Description: Recommended in the most prestigious cooking guides, the Baita Fraina Restaurant goes hand in hand with professionalism and quality. The two brothers Adolfo and Alessandro Menardi run the restaurant with their wives Anna and Tiziana. The restaurant has 3 rooms and a terrace where you can sit back and enjoy their cooking while gazing over the Tofane and the 5 Torri mountain groups. It has an excellent wine list with over 600 choices, specially selected grappa drinks and whiskeys. There is a room available to hire for private dinners and parties and also six comfortable bedrooms.

Separate small dining rooms within this restaurant give it a cosy feel. This was our most expensive meal in Cortina, although it was closest to the centre of town, so the lower taxi fare probably evened things out. Very traditional feel restaurant and we didn't think the cooking was entirely successful. The flavour of my venison loin was destroyed by being smothered in an overly sweet berry sauce and my husband went for the daily special venison dish with rice and mushrooms which by contrast was very dry. My warm pheasant salad starter course was lovely and light.

Friendly proprietors and excellent local cuisine in a warm, Tyrolese style chalet with great views over the valley where the Dolomites are Queen. A memorable lunch with fine service and generous hospitality, we will certainly return there if the opportunity presents itself.

The restaurant has a warm and rustic atmosphere. It is located 5 min by taxi from downtown Cortina. The pumpkin soup was lovely, and the deer roast was a perfect match with their organic Chianti. The chocolate mousse for dessert made ​​the meal really memorable.

A bit expencive though, but it is worth it. Outstanding service.

Great food, relaxed atmosphere and friendly service. So good we went back 2 days later. I had 3 pasta dishes ravioli with pork, ravioli with beetroot and lamb tagliatella. All were really tasty and very well presented. Clientele were a nice mixture of locals and touristas. Wine could have been better, but we chose cheap.

If you don't know where to go and it's dinner time this is not a bad option: service is good and the food not bad at all. Obviously isn't the first option in town but it's a good alternative to the best restaurants around . During the summer it is very pleasant to seat outside enjoying the terrace! Inside it's nice too, typical from the area.
