Great trout, great place

Probably the best meal we had during our trip in Romania, the staff does not speak english and the menu is written only in Rumanian but since you get here to eat their memorable trouts that is not a big problem. The location is beautiful, they only have outside seatings and it's ok even if is... read more

Driving along the Sighet Road and noticed this nice restaurant. The tables are setted around a lake where you see the trout. The waiters are dressed in traditional costumes and are very friendly. We ordered a grill trouta and caciocaval because I am vegerarian. Big portions and very nice the traditional bread. Animals are welcomed. Very cheap.

Nice trout, excellent view, slow service (probably to let us take in the scenery). Tasty, fresh lemonade. Pleasant shade on a hot summer day. (I would expect more care for the trout and flowers, though...)

It's a relaxing place where you can eat the best fried trout while listening to the water flowing. Less pleasant aspects: - the road over Gutin (DN18) is in construction, I hope to be ready in 2016; - noise of the generator for electricity, (maybe it might be a good idea to produce electricity with a micro-hydropower plant);

We've been staying here one night, on our way to Birsana Monastery. This location was first just a trout farm and then it became a restaurant and also a place to stay over night. A great idea and I want to congratulate the owner for his ideas. The food is excellent, everything is prepared right there and you can eat... More

Good food, trout is delicious, especially the soup. The landscape and outdoor restaurant over pond fish are wonderful. The services are very good. Prices ok. If you're passing through Maramures, worth to stop here for lunch.

A visit in Maramures country cannot be complete without a stop at “Pastravaria Alex, happy fish”. Located on the main road near Mara village it is the best place for lunch or dinner…And it is not only about the food, but also the location is wonderful. You can spend easily few hours here enjoying the beautiful landscape, the fresh air... More
