Excellent choice, fabulous, a place to know and to go. You can choice your dishes as you want vs the countries visited by the owner. Creative approach of refined gastronomy and as well gluten free. May be add food for vegetarians even if for them...you can find something. Nice garden and china. A meeting with the chief at the end could be really a plus. Really famous for Bucharest. Typical restaurant for asia or mallorca 😉 great experience. Well doneMore

We decided on a last minute weekend trip to Bucharest and had very little planned or researched. The Artist showed up on a few blogs so we decided to give it a try. Best decision ever. In general we were surprised with the food and...wine scene in Bucharest but this was a world apart. We did their lunch menu with a wine paring. No regrets.More

Gone is the spoon tasting, cucumber sorbet and quite frankly explosive flavors from the food. This used to easily be my favorite restaurant in Bucharest to share with friends. I also know Covid has challenged us all but their is no excuse to charge these...prices for such a poor experience. The staff was very attentive and the only reason to give 2 stars. My advice is go back to your previous model or expect to fail.More

the most hard to find in Bucarest its a good restaurant who is always perfect ( food, wine, environment, staff,) The Artist is one of them. Its my 6th visit this year and i m always happy to come back, the waiter are perfect ,...present but also discret which let some intimacy, The wine are very good and come at the good temperature, The food its very very good, very close in what we can find in France, the cuisine that Artist make me think at Thierry Marx Style, which one of the best chef for molecular cuisine. this is actually for me the only restaurant with such high standard in Bucarest and i tried many of them. We can feel that they really respect the product and try to put forward on all its forms. Thanks you again.More

I had read about The Artist and one July Tuesday evening as I was strolling in the neighborhood and was a little hungry I gave them a call to book a table. It was half past nine PM. On the other end of the line...a puzzled voice answered: We close at nine! And just hanged up! No Goodnight, no By, no F...You no nothing. Just hanged up. Like I was the crazy one. And that's not all. The tone of the voice was the cherry on top. It just reminded me of an old school teacher scolding a naughty pupil for having the nerve to call at that late hour. I was stunned. Nine!!! 9 !!!! Who the f.... eats dinner and finishes dinner before nine? Are you kidding me. I looked it up on their website and found out that dinner is served between 5 PM and 9 PM. OMG! If you would serve breakfast would it be between 4 AM and 7 AM? I have to say that it was a hot July night, It was still daylight outside and the heat was just starting to cool down. The streets were full of people out for a walk. So I don't think that I was the crazy one. I really wanted to try it out but now i know it's never going to happen.More

The whole experience was amazing. We chose a 4 destionations menu and we were impressed. The starter was on the house, a meatball with sauce, homemade bread and butter, presented really nice, so tasty. We chose saganaki shrimps, romanian risotto, tunisian duck, chinese pork and...two desserts from France (melba) and US (apple pie). At the end of the meal, we were also brought a mini dessert on the house. The service was great and they have a very nice garden where they grow vegetables. We will definitely come back, it was one of the best meals we had, in Romania or abroad.More

Price of €50-60 per person (either sharing wine or having 3 glasses for appetiser, first and second course each) may look high, but this is a Michelin star quality which you will never get for less anywhere.
