The (veal and horse) tornedos with wild mushrooms at L'Affiche have been hands down the best meat dish I've had in Almaty so far - perfectly done and tasting so well that even days later the mere thought of them is mouth-watering! The Caprese salad was another highlight. They also offered very good choices of wine by the glass, and... More

I have eaten here twice. I thought the pasta dishes were pretty average and not worth the hassle, but the steaks and other meat dishes were quite good. I ordered the lamb shank and that was quite well done. It can be quite expensive, especially if you order wine or beer. The view is good, especially if it is summer... More

Recommended by some website this well located venue, just opposite the Opera and Ballet Theater offers overpriced mediocre dishes and wines at the 100US per bottle. At the end of the dinner there is always a surprise that the credit card terminal is not working and the staff asks you to walk the near by streets in search of ATM.... More

Sunday evening, 07.07.2013, at 21.15: "Sorry, we are closed!". Passing by, after 2 hours, (meanwhile having the dinner in another resto), people still eating inside... Another disappointing incident regarding the customer orientation in local restaurants. I'll come back with a review regarding the food (I hope a very positive one), if we finally succeed to have a dinner there...Last year... More

Decent steak and French fries. But overall no good value for money. Service below average. Do people continue to smoke in Kazakh restaurants? I thought it was forbidden...

L`AFFICHE is the best restaurant I have been to so far in Almaty. The service is excelent, with waiters who speaks perfect english and value their guests! I had a Salad with roast beef and spinnach, it was not very special but worth every tenge! And had water-pipe after dinner! Good chairs, nice music and calm athmosphere. Perfect for couples,...
