The trout was perfect, the vegetable dishes even better. We really enjoyed our lunch and will return again.

Great service and very friendly staff. Best place for a family meeting and Sunday lunch. You should order papanași!

Traveling along the newly reconstructed Rte 18 you will stumble across this gem of a restaurant. With only locally sourced food, with gardens and their own trout caught on site, you will be treated to the freshest of meals. Take the time to explore the grounds, waterfall, fountains and water wheel.

We were there with my family for dinner. We choose the location after some friends recommended it. The scenery is fantastic and we saw some big fishes in the pool. But the problems appeared when we tried to find a free table. It took us 30 minutes to sit down. After another 30 minutes we left because no waiter came... More

Lovely people, great restaurant, a very Romanian experience. Eating is under cover but beware of mosquitoes so if you are prone to bites take your repellent because you are sitting above the water.
