About Tatonka & Chef

Produce inspired cuisine using fresh local ingredients and combine them in a unique way. This innovation leads to a large tapas size selection of appetizers, where sharing is the idea to allow each diner to sample a true firework of flavors.

Daily hand picked fresh local seafood , tender meats and creative desserts complete a menu packed with bold flavors.

Chef Harold Schwarz showcases  his Globetrotter Cuisine inspired by his vast culinary experiences from working stints in Germany, France, Switzerland, California, Colorado and Hawaii as well as his extensive travels abroad.  Tatonka’s unique space features an alfresco, gastronomic dining experience under a vine covered, flourishing courtyard or Native American canvas ceiling.  The ambiance is enhanced with an open kitchen, allowing diners to relax and watch the chefs at work whilst indulging in handcrafted cocktails, chilled local brews or a global wine selection.

Tatonka seats a maximum of 50 diners, half indoors, half outdoors and can be separated for small private functions with custom designed menus.
