The restaurant has a turbulent and interesting history behind it and it’s one of the oldest establishments of its kind in Bucharest. Its name comes from its previous owner, Manuc Bei, the man who made this establishment so popular. After his death, the Inn is greatly damaged during an earthquake and it takes several years before it is renovated. In 1861 it’s bought by Lambru Vasilescu who renovates and changes its name into Grand Hotel de la Dacie. All the important events of Bucharest were held here including balls and all kinds of parties. There was even a famous orchestra playing led by Austrian composer and violinist Ludovic Wiest.
The building has seen many historical moments including the singing of the Treaty of Bucharest in 1812, which actually took place inside the Inn.
The last renovation took place in 2009 and brought back its interesting historical appeal. People come here to have a glimpse of how life was in the 19th century. Whether you choose the high end restaurant or the small bistro, you will certainly have a wonderful time and enjoy the interesting atmosphere.
