I was there with a group of friends (9 people). Each of us received a menu card. We ordered some salads, and Georgian traditional dishes. Our waiter was very impatient, nervous; when we asked on details on some menu positions she answered down to us with visible antipathy. All dishes we had ordered, came with a strange order - one...

This was perhaps our worst experience in tbilisi in terms of food and service. The location is nice and is by the river. They did not have most of the items we were trying to order on our drinks menu. For food - the khachapuri was okay, but everything else we ordered was just too salty and not edible. Service... More

Good choice of Georgian food - very tasty. Nice setting including exterior riverside seating option. Staff not as welcoming as at other places but it's still worth a visit for the good. Also has free WiFi access.

We ate a very late lunch here, after a tough day of business meetings. Because it was late in the afternoon, we more or less had the place to ourselves, so the service was attentive and friendly. The food was good. The chacha was the best that I have tasted to date. We left for the airport in a good... More

If you don't mind second hand smoke (lots of it), noise and a long wait... you might find some enjoyment here. Otherwise, there are better places to dine. Our evening began with a loooooooooooong wait to order and even longer wait to receive a "substitute" wine selection. They were out of our first selection... it was a Friday night, not... More

The Old House is my usual choice for Georgian 'supras' with larger groups visiting Tbilisi. Central location (close to Dry Bridge Market), good food and service, reasonable prices and some folkloristic entertainment are among the reasons. Having said this, I would not go there for a romantic dinner for two.

The Old House is a standard for visits to Tbilisi, and both frequented by locals and tour agencies. They prepare a wide variety of excellent local food, and have very good local wine both open and by the bottle. The restaurant is located right by the river, so try to get a table on the upper deck if yo can.... More

On the plus side: a beautiful surrounding and excellent wine (or well, I never tried a bad wine in Georgia) On the down side: like many places in Tbilisi - staff aren't that service minded. Not rude, but we were the only guests and still didn't really get any attention. We only got 1 of 2 of the main dishes... More

The food is fine, the service is OK, and the location on the river is a plus. Still, there is little personality to the place, and it has a sterile feeling. Be sure to get a river view, though the river can have an aroma, depending on the season.

Close to the river, excellent music and food in a traditional looking restaurant. Ideal to sit outside on a warm evening.
