Food scene in Bucharest

Romanian Restaurant

“This is one of the oldest restaurant's in Bucharest. It was the favorite place where Ceausescu used to eat and have private meetings. It is something that you will not regret seeing it and it is located in the old city center. ”

Nightclub

“One of the best clubs in town, and a bit less mainstream for those looking for an alternative to the Old Town. Fills up quickly on the weekends, so get yourself there early. Tuesdays drinks are half price.”

Romanian Restaurant
“Usually a top touristic pick. Nice to look inside to see the architecture. Recommend only for the traditional dances during the evenings, inside the restaurant, upstairs. Not for food though, which is average and not exactly tastes as traditional food.”

“ La Mama is better if you like or want to try Romanian traditional food. Mostly, I like Ciorba (for the first dish) couple of flavors, Sarmale (for the second dish). Highly recommended to come with an empty stomach. 10% off with the voucher provided at check-in.”
