Excellent place.The atmosphere was wonderful. They also had music, in the beginning from speakers and later a live band performed which made the evening even better and gave another traditional essence apart from the food.The food was very nice, I tried the steak on the...grill(and added potatoes) and I would recommend it since it was very tasty. In general, we were very satisfied with the atmosphere, staff and the food.More

We had a fabulous time at this traditional Romanian restaurant last night. My husband, who is Romanian, wanted to take me there because it is located at the oldest inn in Romania 🇷🇴- so there is a lot of history! The restaurant is located in...a courtyard and the setting and ambiance are very charming. The restaurant gets very busy, so be sure and make reservations. The traditional Romanian 💃 dancing and singing made it worthwhile to go! Prices are reasonable, and food was good. Mariana, our server was efficient, but not very friendly. There was a young server, BALAMI, who brought us some items, who was quite friendly. Other than her, staff weren't very engaging ( including the hostess staff). This is a shame, because friendly staff would really add a lot to this already amazing place.More

The buildings and atmosphere are lovely here. Unfortunately we were placed near the kitchen or BBQ area so we had a lot of heat and smoke coming our way. Live music and dancing was nice. It gets very busy but we managed to get in....Food was ok. I had burger and would've liked it a little more well done so be sure to ask when you place your order.More

Wonderful experience, waitresses keen to guide choices to be able to sample dishes with big platters of food. This can be a risk for tourists but big parties of locals also present and all clearly enjoying the food. Lots trestle tables in an old courtyard,...definitely worth a visit. Lamb , steak, sausages all superb - the flaming leg of lamb is a great signature dish.More

It was my first dinner at Bucharest! And what a great way to start! Great food, an enthusiastic and friendly environment. Recommended it and wouldn't mind to go there again. Great prices for the quality of food and service. The restaurant is quite big, although...I recommend a previous call or email for reservation and be careful at the end with the tip so that they do not exaggerate. Typically it should be around 10%, which is quite something if you are with with a group f some people.More

My wife and I eat here one Saturday evening on a recent Vito the city. I had reserved a table online, which I would recommend doing. It was a lovely experience from the start. Greeted by a friendly member of staff and shown to our...table. It was a lovely warm evening, making dining outside very enjoyable. We were then greeted by our waiter and directed us to the online menu, which was fairly easy to use, even for me. The meal itself was excellent, a shared starter of lamb in a flat bread with a nice fiery relish dip at the side. For main course we both ordered different lamb/mutton dishes which were excellent. The whole ambiance was lovely, a busy outdoor restaurant on a warm summer evening,rounded off with a traditional music/dance show. I would definitely return when next in Bucharest.More

Classy establishment and warm atmosphere. Very good selection of local delicacies, including an interesting choice sharing meat/cheese platters. Food was very tasty, and the palinka great, although quiet pricey overall, for local standards.

Menu is super big, with many choices for meat eaters. As a vegetarian it's a bit harder, but the veggie burger is just amazing! All the food we order came pretty fast, the service is polite and quick to help. The food was delicious and...decent price. The terrace is lovely. I would definitely come again!More

The food was very good, the atmosphere pleasant, but you have to be aware of the pickpockets. Someone stole our money from the jacket. This was very unpleasant and disappointing.

I enjoyed an amazing evening, full of music, great company and stunning cuisine. The restaurant is beautiful and the food delicious. We shared 6 different meat dishes, which were all flavoursome and hot. The server was extremely attentive, always on hand to full glasses or...take away empty plates. This was genuinely the best food I've had in Romania 🇷🇴. Definitely worth a visit ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️More

Waitresses not friendly at all. Music awfully loud (probably to ensure faster tournover between clients). The "house wine" was just vinegar. The food was fine but the bill was too high for the service received.

This restaurant was a few minutes walk from our hotel so we enjoyed a beer in the open air courtyard as the weather was warm and sunny. Having seen the food on surrounding tables we decided to eat in the restaurant that night (Friday). Food...was fabulous and very reasonably priced. There was live music as well as some folk dancers - all of which added to our experience. Staff helpful with regards to choosing dishes and local wine. We would definitely recommend you try here.More

I paid with credit card, it was fine. Most restaurants in Romania either take one or the other. Do not try and split the bill. You either pay with cash only or with card only.

Hello, Sorry for the late answer. In Romania is forbidden to smoke in closed spaces, like restaurants and bars. So all restaurants are non-smoking areas.
