Shavi Lomi is very cosy restaurant . They have georgian cuisine,but not traditional one. All the dishes are made in the different ,home cooked style. The food is very tasty and whatever you'll order ,you'll never go wrong. I highly recommend this place.

Black Lion, aka Shavi Lomi, is a unique venue in Tbilisi, and the food is wonderful. In the first large eating room, there is a very large table for a Georgian style "supra" with lots of friends to eat and drink together, like the 12 apostles of Christ. This is also the non-smoking room, at least it was when i... More

Good food, maybe a bit overpriced and small portions but they do know how to cook, no doubt, service is fine, location hidden and lovely - place to go for a date or just to eat excellent Georgian 'upgraded' food. Do not hesitate - if you like good fancy food :D

This place is unique. Georgian traditional food is presented in alternative and creative way. Atmosphere is warm and original. People serving you are really good and try their best, but sometimes, especially if you're a larger group service becomes really slow. It seems they do not have sufficient equipment in kitchen to make sure orders do not take too long.

Went twice during our visit to Tbilisi, that's how good it was. Out of the city centre, this restaurant below street level has a lot of character, real Georgian food and good service. Smoke of tobacco, brick walls and velvet table cloths added up to the atmosphere. House wine was delicious as well as bean soup, khachapuri with steak and... More
