Hands down, this is one of the best restaurants in Astana. I frequently come to dine here for lunch and dinner and i've always received excellent service and what is more important, consistently excellent food. The management of the restaurant is very serious about training their servers to provide excellent service, they even wear white gloves! My favourite items on... More

Don't get me wrong. The food here is good, but it is not spectacular, nor surprising. Italian dishes done well. The service is great, staff is attentive but the prices are a bit over the top.

We just nipped in here during a downpour. Only had a drink so can't comment on food. The prices were probably equivalent to those in UK.

Dusty and tired interior decoration. Weak kitchen takes a lot to prepare. We ordered 2 different meals, they cooked just one and tried to reach the second with addings. Not very comfortable.

I have been to cafe star about 5 times. It is one of the best restaurants in Astana that I know. Maybe the only slight negatives are that it is a bit more expensive ( although I can understand with such menu) and a little quiet sometimes. I prefer places that have a bit bigger crowd. But the food is... More

Well located across from the dancing fountains, this restaurant has been located in the same spot for over 5 years and continues to draw good patronage because of the food and atmosphere. Is little on the expensive side but great experience and a must do!

Good food, good service, good location. Quite a vulgar and tasteless interior. There're many places in Astana for the same quality and much cheaper. This cafe is for people who enjoy showing off.... and this is 2016.....

It's not cheap, but it's probably the best value for money. I love my pasta, love the salad (although they removed my favourite with the pear from the menu). The service is up to the standard, and the ambience is lovely - both indoors and out. Been there with family, with a friend, on business. A good place to take... More
