La Mama's latest action "100ÎmpreunaLaMama" celebrates the centennial of Romania's unification in a red-yellow-blue manner, which is a great idea. Congrats! The food is what you expect of home-made dishes: decently priced and tasty. The only shortcoming: we ate ours before taking the selfies needed...More

If you don’t have a big budget and want to try the traditional food is a place to go. Recommend papansi

There are three locations for La Mama. The one we visited was near the Athenee Palace Hilton, just around the corner.

Description
"We started 13 years ago, on 27 February 1999, with an idea. We tried to keep this idea intact and even to improve it day by day. Because of you, our clients are most important to us, like I was the most important person for my mother when I came home for dinner. If we made it this far in 13 years, we owe this to our clients, that make us become better every day and we owe this to our 500 people team.I want to thank all my regular customers and to all those who have stood by us in these 13 years. I thank you because we exist.We owe this to you."Catalin Mahu - La mama
