The Caru' cu Bere (aka Carul cu Bere; "the beer wagon") is a bar and restaurant on Stavropoleos Street in the Lipscani district of Bucharest, Romania, opened in 1879 and moved to the current location, a gothic revival building designed by Austrian architect Siegfrid Kofczinsky, in 1899. It is noted for its interior decoration, in art nouveau style. It is operated by Dragoș Petrescu's City Grill chain, and is classed as a historic monument, number B-II-m-B-19728.

    Great building, fantastically restored, great food and beer. Service is also good. Really would recommend it to everyone, both visitors and locals. Although some might consider it a noisy location, which I am generally not a fan of, in this particular case, they're doing it in a nice way. If you're planning to visit it in the evening, it's highly recommendable or almost mandatory to make a reservation in advance. Personal favorite regarding seating: on the edge of the balcony on top.

    Severely disappointed Excellent venue, apart from loud noise and over loud music. Prices too expensive for the quality of food and dreadful service. I ordered a starter and a main dish and both were served at same time after 1 hour waiting. The main course was cold. The waiter was rude. After complained he said it happens quite often so it’s not a problem! I would not recommend this place for any body, apart maybe for a quick drink before rush hours. Comparing to others restaurants in same area and suppose with same standards this is the worst choice. Management should consider a review of the stuff manners.

    The best place to eat in Bucharest if your looking for tradition and culture. Delicious dishes, delightful decorations, you feel like you are time travelling. They have balcony tables and live music during the week, we managed to listen to violinists during our dinner, very romantic and pleasant atmosphere. It doesn't compare to any other restaurant in the whole of Europe! Didn't want to leave!

    The place looks amazing! Totally recommend it for the interior design and delicious food, although I suggest you make a booking before hand otherwise you'll probably get a table downstairs. 4 stars only because we were placed downstairs when there were loads of places on the ground level + our waiter seem to be in a rush with everything from taking orders to cleaning our table before we finished and telling us we can only stay for maximum 2 hours.

    I never give 5 stars but this place deserves it. From the extensive range of local beers to the knowledge of the staff, one of the best craft beer bars I've been to. Excellent bar snacks and food to!
