Discover the restaurant
The Bistro Ateneu creates an alchemy of French and Romanian cultures. Chefs Sorin Miftode and Sébastien Gravé have combined their individual talents inside a 19th-century villa in the centre of Bucharest. With woodwork and paintings on the walls, chandeliers and parquet floors, and even a grand piano, the ambience is undeniably that of Central Europe. On the plates, you will find a modern cuisine featuring the finest ingredients from France and Romania. Breton lobster and Bresse chicken are judiciously paired with truffles from Transylvania or delicious Mangalitsa pork. Enjoy tasting such dishes as the slow-cooked lamb shoulder with smoked eggplant purée and a “coco” bean hot salad, accompanied by a list of the best wines from Romania and France.
