“15000 tenge are you kidding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

I did visit this restaurant tree or four times, no questions it is the best in Almaty. But my check never was less then 22000 tenge for two ( usual course salad, fish, desert, bottle of wine - from the midle of the shelf). Last time, it was year ago same course for two cost me 43000 tenge plus tips 15%, which was $350. Be aware of this!

“Very Professional”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

I was very impressed by the professionalism of this restaurant.
The fresh fish is very fresh and you choose your fish from the iced display.
We ordered sea-bass encased in a thick covering of salt and cooked in the oven.

We appreciated that the waiter asked us precisely when we wanted our main course, since fresh fish requires very precise timing if you want it precisely cooked - which we did. The waiter also filleted the fish in front of us with great dexterity and altogether gets full marks for professionalism.

The wine list fullysupports the high quality of the food.

Highly recommended for the food.
But it ain't cheap.

“Best seafood place in Almaty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2012

A bit hidden away from the main restaurants streets, this restaurant can boast with seafood with great taste. Since Kazakhstan located very far from seaside, it is hard to find good seafood, but this place make their best to provide the customers with fresh variety of fish.

The cooks and waiters are the serbian guys who make their best to help the customers with food choice and the way it cooked. I would recommend to get "home-made potatoes" as a side dish.

The interior of the restaurant is not very sophisticated. Usually, the place is not very crowded, so you will not have any issues with the seating there. The average bill was about 7000 KZT (~$50 USD) per person.

I would go there to enjoy delicious food, but it is not really a party-like, lounge-type place.
