We were craving for yak burger on this trip and this little cozy cafe definitely delivers! The staff was friendly, patient and sweet. Food was good, wifi was decent. Nice place to chill for drinks at night.

Very nice place, we felt like home with my Russian friend : French food, very nice staff, Russian traditional pictures on the walls.
A very good place to relax after some hiking or walks in the city, with nice staff and good food :)
If you get lost in shangrila, go say hi to this cafe !

This place definitely deserves the high rating it has on TripAdvisor. Everything is well organized, service is excellent and the food is delicious. The staff genuinely wants to do a good job and takes pride in their work.

Had the Yak cheese appetizer, Yak blue cheese burger and chocolate mousse (with Belgian chocolate!), all were very tasty.

This is one of the places where you'll end up staying longer than planned and end up waggling home because of not being able to resist eating too much.

They also have an elaborate choice of wines and beers.

Can recommend for a nice evening after a long day of sightseeing

I happened to pass by this cafe while exploring the Old Town, and it looked really cosy. I was tempted by the food on the menu as I had been eating so much local food. The wine list also looked interesting.

I had an avocado & feta yak burger with a glass of red wine (La Galope Malbec), and finished with a cappucino. The burger was excellent and the wine went well with it. The cappuccino was good too. The owner and waitress were both very friendly and helpful. Service was good and the prices were reasonable in relation to the quality of the meal and drinks.

All in all, my lunch was a real treat and it felt as if I had been transported from Shangri-La to a small cafe in France! I would definitely recommend the cafe to anyone in search of a nice Western meal in the Old Town.

A fantastic experience all the way around. My wife and I loved the yak burgers! The owner of the restaurant, an expat from France, was very helpful and clearly cares about delivering a good product. Highly recommend this place.
