I have ordered 2 dishes, a cup of pumpkin soup and schnitzel. Soup was lovely. Schnitzel was a very big surprise. It was huge! And also it was not a typical Viennese dish. The meat inside the tasty cover was quite thick but still so delicious!!! Service was quick; service staff was nice and... read more

Affordable and good restaurant in a very charming part of the city. Tables outside are better as inside people smoke and there is live music.

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.

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 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. The should try out there food before offering it to customers. Waitress was busy texting, so i had to call her twice for everything i asked. She would forget my requests instantly after leaving our table. Poor management.... More
