Opened in late 1996 by globetrotting chef Harold
Schwarz, Tatonka has had an ever increasing following by local residents
and return vacationers alike.Featuring a timeless unique style of
mainly Asian, Latino and Mediterranean influences,Harold calls it
Globetrotter Cuisine, constantly evolving and creating new dishes.
Trained at some of Europe’s top hotels and restaurants,
he wandered overseas to follow the path of the great buffalo, named
TATONKA in the language of the native Americans. This led him over
the American Southwest to California, then east to the Hawaiian
Islands and further to Southeast Asia, where he fell completely
in love with the food and the people of Thailand.
Tatonka holds a unique place on Phuket's shores
with its style and ambiance and therefore also being featured as
an “Insiders Tip” in several guide books such as Lonely Planet,
Frommers, Insight Guide, Meridian and others.
