Beautiful place, with a stunning garden area expertly hidden in a residential area. You will get the full Georgian experience; food, wine, and atmosphere are just excellent. You can't go wrong with this one!

Food is moderately priced for Tblisi. I don't believe it is halal, but I really don't know.
