I was several times in there, in winter or in summer, always it is a good place to refresh yourself . In winter the interior of restaurant is like traditional house from Maramures and in summer you can find a place under the trees when is hot outside , you can hear the waterfall sound and you can breathe a...

The fish here is amazing and also the traditional mămăliga or potatoes. It is a family business and you can tell that because of the homey atmosphere. The servers are very nice, good humor people which is very normal to meet in these parts of Romania.

The staff is kind and deliver the food pretty fast. The menu is adequate and reflects "the obsession"of Romanian cuisine with pork. I like how the serving area is set up and that the buildings and the decoration are based on local motives. Unfortunately, every year I have the impression that the place is under construction. PS: the place is... More

This is one of my favorite local restaurants. It is a nice drive out a little ways from town. Open air dining in covered pavilions in the summer. The "open dining rooms" are over the water. Watch the fish and enjoy the scenery. There is a lovely waterfall. The local bread with a garlic dip is nothing short of spectacular.... More

Fresh fish, great location, pleasant atmospfere, friendly staff (even when the restaurant is overcroawded). Try the local handmad bread, catch your own fish, taste the traditional plumen brandy. You will remember with pleasure this place!

Worth everey money, especially if you are not from Romania. A little expensive, but all traditionaly food are grate and worth. The view is grate, beautifully waterfall and lakes. Is close to the Sighetul Marmatiei, Baia mare - 40-50 km.

A really nice place to have a meal (rural style restaurant with the waiters and waitresses dresses accordingly), but the service is a bit slow (although the friendliness of the staff helps) and they might mix up your order (as it happened to us).

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
