On a good weather day, this is the perfect place in Bucharest to relax and chill. It is set in a garden as the name suggests. The menu is extensive and interesting. Even though there are many dead and killed animals on the menu, there at enough choices for normal people who are not savages and these are well marked... More

What a Nice spot. Located adjacent to a very large boulevard with loads of traffic, but you couldn't hear a single car from the café. The food was great, the waiters were observant, the lemonades were fantastic and the prices absolutely reasonable. We had salad, pasta, lemonade, coffee and a glass of whitwine. Absolutely a place to go if you... More

Definately not an 'over the top place'. Most seating outdoors or in a sort of large greenhouse. However, food was good and some interesting veggie dishes, coffee and wine very good and juices are fresh (which can be a shock to people used to cartons). Atmosphere very student / intellectual and decor is basic but interesting.

We went here just to have a coffee with our friends. The place is friendly and cozy. The coffee was very good but the orange juice? Great! They sure didn't spare those oranges! I definitely recommend you to try it! Oh, and the service was very good to. Fast and efficient.

I was pleasantly surprised to find not only a more sophisticated environment where students and teachers seem to be at peace (and at ease) but also a healthy selection of salads, soups and sandwiches. I really enjoyed my visit and meal!

First things first. Now, in the winter time this outside place is closed and they have the "Coffee Verona" that is in the basement of "Carturesti". Simple, cozy looking place with some retro wannabe look. Immediately as we arrived we got the menus (these still had the "Gradina Verona" logo and were just slightly updated since summer to better fit... More

This is an outdoor restaurant near Piata Romana. They have a limited menu with beer, mixed drinks and non alcoholic choices. It's nice when it's warm. It's in the back off another building. You have to walk down a short alley to get to it.

The lemonades are definitely a great pick, but other than that in the summer time it takes ages to get your food and drink. The staff cannot handle the workload. The food is usually good, even great. The place is nice in the summer (should try it now in the winter season as well). The prices are a bit high,... More

It is a quiet garden corner of bucharest, if you want to drink something with your friends this place is good enough for a quiet evening.

Nice architecture in the basement of a historic building in the hyper-center of Bucharest. Trendy place with interesting food, o think fusion style, very creative bytes, you will ask "what I am eating here?" Staff friendly. Nice terrace open when weather is ok.

Thank Alexandru S

An oasis of peace and green in the middle of the city, with friendly waiters and a good vibe. Romanian wines by the glass, natural home made drinks and vegetarian/vegan friendly food. Great for long lazy afternoons or laid-back evenings out on the terrace with friends, while for brunch it makes a brilliant (and bargain) alternative to the big, expensive hotels. A must see for the first visit to Bucharest.
