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

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 we found that friendly, helpful service is... 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.

If you want to try really delicious georgian food, this is the place! We ordered a lot of dishes to share among 6 people and everything was DELICIOUS. What surprised us was the normal prices versus the food quality. It is located on the river bank in the city centre with a nice view. Taking a taxi is the easiest... More

Waiting forever for rude waiter, getting half cold food and when we wanted to pay with card we were waiting like 10 minutes for this guy that can use terminal. And for this prices you can get much better food around the city. Nice looking place with terrible people.

We arrived at around 10:30pm for dinner with high expectations and the desire to enjoy a good meal. But no way... The place was SO EXTREMELY NOISY, so loud the music it was, that we couldn't even talk to each other!!! We had to leave before ordering any food and decided to go to our favourite restaurant in town.. This... More

It's among the restaurants where I got to experience traditional Georgian food during my first work assignment in Tbilisi. A foreigner friend from Finland introduced me to this place. As a newcomer in 2010, I found this restaurant interesting as the ambiance and local band/dancers provided me an opportunity to experience Georgian cultural heritage. It's one of the restaurants in... More
