Pescarus is one of the few restaurants we can go to with no reservation, with a kid who can play willingly- even in a lack of a playground. Food is good, several nice dishes, lunch concept is awesome, service is perfect! Staff is very kind and extremely thoughtful with kids. We return here as often as we can! More

Peremptory service berging on the rude, absolutely uninspiring food, like a UK school lunch, and singers amplified so loudly that we could not... More

The landscape is amazing, this restaurant being placed near the Herastrau Lake. They have live music and very fresh food. The lunch menu is very tasty and at the best price in town. A lovely place to enjoy a nice meal with friends or family.

This is one of the restaurants where the communist party members went during those days. It is nicely restaured and is now operated by City Grill (the same owner as Caru' cu Bere or the many Trattoria around Bucharest). This was the first and so far the only time ever in Bucharest where the waiter offered to replace a fish... More

Got to visit the Pescarus Restaurant as part of luncheon after departing a riverboat cruise. Was a group luncheon so food had been preordered. Excellent location on Lake Heren w/part of restaurant overlooking the lake. Lunch included salad, roast port w/ vegetables. The flan dessert was very good.

Born in 1939 and revived in 2015, Pescarus Restaurant is, once again, the place to be for the merry people of Bucharest and their guests from all over the world. With its lakeside location in Herastrau Park, Pescarus is the ideal option if you want to eat, drink and party Romanian style and then have a siesta on the terrace, - or even on a bench in the park - right under the willows which gave witnessed so many crazy nights.
