We went to this restuarant as per recommendation from our hotel receptionist. We just arrived to Tbilisi and were very hungry, so we asked about the closest and good Georgian restaurant. The interior is very nice, many foreign and local guests, but I would not recommend to families with kids as smoking inside is allowed and smokers are not specially separated.
We found our table by ourself as we saw staff is very busy and it was not a problem. But when nobody came within 20mins, we took a menu card from another table, to speed up the process of ordering and limit the number of service coming to our table. In 5min we were ready to order, but nobody came, we looked around there were another guests waiting only for the menu. Somebody came in another 10min, we placed the order, as were hungry we decided to go for something not complicated, just main course with drink, no appetizer, no desert. Tender took our order, after 30 mins. arrived our main course but side dish was missing, potatoes arrived in the next 15 mins however we ate the meat already, maybe I forgot to mention to waiter, that we are not on a Separate food diet and can eat meat with potatoes together. After we ate meat and then potatoes, we asked for the bill. This arrived in another 10-15mins. It looked like the staff is not trained at all, they all looked like students working on summer brigade and not having any supervision. Well, the food was good, but to include service fee (tips) automatically to every bill is just enourmous insolence from this restaurant. The food is not for reasonable price as mentioned in another review, when I take overall experience which should be reflected in the price, this restaurant is overpriced. Obviously we as foreign travellers can't do anything against this, just to write a review and recommend others to avoid this place.
This restaurant is a shame of Tbilisi restaurants and does not deserve to be in top 15 restaurants even not to be in top 30. When we walked around there were many other restaurants with nice terraces, so there is always another place to go.
