About
Located in the Old Town (but luckily away from the crowded streets), Abel's has recently opened and offers a wide selection of Romanian, Argentinian,Spanish, New Zealand and South-African wines and the list is growing. It's quite small and cozy and decorated with a familiar touch, which makes it the perfect setting for meaningful conversations around such "magic potions".

    Great Wine Bar in Old Town
    Visited twice in 2 days and had a great experience both times. Knowledgeable and friendly staff that really cares about wine and service. We travel the world and visit wine bars wherever we go and we love Abel’s! Coming back tomorrow for a formal tasting.
    Thanks a lot for your review!🙏🥂

    Excellent hidden gem!
    We went to Abel’s today and had a great experience. Staff were very knowledgable about the wines, particularly local wine. There is a good selection of Romanian wines available which are high quality. We also had a mixed platter of meats and cheese which was delicious. Total for 2 glasses of wine, mixed platter, one lemonade and sparkling water was 139lei (£24), which we felt was excellent value. The mixed platter was really large and filling. Highly recommended we will be returning!

    Very enjoyable wine Romanian wine tasting.
    Don't miss out on this hidden gem in the Old City of Bucharest. Dario put together a wine tasting that consisted of 5 different Romanian wines...all were amazing! We enjoyed the wines, the shop and Darios' knowledge of Romanian wines so much that we went back a second time on our trip!

Dorian is an amazing host!! He shared his knowledge in a way that made me feel comfortable because I do not know much about wine. Tasting the wine was a trip through România. Each wine tasted superb, with the final red absolutely amazing!! Abel’s is a relaxing place too. Thank you!!

Visited on a quiet Monday afternoon. The host was welcoming, despite us being the only people there. He was knowledgeable and informative. The wines were great (even the rosé!) and the charcuterie board was a nice added touch. In fact, we stayed on for another glass after.

Can recommend highly.

We wandered down here one evening during our week stay in Bucharest and ended up going back 2 more times. We tried several wines as well as the cheese platter and the mixed cheese and meat platter. Dario was very good about suggesting what might be a good choice of wine and encouraging us to try some different ones. A very relaxed spot away from the party streets but not too far! Definitely worth a visit or 2 or 3!

It was nice to get to taste and learn about the local wines, got to try a rose, two white and two red. The staff were very knowledgeable about the regions. Abels is easy to get to and is a lovely relaxing place
