We had a great Romanian meal at Vatra one evening during our stay in Bucharest. They had dancers performing traditional Romanian dances which my seven year old daughter loved. The food was great- I liked a lamb dish with polenta. The waiters had great recommendations.More

I travelled thru Romania and thought it a very romantic country. The people are happy and very welcoming. I think it is easy to find a romantic restaurant especially this one. 4 stars out of 5.

I would say medium to cheap, considering the range of Bucharest's restaurants. Don't expect KFC prices though.
