Terrace quite nice, food just average (our corba almost cold when served, mititei too salty), service rather poor and somehow dispising

For a single woman traveller it's not always easy to find restaurants where you feel comfortable and attended to. Don't know about others, but I hate it when I'm making reservation for myself and they ask 'Only one?' As if I'm not worthy the reservation....More

Yes, this is a great option for local food in a clean, though not so bohemian courtyard. Waiters treat you decently and seem to be dedicated to their job Try the local dishes they are wonderfully made

Had a late lunch of traditional grilled or roasted pork dishes with polenta. Reasonable portions, tasty and well presented. I would advice eating indoors as the terrace was quite smoke filled. Only downer was the disappointing Romanian red they recommended.More

This is a very good place to eat Romanian food. The staff is friendly and the service is fast. You should expect to pay a little more than in other restaurants but the food makes up for it.

I travelled thru Romania and thought it a very romantic country. The people are happy and very welcoming. I think it is easy to find a romantic restaurant especially this one. 4 stars out of 5.

I would say medium to cheap, considering the range of Bucharest's restaurants. Don't expect KFC prices though.
