I had a lovely snack and Aperol Sprtiz on the patio. The food was pretty good, I got one of the toasties. The waiters were all very friendly and accomodating and even brought me some free postcards as I spent some time catching up on my correspondence.

You usually browse online to see good places to eat rated by the tourists but they end up disappointing you when you actually try it yourself. I thought that this would turn out to be so but NO. I was solo touring the city for a day and decided to go here. Very good ambience with both breakfast, lunch, dinner... More

Lovely place in the middle of Bucharest. Ended up here for a catch up with some friends. Was able to hear each other as the music was not too loud.

We were staying next door in the Rembrandt Hotel and arrived into Bucharest quite late at night - so we had dinner here before bed. The food was delicious and fresh. We also got fresh smoothies and they were lovely. The prices were great for the quality food we got. Also, the server was very friendly. It was a great... More

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful as this was our first day in Romania and were still trying to get our bearings. We had a small lunch and the food was wonderful. The beer was great. (I recommend the Ciru... More
