The food is pretty urban + some sea food. The atmosphere is very nice; chill or jazzy music. Nice Belgian beers. It is worth a try!

We had such a great meal at this restaurant. I would say that the menu contains a wide variety of special plates. We had a bean soup and an onion soup and they were soooooo delicious! 🤤 We also tried the fondue which was amazing,...and we finished with the plum dumplings and the coffee cake. The serving was very nice and welcoming! A big 10 for this place!More

A cozy restaurant, serving Belgian food and having a super friendly staff. The food was really good, but the desserts were the highlight! That Belgian chocolate in the chocolate cake with orange and the chocolate mousse in the crepes was fantastic! Will surely return!

I've visited Waterloo twice so far after it was reopened. They refurbished the place and it looks amazing, cosy and still with the touch of vintage Belgian restaurant (taverne). The people working there are very nice and friendly and make the customers feel at home....They also had a concert when I first went there, a band playing lovely background music. The food is delicious, very tasty ingredients and the drinks menu is very diverse - the rockstar is the Belgian beer of course, but they also have really good wines, various alcoholic beverages and even a good range of digestive drinks, which is not very common in Bucharest.More

When we arrived (Friday evening, around 8) the restaurant and the terrace were empty. We were a bit afraid but, for the sake of good old times (we visited Waterloo 15 years ago), we decided to give it a try. And the experience was very...pleasant. The waiter was very kind, polite and suggested the best options for us. The wine was good and not expensive at all. Food was excellent (maybe it was too much:). We ate muslims, duck and pancakes with cheese. The desert was excellent (waffles with chocolate and chocolate cake with oranges). The atmosphere was very cosy, with excellent background music. We will definitely come back!More

I wasn't expecting much but I was really, really happy with the food. I had a terrible cold which stopped me from being able to smell ingredients properly but everything I ate was very tasty. I tried the stuffed crepes, the mashed potatoes, beef in...gravy, dessert (chocolate cake), onion soup and I really wanted to eat more. Honest, comfort food that will definitely bring me back again.More

Belgian taverne with many dishes made with beer. Large assortment of belgian beers in the menu. Parking places are a bit hard to find. Onion cream soup very good. Pepper cream soup very good also. Carbonnade flamande, beef boiled in dark beer was ok. A...new taste for us. The dish didn't looked very good. Chicken with Duvel beer and mushrooms wasn't so good. They putted to much beer in it. Serving was very attentive, the owner served us. We will come back to try all you can eat mussels or ribs, 44 RON.More

Great Belgian food, great Belgian beer and great service, you can't really go wrong with this place. A tad spicier on the prices than your regular run of the mill spot, but with good reason, Waterloo just needs a bit of a promotional kick to...give it a bit of extra life. PS: they've got a terrace open in summer as well, with great conditions.More

I love this place... whenever I have a good event or a special ocasion I come here. They have this wonderfull atmosphere in summer on the terasse that I bike to their place and enjoy lovely raspberry beers. The food was always very good, they...have some stuff for vegetarians too but a lot of meat. I think the portions are ok, I just love the shrimp and nicoise salad, the crepes are very nice and the beers.. OMG so many, from light ones like my raspberry one to some that have around 11% . The waiters are nice and helpful...ok sometimes they are a bit too busy so service goes a bit slower.. The menus are in English and i think they had French too last time I checked . If you are more you can fondue and it is so much fun. The food is not cheap but not very expensive, however the beers are around 10-15 lei per bottle on average, Overall if you like good food and don't mind paying a little extra for the beers this is the perfect place. I bring all my foreign family here and they loved it and I never had a bad experience with them since 2010 when I discovered them.More

This might be a nice and cozy escape from the city's noise, especially during hot summer days. It offers both inside and outside (garden) seats, and a comfortable location not very far from the center of the town, and is not very crowded. The menu...presents tasty dishes most of them Belgian/European and a good selection of beers, some stronger than usual. It is not a cheap restaurant, prices are running from medium to high.More
