Editor's review

This legendary Lipscani establishment is really nothing short of a theme restaurant, trapping tourists with its elegant facade and lavish interior since 1879. Admittedly, it's quite a relief to step out of the quagmire of construction of the historic district and into this gorgeous Romanian restaurant rife with balconies, chandeliers, stained glass, frescoes, skirted waitresses and traditional music. Unfortunately, the charm-oozing atmosphere earns higher marks than the food, which is unexceptional, uncreative and rather limited. Caru' Cu Bere (literally 'Cart with Beer') also brews their own beer, which is marked by being equally unremarkable, confirming the fact that one of the most pleasant and inviting spaces in the city is essentially going to waste.

just to add to the editor's review for caru' cu bere: - crowded (unexpectedly, given the above comments, but i guess they have the tourist market cornered) - high prices - couple of dancers acting-up with lots of fuss but poor quality - smoke out of control (even outside is bigtime-a-smokey) - slow to cook - did i mention expansive for the provided goods ? (poor price/quality ratio) i would recommend walking around if you have to check it out but almost any brewery around is better from food/beer quality perspective

Definitely the best place to eat in Bucharest. It is an amazing experience but consider booking a table in advance as it is a very crowded place.

I thought that it had the most amazing decor of anywhere I have ever been before and I'd like to think that I have done a bit of travelling over the years, good beers, great food, really good prices and the local traditional entertainment was delightful. I'd give it a 10/10 for value, ambience and service

A beautiful old room, a staff dancing dutifully to ear-splitting music, shouted conversation to cope, decent but not memorably good food, and you'd better not be in a hurry. For drinks, appetizers, entree and dessert, plan to spend the entire evening, a lot of it waiting for something to arrive at the table.

I enjoyed the food. As other reviewers have stated it is an impressive building.

Traipsed in and had a good brew, then shot off to the next stop. No idea about the food.

I always take visitors to Caru cu Bere, because it a great place to have a beer in a pleasant atmosphere and incredible interior. For great food, just go to Gara Lipscani...

very touristy, but very nice too and worth a visit. Prices are affordable and maybe not as high as you'd expect from a place with such an impressive ambiance. Food is typical Romanian and point taken that it is much better at many other places in the city
