This is one of the nicest " green oasis" of Bucharest city, just perfect to escape in a hot day for a nice lunch. I had a business lunch this August and the ambiance was very nice, the food was very tasty , the service was ok although it can be much better. The restaurant has a great green garden,... More

I had a business dinner in this location and nothing was awesome or memorable. The dishes are pretty good but I had higher expectations. Waiting time is a bit too long, the waiters are not paying attention to customers. Prices are too high for the service quality received. I think I'll visit the local after they will hire some new...

Lovely garden, great position, famous & historical place. But: overrated, expensive, low quality food experience. Why to go? Just for the place, the food it is not the case. Overall: such a pitty... Advice: don't eat!

The food was tasty but expensive(as expected) The inside of the place is also great and very clean. Great for foreign tourists... More

It's a pity that one of the most beautiful and historical summer gardens "Berăria de la Șosea" - became such an exclusive/ expensive place to have dinner or even lunch. Situated in the posh area, just around the corner of Kiseleff, Casa Doina it's an amazing showcase of neo-romanian style, designed by the great architect Ion Mincu, at the end... More

Great garden to sit in, beautiful scene! Fine dining restaurant, service exceptional, high end!! Food was mostly great, i would recommend the Ikra, Eggplants, Cheese, Mich, Mamaliga. Not so much on the Sermale (my mom makes them better) or the Mamaliga with ham. I have eaten in several Romanian restaurants- this one is the best.

Casa Doina is an excellent traditional romanian restaurant,located in the heart of Bucharest. The building itself is amazing and the terrace is a great place to spend time with friends in a hot summer night. The food and service are great,although a bit pricey,but high quality has it's cost. You won't find too many parking spaces around the restaurant,so make... More

Description
In Bucharest's leafy north, among the embassies and mansions, this classy establishment occupies a fine 18th-century villa with a gorgeous garden terrace for summer dining (which is also heated in winter); this is a favored place for the old school air-kissing crowd, where foreigners hobnob with the rich while chef Doru Dobre cooks up a storm for his sophisticated clientele. Start with polenta topped with bacon and shaved cheese, topped with an egg and served with sour cream, or have the in-house version of sarmale, sour cabbage leaves stuffed with meat and served (of course) with polenta. The menu is not too complicated, with plenty to keep both unadventurous and keen-to-experiment taste buds happy; chicken filet is stuffed with Roquefort and finished off with bacon and Parmesan; braised ducking is served with sauerkraut, and grilled duck liver with cherry sauce. Fresh fish is available at the daily market price; their swordfish is gently fried in olive oil. Finish off with nougat glace with egg custard and maple syrup.
