Just around the corner from the Russian Drama Theater, you will step down into this pub/bar/restaurant that has a big menu, and lots of choices, including many types of pizza. The room is decorated with quaint antiques and pictures.

I've been to Old Edgar a number of times - the reviews are pretty accurate - both good and bad. I've had pretty good service, but I always was there with someone who spoke Russian. Menus in English so you know what you are ordering. Mostly I've gotten pizza and salads, and they are consistently good. Sitting outside in nice weather is a treat - the downstairs indoor seating can be smoke-filled and loud if the band is playing. But if you are expecting that, it isn't bad!

A little off the beaten path and hidden behind the Russian Drama Theater.

Don't let the outside looks fool you. Like many of the old Soviet building here in Bishkek, it looks a little run down on the outside.

But once you walk in the place is very nice and cozy. It's decorated with old nostalgia and is warm and inviting. In the evenings they turn the lights way down and have candles lit. Along the jazz music it makes for a very romantic atmosphere to take your significant other. Or it can be a cool place to hang out with friends.

The food is great and so is the service. I had the pork steak. They also have a good selection of beer and drinks.

This place is small, so it's best to make reservations in advance because it fills up quickly. We didn't have reservations the night we went so we sat at the bar and ordered. Before out order was ready another table opened up and the waitress moved us to a nice table.

Overall this is a very relaxed environment and cool place to be. The patrons are a mix of everyone. I highly recommend this place.

Very disappointing to see that this place is not getting better. Maybe in summer times with outdoor seating but definitely not in winter.
