Went here for an informal business dinner. The place is great,old building nicely renovated,great big summer garden and...that's it. Oh yeah, the food. The food is mediocre and extremely expensive. That and the fact that the menu is all over the place in terms of foods and cuisines.

Eating out with a goup is not always easy in Bucarest. This restaurant, located in a park area is one to recommend. Large card, reasonable to good food, and for Romania, good service.

I have been here a number of times before writing this review, both in small groups and at private parties. The house is very beautiful, well maintained and surrounded on two sides by the Kiseleff park. They have a private parking on one side, which I find extremely useful during the week days when it is practically impossible to park... More

I shouldn't say that since this is a quality restaurant in the upper price level. But since I had read some reviews in advance complaining about food and service I have to admit I was a bit sceptical. For our group of five, this was not the fact. We had support of a local lady in our group that helped... More

Nice building and interior décor. Expensive, but found the food not to be anything special. It was very cold, and the food went cold quickly.

The place looks classy and nice. The food is average and most of the dishes are over priced. I ordered Tiger Ships, I received normal pink shimp (frozen), also in the menu was stating that is coming with risotto I received only boiled rice. Also a lot of the dishes in the menu are not properly translated. There is BBQ... More

A very nice typical traditional Rumenian restaurant on the elegant side . It is an old late 19th or early 20th century building with a very nice garden which has been built since its construction as a fine restaurant . I'm not in the condition to judge how the food is strictly following the traditions but what I can tell... More

Firstly we weren't well recommended by the waiter about the menu and we did not make the right choices , eventually we followed his recommendations and weren't satisfied , yes the place is nice but too quiet although they play traditional music , we also found it was a bit expensive .

Description
In Bucharest's leafy north, among the embassies and mansions, this classy establishment occupies a fine 18th-century villa with a gorgeous garden terrace for summer dining (which is also heated in winter); this is a favored place for the old school air-kissing crowd, where foreigners hobnob with the rich while chef Doru Dobre cooks up a storm for his sophisticated clientele. Start with polenta topped with bacon and shaved cheese, topped with an egg and served with sour cream, or have the in-house version of sarmale, sour cabbage leaves stuffed with meat and served (of course) with polenta. The menu is not too complicated, with plenty to keep both unadventurous and keen-to-experiment taste buds happy; chicken filet is stuffed with Roquefort and finished off with bacon and Parmesan; braised ducking is served with sauerkraut, and grilled duck liver with cherry sauce. Fresh fish is available at the daily market price; their swordfish is gently fried in olive oil. Finish off with nougat glace with egg custard and maple syrup.
