Constanta Food Guide: 10 Must-Eat Restaurants & Street Food Stalls in Constanta

November 12, 2017 Roseanne Arnett

Mamaia is a popular beach resort on the coast of the Romanian Black Sea. The fine white sand beaches are unusual for this part of the world, so tourists flock here during the summer months for a tropical experience that’s close to home. Crush Beach is great for people-watching and water spots. At night, the area throbs with club goers and beautiful party people.

Marco Polo

Reviewed By NPConstanta - Constanta, Romania

We have a business meeting before yesterday and I have to mention that the services are very bad.
The food was good ( anyhow below expectation) but services need urgent improvement.
E.g. - we order beer and we have to wait more than 25 minutes to receive our order.

Pizzico Restaurant

Reviewed By MariusDrag - Budapest, Hungary

This restaurant was a pleasant surprise. All of the staff were totally professional, polite, nice: really good training or character behind (or both).
It is a place decorated with gusto, located in one of the oldest (if not the oldest) and most charming areas of the city of Constanta, otherwise a chintzy, or grim (depending whom you ask or where you go), city in the Romanian lands. The square where this resto sits, named after the Roman poet Ovid, is a growing and fast-changing area with access to cars increasingly limited and the pedestrian area expanding rapidly, making space to cute bistros and cafes. It is just a five-minute walk away from the Black Sea coast in an area the locals refer to as the Peninsula.
Not only the ambience and the staff were great, but also the food was very appetising. The pastas are beautifully cooked, with spice-balanced sauces. They come in normal portions, enough for one, and not huge as in many other restaurants serving Italian dishes where quantity matters more than quality. The menu is generous in diversity, offering, on top of the usual Italian fare, a lot of the local dishes, which, it is good know, most are meat-heavy.
We even had some music during our visit: and even that was not bad at all.
Overall, a great evening with good, balanced food and very congenial staff.

The service was quick , the food was great. I had mussels and my husband had some Greek speciality. The view is nice, over the sea. The prices are ok!

IRISH PUB

Reviewed By Anfrist - Bucharest

We had a full meal here, appetizers, main course, desert, drinks and coffee. The food looks good, was good, but not really impressive, especially since prices are relatively high and portions medium. Quality of the Italian platter meats not so high, while I could say that the cheesecake was delicious. The name is totally misleading and only a memory of a past when they actually had some Irish dishes. You can eat better in Constanta. The service is ok. Music is kind of non-interesting and it feels like the place where some of the overnight rich people come. Since it was winter, we could feel the lack of good isolation for the side door, plus the door not closing properly.

Restaurant Chevalet

Reviewed By rm2044 - England

After some less than favourable experiences in mamaia for food we finally came across Chevalet. The food was very good and fresh despite it being quiet (end of season). The fajitas were huge and easily filled us. Mamaia isn't yet used to non romanian tourists and this came across in most places we ate where we were largely ignored. Chevalet on the other hand went out of their way to look after us, even offering blankets as it was cooler than normal for mamaia... not England however but we appreciated the offer. If you are fed up of cold food with lacklustre service in the area then the trek out to this restaurant is well worth it

Very cosy, chic place. Great food, wonderful services. Sea food is cooked like heaven. Please add it!

Reviewed By O9149HKJohn_B - Leeds, United Kingdom

Yesterday I found this place and decided on an early dinner.
Another nicely set out restaurant I decided to eat in the conservatory, only down side with that as it's classed as outside and attracts the smokers. Pity
For starters I had some very nice fried calamari with a tasty seafood sauce.
Main course I chose slice fillet of beef served in a truffle sauce on a bed of spinach, very tasty and worth the money.
In addition a lovely bread roll!!!
Give it a try.

The restaurant looks good. The staff is careless, brought the food in half, and forgot an order. The food is medium. "Scaloppa al Vino Bianco" was very bad. The dessert was surprisingly good. Prices are very high compared to product quality. I will never come back

Manarola

Reviewed By editura - Bucharest, Romania

Excellent service, nice & friendly people working there, fine view: right in the marina. We were offered starters on the house. Tasty seafood, large portions. Live music at 9 pm but we were offered a song at 8, after telling that we have to leave for Bucharest. You'd better make a reservation in the weekend.
