The restaurant is a hidden gem in Bucharest. We found it through TripAdvisor and it is amazing. It's located in old house, with a lot of pictures of romanian handball players and victories on the walls. We tried authentic romanian dishes and all were delicious....Local beer and tripe soup is a must.More

When visiting Bucharest for a few days before a Danube cruise, my friends and I decided we wanted lunch in a non-touristy, neighborhood restaurant that serves authentic Romanian food. We were very happy with we we found (through a TripAdvisor search) Bucarastul cel Dibaci ....It is on a narrow street not far from the tourist-saturated Old Town district. The menus offered English translations, but we heard no English spoken within blocks of the restaurant. The family and staff were friendly and could speak just enough English for us to order what we wanted and pay our bill. The patio seating is comfortable, with beautiful hanging baskets of flowers, and umbrellas to provide plenty of shade in a warm sunny day. The local house wines were quite good, especially for the price, as were the beers. The food was also very good, with the salads and vegetables being particularly fresh and flavorful. The pork had a little gristle and the chicken was a little over cooked and dry, but the flavors were great. If you want to get a feel for the “real” Bucharest and good food as the locals eat, Bucarastul cel Dibaci will be hard to beat.More

Found this restaurant while browsing Tripadvisor for local Romania 🇷🇴 food. Situated central in jewish quarter of Bucharest and tends to be crowded by tourists (for good reasons 😊). And … excellent choice, food, personal and locals with whom I engaged in very pleasant discussion...while enjoying delicious plates (see pictures). Thanks and hope to return again! 🙏😊💕More

not very far from the URINI square (city center) this restaurant offers a varied local cuisine. For Romanian cuisine let yourself be guided by the staff who are extraordinarily kind. The prices are very adordable and on sunny days until November you can enjoy a...beautiful terrace. This place, which has become our daily stronghold, does not tire us and yet we make long stays in Bucharest. All our sympathy to this equique who has been welcoming us for a long time. Do as we have a good time and enjoy yourself André and Alain from ParisMore
