A place where you can taste the best dishes together with this jolly liquor people call beer. If you want to feast or rollick, Hanu' is the place to be! The place is big, 500 people can feast at once, the food is for all tastes and the cellar is always full. We have everything for everybody, all we need to know your wishes. Merry feasts!

“Disappointing experience”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Been here last week with a large group of business colleagues. We got a big table inside in a non smoking area. The service was really slow, it took a lot until they served the appetizers and until they served some beer and wine.
The food was cold, especially when talking about lamb, even the polenta next to it was cold. Well, instead, the room was hot, they had running just a simple split air conditioning type which was far away of making cool air, unacceptable for such a place.
The only nice thing there is the building itself, which is really impressive.

“A Pleasant Surprise”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

If you're in Bucharest and enjoy good beer, good food, and great atmosphere, you must go to Hanu' Berarilor. I was told we were going to a brewpub, so I wasn't expecting much. When we arrived, I couldn't believe this amazing, newly restored building. You really have to see this place. I had a smoke pork dish that was outstanding and their home beer is very good. Just be aware that all the side dishes are extra, not very expensive, but still extra.
