Description: -Temporarily Closed for Summer- The reason that Alioli exists is that a family of Romanians could not stay away from their native country. After spending eight years in Spain we have returned to Bucharest to prepare genuine valencian and andalusian dishes. Denia, the Spanish town hosting the most numerous festive days, is located two hours away by boat from Ibiza and is nestful of entertainment for thousands of tourists and used to be our school and playground. It is there where we learnt what the Spanish gastronomy is all about, what is the essence of the Spanish spirit and how to turn clients into friends. At Alioli one will always find plates full of genuine Spanish food and not only a presentation menu for tourists lost in the attractions of Bucharest. Our kitchen is managed by a Spanish chef who has been cooking only Spanish dishes for more than three decades. The ingredients he uses come directly from Spain, from reliable suplliers. The fact that among our clients there are numerous Spanish expats who dine here daily and that the Cervantes Institute has chosen us as permanent partner for their own events it is an honour and proof that our Spanish food is not only tasteful, but also genuine. We will be waiting for you at any time for a tasteful lunch or a special dinner accompanied by the best sangria in the city, by a remarcable paella or by any of the tens of other tasteful dishes which we prepare with love for Spain and love for the life.

“Delicious food, good quality service...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

Delicious food, good quality service, relaxed atmosphere. I visited this restaurant several times. Their new location has a big garden. We were impressed every time we've been with new dishes, fresh seafood (they are bringing from Spain special products that is not possible to find on the romanian market). The waiters are smiling always, serving with pleasure... I wish to find these kind of services in more places. Best option for any occasion!

“Bad but expensive food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

I had heard that they have a good Paella, so I took that. It was the worst I ever had, frozen seafood, over cooked rice and the price was big even for Spain. The next day I was sick, just to remind me the bad choice from the night before.
To top it all, at the exit I found that the brooch I had on the coat left at the guarded wardrobe near the reception was missing.

Thank you for taking the time to share your reviews with us. We are truly sorry you didn't enjoy in our restaurant. We can assure that there are other restaurants more expensive than Alioli and not same high quality products. Please, fell free to subscribe to our newsletter to be up to date with our weekly offers. We can assure you that all our dishes are made with the freshest ingredients, otherwise it's unacceptable in our high standards. As you said our Alioli cuisine is famous in town.

Regarding the brooch missing, please be noticed that every lost and found items are kept more then 90 days, if the item has a contact information, we try to notify the guest and return the item. As we see, you visited us in February 2014, and it's quite difficult to be able to investigate the issue.

“Back to Spain”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

Actually the name of their summer location is La Finca by Alioli and it is placed on Grigore Alexandrescu str., 77. Unfortunately, we had trust the TripAdvisor location and came to the old place which is renovating. Meanwhile the service is excellent, very good list of spanish wine and excellent paella which reminded us spanish vacation.

Dear Andrey,

We really appreciate your positive reviews regarding our restaurant. We have been making great efforts to exceed each guest's expectations.

We are sorry you came first to Alioli location from Popa Tatu Street which it was closed, as you know the add business location request is being reviewed by TripAdvisor Support staff and the process is taking a while. Now the issue has been solved, kindly find on TripAdvisor the new garden terrace location by searching "Restaurant La Finca by Alioli".

We try hard every day to earn reviews like this, and we will continue to do so.

Regards,
Bianca & Sorin Barbu

“great place,great food...quite expensive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

I had a great time with my wife and friends at Alioli summer location.
Great food,good service and delicious dessert.
A dinner for 4 costs a bit over 100 euro.
We only drink lemonade sice we all came by car.
I recommend this place for a nice evening outside in a romantic atmosphere.

Do make a reservation in order to be sure you find a table especially during the weekend

“Wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

Am decis sa luam pranzul intr-o sambata placuta de vara. De cand am intrat pe poarta ne-au intampinat zambete. Toti chelnarii zambeau si erau extrem de amabili. Un plus din start. Locatia e decorat cu mult gust, totul e "cald" si te face sa te simti ca acasa. Mancarea este extraordinar de buna, gatita din ingrediente de calitate. Preturile sun ok! Sangria este in deliciu! Ospatarita Adriana este o dulceata de fata. Comunicativa, stia orice despre preparatele pe care le ofereau, si n-avea privirea tipica ospatarului roman, adica de tamp!.
La plecare am stat de vorba cu patronul restaurantului. L-am felicitat pt ceea ce face. Dupa cateva cuvinte aveam impresia ca ne cunoastem de o viata. Aici te simti ca in familie! Mergeti, mancati, traiti, simtiti!! La Alioli se traieste fiecare senzatie pe care ti-o ofera preparatele teaditionale spaniole!
