Wonderful atmosphere, good food, but hold the salt!

Kala is one of several restaurants on one of the few lovingly restored streets in Tbilisi old town. It has a large, canopied outdoor area and a cost interior of warm wood that feels down-to-earth and unpretentious. Prices are good, and the service friendly and polite.

I just discovered this wonderful place , prices are normal. It is near the Liberty Square , good service and atmosphere. We tasted coffee and salad Cesar , salad was really excellent and I must say one of the best which I tasted in Tbilisi. Smoking is allowed , musicians where singing and it was really good.

Very friendly English speaking service, and they explain what you going to order in details. The food is just nice and tasty and after living for 8 years in Georgia i can say its authentic cooked and very tasty. Best khatshapuris in town for sure.

Billed as the oldest cafe in Tbilisi, Cafe Kala serves cheap good food and beer at pretty cheap rates. Set on a street of other food joints, it does simple local food well with attentive service and nice booths in a semi open area so you can watch the world go by.

I like the atmosphere and enjoyed the food but after eating at several other Georgian restaurants I realized that they were not so good at Georgian food.

If you're in Downtown Tbilisi and want to listen in the evening good quality live music, you could not find better place than Kala. Don't listen me, go and listen good music in the evening.

Tbilisi's restaurant scene is pretty eclectic, and one has to be innovative to keep ahead. While pleasant enough, Cafe Kala does not stand out. It has a good location, serves "normal" Georgian fare and has nothing to dissuade others from visiting. However, it isn't the most imaginative, and really typifies a rather good standard of restaurants, but nonetheless is not... More
