This is an amazing local restaurant, the old building with the wall rugs and all kinds of local accessories and the waiters in traditional dressing really give an atmosphere. The food is great, the locally freshly beaked bread is amazing. All the dishes we tried...were perfect. And the price is pretty cheap (maybe not in local eyes)More

Located outside the old town, but definitly worthy to have a dinner. Fantastic starters - local cheese, salads, bread and wine On the floor there are quite places. Lovely scenery!

Quite ethnic and tasty Georgian dishes. The variety was amazing. Staff was very kind and respectful. Tables were more than 8ft apart. Inside decor was charming. We tried mixed kebabs and couldn’t finish half the food.

I was told that this is one of the best restaurants in Tbilisi…unfortunately I must disagree. First of all was super disappointed at the entrance. Hostess not friendly at all and gave me judging look together with one of the worst table in the empty...restaurant which obviously I changed. That’s definitely disappointing experience in the beginning of the evening. The food was good I must say. The only thing I didn’t like the selection of wine by glass. So if I don’t want to take a bottle of wine I have only one option of red Saperavi and that’s it. Which I find very weird. From my perspective didn’t worth the money… I’m sure there are much more nicer places in Tbilisi. Really sad because I’m sure this restaurant has good potential but customer service is super low. That’s why I will not come back again.More

Anybody who doesn’t give this restaurant 5/5 is not an avid traveler and doesn’t enjoy having an authentic, cultural experience. Everything from the decor to the service was wonderful. Most of the patrons were locals which is a great sign - if it’s good enough...for the Georgians, it’s good enough for me! The live band was so talented, playing a mix of Georgian and American songs. The audience was both energetic and warm. The food was also a hit. We did some khinkali and a grill platter. Also very inexpensive from a US perspective. We had a lovely time!More

I must say I was deeply disappointed! The service was good , the waitress was polite and attentive. When I told her that fish was not just awful tasting , but not fresh , she did offer to take it of the bill. I tried...appetizers -horrible taste, bread too hard and dry, tried meat -too hard and dry, tried tea-no taste . Tiramisu was not tiramisu by taste ,but look like it( just do not order it after all it’s not Georgian desert). Meat from harcho soup i literary had to spit out, too chewy. Overall the bill for 5 people was not bad, but I rather pay 5 times more and enjoy my meal !To be fare my friends liked the Kisi vine and they ate the majority of their food. Be aware people ARE ALLOWED to smoke at the table. The only 2 good things about this restaurant is smell of food and singers. Singing was exceptional, if the food somehow could catch up to the ambiance and traditional Georgian singing that would have made my evening!More

We read great reviews but our experience was different. The waiters hardly pay attention to guests. We ordered 1 portion of steak, 1 plate of tiger shrimp's. The plate of steak was brought by one of the employees to rest on s service table next...to us and only after we called one of the waiters, we got the plate. The meat was hard burn to death. Tiger shrimps were cooked with no salt so they were tasteless. There was a band playing music from the 90 not at all the folklore show we were expecting. We left 1 hour unsatisfied from the food or the ambience. I would call this place a tourist trap!More

Nice restaurant with delicious food and wine. The staff was super friendly. The atmosphere is traditional with music and dancing - we were more interacted than expected to be. The restaurant was beyond all our expectations. Just make sure to make a reservation in advance...and dress appropriately as they do have a dress code
 Would recommend to a friend!More
