I cook. She takes the pictures. Everything goes under #mihaigateste on Instagram & on our dinner table where more than 2 chairs are usually taken. And although they’re not listed in the menu, interesting conversations are also included :) Along with great food, nice Romanian wine & good music. Something about me: I work in the Higher Education field & my fiancée is in Advertising. I started cooking for friends and it became a way of making new friends- a home-cooked meal usually does that.

What to expect at Mihai's place
We cannot get over how wonderful our evening was, spent with Mihai and Miruna in their gorgeous home. Not only was the traditional cuisine absolutely spectacular, but so was the conversation and ambience. It's hard to pick highlights as we enjoyed everything so much, it was clear how much love and care was put into this experience. Some lovely touches were the zacusca spread, made by Mihai's mother and the family made tuica (a Romanian aperitif). We chatted for hours, about all manner of things and felt like we gained a better insight into true Romanian life than any tour could have given us. It was also wonderful to be able to share our own stories about Australia with Mihai and Miruna too. The whole experience was so comfortable, it felt like an evening spent with old friends. I would recommend this dining experience again and again. A traditional, hearty home cooked meal, wonderful wine and brilliant company and for the cost?! Wow. We would choose this over a dinner in the Old Town restaurants any day. Thank you once again for your hospitality guys. We hope you enjoyed yourselves as much as we did!
I enjoyed an exceptional home cooked Romanian meal at Mihai and Miruna Marcu’s. Mihai is passionate about cooking and his passion shows in the flavor, quality and presentation of each course. Bonus points for the expertly paired wine with each course. Mihai and Miruna are the perfect hosts. By the end of the evening, it was as if we were life-long friends! Don’t miss this experience with Mihai and Miruna when you’re in Bucharest, Romania. #cozytraditionaldinnerindowntownbucharest
