The following is a review of some of the best romantic places for men to take a nice lady in Bucharest, Romania.

Infinitea

‘Infinitea’ is a wonderful Tea House which has a wonderful garden. Once you reach this place you might feel like dreaming. The décor is of good taste with classic and baroque accents.

‘Infinitea’ offers a wide range of teas with appetizing names. I must say that it is pretty complicated to make up your mind about what to order.

I highly recommend the cookies they have. Carefully chosen, these amplify the tea flavor.

Each teapot has 800 ml. so usually it is enough for two.

‘Infinitea’ is usually a quiet place which is located in one of the most expensive neighborhoods of Bucharest. No matter the season, Cotroceni neighborhood is a nice place for a walk; it is quiet and peaceful, it has many old houses which offer a nice view for the ones passionate about architecture.

Coming back to ‘Infinitea’, I truly recommend it for its cozy atmosphere, tea specialties and location; and not to forget, last summer, they have opened another level to the terrace, which is placed on a hill). Tea Prices: from 10 to 25 RON. Open hours: daily 12:00 – 23:00 Address: Str. Dr. Grigore Romniceanu nr.7 Web address: http://www.infinitea.ro/ Reservations at: 0040723175300 / infusion@infinitea.ro

Divan

This magical place is a representation of the Turkish culture and cuisine in Bucharest, a mix of dualities: classic and modern, conservative and bold, bohemian and tumultuous. It is leveled on two stories, the ground level consist of standard tables and chairs while the first level consist of divans. To the strong Oriental atmosphere add the Turkish costumes of the waiters. Even the bathroom has the same décor.
