I was so lazy to come here and write review but i had to. NEVER go there. Most tasteless food. I was so hungry and they made me lose my appetite. Btw I am Georgian and I know how Georgian food should taste.

Big portions, reasonably priced, fine service, varied menu with pictores - you can taste traditional georgian food. What is important, our waiter spoke quite good English, which I didn't find very common in Tbilisi.

Location is very convenient. I ordered cheese "Imeruli" but waiter brought Sulguni, which was terrible also. Salad was not good. Pork barbecue was normal but very small pieces. Only liked local craft beer.
