If you want to try traditional Romanian cuisine in the center of Bucharest, in a nice old building, Caru Cu Bere is the place. I don’t know if the dishes have the best possible recipes for traditional Romanian cuisine, but that’s where all the tourists flock. The place has a very good location, the building is a cultural and historical landmark and it is worth paying attention to it from the outside and inside.
See Caru Cu Bere …
… A beautiful old building – it was built by a local well-known beer brewer, later a restaurant appeared, offering Romanian beer and cuisine;
… The murals, the spiral staircase to the second floor, the high ceiling;
… The menu is quite large and abounds mostly in traditional Romanian cuisine. It’s not worth going in here and eating a hamburger, as I noticed many tourists do. Here, it is better to drink some local beer, to eat mamaliga and other things. Look in the category Tastes.
Feel Caru Cu Bere …
… Although a lean organization has been created, upon entering you are seated at a specific table, a waiter comes over, you order, then others bring the meal, there is a long wait and it is quite difficult to order additional things because the waiters are quite busy. However, the restaurant is huge, with a high turnover of tables and it is normal to have a slight clumsiness.
Hear Caru Cu Bere …
… It’s quite noisy inside because of the large room and the lack of textiles to muffle the sound;
… First world hits were heard, but then, perhaps because it was Sunday, a pianist came who played an electronic piano. In the evening there is a traditional program with folk dances and songs.

Smell Caru Cu Bere …
… To be honest, right here the food was not abundant, not to say that it was completely devoid of spices, i.e. there were no memorable aromas.
Because the Bulgarian national cuisine has a lot of things that are the same here, our Bulgarian dishes have more colors, flavors and aromas, so that you will have a richer memory, and for that, maybe I had different expectations.
On the other hand, I realize that maybe they just don’t put spices in this place not in general in the Romanian meal.
Taste Caru Cu Bere …
What is worth trying from the local cuisine:
… Sarmi- cabbage and vine (sarmale)- it is cabbage or vine leaves stuffed with minced meat;
… Mixed grill in general – kebabs (mici), meatballs, sausages, steaks;
… I liked the mamaliga the most, which is polenta in Italian. It’s not fuzzy, it’s fluffy and well-flavored.
… For dessert try the Papanasi. It is a puff or donut dough, sprinkled with powdered sugar, poured with light cream and jam.
There are certainly other interesting places where you can try authentic Romanian cuisine, but I didn’t have much time to experiment and bet on it. If you know locals, ask them to recommend a less touristy place.
At Caru Cu Bere you can enjoy the beautiful building and it is right in the center, in a convenient location.
