Book in advance! No way to get in w\o booking especially on Friday! Good evening music: you can talk and hear each other what is unusual. The best main course I've ever tasted in Kazakhstan is the Horse meet on the hot stone. This is not only eating - it's a performance. You'll be given raw marinaded horse meet and special long fork and you'll cook the meet yourself!!! and regulate the right degree of meet prepatation! Be careful - it's spleshing up. Put the napkin over your collar:) to protect your tie or beautiful blouse. While having a Burthday you have to order a pie and as a service they will put a firework on it. Great!

The décor is nice and atmosphere is pleasant, if you manage to get a table away from the music source. if you are known in the city - be prepared to meet a lot of expats! The food is ok, a little on the expensive side, but bearable. But the service is not good - ordered barley beer to make sure a celiac person avoids wheat beer - of course all got the same wheat beer! we didn't notice until after too late! A little disappointing, but this is not unique to Line Brew!

This is one of my favourite dining locations in Astana. Both locals (upmarket) and the foreigners fill up in the cold nights of Astana. A totally different option than classical Astana restaurants. If you are a beer and meat lover, you are in the right place.

It has a nice ambiance of an old inn, pretty and competent ladies showing the way and serving. A rich menu, including horse sausage and meat, lamb as local delicacies. Don’t miss ordering several dishes to share, to be able to taste more, if you are couple of people. Meantime, fish and sea food lovers will find good options as well. Grills on coal, such as sausage, steaks are exceptional options.

Not all the year round, but there is live music (not local music, rather a soft English bar music) as well, to add a little bit more of a flavour to your night.

If you want a calmness take a seat on the second floor, to ve close to the open barbecue and music take the first floor, but definitely the exceptional is the tower, for which you need to be a decent group.

Best steak ever!! melt in your mouth. Beer is OK too. Decor is a castle exterior with balconies inside. Band a bit noisey.
But quality of food made up for everything

One of the interesting discovery about Astana is the number of German restaurants. This is one top notch place for steaks. The inside resembles a old pub with dark wood and beams. The place is large inside and has an outdoor seating area. The place can accommodate large groups and the service is very good even when busy. My steak was done to perfection and as requested. Good selection of beer. It also has a Russian style snooker table (the largest table I have every seen).

If you are in Astana this is worth the walk of the cab.
