Traditional Romanian Cuisine

When dining in Bucharest for the first time, you should definitely try some traditional Romanian Cuisine; when you come home, you’ll be left wanting more! Some of the more popular restaurants that many enjoy include La Mama, implying that the food is what a traditional Romanian mother may cook at home; Bistro Ateneu, conveniently located across the street from the Romanian Atheneum; and Locanta Jaristea, designed to look like an older Bucharest with it’s traditional woven pieces, dark wood furniture, and old black and white photos on the walls. Taste some mouth-watering ciorba de burta (tripe soup) at Vatra (located near the Cismigiu Gardens), or some Sarmale from Burebista. You can also enjoy traditional Romanian bakery items from Strada Lipscani for pastries and other delicious treats. You won’t be left disappointed!

During your stay, be sure to enjoy dining in Bucharest’s cafes while taking in the relaxed atmosphere or lively music. Try some of the outdoor cafes near Cismigiu Gardens to enjoy the views around you, or take advantage of the free Wi-Fi internet at Cafépedia where you’ll also find newspapers and books to enjoy. Relax at Café Boheme, or check out some art while enjoying your morning at Atelier café, a café/ gallery where you’ll find Romanian contemporary art.

Tip: Outdoor cafes in Cismigiu Park are most enjoyable in the spring, but especially in the summer season when the lake is full. It’s a great place to just sit, relax and people watch with a beer or coffee.
