Food is of very questionable quality. Attending staff is not trained. They approach the guests in a unfriendly manner, are unprepared to help, become easily irritable and rude.

Quirky menu to go with some rather eccentric service (and occasional live musical interludes) - but on the whole an enjoyable meal at reasonable value.

Absolutely amazing, some of the best food I have had in Bucharest, along with friendly staff, great service and a great atmosphere. Really surprised to see so many negative reviews, as I was blown away by how good this restaurant is, and am already planning...on returning here again soon.More

Tourist trap with bad service. Food was on the level of low end fast food and service was very rude. This is not romanian restoran.

Food was of poor quality and had a severe intoxication after dinner. Staff was unfriendly and argumentative. Did not make any attempt to be pleasant and responded our questions with irritable tone.

You can't sit outside because the restaurant's policy doesn't allow it after 7pm. What policy? Why? No explanation. Taking our order we waited 20 minutes, just to take an order takes half an hour! Would not recommend

I heard and read a lot of positive and negative things about this place, so I decided to try this restaurant. So this is my experience. The food is realy tasty and authentic. The prices are average. I eat fish soup, my husbant eat a...veal spcialities , tasty but the french fries were oily and together drink house wine. ( good one). And together try a romamian traditional sweet. The stuff are politely and ok. If you want an authentic romanian taste, don’t miss this place.More

Expensive for what is delivered, but service is friendly, and food is tasty. Plain croquettes were good.

I had hoped for a memorable dinner here. Very rude staff, except for one. They did not record my reservation. Food mediocre - lamb chops fatty, greasy and served without sauce except for the mayonnaise & fruit jam which I requested and for which I...was charged extra. Tip was applied to the bill without asking if I wished to pay it. Not a good experience.More

I ste the sarma with sour cream an polenta. I loved it, it's quite different from home. Definitively worth a try...a tip- try that green pepper while eating the whole meal not when you've already finished it like me 😂 Ursus beer is good.

A friend recommended this resto for lunch. 1) I ordered Baked duck leg cooked in white wine.I PRECISED to the waiter that I wanted the duck skin to be CRISPY. I repeated without being dry on the inside. he understood. when it arrived sauce was...OILY duck full of fatty skin, no taste of wine. I kept quiet since we were invited.My partner ordered turkey ...but told me it was not fresh , "maybe re-heated" she precised . While having our beer a mosquito was flying and kept coming to our list of menu..I killed the first and second one within 5-7 mins,,,but the THIRD ONE escaped. we ordered apple pie (for a child) for dessert but they brought CHEESE PIE !! within 20 seconds we saw an ant coming into the plate , my invitee friend discreetly flicked it away from the plate...a few minutes later ANOTHER ANT crawling beside the pie INSIDE THE plate...my invitee said to the girl "you have had enough now, time to leave". Did the ants come from the kitchen via the plates or from the floor via legs of the table?? what a shame!!! we did not complain to the manager nor did my invitee. But b4 leaving , I did whisper to the waiter that I wanted "CRISPY SKIN of the duck not unhealthy oily fat skin. He saw I left half of it unfinished on the plate.!!More

Lacrimi si Sfinti Restaurant is an absolute gem that takes romanian dining to a new level. From the moment you step inside, you’re greeted with an ambiance that perfectly balances elegance and coziness. The menu is a funny work of art, offering a symphony of...forgotten Romanian flavors that showcase Dinescu’s mastery in combining traditional interwar recipes in a friendly no fuss contemporary Romanian cuisine that u will remember.More
