This was our favorite restaurant in Tbilisi, and we researched and tried a lot of others. The quality of food is astounding, yet the vibe is unpretentious and the prices are totally down-to-earth. The staff were welcoming and helpful. The decor was really cool with old Soviet and Georgian paintings and posters all over the walls. But the highlight was of course the lobio (after all, the name of the restaurant means "Lobio place"). We've tried lobio at a few different places across Georgia, and each time it was the same clay pot bean stew – not bad, but nothing really special. Here, it was a magical explosion of taste and ideas. The stew itself was bustling with aromas of herbs and spices, and serving it with pickles including kimchi added a refreshing and innovative touch of fusion. We went here twice and sampled a few things on the menu, all of which showed interesting and unusual ideas surrounding simple Georgian home food, great attention to detail and exceptional quality of cooking. But lobio was not just amazing – it was a truly rapturous experience. Didn't think I would ever say that about what's basically stewed beans.
