We were referred here by the concierge at our hotel, upon asking for a traditional restaurant. Reservations were easy, you eat in the cellar which is very dark down many stairs. The menu has enough on it for everyone. Our party ordered the cheese tray (huge amount of 1 type of cheese) and croquettes (best part of the meal), then cabbage rolls and lamb chops, with many different sides. Food was just OK, but the prices reasonable and service good. Local band that came by was friendly and engaging.

Arrived late back into Bucharest and acted on a recommendation to try this place. Disappointed they let our table go prematurely downstairs in the cellar, in the end quite happy at ground level. Promoting traditional Romanian dishes there was plenty of choice, i had lambs chops, with potatoes and fried peas which was excellent, washed down with a house red wine that was fine. Service was speedy, exactly what was wanted and food delivered very quickly after ordering. One aspect i really don't appreciate in Bucharest restaurants is that they employ a local band playing music around the table here, the music was not great and at the end hold there hands out begging, giving you really no choice but to dip in your wallet. If a restaurant wishes to provide music, then do so, don't expect your customers to empty their pockets, especially our case when it was not asked for.

Following a recommendation went here with two friends - food did not disappoint - charcuterie selection for starter with a large variety of different meats. For mains
We sampled the local cabbage parcels filled with different meats, as well as meatballs and pork fillet - the mash and sauces were delicious. Local red wine was excellent . Starters, mains and drinks for 3 came to 280 RON which we thought was very reasonable. There was also some live music which helped set the atmosphere .

The restaurant in the Bucharest Old Town. The food was very good, the internal design nice and interesting. Good service and attitude.
We spent there a very pleasant evening.
The only minus from our point of view - lack of accessibility for disabled, both in the restaurant entrance and to the bathroom.
