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.

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.

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.
