“Great experience !
Extremely friendly, flexible and welcoming staff, even with difficult, demanding, on a hurry guests like us.
They accommodated all our requests, always with sincere smiles.
The entire menu was absolutely delicious, fresh and served exactly as it should be.
Food quality fully justifies the price.
I especially loved the Crispy Turkey Schnitzel.
Also very prompt service.
The restaurant is decorated with very good taste, stylish but not opulent.
It preserves the atmosphere from the times when Queen Mary used to have tea here.
This is definitely a place that worth to come back.”

This traditional Romanian restaurant really is a hidden gem that never disappointed us.
The staff is incredibly welcoming even with guests in a hurry.
They show an impressive promptitude.
The atmosphere of the restaurant differentiate it from the rest.
Every evening there is a folk show , a little loud if you like to speak during dinner.
In the summer you can enjoy the beautiful relaxing terrace even if it is raining.

Plus the food is shockingly affordably priced considering the ingredients’ quality and tastiness.
Chicken turreted with broccoli saute and Bear meat with honey mushrooms are the most mouth-watering dishes we served there.

The Artist Restaurant

“Due to unexpected events we had to change the booking, then delay the visit.
The staff was extremely professional and bore with us.
When we finally reached there we had the pleasure to rediscover the same great cuisine – surprisingly presented – in an old beautifully restored mansion on Victory Avenue.
Not for nothing some say this is one of the 2 restaurants in Romania which are the closest to Michelin star restaurants !”

Blue Acqua Restaurant Mamaia Siutghiol Lake

They serve the best Paella Marisco with seafruits !

Fabaria Restaurant Mamaia

Very good tasty dishes and friendly professional stuff who knows how to create a relaxing atmosphere even under pressure.
We went 4 times there (lunches and dinners).
Late in the evening, when the restaurant was full, the only inconvenient was that dish delivery took almost 1 hour.
The waiters were attentive and prompt every time only that the kitchen was overwhelmed.
Definitely recommended even on rush hours if you are not hungry and love to hear the waves and soft relaxing music in the background.

“This is the best restaurant in the area.
It is the second time we reach here.

And we are extremely delighted to discover every time the same top–notch atmosphere, service and most important, cuisine.
Everything was irreproachable during each leisure lunch and dinner we had here.
This restaurant definitely deserves at least 1 Michelin star !”
