Ivan Pescar & Scrumbia Bar (Kingfisher Ivan & Shad Bar)
I often hear about people telling that it is impossible to eat great fish in Bucharest. But I also often get asked if there is a place where one can eat delicious fish and sea food in Bucharest. The first place that comes to my mind is Ivan Pescar, providing the fish experience in a way one may have never experienced before. Indeed, this restaurant is not the traditional Mediterranean restaurant where you'll get your fish seasoned with olive oil and herbes de Provence. Ivan Pescar is all about the Danube Delta, the birthplace of Ivan Patzaichin, one of Romania's legends. Ivan Patzaichin won four Olympic medals and nine World Championship medals in canoeing. You understood correctly, Ivan Patzaichin is also the owner of Ivan Pescar, the spotlight for Danube Delta's cuisine in Bucharest (-but also in Tulcea), with Lipovean chefs in the kitchen. The fish menu is by far one of my favorites, and, as you know, fish goes always with wine... Honestly, I could spend quite a lot of time complimenting the wine list as well, but I'd rather let you explore it by yourself... Enjoy !
