Well, unfortunately a disappointment.
Waiter does not know what’s on the menu card, can’t explain.
Local wine „Pino“ taste is good, just served freezing cold.
The food portions are very small! Price / service not appropriate.
Chef was fair and responded to our complains. Might be improved in the future. May try again at another time?
Atmosphere is ok.
Just make sure there is no party at the same time you want to enjoy a quiet time.

Great foods to have at prices any westerner would pay at a nice restaurant, but to locals it is considered way too expensive and not worth it.
Seafood finds in the city are uncommon but can be found at mozzarella.
Very comfortable and excellent service. Real training for the servers
One of the best in town.

Уютный ресторан. Великолепная кухня.
Frankly, Shmkent is rather dull and this restaurant was a real find. On the first floor of a modern building, it is well appointed and welcoming. Food is good and the maitre d' had spent time in Manchester and speaks good English - very useful as the don't have English menus. Once we found this restaurant, we didn't eat anywhere else.

One of the best restaurants in Shymkent. Very good service and delicious dishes from the brand chef from Frankfurt. BarVilla restaurant situated in the city center, but it feels like you have launch/dinner in countryside villa. If you're in Shymkent it's one of the must-visited place,You would love this place for sure.
The restaurant is decorated in European style and the food is also European-style menu the quality of the food is average and not persistent. The staff is friendly and helpful and knows the menu well generally it is a very nice restaurant although the prices are a bit high for the quality.

Having read reviews I went here as a solo traveller looking for a bit of atmosphere. I sat outside and was ignored by the staff for so long that I nearly left; they were dealing with people at other tables. In the end a group at the table next to me helped and I ordered draft beer, salad and beshbarmak (local flat noodles with boiled beef etc.) it was good to try a local dish, although the beef was disappointingly dry and the poor service left a bad taste in my mouth.

Wide selection of menu items. Freshly cooked and quick services. Maybe a bit quiet as was a hotel attached restaurant, so didn't see many outside diners.
