Sabroso Restaurant Mamaia


         Going through Mamaia resort, it is pretty difficult not to notice Sabroso Restaurant, located by Mamaia boulevard, close to Rex Hotel. We went there a while ago for drinks and ended up ordering something to eat, too, although we were not very hungry. A friend of mine had “tochitura” (a traditional Romanian dish), while I ordered a desert, papanasi. This is a locally popular desert, usually made out of two home-made cheese doughnuts with sour cream and jam on top. Instead, I received two regular doughnuts, probably purchased (they did not taste home-made at all),with some light sour cream (its consistency was very liquid) and jam.
The mashed fruit lemonade is good and refreshing and you can try it in many different flavours. We went for passion fruit and melon. The prices are affordable, especially compared to other restaurants in the area. Let me know if you tried it and what was your opinion!


Este destul de dificil sa treci pe langa restaurantul Sabroso din Mamaia fara sa il observi. Este pozitionat pe bulevardul Mamaia, aproape de hotelul Rex. Am mers acolo acum ceva timp cu intentia sa “stam la un suc”, insa am sfarsit prin a  comanda si ceva de mancare, desi nu ne era foarte foame. Un prieten de-al meu a comandat tochitura, iar eu am ales un desert: papanasi. Din pacate, in loc de papanasii traditionali din branza de vaca, am primit 2 gogosi obisnuite, probabil din comert, dupa gust, cu o smantana de consistenta foarte lichida si dulceata deasupra.
            Limonada de fructe este buna si racoritoare si o puteti savura diverse arome. Noi am ales fructul pasiunii si pepene galben. Preturile sunt medii, in special comparativ cu alte restaurante din zona. Sunt curioasa daca ati incercat acest restaurant si cum vi s-a parut.

Irish Pub Constanta

Last night I had dinner at one of the most popular restaurants in town, Irish Pub. I was expecting good food in out of the ordinary combinations and a classy atmosphere. The food was good, but not exceptional, and the servings were rather small, despite of the fact that the prices are pretty high. We had chicken breast with mushroom gravy and baked potatoes with bacon and pork loin with mushroom gravy and potatoes au gratin. The taste was not what we were expecting (especially for the pork loin and potatoes au gratin). Honestly, we left there thinking about grabbing some sandwiches from a local fast-food. The serving was good and the terrace looks classy and elegant, even though the furniture was changed into something more practical compared to previous years.
All in all, I must say that last night's dinner left me a little bit disappointed and I don't think I will be returning to Irish Pub anytime soon.
Aseara am cinat la unul dintre cele mai populare restaurante din oras, Irish Pub. Ma asteptam la mancare buna, in combinatii iesite din comun si o atmosfera eleganta. Mancarea a fost buna, insa nu exceptionala, iar portiile au fost relativ mici, desi preturile practicate sunt destul de mari. Am mancat piept de pui cu sos de ciuperci si cartofi copti in coaja cu bacon si muschi de porc cu sos de ciuperci si cartofi gratinati. Gustul nu a fost pe masura asteptarilor nostre (mai ales in cazul muschiului de porc si a cartofilor gratinati). Sincer, am plecat de acolo gandindu-ne sa cumparam niste sandwich-uri de la un fast-food local. Servirea a fost buna si terasa arata elegant, desi mobilierul a devenit mai practic, comparativ cu anii precedenti.
Ca sa conchid, trebuie sa recunosc ca cina de aseara m-a dezamagit putin si nu cred ca ma voi intoarce la Irish Pub prea curand.
