We were a little disappointed in our dinner here. It is friendly and there is a large menu. Our Vin Chaud was rather thin and my husband's Club Sandwich was rather dry. I ordered the chicken sate which was just that - chicken in a peanut sauce. It really needed rice too or a vegetable to accompany it and we... More

Got a Dirty burger - you only get a medium sized burger and some frozen french fries. The mayonnaise and ketchup are small packets from Heinz :| Way overrated and for the money you can get so much more in other places.

We went in as a table of 4 and had excellent service. The food was good and the order was taken quickly with drinks arriving very quickly and the food soon followed.Staff were polite and the atmosphere was pleasant with modern decor and good range on the menu.

Went as a group at lunchtime and had a good meal - there is a wide selection from soups to salads to burgers. Nicely prepared and everyone enjoyed their meal.

We really enjoyed our time there. European style, nice list of wines. We didn't try the food, only a quesadilla which was tasty. The service was great.

We were a table of 4 on Sunday enjoying the terrace for lunch. It was full, quiet and brilliant: Nice simple food including veggie burger, fast service and nice staff with perfect English. The cheesecake is something…

Stopped here one night on a business trip. Most places in old town Bucharest are cheap, but that is not the case here. Might be one of the most expensive places in Old Town with the exception of the really fancy places. This place is not fancy, it's just expensive. On the plus side, great outdoor area for having a...

We had dinner at this place, because it looked very nice and it was very crowded inside. There was a lot of staff, yet we waited for ages overtime we called for a waiter. The food was okay, but the portions were rather small. We had a great desert, which made up for a lot of the flaws.

Thank S D
