Good place for business dinner with foreign guests. Nothing really special about it to keep you coming again and again, but for an intro to romanian dinner its above average. Definitely get some cold cuts appetizers.

The food is well made and very good. The wine is excellent; especially Tamaioasa Romaneasca that is having a special perfume. The service depends on the waiter .... some prices are high, some normal.

I went there last week on a business dinner. The location is in the old city center, not on the street you would expect, but yet very accessible by Google maps. The place is intimate and it is decorated in a traditional romanian style, but...More

This is a special restaurant. Location is great, near Old Town but this one IS NOT the usual tourist trap which is in great abundance in that neighborhood. They serve some unique Romanian (mostly traditional one) dishes, cooked very well and using excellent ingredients. One...More
