    Pizza Jinx: Good Brick Oven Pizza

    by DSwede Updated Sep 26, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are lots of pizza joints in Ploiesti, but many of them are simply re-heating frozen pizzas. The pizza at Jinx is made from fresh ingredients in a brick oven right in front of you. They also have a reasonably priced wine list!

  • Regina Noptii (THe Queen of the Night): Not to miss Traditional Mixed Grill

    by victorash69 Written Sep 25, 2009

    The good think about the owner of this restaurant (which now has a brother across the street, a cellar and a hotel) is that he managed to maintained the high standard of the food and services quality ever since he opened. The food is fantastic, while I was living and working in Ploiesti, I never left the restaurant dissapointed of anything. Western European people may argue that the Romanian cousine has too much meat, which is quite fair to a certain point. But how the meat is prepared I think that it is making the difference. Not to mention the side dishes (vegetables, salads, home made pickles) which are always delicious. A good selection of Romanian wines (red and white) is also available. Not too sure about other countries wines, as always I was stuck with the Romanian ones.

    Favorite Dish: There are so many but I would recommend either the Masa Macelarului (a mixed grilled of a lot of meat - chicken, pork, sausages, liver, beef, etc.) or Tochitura Moldoveneasca (something like a Gulash but much better).

    Doroftei: Friendliest staff and best variety in town.

    by sanger Written Jul 9, 2007

    This place has a great second floor patio overlooking the main street. The scenerey from the patio is not that spectacular but the the atmosphere is the best in town. The staff are friendly and we quickly knew all of them by name. The menu is probably has the most variety in all of Ploiesti and there's not anything on the menu that I wouldn't recommend.

    The restaurant is owned by an ex-Olympic Boxer, Leonard Doroftei, who is a bit of a national celebrity and often frequents the place.

    Champions: Eat and drink with a view

    by DSwede Updated Jan 17, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Situated on the top roof of the old market, during the summer it give a great view point to watch the city traffic and people in the square below. But you have to get there early because its near to impossible to get a table on the edge after ~8:30pm.

    Walk around the corner of the Hale to the left. Look for a singular door that opens to a stair case, go up to the top. The door will typically have a chalkboard with a few menu items listed.

    Vineyard (or at least that's the translation): Good local cuisine

    by DSwede Written Jan 14, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Its simply a comfortable restaurant for local dishes. The food is good and reasonably priced. In the summer they have outdoor seating in a sheltered patio with grapevines growing on the walls. In the winter, you can seat inside in the quaint dining room.

    Viena Cafe: Don't miss traditional food!!

    by soricel Updated Mar 28, 2004

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Here are a lot of restaurants.But the best is Viena Cafe. Even though it sounds like being a coffee bar it is a very elegant restaurant. Anyway,you can serve anything you want from coffee,to delicious romanian food and finally desert. There are many other restaurants and if you want names I can tell you : London House,Pelican,Vita de Vie, Primavera...bla,bla,bla.All of them have good prices.

    Favorite Dish: I sugest you , no matter where you go , to try the romanian traditional food .If you go to London House try the potatoes with butter , cheese and milk cream.

  • Pelican Restaurant: Try the grilled meats

    by silentnights Written Mar 15, 2003

    The Pelican Restaurant is hidden off the main street. The food is delicious and the service and prices are reasonable. Most of the staff speak English and ambience is quiet and relaxing.

    Favorite Dish: My favorite dish at the Pelican is the typical grilled pork steak with rice and fried potatoes.
