“Busy cafe, great food- snail slow service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

Considering this cafe is always busy, I expected the service to be a little slow but there are a lot of staff and it was extremely slow- too slow to be able to enjoy my meal. The water came out after about 20 minutes- I had time to drink the whole thing before the meal arrived 30 minutes later- only it was the wrong thing. After finishing that, the other half of the meal arrived. It would have been nice to have all three parts served together- they were not separate courses. However there is a good range of food and it was tasty. A lot of Russian foods on the menu like bliiny (pancakes) and soups as well as Georgian cheese breads. I prefered to sit outside, music was quite loud and it was quite smokey inside.

“Didn't want to stay”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2012

Dropped there during the day... It wasn't crowded, we were reading a menu for 3-4 minutes, but nobody came. We left.
Then dropped there late at night... A lot of people were there, but we felt uncomfortable and left again.
This cafe is mentioned as "recommended" in different guidebooks, but we didn't understand why. Soviet dishes? As persons from past-soviet country, we found only 2 "soviet" dishes: chicken Kiev and Kiev cake. Pizza and cheesecake are NOT a soviet dish, btw:))

“Very nice caffe with good quality food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

It is located near Sheraton hotel. Really a nice way organized, with pictures of Batumi from previous century. But the most important in this cafe is the quality of food which you will not receive in any other cafe of this type. Usually cafeys in Batumi are poorly decorated or propose bad quality food. But here you can get freshly prepared salads etc. Nice cakes etc. Because of its good quality it is always full in the evening. During the day time you will always find it half empty.
