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

img_2072

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 was told about this place prior to booking this trip to Romania, and I added it to my list to visit and try.

Today we were meeting a friend that we have not seen since December 2016/January 2017, and we had planned to meet for brunch.

On arrival to here the outside looked very nice, so I took a quick look inside and again it was very nice. The closest I could say it looked like was a Patisserie Valerie, but for me a lot brighter and more modern.

While waiting I ordered a coffee.. (Sorry can’t remember how much this was I think around the 6 LEI maybe less)

Now this is how to present a cappuccino! I loved this and was ready to see how good the coffee was here.

This was a very nice cappuccino, and if I visited here again I would order this again.

Now on to the brunch…..

The Brunch…

Sweet Breakfast Platter 49.9 LEI

On arrival again the first thing to grab my attention was the presentation, this was amazing and I loved both plates presentation.

The next was how much there was, but my thought on arrival and still is….there should have been 2 Croissants as you got so much spread you really needed at least 2.

This was a perfect size brunch, it couldn’t have been a breakfast or a lunch as it was very filling but since I didn’t have a breakfast today this was perfect and yes I finished it all.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 5
Presentation : 5

Overall

I really liked it here, and even though the cost was more than other places in Bucharest I would like to visit here again on my next trip.

Day Trip to Gretna Green & Gretna Gateway Outlet

IMG_8428.jpg

Visit Date : 3rd June 2017

Websitewww.gretnagreen.com

I had not been to Gretna Green for many years, and couldn’t really remember much about the trip there and what was actually there so I had a day off work and decided to visit.

If you want the history of Gretna, my best advice would be to take a look at the website as thats going to be a lot more accurate than me.

The weather for today was mixed, it kept changing from rain to sunny and looking at the clouds it was hard to tell what was coming.

The journey from Glasgow to Gretna was very nice, the weather on the way down was nice and sunny and it was really nice to see all the greenery and the nearly clear skies.

After 2.5 hours driving we arrived….

To be honest there isn’t a lot to do here, but it is a nice little walk around. If your in to history then you can take a few tours, read a lot about each little building and the romantic history.

There are your normal tourist shops, and a few places to eat and relax.

Places To See When Here : 

  1. Blacksmith Shop
  2. Shopping
  3. Eat and Dine
  4. Gretna Outlet

As you walk about there are a lot of little sculptures, with descriptions and also some posters with information and facts about Gretna Green to read which is very interesting.

Before heading to the outlet we sat down and got some Afternoon Tea.

I can’t remember the name of this cafe, its right next to the big hands. The afternoon tea was around £12 for two, and I have to admit for the money it was amazing as you got loads and could have easily fed 3 people.

Fed and watered now on to the outlet…

The outlet isn’t that far away from here, and as you would expect a good amount of shops with free wifi and ok prices.

I did get myself a nice hoodie when I was here, I couldn’t visit and not get something that would just be rude 🙂

This was a nice little day trip out, and was nice to see a very famous area that has a lot of romantic history. I was told people still come from all over the world, just to get married here.
