Eating is a must. Everyone eats – some people more, others less. Some people eat for pleasure, some for the experience, some for necessity. Or just to discover new cultures, customs, traditions.
Some people say there is a direct connection between metabolism and pleasure. Your state of mind is essential when eating. You could be eating your favourite dish, but if you are nervous, stressed or feeling miserable, the pleasure is not there.
The company of friends can help. So, after carefully choosing your entourage, you can start voting on where to eat when visiting Bucharest. Let’s say:
Taverna Racilor – for seafood lovers
A true culinary experience. Besides the delicious seafood, this is the only restaurant in Romania where live crustaceans are served for the customers to pick. Taverna Racilor is a concept born from a single desire to make people aware of this type of seafood and to show them how it is cooked.
The restaurant has a unique visual concept: It looks like a cosy little house radiating a warm, chic, elegant atmosphere. Perhaps it may seem a bit pretentious, but for a keen eye it really is just lovely.

Excalibur – unique medieval experience; the cutlery is optional
Are you looking for a place to eat where you can relax and enjoy yourself away from the false rules of etiquette? A special place, cut off from everyday reality, with savoury delicacies and a medieval scent that will make you want to feast with your hands because it is the only way you can really enjoy royal cuisine?
Excalibur Restaurant is the only place in Bucharest where succulent steaks, tasty pies and vintage wines are served as in the days of King Arthur: in generous portions by knights and ladies for whom honour and reputation go above all else.
The delicious food comes in portions for two, four or six people. The service is impeccable; cutlery is optional.
