Description: Mica Elvetie Restaurant can be described as a universe enriched continuously with ideas and tastes, flavors and passion for cooking. Chef Jakob Hausmann is the artist who puts together all the pieces of the dynamics of the restaurant. The new location in the historic center, officially opened on September 12, 2012, and here was implemented a new gastronomic concept oriented to young audiences with special menus at affordable prices. The restaurant offers services of lunch and candlelight dinner, corporate or anniversary parties and even gala events. For 19 years, Mica Elvetie Restaurant managed with its Swiss cuisine to position itself in the top 10 restaurants in Bucharest and to distinguish itself in the gastronomy with its particular dishes, like meat served on hot stone (concept brought by Chef Jakob Hausmann in Romania), various types of fondue, raclette and already famous - roesti garnish. Constantly, in all this time the menu was renewed by Chef Hausmann with exquisite dishes cooked in unique combinations, made with fresh, seasonal ingredients. Jakob Hausmann, chef and manager of Mica Elvetie Restaurant is the image of famous companies such as Selgros, Fuchs and Eisberg in Romania and culinary consultant for other locations. With an impressive history of 19 years and its specific professionalism Mica Elvetie Restaurant promises many culinary successes and guarantees the same high class standards.

It is a small restaurant but the atmosphere, the services and the food are very good. The only inconvenient is that it is a bit expensive but I think it worths the money.

This is the only place know in Bucharest where they serve beef on a hot brick and you cook it yourself. It is pretty expensive but the experience is worthwhile and besides, the taste of the beef accompanied by butter, sauce, salads, potatoes...is amazing.

I clearly recommend the restaurant and most appropriate is to pay them a visit if you really feel like celebrating something or you're just in love with beef...like I am ;)

Situated in a nice and quiet area, this restaurant offers you the perfect place for a meeting, without having the risk to be disturbed. The cook is swissand believe me, he knows how to cook ;). Even the prices are not low, and neither too high, you can give it a try ! I recommend you to ask for "beef roasted on stone"... An experience you won't forget too soon :)

The only reason why this restaurant is not in the top is that travelers are not stumbling upon this place - situated in a residential are, off the main street, it is very well worth looking for!

Garden terrace in the backyard with a very nice setting makes it perfect for a quiet or romantic dinner. The food is great and the charming chef who is talks to guests personally can accommodate special requests. The beef on stone plate came with a variety of sauces, and the strawberry-soaked tiramisu (instead of coffee-soaked which I don't like) seemed huge to me at first but I ate everything and was about to lick the plate...

A nice short walk from Pullman hotel along university grounds and along a quiet street with nice houses - probably the closest fine dining option. I'm definitely back there tomorrow!
