How do you rate an evening that starts out bad but turns out great?

First off, the grounds here are very charming and we had a table right on the river, nice evening with a captivitating view. The interior dining areas also looked very nice. The menu featured a lot of typical Georgian foods with an extra page of house specialties. In our several days in Georgia... read more

The food is fine, the service is OK, and the location on the river is a plus. Still, there is little personality to the place, and it has a sterile feeling. Be sure to get a river view, though the river can have an aroma, depending on the season.

Close to the river, excellent music and food in a traditional looking restaurant. Ideal to sit outside on a warm evening.

Don't go to the Old House restaurant if you're not ready: 1)to express your feeling, like Georgians do 2)for dancing, singing together with all visitors 3)to dive into this ocean of passion, sincerity and cheerfulness Otherwise, you will enjoy the authentic show, good food and incredible company of local people! Tip: drink white!

Good food and really large portions, but it was not comfortable for me because of interior and slow staff.

We only went here because we wanted to hear some Georgian singing - it had all the hallmarks of the sort of tourist trap we try to avoid. The singing was very good, but only lasted a few minutes. There was also dancing, again very skillful (although perhaps not so authentic) but that too didn't last long. As for the... More

Food was excellent, entertainment was very good. It was a little noisy so do not expect too much conversation. However, it has great atmosphere and made for a fun evening.

A large group of us went to this charming restaurant close to the river in the centre, for dinner. The traditional Georgian food and wine were excellent and the waiters very attentive. The dancing and singing group were superb. One of the best restaurants I have been to in Tbilisi. I will certainly return.
