Description: Energiea, establishment of information and urban experiment, is equally a pub and an urban hub, a place that combines the ease and relaxation of having a conversation over a glass with the exuberant energy of artistic and cultural events and a cuisine based on the principles of healthy gastronomy: homemade dishes cooked without using any artificial additives and/or flavor enhancers, in a deconstructed decor with a strong personality. In the purest experimentalist Grolsch spirit, Energiea provokes and invites you to play, every day and every night of every weekend. Energiea does not take reservations. Energiea seats parties exclusively on a first come, first served basis. We encourage unplanned get-togethers and walk-ins are always welcome.

I have discovered it last April and spent significant time there ever since. There's a good vibe about the place. Good location, excellent food, nice staff and the best smoothies. Made some significant memories there, been there with my closest friends.

This is one of the most coolest pubs in Bucharest, without being pretentious and sophisticated, offering very good music, very appealing food and an innovative design. A very inspiring pub, close enough to the old town vibe but located on a quiet street nearby. They are famous for the innovative menu. It is also a concerts pub, so do watch for their program. Perfect for a celebration with friends. We keep coming back here, we are drawn by the youthful atmosphere and frenzy inside !

One of the best places in the city situated near Old City, in a quiet area. Food is good: ribs, frech fries, hamburger or salads. Super smooties if like such combinations, decent wine selection and nice cockail list :) Staff is always friendly. During week-end nights you must have a reservation because is very busy with very nice people. Exelent athmosphere all day long with a plus for sunny afternoons :) on the terrace

I'm a bit surprised by all of the highly positive reviews. Briefly, the food was good, but the service was HORRIBLE.

I went there tonight as part of a work team dinner. We were initially seated in the small lounge area located at one end of the floor, in a room that was open but somewhat separated from the rest of the pub. I guess they forgot they had put us there, because we had to go looking for service after 20 minutes of waiting. Someone finally came after 10 more minutes. We placed both our drink and food orders at the same time (because who knows how long it would have taken them to do separately), and then moved to the outside patio in the hopes that the service the rest of the evening would be better in a crowded area of the restaurant.

No such luck. The food took long to arrive, no one asked if we wanted refills on our drinks, and then it was still another half hour after they'd cleared the table before we got our bill. As one person in our party said, "The only thing they did quickly was bring us the change."

I will say that we enjoyed the food when it finally came. I might be willing to do take-out from this place, but I would not go back to eat or bring my friends there due to the awfully slow service.
