Listening 3-4h Latino music only is not what this place used to be: a cool bar. Hopefully this experience will not repeat, otherwise will not remain a cool and iconic bar in Bucharest.

I visited Bucharest last week and an american friend took me here for his birthday dinner, claiming it’s his favorite place in Bucharest for burgers. The burgers were super tasty, the cocktails delicious and the atmosphere was great. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and...I will go back to eat there. There were a lot of other yummy dishes on the menu.More

The owners are full of hate towards their customers, hating ppl in general. The food was under mediocre.

When I went to the bar in 23rd January 2021, the personal started to observe me and in a rude way one of the waiters told that all places were reserved, but there were at least 4 tables "free" with no indication that they were...reserved. Very unpolite service of a potential client, I will never go back there anymore as they were very unpolite.More

Place has a good vibe, out of the busy “fussy” city center, food was good and service very good. The clientele is a mix of Romanian and expat, need to book in advance for busy evenings.

I was that unfortunate person to get an unwashed salad. You’d think someone exagerates when saying that “i got a mouthful of mud”, but I literary got a mouthful of mud that was hidden in the salad. When called and showed the thing i got...out of my mouth, the weighter was indeed speechless, deleted it off our bill, and apologized. So check your food before you eat here. It wasn’t my first time here. Would be unfair to say that it was bad all the times, but this time was the last one for me.More

A place with a great atmosphere, staff and wonderful drinks. Also a good place to eat some fresh and tasty entrees. Although they do not have many dishes, overall it was a pleasant experience.

I always choose this place when we have colleagues visiting. Great drinks variety and finger-food. Very lively place and good people. Chiken quesadilia is something to try if you want to grab something to eat.

Great cocktails! This is the kind of place where you go for the drinks and not for the food. A great selection of every kind of popular and less popular types of alcohol awaits you at Salon Golescu!

This is a nice bar, quite smart and formal. A good range of wines and cocktails. However, the service isn't great. When we arrived the bar was very quiet. We were just two people and sat at a table for four. As it's cold in...December we had big coats and bags with us which we put on the two chairs next to us. Staff came over and asked us to move the bags to free up the chairs for other customers. We counted over 40 spare chairs in the bar at that point, so seemed a bit strange to need to free up the chairs. The staff offered to put our coats in the cloakroom which was handy. However, it was strange that they didn't ask the people sat behind us, with bags and coats on spare chairs, to do the same. Smarter and more stylish than places in the old town. More expensive than other bars we visited.More

Tasty food and very good cocktails, but at a price above average. The interior is design is very classy, with a touch of extravagance. The music is a bit too loud to have a conversation. They also have a few tables outside. Good service overall.

Went there last Saturday with few friends to have a drink before heading to another restaurant for dinner. The place was recommended to me by a friend. Good location and a very cosy place, nicely decorated. As we were having diner somewhere else, we did...not check the food options, but the drinks menu is impressive with a large selection of cocktails. I am a fan of gin & tonic and Moscow mule, both were perfectly prepared, a real pleasure. My friends tried Whisky Sour, Singapore sling and Aviation, all were delighted by their choice. Service was ok, nothing to complain about. i will for sure visit this place again (and again), next time i will try the food as well, review on TA are encouraging.More
