The food was okish and the service okish. The location looks good, but that's all. The check also contained the tip - this is not usual in Romania, but maybe they are afraid they won't get a tip.

If you visit Bucharest, you have to go there for an atmosphere which can give you a hint about how people used to party in old Bucharest :), when the city was cosmopolite, with influences from Paris and also from Balkans. Even if you will find some kitsch elements in décor, the food is very good and very generously presented. Is not only the food, is the music, which can make you travel the time, from Sinatra to Romanian folk music. The Landlady is a show herself, she is inspecting every plate which is send to guests, also some foods are presented to your table with a show with music and fire. We recommend to go, for sure we will go again

If it wasn't an dinner for our foreign colleagues probably never get to this place. It is presented as being authentic, but the mixture of the antique furniture, decoration and cutlery with the patchwork of the covered interior garden it used to be, dishes with some Romanian traditional semblance and live gypsy music (they were great, btw) ant the omniscient attitude of the waiters creates an authentic kitsch. One specific would be enough, a fancy dining in antic atmosphere (for that you'd need a better chef), a traditional Romanian restaurant (forget the decorations and improve the menu) or just be a live music restaurant with continental dishes. Any of them but this tumultuous experience makes you look like a wannabe place or just a tourist trap.

Food is very average, not memorable, but service is very professional and corteous, entertainment is the highlight: live piano music and gypsy quartet superb.
