This is a grand and special spot. Service attentive. Food ok but the wait is typical Russian service. Slow, rude and slack. Won’t return

One of the rare occasions to be in Yalta in winter and decided to be back in this Grand cafe Apelsin. This is one of my nests in Yalta when I am here during summer season. This time the target was fresh "Oysters" (RUB 149-/pc)...- they started to cultivate oysters in Crimea and I found that Apelsin offers these. And indeed they were fresh and tasty - GREAT!!! As always the staff at the cafe is professional and offers great service. Went back to the cafe again a day later - spending time here twice in one week - simply a great place to be!! (NB.: This cafe is for adults and not for children.) NB: The address above is incorrect: Grand Cafe "Apelsin", im. Lenina embankment, 31, Yalta, Crimea Гранд кафе "Апельсин", Набережная им Ленина 31, Ялта, КрымMore

Good view, this only one what I can recommend. Poor kitchen, no menu for children, it is more fastfood, not restaurant. Not recommend

It's a lovely place with amazing food and service. And there I've tasted the best sushi ever. The interior is also nice, it makes you feel comfortable.

Gorgeous views over Yalta and the bay, but our food arrived at different times; I ended up having the sushi I'd ordered as a starter, for dessert! And our two plates of potato chips arrived a good 20 minutes before the rest of the main...courses, so were cold by the time we were ready to eat them! Gimmicky and fun as a one-off, with a pleasant atmosphere- but would need to improve the service (or at least the internal organisation of the kitchen!) and the quality of the sushi before we would return.More

Apelsin has 3 locations in Yalta, which we all visited. All three are unique but have several aspects in common: 1. Delicious cuisine consisting of European, Russian, Italian, and Japanese dishes (English menu upon request is provided, no translator needed). Highly recommend the Avocado Burger....2. Outstanding service with friendly and well-trained staff 3. Unique atmosphere: Beach cafe, as the name says it all, is on the beach; Grand cafe has an elegant touch for romantic dinner; Fusion cafe has the best view in Yalta, above the water. For tourists with a limited budget, Apelsin might appear too expensive.. however $10-20 (per person) are worth the visit!! Apelsin in Yalta deserves 100% recommendation.More

We went to the restaurant that looks like a ship ! Its on the sea and the whole atmosphere is pretty sick - sound of the waves and gulls flying by! Service was pretty good, could tell that the server was trying his best !...Food was great , we were a pretty big group of people and everyone ordered something different. Prices are def not low . I would still recommend the place .More
