Very nice place with live music. We tried several salads and appetizers (very good). Pleasant atmosphere, very friendly staff. Lovely place to spend a few hours, listen some jazz and enjoy a glass of Georgian wine.

The food was fantastic (we tried several starters), the dessert (tiramisu) delicious. The coffee was good quality. The service was friendly. And live music.

Ok, I can understand that you want to have a drink and seat for a while. But think seriously if you should eat here. Prices are totally overpriced and comparable to capitals in europe, with better locals and music. Make a favour to your pocket and walk up a few streets and you will eat better and much cheaper.

A large group of us stopped at this cafe while on a walking tour of Tbilisi. Erekle Street is a lovely place to stop for a drink or meal, it's very pretty and filled with cafés where you can watch the world go by. Cafe Kala offers a delicious homemade lemonade, so delicious that we returned the following week.

We visited this places twice but the second time isn't enjoyable at all due to its rude service! We were asking whether our order was correct the waiter gave us a look like he would never do anything wrong and walked away which really pissed us off! Then another lady tried to explain our order impatiently without asking why we... More

I was rather disappointed with food there. I ordered baked, wrapped potato with sour cream, thry brought boiled potato, which tasted terribly.

She would forget my requests instantly after leaving our table. Poor management.... More

this is not a cheap place, especially not for georgians, so plz people stop comparing these prices to scandinavia and other euro places. a nice singer is there on saturdays and the service is ok, nothing to complain rly.

Nice café in the tourist-trap street of Tbilisi, in the middle of old town. Decent atmosphere, with cozy sofas, but clearly overpriced. I paid 10 Lari for just an orange juice!

We just went in and appeard that it is some popular place. Atmosphere was very cosy and unformal. Food was great and waitress was very friendly and helpful. And about 9 live jazz music started!!! It was famous georgian singer performing. So we really enjoyed. Definetly worth to visit!

One of the nicest Georgian restaurants in Old Town. Very attentive and friendly staff, good simple food at decent prices and cozy atmosphere. Live jazz at nights is a nice little bonus, although the crowd doesn't always seem to appreciate it. Jazz afficionados should check out Gia, the piano player - a sort of Georgian Thelonious Monk...
