Hanul Manuc, Bucharest
(3.9/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Have a drink in the courtyard of Hanul Manuc, often referred to as "the last caravansary of South Eastern Europe." A wealthy Armenian grain merchant, known under his Turkish name Manuc-bei, built the inn in 1808 as a commercial complex that included living quarters, offices, stores, and a pub. Its original structure, featuring arcaded open galleries with carved wooden pillars encircling the courtyard, remains the same with the addition of a ground floor cafe. The inn is a notable historical site as it was often a venue for important political meetings. At the end of the 19th century, one of its halls served as a theater.

  • Dinner on a Saturday night during a weekend in Bucharest. Very cute, decorated in a typical peasant. Not having booked we can't sit in the dining room, where waiters dressed in typical clothing entertained customers with small shows and folk dancing. We choose the antipasto misto della casa (a series of dishes of lamb and cheese Romanians), nothing memorable. As main course we split the signature dish of the House: a leg of lamb about 1 kg cooked at low temperature and glazed with a wine sauce. The latter was nothing short of exquisite: soft, juicy meat that melted in your mouth. Excellent dessert, fried graffettine and served with sour cherries in syrup and whipped cream. Account more than fair (the equivalent of about € 17 per person). I recommend it without a doubt!

  • A restored building, and a restaurant that looked a bit touristy. I dropped in for a quick glance, and didn't have the opportunity to look more deeply. I'd like to go back! 
  • a big historical location that's been recently restored. the food is ok but the prices are quite high compared to similar locations where you can eat more for less and good too; when it's very crowded...  more »

  • The courtyard is beautiful but the food quality is just normal. Vegetarian options are limited. Also local birds tend to swarm on unattended bread baskets leaving me to question the sanitation of the restaurant.
  • The courtyard and the atmosphere are good. The beer is not the cheapest and the food is rather average. During the summer days, there is also live music in the courtyard. Depending on what you are looking for, you may end up here or not. I'd say it's worth a visit.
  • The atmosphere is very nice with the old building courtyard seating and the live performance. The waitress was very friendly. With the food; I had one soup, 2 starters and a main; the soup and one starter were good, the other starter (some bone marrow plate) was atrocious and the main was decent.
  • Great ambience with a strong authentic feel to the Romanian culture food and habitat. Perfect venue for dinner with friends offering a scrumptous menu at incredible great value. To feel eat and drink Romanian style this restaurant is a must-go-to!
  • Awesome! Right in the center of Bucharest, but completely isolated from the noise, the heat and the crowd - for more than 200 years. The food is very good, with impeccable service, accompanied by quite good live Romanian Folk Music. But the greatest thing is the warm atmosphere that the restaurant offers, the drinks are the cherry on the cake (I highly recommend trying "Afinata"). If you're passing through the Old Town in Bucharest, it would be quite a pity not to try it out :)
