Moldova – a landlocked country situated in Eastern Europe.

Due to its tumultuous history under different regimes, names and occupations, Moldova has a rich cultural tapestry, the cuisine being a main component of the transition. With influences from its neighbors: Romania and Ukraine, a little from Turkey and Bulgaria, some from Russia and even the Mediterranean countries, Moldovan cuisine offers a variety of tastes and flavors.

With spices, herbs and various types of produce and meats, our dishes combine these flavors to create real masterpieces, giving an incredible result for a well-balanced meal.

Embark with us on a journey to a new culinary experience.

    I really love this place BUT they have to improve on the food. It's just not good! I want it to be but it's so disappointing. Roast chicken dinner is pieces of chicken that's tasteless and looks like chicken nuggets. Comes with some kind of slaw that's mushy and watery. Polenta is oily and not seasoned. Does the hummus have mayo in it? Better chef? Better recipes?

    First time diner. Nice people, nice space. Great music on the speakers during the visit. Food was very good and satisfying. Service was pleasant and attentive. It will seem a touch slower than many other restaurants, but I actually enjoyed a leisurely dinner rather than made to feel rushed. It was a nice night out. I will be back.

    The food at Moldova is just like if not better than homemade which is what it is in truth. Their food is not mass produced by any means and is obviolusly the product of a labor of love, with each dish being hand crafted and authentic with unbelievably outstanding texture and flavor. One just can't get enough of it and then can't wait to go back for more. And don't by any mean skip dessert. Great selection of unusual wines.
