    La Mama Acasa: Is your Ma Romanian?

    by Tom1971 Written Jan 27, 2004

    Good renditions of traditional Romanian dishes (sours soups, grilled and fried fish, grilled meats, stuffed cabbage leaves etc.) at good prices. Quick service.

    Favorite Dish: Ciorba taraneasca-peasent soup. V. nice with a bit of sour cream.

  • A basic list of places to go for good local food

    by tiganeasca Updated Nov 10, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is a good basic selection of restaurants listed on lichinga's Bucharest page. My personal favorites from his list are Bistro Ateneu (str. Episcopiei 3, reservations recommended, 313-4900) and La Taifas. Finally, although I don't think that the food is quite as good, you really must visit Caru cu bere for the splendid, spectacular interior.

    As good as his list is, I would like to add a few recommendations of my own:

    Hanul Maramures, str. General Berthelot 24 (set very far back from the street on the north side--I walked past it about five times without seeing it!), serving traditional food in a comfort-able setting at very reasonable prices

    Doina, Soseaua Kiseleff 8 (222-3179 and 222-6717), a pleasant drive and somewhat fancy. A wonderful outdoor terrace and garden and beautiful indoor setting for an excellent, if expen-sive, meal.

    Doi Cocosi, Soseaua Bucuresti-Targoviste 6 (667-1998 and 667-1080), a bit of a distance on the road to Targoviste, is also excellent. Don't let the touristy air throw you. The food is quite authentic. (And you will almost certainly enjoy the show!)

    Though some guidebooks recommend it, I didn't care for the Aquarium (str. Alecu Russo 4). It is a beautiful setting in an old villa, but too stuffy for me, too expensive, and a very limited menu. Food was fine but the experience has kept me away ever since. By the way, you can expect excellent traditional Romanian music at all of these places (Doi Cocosi even has a folk dance show).

    One last word of advice: new places are opening all the time and you ought to ask someone local for recommendations as well.

  • Golden Falcon Turkish Restaurant: Dig the decor

    by nugget Written May 25, 2003

    This has to be the best Turkish restaurant outside of Istanbul. The decor is authentic. The selection of food is brilliant, but there ISN'T a menu - staff bring samples of the dishes to your table and you make your selection. The coffee service at the end of the meal is a ceremony in itself.

    Favorite Dish: Kebabs as you have never eaten them before.

    This isn't my favourite...

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This isn't my favourite restaurant, and the food here isn't particularly good, but if you happen to be just passing through Bucharest and haven't much time, there is a 'Crama' at Gara de Nord (Bucharest's main train station) where you can try a limited range of Romanian dishes and beers at low prices in a small location styled as an old rural inn.

    Favorite Dish: Try 'Ciorba taraneasca' (peasant soup).

    Don't chose Romania for food,...

    by edelweiss Written Aug 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Don't chose Romania for food, anyway you can taste wonderful romanian dishes like famous onion and meat soup as starter, you will find the best one in BOEMA restaurant.
    BOEMA is a lovely place very rustic but not in the bad folk way you can find sometimes....just simple.
    Good romanian music.

    Favorite Dish: Go on with Sarmale (spicy meat and rice served in vine leaves ..great!) .
    You wont find a large choice of dessert in restaurant, Romanian people aren't used to it.
    Are you thirsty? Taste romanian wine , it's usually sweet but definitly good.
    Are you still thirsty? Have a glass of Tsuica, this should drive you home!!!!

    La belle Epoque: Belgian bar..

    by bonio Written Oct 20, 2010

    Well, a pub selling some Belgian beers, possibly the only kriek in Romania? A lunchtime stop here, a decent club sandwich for me and a large salad for herself, both enjoyed - as was the beer!

    Hilton: The Hilton - Cafe bar

    by timtregenza Written Jan 3, 2005

    The cafe bar of the Hilton is a place (famous in the past for the spying) that one can eat and drink - although more expensive than other places, it is not prohibitively so.
