were served upstairs by a male member of staff who was extremely please my and friendly. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. This cafe is must go for any tourists or locals.

It is a good place to eat and drink something, have a quite big menu. I recommend the burger and one of breakfast (look foto). Impeccable service waiters, very helpful, nice and careful. Prices are not low but I think it deserves a try. Highly recommend this place.

Lovely open space with grand décor and a big open bar. Art work themed around Van Gogh making for an interesting spot to sit and gaze about whilst enjoying a good coffee. Smart waiters in waistcoats and fancy cappuccinos. Yum.

Unfortunately, despite the food being edible/mediocre...our experience was pretty poor here. It is a nice ambience but the waiter was abysmal....he forgot our order and had to come back and ask (didn't write it down the first time). Then brought the wrong dish. When the correct dishes eventually arrived an hour later they were not as described on the menu.... More

I went out last night with my friends in this cafe shop. I loved both the location and the local service at the Grand Cafe Van Gogh. The place looks like "home Van Gogh", is very relaxing and nice and Madalin (the waiter who served us) was very respectful and kind. I really enjoyed the experience and I recommend this... More

We ate here a few times, it is not the best quality food but we enjoyed relaxed meals and drinks here. The staff are very friendly and the service excellent, all spoke very good English. We liked the general atmosphere and surroundings. It is centrally located in Bucharest.

Good food, Asian chicken with rice, really tasty. Quesadilla a bit like a toasted cheese sandwich, but then I suppose it is! Really helpful, friendly and attentive staff. A good place, will come back!

The Cafe is located at the heart of the city center. The place is decorated with various Van Gogh paintings, cozy atmosphere. Service was excellent, polite and fast. We ordered a double cappuccino, and orange juice and a salmon toast, which was delicious. Price of everything was good and in accordance with Bucharest standards. We had a good time, and... More
