Serves meat, vegan options available. A semi-upscale, healthier food restaurant in Bucharest's Old Town. The menu has a number of vegetarian and vegan items, and staff is able to answer questions about ingredients. The size of the dishes vary, so ask. The interior has some doors salvaged from abandoned buildings in the area. Open Mon-Sun 12:00pm-12:00am.

Amazing! - Edit

Aubergine is a beautiful restaurant in a great location in the old town. The service was great, the waiters are all really friendly. There is a whole section of vegan food on the menu. We ate here 3 times during our stay and everything we tried was delicious but the winning dish for me was the baba ganoush. It was busy every time we went so make a reservation if you can.

Pros: Separate vegan menu with lots of dishes to choose

Cons: No vegan desserts.

Lovely place - Edit

This Israeli restaurant is called Aubergine for a reason: they are really specialised on cooking aubergine-based dishes and they are delicious. Tried (on different occasions) the vegan aubergine dish with tahini sauce, the vegan shawarma, the nutmeg potatoes, the Champignons aglio olio and the sweet potato puree. All were very good. Their menu is displayed on a tablet and they have a separate vegan section.

Best dinner in Bucharest - Edit

I went to Aubergine with some friends whilst on holiday in Bucharest. We all shared and had a selection of starters and then a selection of main dishes. The service was excellent, friendly staff (who humoured me with my ordering in Romanian and always pulling out my phrase book), very good value for money - basically the cost was low and the quality was excellent. We ordered more than enough, nothing was left uneaten and yet none of us were bloats. Purely well fed and happy.

Also - it wasn't until the end of the night when we each frequented the bathroom that we realised how huge the restaurant was and how beautifully designed it is.

We had 2/5 meat eaters, 2/5 pescatarians and 1/5 vegans so finding a place to eat can be tricky but this place everyone enjoyed.

Pros: food, service, cost

Cons: iPad menus disconnected every so often (but easily

Good vegan food and good service - Edit

This is a handy option for vegans and vegetarians in the old town. The vegan menu on the iPads in the restaurant is a little more extensive than the paper menu but the descriptions of the ingredients are sparse. We had a lentil salad and falafel and they were both good. There's a nice selection of lemonades and the cocktails are quite reasonably priced, although the wine seems pricey.

Excellent - highly recommended - Edit

We were delighted to find this place, especially considering how few places offer vegan options in Romania. There is an entire section of the menu dedicated to vegan meals. The good is excellent and the staff is super friendly and all speak English. Highly recommended.

Pros: Many vegan options , High quality food

Cons: Salty

great vegan options!! - Edit

This restaurant knows how to cook their aubergine and they aren't quiet about it! Their vegan options are mainly with aubergine - range form salads to cooked whole aubergine and even in their dessert!! Amazing options of vegan food, definitely would recommend to anyone. Don't bother trying to find why other vegan places around this area.

Pros: options , the friendly staff , atmosphere

Cons: serves meat so cross contamination with vegan dish

Affordable vegan dinner - Edit

We ordered the stir fry and honey roasted veggies. It was really tasty although the veggies didn't seem to have any honey. Staff was also lovely. The place is very well located in the historic centre and the restaurant is spacious wit a chilled atmosphere.

In the middle of party central - Edit

Very friendly staff. Located in the total middle of big city party central. 8 mins f/ subway stop 'university' (subway line M2). Fresh, nice food. Electronic menus (!), all veg*n options quite clearly labelled. Restaurant surrounded by unreal architecture mix of communist and old-fashioned buildings, very loud bars, etc..

Pros: Freshly prepared food, in the middle of inner city university party area

Divine food - Edit

I visited Aubergine having read the excellent reviews of other Happy Cow members. It lived up to expectations. The aubergine (eggplant) dish I had was beautifully presented and delicious. The side salad had a very nice dressing of oil, sesame seeds and lemon juice (I think!). Aubergine is a lovely restaurant in a very nice part of the old town. Very easy to get to. I plan to work my way through their excellent menu during my stay here. I'd have given them 5 starts but the app only allows this for "Veg friendly" restaurants.

Pros: Delicious food, Excellent value, Beautiful location

Cons: None as yet!

just the best!!! - Edit

This place might not be vegan but wow! They have a vegan menu that is just incredible! I had every single meal in Bucharest at Aubergine! The good is just so tasty and price is very fair!
Try the vegan Aubergine - best recipe ever!
(Just can't give 5 stars because the app doesn't allow me but well deserve it!)

Amazing restaurant with so many eggplant dishes! I was in heaven - Edit

This restaurant was such an awesome find for my Omni boyfriend and I. Located right in the old town, They had tablet menus with an entire section for vegan friendly meals, which sorted the menu items suitable for vegans. Most dishes incorporate eggplant somehow, so it was literally a dream come true!

The salads are massive, so it was a perfect lunch place, although it seemed more tailored to dinner. The Lentil salad with pomegranates was fantastic, while my SO had a huge salad goat cheese, figs, and eggplant, and was plenty filling. We also had the eggplant tahini appetizer, which was yum yum yum!

I'd give this place 5 stars if I could. Would definitely recommend

Pros: Many vegan options , tablet menus, very techy , great food

Cons: a bit pricier, but worth it

nice atmosphere, okay food - Edit

Located near my hostel in the Old Town, I came across Aubergine and decided to try it out at lunch. The restaurant itself is beautiful inside, really nice atmosphere. The menu has a whole vegan section so I was excited about that, however I didn't think the dishes were that inspiring - I chose mushrooms in pesto cream and sweet potato mash. It was quite strange for me eating such a huge plate of only mushrooms as my main meal (with no complimentary bread basket or anything) as it simply didn't feel like a balanced meal and felt more like I was eating 2 sides. The mushrooms were tasty but I found it rather overpriced for what it was and although I felt full (it's such a big quantity of only mushrooms!!), I didn't feel satisfied after the meal.

Pros: beautiful interior, location, vegan section on menu

Cons: uninspiring dishes, dishes not served with anything on the side , bit expensive for what it is

not many vegan options - Edit

I was pleased to find this place but not too impressed with the limited vegan options. Only one vegan main (called vegan eggplant) and a few salads and sides. I had a lentil salad that was ok for a light lunch but not a proper meal. If you're not fussed you could put together some sides and salads to make a heartier meal (from memory the sides included falafel and another eggplant dish). All the pastas had egg in them according to the waiter.

Pros: friendly and knowledgeable staff, healthy

Cons: limited options

Beautiful and tasty food - Edit

The food here is really great, and they have a huge number of veggies options. Also, the staff is veg-literate, so they can help point you to which dishes are suitable for your diet.

We had the tri-color falafel, couscous salad, and vegan eggplants along with homemade bread. All of the dishes were delicious, and they were all beautifully presented as well. They had a nice variety of colors, flavors, and textures. The three colors of falafel were especially eye-catching, and the flavors of the eggplant dish are memorable as the eggplant was roasted to perfection, stuffed with an assortment of vegetables, and drizzled with tahini.

Overall, we had a fantastic meal here, and I would love to come back next time I am in Bucharest.

Pros: Beautiful colors, Fresh, delicious food, Good variety
