I spent a lovely evening in the garden with my boyfriend! The food was very good but the dessert was excellent. Best Pancakes with grated apple and orange sauce!!!

Our visit today at lunchtime was most enjoyable! Service was impeccable. Food (we had smoked salmon appetizer, chicken breast served with mashed potatoes and tarragon sauce, and coffee parfait for dessert) was well-prepared. Portion sizes were perfect and the entire experience was very pleasant. Just wish the weather had been warmer so the lovely garden could have hosted us.

Very nice place. Nice terrace. Food average. Service acceptable, nothing exceptional. You pay the place and that's all. I don't recommend. But the terrace is amazing.

Though located next to two very busy roads, the garden is beautiful. You would not expect something like that in the wider city center. But I am afraid this is the only remarkable thing. Food was just average, you can get similar food experience at much lower price elsewhere. And service is really poor. We were hunting waiters to get... More

Nice place, nice garden, nice house. But, unfortunately for a restaurant, horrible food. A total disappointment. Avoid.

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!

I know the place, i have been many times in the past. The garden is great but the waiting time was very very long. The waiter escused herself and brought us an extra 10 olives from the house!! The food was tasty but expensive(as expected) The inside of the place is also great and very clean. Great for foreign tourists... More

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.
