If you feel like having Dutch food, good coffee and a nice terrace, this is the place to go. We went for the first time for breakfast and had to wait for more than 45 minutes to get our order, but the food was delicious and the restaurant offered us 10% discount for the delay which we thought was a...

Good spot for a drink. Misters over the tables to keep you cool. Try a bottle of the local Silva dark or blonde beer.

Right in the Old Center, with nice atmosphere, nice staff, very good coffee and coffee products and good food. The terrace is nice and cozy and modern. Nice place for summer evenings and winter days

The classic burger was cocked for perfection and the wedges were amazing with Tasty Honey lemonade. The atmosphere in the restaurant was perfect specially outdoor tables.

We stayed here a couple of times for an after dinner drinking. A very pleasant place to stop for a while. But the very peculiar thing it's the kindness of the staff, very different from the rest of the city.

Tourist trap. Friendly staff, abysmally slow service, horrid food. Interior full of framed posters. Coffee was good though.

What a place, really enjoyed this during our stay in Bucharest. The service was the best we had in Romania, charming restaurant and the food was sublime, and very inexpensive. Miss the food already.

Went there to do some work - place itself is pretty nice, although they have no eye for details at all - cheap plastic cameras visibly mounted, the cleaning stuff is parked in the front entrance, some of the furniture looks really rugged, but not in a good way, a shiny LED lit Coca Cola advertisement grossly contrasting the imperial...

Being Belgian myself I felt awkwardly at home here with my Dutch fellows. Met many friends and heard the Dutch language during Holland football matches. The atmosphere is great and the food is fantastic. It's a cosy place with a grand location in Centru Vechi. Their terrace is my favorite aspect and during the summer will be yours too. This... More

My husband and I stopped here for lunch on a hot afternoon. Our Romanian friend had recommended this restaurant and the cooling misters on a relatively quiet street were inviting. Our Dutch-inspired entrées were delicious and our server was very friendly with great English.
