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

The building is old, has a great energy and atmosphere, the garden is very nice. Good food, but the prices are mid high.

I have been there twice. The first time with other two friends and the second time in a group of eight. On both occasions the food and service was perfect. On the second time they distributed us in two tables in order to keep the...social distance, but it was done in a way that we had a hell of a party. Unforgettable thanks also to the excellent service of Mariann, who was at all times very attentive to us. I recommend it 100%.More

This is one of the best restaurants where I've spent many beautiful memories. At every special event from the last couple of years me and my family come here to enjoy the best ambiance, music and first of all, the tasty food and beautiful platings....I've used to walk on the avenue and glance inside and I was even more fascinated when I've stepped inside. Best service with a menu which suprises me every time with a different design. The garden and the beautiful vintage, but renowed building transports me in a time with ladies and gentlemen from a century ago. I am grateful and thankful for all the beautiful moments. Thank you!More

Doina Restaurant is arranged in a large building, historical monument, inaugurated in 1892, with a beautiful architecture, located in a pleasant area of the city. The building is surrounded by a large and very beautiful, clean, well-kept garden. It is one of the oldest restaurants...in Bucharest. At lunch I was served kindly and promptly. I was satisfied with the food. I had a good idea to get in there. But I mention that food prices are not low at all; wines are also expensive. Do not rush to enter if you want to save money.More

Summer time splendid outdoors location, with great food and ambiance. Service was a bit slow and there were too many stink bugs on the property occasionally falling from the table umbrellas. We recommend it.More

The service was excellent, there were a lot of waiters bringing the order instantly. The restaurant is with ROmanian foods but is excellent.Location is very accesible. Prices are quite high being a fine dinning restaurant.

I was here as part of a tour party for a prosecco, coffe and bruschetta tasting. The outside is actually a large garden with several eating areas. Very luxurious! The service was excellent. We were only here for snacks but they were excellent too. Definitely...worth a visit for a full meal.More

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