“Beyond praise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

We were invited in this restaurant by our georgian friends and were very impressed. The table was overladen with delicious food. On the stage appeared different dancers and singers, but all of them were really amazing.

P.S. I'd like to apologize to the restaurant: I suppose our georgian friends felt a bit tipsy after so many glasses of wine. Apparantly that's why they started to throw at each other a cake:) I'm really sorry for making dirty all over the restaurant..:)

“Good food, bad service and music.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

We decided to go to this restaurant in our last night in Tbilisi, after an advice from our guide, we asked the agent to book us a table. When we got to the restaurant I was in shorts and as told I cold not eat there dressed like that, there a dress code that does not allow shorts but allows jeans... strange for me. After some argument we were given a table in the terrace, wich was a very good idea, since the music inside was very loud, and we had an excellent view to the city.
The food is very good and tasty, th wine was great, but the service was very poor, they do not remove the plates from the table, unless you tell them to, also very slow.
Anyway it was worth for the food and the view.

“Wonderful evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

We had the chance to be invited by georgian friends there. The food was great, so were the wines. The view on the river is also not to be missed.

“Terrific lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

This is a lovely restaurant, with the option to eat outside on a veranda overlooking the old city of Tbilisi (and the Metekhi Church, hence the name). The selection was terrific, and everything we had was deliciously prepared and very typically Georgian.
