Built in 1808 the enormous, three-level Hanul lui Manuc (Manuc's Inn) is one of Europe's last remaining caravanserai. The large interior courtyard is a spectacular sight, a great place to eat and drink and is essential for any visitor to Bucharest, not least the grand staircase to your left as you enter from Strada Franceza. A hostelry ever since it opened the Han is now run by the City Grill group and has seldom been better. Serves good, simple Romanian food (the mici are excellent, as is the enormous lamb shank - enough for two people) and a more than decent pint. On rainy days head down into the crama (cellar): note that at the weekend especially you will need a reservation.
