The place is situated in a nice location with a good view over the waters with trout. Although having a limited menu, the trout is one of the best I ever had. The personnel is very polite. Not recommended visiting in cold weather when the only option is the inside with very limited places. Recommend ordering the full plate trout,... More

Stopped here for a lunch break on our way up to the Ukraine. Lovely spot to stop and enjoy the scenery. The fish ponds were partly frozen and very beautiful. The food was fine most enjoyable. A touch more expensive than what you may expect in Romania, I guess it's aimed at the tourist. We'd stop at Pastravaria again if... More

Grilled trout with a fairly coarse polenta is the standard fare here, and what you should be having as well. Enjoy the scenery, let the kids roam around and climb the mountainside. Four stars for a different, pleasant experience and the grilled trout. Limited menu prohibits anything higher.

We were on our way back home and wanted to have some fresh trout and enjoy the scenery. Great ambiance, quick service, a bit too expensive for romanian standards, but overall lovely lunch. Grilled trout is very tasty! Trully recomend the visit. Excellent Sunday lunch experience.

Fish was overlooked, and not very tasty. They also tried to overcharge by giving the bill only with the total sum. When asked for a detailed bill, they hesitated but eventually apologized. Place is probably much nicer in summer.

We were looking for a place to eat and found Pastravaria Alex. The food, the restaurant atmosphere and service are excellent. If you are looking for a traditional Romanian restaurant in Maramures this is the place to eat.

The fish soup and the trout was excellent. The trout was very fresh. Very quick service. The restaurant is very well organized, there are several "kitchens", one in the main building and one or two in the outside terrace area. This is probably why the food comes so fast. The prices were fair. They also have some farm animals and... More

It is a great place to eat, especially if you like fish. The water is full of fishes and after you order they are fishing it from the water, so it's fresh. You can also order steak or something else, but the fishes are their specialty. The area is very nice and quiet! I loved it!!
