"Saramura de peste" [Blackened Fish in Salt Sauce] - a classical Romanian dish, was no longer edible (fish not fresh), and no longer "saramura": a light and very salty, spicy sauce in which char-grilled fish is cooked in its scaly skin.

Very bad service. Sitting at the table you can you can hear the waiters use lewd language. With such a bad atmosphere you cannot enjoy anything! Average food. Not going back.

The restaurant looks cheap. The food is not even nearly good so the prices are not justified. The service is worse than the food.

this is a decent place , not very well known but worth a try, they want to give bio foods made has they should be made , the decor is poor and dated but over all it is a good trusting decision to go ONLY FOR LUNCH... Prices are fair,staff is ok.Worth a try!

Visited specifically for the chicken soup as they boast cooking it with chicken meat from the countryside farm. It was tasty and it did seem like grandma's soup,so I will return for the same. In the spring they have also a traditional Romanian spring soup ( made with garden orache), a delicious vegan soup that you don t find easily... More

One of the best restaurants for real classic Romanian cusine. My "go-to" place in Bucharest for the traditional vinete, ardei copti, mamaliga, mititei, sarmale.
