El Mirador Bar and Grill is one of the places to be! It is one of the most stylish restaurants in Almaty and becoming more popular by the day.

The multi-lingual staff give the same warm welcome to a mix of locals and ex-patriates every night of the week. Once in, the main attractions include the range of great food. It is well-known for its European and Argentine selections. We can promise that some of the best South American food is on the menu in El Mirador.

My Guide is proud to recommend the incredible salads, especially the eggplant salad with couscous. Some of the hot appetizers are also often requested. Spanish pili pili shrimps are not so common in this part of the world, but a favourite here. Give them a try!

Perhaps the most popular dish is the steak, but the fish is also excellent. Fish is available in Almaty but often disappointing to visitors. Those eating at El Mirador find it very high quality, especially the dorado fillet with spaghetti allier-olle.

If you have a sweet tooth then this is the place for you. There are a lot of impressive desserts. The classic brownie with pistachio semi-freddo and strawberries is a must-try, and many people call again for the sponge cake.

Business lunches are served on working days from 12:00 till 15:00, and the venue can be used for small meetings. It can be a great place for a romantic dinner or a swinging party. At weekends, all the rooms are packed with party-goers.

There are different seating areas on three floors. You may prefer to sit downstairs, but the upstairs areas are very impressive and many customers head straight up the stairs. Those heading downstairs get to Buenos Bar, one of the most popular lounge bars in Almaty. There is karaoke on Wednesdays and a DJ on Fridays and Saturdays.

There are two VIP rooms in El Mirador. One is designed for twelve people with a larger option upstairs seating 18. Each of the rooms offers privacy and luxury. To book a VIP room, contact the restaurant administrator.

Back in the main room, a saxophonist plays at 20:00 on Fridays and Saturdays and there is a live band at 21:30. From then until the early hours, find out why a night in El Mirador is considered one of the best things to do in Almaty.
