Bucharest and its inhabitants are very proud of their history and their legacy. Today, everything that reminds us of the old Bucharest is protected, preserved and restored in order to recreate the atmosphere that made this city famous.
Opened in this location in 1899, Caru’ cu bere for over 100 years continued to satisfy their customers with great food, old music, flawless service and their secret, original beer recipe. Stained glass windows and beautiful paintings really impressed me and I really understood why Bucharest deserved the name of “Little Paris”.
If you visit Caru’ cu Bere, you will find out that the menu holds exquisite dishes that are not cheap, but they offer a great range of really affordable meals and even discounts for students so that everybody can experience the old Bucharest.
Don’t forget to greet “Moş Ghiță – the cellarman who worked here for many years. A statue of him holding a lamp still welcomes clients in the restaurant he loved so much.
Many Romanian artists like George Coşbuc and Ion Luca Caragiale loved Caru’ cu Bere for its elegance. Between 1940 and 1942 German officers appreciated this restaurant and became regular clients. I feel that today, it is our duty to visit, to promote and to enjoy this great spot.
