Since this  was my first time in Craiova, I wanted to try and visit a few restaurants, cafes etc.. unfortunately I didnt manage this time but I will again soon on my next visit.

One of the places I heard was good was Mythos, and today I visited to see what it was like.

Today was a very nice sunny day, so we sat outside to enjoy the weather.

Both outside and inside of the restaurant looked very nice, and spotlessly clean. The staff were all very pleasant, and very helpful and spoke English which helped me….but I did order a beer in Romanian so I did well today 🙂

The Food…

Pizza Carbonarra 22 LEI

So this sounded an interesting option, I like the pasta Carbonarra so I thought lets see what the pizza is like.

On arrival it looked OK, and smelled nice.

This was a big disappointment, there wasn’t much flavour from this. It was cooked fine, but it was lacking in flavour which made it very boring to eat.

Would I order this again? no..

I did try some of my girlfriends pizza, and this did have flavour again but not as much as I would have liked so I am glad I didn’t order that one.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 2.5
Presentation : 3

Overall

I was very disappointed with my pizza, so much so I don’t think I visit here again as it was just lacking in flavour.

I have never been to Maggie May’s, I have always passed it on the bus, walked passed it but never thought lets go in and see what its like.

I recently spotted an Itison for here, where I could get 2 burgers and 2 soft drinks for £9 how good is that! So I thought this is an offer to good not to purchase and try.

Maggie May’s has had a revamp so this was like a promo to get people to come in and see whats its like now and to try the food.

On entering I had a look about, for me it was a typical bar with a little modern twist to it. The place looked very clean, and the layout looked nice and spacious.

The eating area is at the far right back of the premises, so we were shown to the tables.

The Food :

The offer was for a burger and a drink, but I thought lets try a starter and see what the other food is like here.

Maggese Lava Dipping Pot £4.00
Cheesy dipping pot served with Tortilla chips

I took a look at the menu and it was between two dishes, but this one won.

On arrival this looked a good portion size for a starter, and I just dug in.

This was very nice, the chips were nice and crispy and the sauce was very good. The sauce had a little kick to it, which was perfect and overall a really good starter.

Whiskey-a-go-go £N/A (Normally £8.50)
Beef burger topped with haggis & fried onions with a whiskey infused peppercorn sauce

There was a lot of nice sounding burgers on the menu, so it was a hard choice to make but I opted for this one.

Presentation wise it was just ok, the burger though did look good and smelled good.

The burger taste was nice but just so so for me, I was expecting something a little more from this due to the haggis and the sauce but it was ok.

Would I have it again? hmmm maybe if I was back in, but if I do return I would try some of the other burgers on the menu.

Portion Size : 5
Value for Money : n/a
Flavour : 3.5
Presentation : 3.5

Overall :

Overall my first visit to Maggie Mays was an ok one, the inside I can’t really comment on the new look but it looked nice.

Food wise again it was ok, I really enjoyed my started and the burger was nice.

I would try another burger next time, and maybe another starter…then again I did enjoy the starter a lot so will see what happens on my next visit.

It had been a while since I had visited Barca, so today I visited and decided to try a few more dishes.

Just like the last time, we were greeted and shown to a table. This time round we were seated inside, which is a first for me as its always been outside.

The Food :

Pequeña Hamburguesa £6.25
Two beef sliders, toasted brioche bun, chilli jam, and Manchego Cheese

IMG_9935

When this arrived I thought this is going to be ok and not that filling, as they looked pretty small (to me that is). Both burgers combined would be roughly a normal burger size.

Oh My God! these were amazing!!! they were so good in flavour I ordered another one, and yes I did finish them.

If you like a tasty burger please do try these, you won’t be disappointed.

Gambas Rebozadas £6.95
Kind prawns in a crisp chilli and coriander batter. Lime mayonnaise dip.

I love king prawns so I was really looking forward to this dish.

For me these were nice, but nothing special. The flavours were nice, the chilli was there but just a small kick. If you don’t like chilli to be honest your safe with this, as the kick is nothing strong its just there and no more.

Overall :

Thats the good thing about being a blogger, I need to try different dishes plus its also good doing this as you get to find items you love, like or not a fan of by trying different things.

The atmosphere was actually nice inside, but personally I think its a little more relaxing outside.

Overall my choices were a mixed review, I really loved the sliders but the prawns for me were just ok.
