I got to know Butuceni Restaurant 3 years ago and this November I came here for the third time. I loved the moldovan traditional food, the people and the village. It you want to eat something tasty you should come here.

We had a lovely lunch in this traditional setting and tried a number of local dishes including some tasty pies and mamalinga. All the staff were very friendly and the restaurant has a pretty garden and is part of an eco -tourist resort.

Nice looking interior, it's all... Very aggressive owner. She arrived at our table with aggressive body language and an attitude. We will never go back. Wouldn't recomend. Avoid.

Had lunch before visiting Old Orhei. Nice ambience with traditional rustic decor and dishes. But the size of servings is miserably small - compared to what one would get for that price in Chisinau. Indifferent Staff.
