We came here guided by a romanian friend. This place is like a piece of heaven. Food is fresh (just catched fishes which swim in the near river). Many people and it's sometime difficult to find a place.

This is a beautiful place where you can taste fresh trout and other traditional meals !! In the summer you can also fish your own trout :-) You should give it a try!

The place is very nice with wooden houses and a lake where tourists can go fishing. The restaurant is designed to be traditional for Maramures, it really feels cosy and nice. Food is mostly fish, well cooked in many ways. The surprise was the delicious goulash soup and the good quality coffee. They brought us bread hot from the oven... More

After reading a lot of positive reviews here, we decided to go on a dinner on our first night in Mara. At the beginning the service was normal, although the waiter didn't speak English. We ordered a trout with fried potatoes. The fish was too much fried and the potatoes were green.After half an hour, we waived to another waiter... More

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.

The food was also very very very good, large dishes, extremely tasteful, fresh. And last but not least, friendly and welcoming personnel. We enjoyed every moment of our stay and... More
