Sometimes the heavy Georgian main dishes of stuffed breads/dumplings etc. can get tedious. This cosy little restaurant in a popular lane of old Tbilisi offers a welcome change. We had excellent steaks and great salads with Georgian walnut dressings. The décor and atmosphere are also good, as is the selection of wines.

High quality Georgian and European food, great wines, quick service, very nice location in one of the most popular and lively streets of the old city. Fantastic to sit outside in the summer with wine and food platter too. But do try Georgian meals and their great Greek salad.

Another honest food review... this time from Tbilisi. Oh God. We were unwelcome to the nice looking location with grins and eye rolls. We ordered our food excited to taste the so called nectar of the Caucaus. I started with the chicken soup which took 45 minutes to bring to the table. It was watered down and had no chicken... More

Don't be fooled by the disgusting service, the food is also disgusting. The decor is beautiful, however.

The place is really nice, and the food is ok, the live music is awesome, but the service is disastrous. The owners would better train their personnel to be polite.

12 Rue Chardin gives an impression of an eccentric place due to its decorative fittings on her walls ranging from type writers to musical instruments. It is a medium sized restaurant=bar at a convenient location. There is live jazz music after 8.30pm, but the band is also eccentric somehow as it was swithching from Jazz standards to Bossa Nova time... More

This restaurant serves a mixture of European cuisine. A popular place among Tbilisi residents and the visitors. Live music plays in the evenings. Reservations are recommended as it get packed towards the evening. Very nice design of the restaurant.

12 rue Chardin is one of the best restaurants in Tbilisi. I was there last year. I came to Tbilisi to celebrate New Year with my friends even this year. I love 12 rue Chardin. Everyone will enjoy from a very nice and friendly atmosphere and the live music in the restaurant.
