The tastes of Banat region enhanced by a scenic natural surroundingsENQUIRE
Fill your plate with the “best of”s from Banat and the dishes that grandparents used to eat back in the day, that are brought back by local families of chefs that prepare food with all their soul. The local praised salty cake “mălai”, made with corn flour, is accompanied by local sheep cheese, onion and optionally bacon. “Tocană”, a cold vegetable stew with rice, is still the go-to solution for conserved goods. Along with “sarme” (rolled cabbage), the local chefs are boasting great skills in preparing “balmaș”, a hot dish based on corn boiled in cheese. All these are accompanied by herbal teas from local plants, artisanal beer and wine, local plum brandy “răchie” and the mandatory high spirits.
We go to great lengths to make sure that the majority of the ingredients are locally sourced from small-scale agriculture for a great taste and in order to help out the local farmers.
The tastes of childhood spent in the countryside are brought back in a convivial atmosphere, with dishes “like grandma used to make”.

We are based in the Southern Carpathians near the Bison Hillock rewilding area, where over 100 bison roam free across one of Europe's most bio-diverse natural landscapes. Experience this wilderness for yourself and activate your everyday nature awareness. Your participation directly contributes to this rewilding initiative by engaging the local community and supporting local green services.
This is an instrument that keeps giving back to nature by funding small conservation projects to help maintain the wildness of the area. The fund is managed by WWF involving locals in choosing and implementing the local projects. From small river restoration projects to reducing pressure on certain habitats, we give back 10% of what you pay to nature.
