Rather overpriced. The ceviche was fine, although a bit lacking in the actual ceviche (see photo). If you're here for some other purpose than great food, it's acceptable. For example, if you need to hold a party somewhere, this is good for that.

The food is less than mediocre, the waiters are rude and with comunist attitude. The only nice thing at this restaurant is the garden. You have 1000 other best good choices in Bucharest so AVOID this old style with low quality food restaurant.

The grounds are incredible, its like eating in a picteruesque park, so from this standpoint it is amazing. I was quite disappointed with the food and the service though, the food was quite salty and definitely below what I would have expected. Service was a...mixed bag, most of the staff were not very friendly, although my waitress was nice. The Papanasi for dessert was excellent so it was a saving grace compared to the rest of the food, but maybe I ordered wrong going with more traditional romanian, not sure. It is also very expensive too.More

We went for a family anniversary and we had a great surprise. The table was central in the garden, the service was fast and all right and the food was very tasty and with big portions. The garden and the faountain are the central items....We recommend it for a night in Bucharest.More

We spent a very pleasant evening in this place. The restaurant is not sophisticated, but the food is very tasty and the location is extraordinarily beautiful and well located. Unfortunately the waitress who served us did not have the best day, being tired, bored and...uninspired. I will definitely be back. I recommend this restaurantMore

I visited the restaurant after a break of more than two years. Being accommodated nearby after a busy day I decided to have dinner there. I was greeted by a very nice waiter but who in the end totally disappointed me. I ordered a soup...recommended by him and for main course i asked what he recommended, his answer being grilled shrimp !!!! but they are not included in the menu !!!. I said ok, just be good.(WAS NOT FRESH). I usually don't check my bills, only when it seems exaggerated. The payment note was 338 RON (for one person), ok I told him to put 350 RON with a tip in total. He disappeared and after a while he returned with a separate note of 50 Ron(1 EXTRA FISH) plus 338 Ron. This was the point when I got angry. I wrote this review because I felt robbed. I looked for the restaurant manager to talk to him but without success.More

Returning customer inspired by the place, historic and well manicured. The garden is awesome and the gardener is doing an amazing job. As well as staff, both kitchen and service. Nice setting, nice company, nice food, nice service. Good wine menu and great menu. The...Romanian cuisine is well cooked and intelligently downfatted if I may say so. The spinach stew with polenta was amazing. Really surprised. As well as the steaks, pasta and salads.More

We went there during the weekend, more exactly on a Sunday evening, 6 adults, 3 kids. Beside the fact that a part of the terrace was ocupied for an event (party-baptise) and the music was very very loud, we had an issue with the 2...owners. Our table was exactly near a table for 2 persons, where there were a women (at about 60 years) and a men (also maybe 60 years). Even from the begining they had an issue with our kids, telling us and them noty to play near them because they make noise. avfter 1 hour other 3 kids came near them and went playing near them and near some flower arrangements. the men got up, went to the kids and started to yell at the poor kids not to play there because they will ruin the flowers. We searched on the internet to see who the 2 people were and that is how we found out they were the owners. So... if you go there with your kids and have the bad luck to be next to the owners, ruuuuuun!!!!!More

We were two couples for a dinner. Our opinion was unanimous: dissapaointing. We've been 10 years ago and we expected to find the same high class restaurant. There is not a great variety of dishes and all we had small portions at high prices. One...of the dishes (duck breast) was almost cold. Only two choices of glass wine (it was impossible to find what kind). The dessert was excellent (pancakes and Doina's cheese dumpling). There were different groups for private celebrations, with their own music and grills like in a country celebration.More

Every time I come here it's like a celebration of everything beautiful and stylish. For the first time, we ate inside on the terrace, where i've enjoyed the natural light, the perfect service and the tradutional food that I am inlove. A place with history...and the waiters and the hostess are the best in town, in my opinion. Thank you, for this wonderful lunch!More

Well... What a disappointment on every aspect... Good point? The garden, and the interior decoration. Funny part? You wait for waiters forever and going to the bathroom you see them drinking at the bar... WtF ?!?! - at least 3 music sources with different songs...creating an overall annoying background noise - Basic cocktails only with a reduced choice. My Mai Tai was way too sweet, and lacking actual alcohol - starters... The beef tartare was bad, garlic chopped too big. No taste, no freshness. Ceviche was anything but a ceviche. Lack of taste again. - even bread was basic, so disappointing for such a place and garlic sauce very liquid (mixed with water) - main dishes : nothing extraordinary. There's much better all over Bucharest for cheaper price, bigger portions - wine came in late and waitress didn't know the wine options by the glassMore

I enter the restaurant only during walks in the park so I did not pay attention to the parking lots.
