We really enjoyed the food here, we had breakfast daily. On our last day at Nobil, we went for a quick bite for lunch. They were very concerned if their hamburgers competed with American burgers... they were very good, but that's a tough bar to pass. ;-)

Where in the world have you seen something like that : You have a bottle of wine to start with. You order a second bottle of wine and they take orders for your meal. Then they tell you that the table they set for you ..... has been booked by someone else and you have to leave within an hour!!!!... More

We were expecting a great meal in the lovely room in this somewhat pricey restaurant. But before we even took a bite, there were several problems: first, blaring music--40s jazz, not to my taste--from a disc jockey. No "fine dining" establishment needs a disc jockey in the middle of the dining room. Second, several elevated TVs playing The Fashion Channel,... More

We had a quick lunch here but were impressed with the food and the service. We had salmon (asked that it not be overcooked and it was perfect) and a burger (having been traveling in the area for over two weeks and seeking an alternative to "local cuisine") both were excellent. Reasonable prices for an upscale hotel top floor restaurant.... More

The rooftop terrace offers great views of downtown Chisinau in a relaxed atmosphere while you enjoy good food. Definitely the place to go when you want to impress someone.

Enjoyed by one visit to the Nobil, though the terrace was closed because of rain so we sat inside. Waiter was helpful and friendly, though seemed unsure about the dish my date ordered (fish cooked under salt). Tried to take it back to the chef because he thought is wasn't fully cooked, then brought it back after the chef told... More

Three of us ate there - lovely setting up on the 7th floor looking over the city. The setting is faux plush and decidedly upmarket.
