Good food but service not so much - Edit

The food was really good, super healthy and well presented; the place is calm, charming on the fancy side. However, the service was disappointing; the waiter was rushing us even though we were finishing our meals about half an hour before the closing time. They stopped the music and the waiter was staring at us impatient. With the desserts he also brought the bill, that we haven't yet requested. We asked if the restaurant was closed to which he replied hesitating "yes"; we apologised and said that all information online mentioned 9 pm, and he responded with "8, 9"... we took out the card to pay and he said immediately "only cash". Turns out they had probably closed down the TPA for the day; he only allowed us to pay with card because we didn't have enough cash on us and would have to go outside to withdraw some.
Sadly, we wouldn't consider going back to this place despite the good and very healthy food. Perhaps it was just a bad day or bad waiter.
On the way out we checked that the door sign also said closing time at 9 pm... we left 15 minuted before.

Pros: healthy food, fancy environment, not expensive

Cons: bad service

Okay - Edit

We went there for lunch and I had fried polenta sticks with spinach which was sort of okay. My friend had the cabbage salad which was good average. So we were a bit disappointed, especially as some of the raw options were not available that day. Nevertheless the beetroot juice was amazing!
The location is down in the basement and we could not sit outside as there was only one waiter.

I also pointed out that honey is not vegan but the guy said it is organic honey....

Pros: Fresh juices

Cons: Interior

Amazing find - Edit

This place is a little gem. It is located on a side street 5 minutes walk from the Aviatorilor Metro station. It was pretty quiet when I went (Wednesday evening). The menu is vegan, except for honey which they use mainly in their smoothies, with a fair selection of raw dishes. I ordered the mushroom soup (waiter's recommendation) and fluffy vegan omelette with a goji juice (without honey). The soup was truly the best I have ever tasted, a creamy texture with a lovely rich mushroom flavour. The vegan omelette was made from tofu and is dish I often make at home. Barca's version was outstanding. The waiter recommended a dessert that I didn't catch the name of but was a basically a vegan mousse made from almonds with a delicious coconut sugar syrup - superb! Barca's menu is vast and I plan to work my way through it during my time in Bucharest.

I am forever grateful to Happy Cow for connecting me to places as special as Barca as I would never have found it otherwise.

Pros: Amazing menu, Convenient location, Very good value

Cons: No need to use honey!
