Traditional food in centre Bucharest
A traditional (and moderately tourist-oriented) restaurant, with music show and old-style wooden decoration. The available menu is not so large as it appears on the list: just try! The price is low (less than 10 Euro), and credit cards are accepted.
Strata Doamnei 9 - In face of the National Bank of Romania.
A former cinema, renovated with modern wooden decoration; the style is country-looking, with a traditiaonl Romanian music group playing (a bit too loud) and dancing on the scene. During summer, a nice terrace is available for dining outdoor. The price is low (aroun 8 Euro) and the menu is very well variated, with all traditional Romanian preparations available and well cooked. Credit cards are accepted.
Strata Dr. Clunet 15 - 15 minutes walking from the University, along
Bul. Mihai Kogainiceanu and Bul. Regina Elisabeta.
Very quiet and relaxing small restaurant with traditional dishes. Price is around 10 Euro and credit cards accepted.
Strata G. Clemenceau 6 - behind the Athenée Theatre
A couple of small halls, it may be crowded. The menu is made by traditional dishes and it is confortably written on green blackboards. The atmosphere is nice and warm, with relaxing colour decoration on the walls. Price is around 8 Euro, credit cards are not accepted.
Strata Episcopiei 3 - beside the Athenée Theatre
Strategically situated, close to the Theatre, the Hilton Hotel and not far from the Lido, the Intercontinental and the Bucuresti Hotel. This is the typical expatriate
gossip place, very warm and cosy place, with soft music and a clever mixture of Romanian dishes and International cuisine... if you like the environment, this is the place you would want to go.
Strata Hristo Botev 10 - close to Rossetti Square, not far from the National Theatre.
A Turkish restaurant, very classy, still relatively cheap and with an interesting menu, well prepared and carefully served. The price is around 15 Euro and credit cards are accepted.
All the restaurants I mentioned offer a Romanian menu, except for the Turkish
one. The main items of a Romanian menu will be described in my Romania
