The food was wonderful, the atmosphere was small and cozy! The owners were amazing! You even get a shoulder massage at the end of dinner! A must try! A low carber tip: ask for a caesar salad instead of the other sides, with your mici...More

This place is near my friends house so I thought it would be fun to go since the reviews seem to be rather good. Came in on a Wednesday night, nobody was there except the owner and his wife. Sat down and ordered ice tea,...More

European Taste is a great little restaurant; it feels just like home. The Romanian couple who owns the restaurant do an outstanding job of making you feel welcome and comfortable. The food was divine and very reasonably priced. I had the large chicken shwarma; I...More

This restaurant is the creation of owner and chef Ligia. Along with her husband, the two of them manage all the things in the establishment. She does all the cooking while Adrian takes care of the guests. I hope you come and enjoy the home cooking and pleasant atmosphere that so many other people have enjoyed and raved about.
