We enjoyed a great night out at the Excalibur restaurant- food was excellent and beer and cocktails very reasonably priced. Luckily the waiter explained how big the dishes were before we ordered. Would highly recommend when in Bucharest

This restaurant is quite good and welcomes you into a world of medieval dancing and food (no forks for the main courses...). Large portions, tasty dishes, polite and helpful waiters. Will be back, for sure.

This restaurant drives you in history. Nice atmosphere, nice service, nice tables... The food is medium in terms of variety and taste. This is an alternative place to have dinner.
