“Stunning scenery… but that’s about it”

Reviewed 9 October 2012

A friend of ours raved about Meraba in Hurzuf on the basis of his years-old experience. And even though I knew nothing good could possibly last for so long in Ukraine, we decided to give it a try.

Hurzuf is a lovely scenic village, always worthy a visit. And Meraba is situated in one of its most picturesque areas: in the pedestrian zone, right on the quay near the moor. Its summer terrace faces the stunning Hurzuf bay with the Genoese Rock (“Genevez-Kaya”) dominating over it. The so-called Chekhov’s Cottage (a branch of Anton Chekhov’s Museum) is in a few minutes’ walk away from it.

This fabulous sea view is nearly the main reason I could possibly recommend Meraba for.

Sadly, cuisine (and Tatar is the restaurant’s specialty) was no longer good enough to make all the way here. My salad had some rotten bits of tomato in it. Pilaff was too dry, as if it’s been heated several times already. Since it was early October, they no longer kept the cook who worked with mangal, so no shashlyk was available. Grilled meat was quite good though. But then again, coffee was none of what I like.

Luckily, service was another factor to have smoothed our experience, in addition to amazing view. It was truly surprising for Crimea, but our waiter was very polite and top attentive.

All in all, I’d hardly come back to eat in Meraba. But it can be a lovely place for a drink while enjoying a fabulous view over Hurzuf bay.
