Famous restaurant for its interior Jul 22, 2015
N44°25.939' E26°5.920' Caru’ cu Bere means The Beer Cart in Romanian. This Bucharest’s oldest beer house from 1875 has a decidedly tourist-leaning atmosphere because it is often the first stop for tourist. Peasant-girl hostesses and traditional song-and-dance numbers draw in a big crowd, so make your reservations. The colourful belle-époque interior, stained-glass windows and high Gothic vaulted ceilings of this ornately decorated tavern impress, as does the classic Romanian food.

Because of our reservation in April 2015, we hostess escorted us to the best balcony table in the whole restaurant. During diner, we watched the traditional song-and-dance. We ordered mixed minced meat rolls in cabbage with polenta, sour cream and a chilli peppers on the side (sãrmãlute) and pan-fried Romanian carp with polenta and garlic sauce. The mixed minced meat rolls were well prepared but lacked distinct taste. The same was true for the carb. The expensive Crama Oprisor Drãgaica Rosie wine was well received. Excellent. As desserts, we ordered Romanian doughnuts with sweet cheese, sour cream and jam and pear poached in red wine with vanilla ice cream. This impressed us more.

The service was very good. Waiters were very experienced and spoke English. Although a tourist-leaning atmosphere, Caru’ cu bere is not a tourist trap. The interior is well worth a visit and the food is reasonably good.

One of the best places to eat in Bucharest Jan 24, 2013
After many attempts in finding a good place to eat in Bucharest I found this great place ''Caru' cu bere'' one of the oldest beerhouses in Bucharest, opened in this location for the first time in 1899, situated in the old town.

Great friendly atmosphere, tasty food and the best local beer.

The place is most of the time packed, guess that's the best proof, to be sure you'll find a table you can make a reservation online.

As appetizer I had eggplant salad with home made bread, I tried the chicken schnitzel with grilled veggies, for dessert I had cheesecake... a delight:)

nice food, though service could be better Jul 11, 2011
Great food at low price. However, at a certain moment they ran out of Kilkenny and they delivered another beer to the table instead, without asking. I said I would try it, but if i did not like it I would send it back. Did not like it so send it back. They replaced it with a Guiness. In the end they put the beer on the bill anyway. So that was less tip for them.

We started of with some mixed starters and romanian kebab-alike. After this we were wondering whether we still needed the main dish. Great taste. Try the aubergine salad. It is a great dish that goes nice with some bread and the meat starters.

The Caru cu bere is a very nice restaurant in Bucharest. Its located in what seems to be the old town of Bucharest. The interior is very old probably more than 150 years.

"Caru cu bere" has a nice atmosphere and is good place to have dinner/lunch or some beers.

They have traditional Romanian cuisine which is really tasty and the service is really good.

The beer which they are selling is self-made and tastes good, not like Austrian beer :-)

The prices are very reasonable for internationals:

A big beer (0,4 litres) is about 1,5 Euros

Main dishes starts from about 3 Euros

Soups are around 2 Euros

Definitely a good place to go!
Nice atmosphere
