I never tasted a better lime/mint sorbet in my life. We didn't eat any food here, but I was flabberghasted by that sorbet. I think they recently expanded into a room nextdoor, because the area to the far right of the main front door still needs some help to convince me that it's supposed to be a restaurant. The rest of the place was very fun to look at, and the owner (a guy from Ireland who speaks ZERO Romanian) was very friendly. I think eating outside along the street is where the ambience awaits, though. I could only give it an average rating since we only had a beer and a sorbet.

Having travelled from Budapest to Timisoara to Bucharest and been treated to very poor food and bad service, Malagamba was like a breath of fresh air to me and my foodie husband. They even use fresh pasta instead of the dried stuff that everyone else uses and the pepper steak was to die for. The lime and basil sorbetto for dessert was absolutely amazing.
