Know Your Dana Hospitality Team

Evgeni Shpetrik

For more than 25 years, Chef Evgeni has had the honour to delight guests with his favourite cooking – BBQ smoking and fusion.

This love of cooking was followed by a series of international professional experiences. It was during those experiences that he was able to establish his knowledge and confirm his passion for various cultures and traditions related to food and regional produce.

Making guests happy is what he enjoys most about cooking from scratch every day. His love of innovating and working with new ingredients to create delicious meals gives him a personal sense of accomplishment.

True satisfaction and a small rush of adrenaline comes when all plates have been sent out to the guests during busy hours. The greatest compliment for him is seeing people enjoy their food!
