Atra Restaurant,
Doftana Valley

Fine dining experiences in the heart of nature, on the shores of Paltinu Lake

ATRA Restaurant
is a destination per se

Atra Restaurant is a destination per se, beckoning you to indulge for a day, just to dine and to recharge yourself with the beauty of the place, quietly, without the strain of time.

This is not a conventional restaurant, but a journey of senses which leaves you no choice but to give in.

Food is cooked slowly, with respect for each ingredient and process, therefore, the only “espresso” we serve is coffee. In addition to waiting by the lake, among the mountains and hills, we offer incentives to delight your eyes and soul. The restaurant offers fine dining with fresh ingredients from local farmers and vegetable growers, from the sheepfolds, trout farms, forests, orchards in the surrounding hills and mountains. Atra’s menu is created by Head Chef Ionut Gagiu, who masterfully combines the resources and richness of the place according to the season, to delight all senses. The Atra kitchen, promoting the “farm to table” concept, is the perfect place for Chef Gagiu to express innovation. At Atra Restaurant we take a minimalist approach to fine dining where ingredients are allowed to breathe and conquer through simplicity and taste. Working closely with local farmers, with the sheepfolds and trout farms of Doftana Valley offers countless riches allowing us to surprise even the most demanding tastes with unique combinations. Chef Gagiu uses seasonal ingredients from local resources and defines menus and courses according to seasons, the concept of cuisine in harmony with nature being unwavering to him. On weekend evenings, for the ultimate experience, you have the opportunity to participate in fine dining & wine pairing dinners, as a final declaration of love for all the senses, in a pairing recital that Chef Ionut Gagiu and Sommelier Adrian Tertea propose to your delight.
