Watch out for fried potatos for $30.
I guess Russians are really fond of potato. So much that Tatiana choose to have it listed as a very first side dish and with "market price" next to it.
I ordered lamb kebab there last Sunday. The dish came with no side. Called waitress, asked for "potatoes or something". Waitress checked if "home fried potato with mushrooms be OK". I had no particular interest in specifics on how and what with they fry the potato there, so instead of checking on the price, I nodded in agreement.
Checking the bill, I noted that the total (after the enforced 10% service charge) to be much higher than expected. Could not believe it - the fried potato with some weird, rubbery taste mushrooms were sold to me @ the "market price" of $29.50 ... Nice
I can see an elderly Irish or German potato lover tourist on the budget, without knowledge of Russian specifics on pricing out the mushrooms, asking for a glass of water and fried potatoes and these ex-Soviets recommending the stuff they sold me.
the touristy joint that has not so touristy food - simply the best!!!.
Honestly, love the place. This Sunday going again, and can't wait. Been going for many years, and never disappointed. Strongly recommend.
It used to be good.
I must say I used to wait for summer so that we can go to boardwalk and Tatiana cafe. But this year's visit was disappointing. There're some changes on the menu, (including prices) and the quality of food is not there anymore. I so hope they will turn around for mext summer. (They are open during winter too, it's just so much better to sit outside in good weather.)
Russian Food At It's Best.
I'm Russian - so nothing can really surprize me from the Russian kitchen... EXCEPT for the quality! :) This visit to Tatiana Cafe was very pleasant. We were welcomed by the smiling, attentive staff, who remained the same through out our visit. Dishes were brought out in a timely manner. Food was fresh and very well prepared and served. The prices were decent but the dishes were difinately worth it! The places is spacy and nicely decorated. We will defuately go there again!
Tatiana Cafe has the best food i have ever ate. Honestly i have been going there for several years now, and the food just gets better and better. The menu has so many varieties, and anything that you would pick is completly utterly delicous. The view is beautiful, it is right on the boardwalk. Not only is the outside extrodinary but if your looking for good entertainment with a big party then u can definitly enjoy sitting inside.
