Rural style restaurant with the best fish dishes in the whole area. Once you manage to place your order (the place is packed most of the time) the food is served promptly. The atmosphere is great. There is no smoking inside which is a big plus. In local terms it's a bit pricey, but it's money well spent. The only... More

Pastravaria Alex (sat Mara) este locul unde mananci si "te linistesi".Pestele este super bun, restaurantul arata "maramuresenesc" si este tot timpul plin;poate dura ceva pana comanzi si pana vin preparatele, dar merita "efortul'.

This one of my favourite places where you can have fish. The ambient is maramures rural style. Waiters are very polity and trivial. When you arrive, have two packs of patience till good arrives because it is always full with people. In the mid time you can go outside and feed the fish, or select the one that you want.

Unfortunately they are so understaffed and badly orvanized that you get rather angry that happy to visit such beautiful place. They shoukd never mess with tired hungry people on a sunny Sunday :(

Been here for the first time but it's a worthy choice: fresh trout (you can actually see the fish in the pond). Good service, although a bit slow. You are surrounded by nature, hearing the grasshoppers sing and the river flowing.

After visiting the old Maramures is one of the best places to eat a fish. Enviroment and nature is one of the best places. Prices are ok and food is great.
