Having been mightily impressed with the Kochevnik at lunchtime, we were recommended this place by some local people. There was a good mix of locals and foreign travellers dining there - initially a good sign. We dined outside, although we wee told that the over-table light "wasn't working", it spontaneously lit-up, without any obvious human intervention, after about 20 minutes. The atmosphere is "boutique" with music and videos. The food itself was disappointing and very ordinary and the service was also very poor with one dish arriving very late indeed - and it was cold when it did arrive.

The coffee (Americano) was really aromatic. Unfortunately it failed to deliver in terms of taste, and the coffee was quite weak. They have some interesting menu items, which are not generally available in Kyrgyzstan. Eg first time I've seen peanut butter and jelly Sandwich on the menu.

Brilliant if you want to watch sports. (Brilliant in terms of what the rest of Karakol offers, don't expect wall to wall TVs). The meals are wide ranging, but in classic Central Asian style the full selection isn't always on offer. Staff are friendly, especially when you ask to watch some football.

Located a block off the main street, this restaurant has a nice setting, fast service and good local food (recommended by a local who eats there often). Our group enjoyed lag man noodles, shorpa soup, greek salad, and sizzling beef with vegetables. All the food was good but the sizzling beef and the local bread was particularly good. Next time we will try the manty dumplings!

I worked at a pizza place for over a year and I did enjoy Lovely Pizza. I have been there a few times and I have enjoyed it. I would go back again a few more times. Over all I felt like I was back in Europe and at a small chill cafe.
they have good WIFI

Love this coffee shop (1 of 3 in karakol), not just for the chilled atmosphere and the good coffee, but for the fact that the owner/operator of the cafe has set up Fat Cat as a social Enterprise. And is always pushing and supporting others...MoreKyle, thank you very much, we always enjoy serving great people! Looking forward to hosting you again.

Cafe "Kochevnik" is a cosy cafe in the heart of Karakol city, Kyrgyzstan. Our guests are enjoying our modern interior with a touch of ethnic kyrgyz decorations. Here you may find a rich variety of asian fusion cusine along with european standards meal. We welcome you to share your trip with us and you will never regret your choice!
It's really worth searching this place out as the food is excellent and there is a very warm welcome. They also do a superb Borscht and fried noodles. The ambience is relatively sophisticated, the service highly efficient and it is scrupulously clean. Unmissable for lunch or dinner : it deserves a far higher profile than it seems to have.
