Nestled in the middle of the forest in a former stable on the Singureni Manor equestrian estate, the restaurant forms a space-time continuum of stories, emotions, sensations, and memories waiting to be discovered.

“My menu at La Hambar is the never-ending story between people who inspired and shaped me and those memories we share throughout the years.

This is the promise of my unique 10 courses degustation menu.” declares Executive Chef Alexandru Dumitru.
