Good, but not amazing

The location and views were great, but the food was only average, only pork bbq was really good. Nice performances as well!

The restaurant was close to my hotel and I stopped in for dinner as a solo diner. Although the restaurant was at best 25% full, they refused to seat me claiming that reservations are required. Don't go as a solo diner.

Yesterday, I spent my very first evening with friends in Tblisi. They brought me to this restaurant next to abusy road. We enjoyed a great view over the "canyon" on the terrace We could enjoy a beautiful sunset. This was ly first contact with Georgian food and wine and Borjomi salted water. The table was richly filled with little delicious... More

It was the first place I was taken for diner upon my very first visit to Tbilisi. A lot of years went by since that time and memories are fading but not the quality of food and service. If anything I guess it improved over the years. For those who are keen to immerse into Georgian culture there are events... More

Only now I realise that this restaurant seems to be quite famous. I was invited to go there by a business partner. The personnel was friendly, although quite slow. We ordered several local dishes. All were very tasty! One aspect that was putting some shadow on our evening was the fact that I got lamb instead of the ordered veal.... More

Wonderful view, excellent sommelier but when I had to pay for a broken wineglass at the end with a check of 326 GEL all the energy and service the sommelier has gives us slipped away.. Unbelievable how unhospitable and crazy!!!!!

Visited this restaurant. Three days ago. Food was nice and a really great view. But the prices are really high for Georgia and Service just disgusting. I was asking to bring napkins few times. When we finished our salad they did not take the plate until I asked to take empty plate. They are taking more 10% from order but... More

A Georgian friend of mine invited me here and after looking it up online I feared it would be a tourist trap. We met for a late lunch on Saturday and the place was nearly empty. We ordered the obligatory eggplant with walnuts and khachapuri, both quite good, and then a perfectly pan-fried trout and veal ribs with spicy sauce... More

They're trying to pretend it's a posh & fancy place by telling on the phone there's a dress code. However it's still pretty democratic so don't bother too much. The view from the balcony is awesome. Food is great. Service is slow as the place is often fully booked.

Typical great Georgian food as you may find in several places in Tblisi. This Saturday was special because several weddings were celebrated at one time. Impressing show on stage including polyphonic singing and dancing.
