Attention Destination Expert - Looking for a restaurant

Hi Guys! If there are any Bucharest destination experts on here - I am looking for a specific restaurant in Bucharest. I have been to it over a year ago and I'm looking to refer a friend there. It is somewhere in the area along Strada Lipscani, into a little passageway. it has a n outside dining area and the inside is beautiful with a very baroque/goth feel. There are melted candles everywhere and old books, dim lighting. The food was great, a little expensive and they had a great wine selection. Any ideas what the name is?? Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks in advance

Was the passageway literally off Lipscani street or just in the general area?

Speaking of restaurants, what is the best restaurant that serves meat kabab, humous, and freshly baked Turkish bread ?

Thank you

There's a Four Seasons location on Vasile Lascar street ( https://www.four-seasons.ro/en/contact ), about 15 minutes walk from your hotel. The others are in the northern part of the city, much further away.

In the Old Town you could try Saray (~10 minutes walk).

Did the passageway look like this: https://is.gd/wjMv0t ? Although on it there are mainly clubs rather than restaurants.

Hi alterme,

Thank you for your reply.

I don't think it was this one but I do know this passage - that pub even, I went in there to use the ladies!

Now that I'm looking at this map, I think the passage might have been parallel to Pasajul Victoria.

I could be wrong though. I remember I was looking for the umbrella street before we stumbled upon the restaurant in question, and then walked back along the main street, passed Pasajul Victoria and then walked towards the Pizza Hut on our right and onto the other side of town towards our accommodation.

You are extremely kind to help me figure this out! Thank you!!!

It might be something in the Macca-Vilacrosse passageway ( https://is.gd/nUwArn ). Do you remember if it was a circular alley with several hookah places ?
