I hesitate only slightly to recommend this place as I would HATE it if it became popular. Acho and his family are amazing. Great ambiance - great wine and gorgeous Georgian food. Go in a heart beat!

Amazing interior of a beautiful restaurant, filled with antique dishes and furniture from the owner's family. The staff were so kind, giving us different wines to try on the house. A really beautiful place with lots of care in every detail, and wonderful food.

If you love traditional Georgian food and wine, this place is for you. Here you can taste very delicious food. Service is excellent. I can’t don’t mention very good piano player and so pleasant music.

But, be careful. There isn’t POS Terminal in the restaurant.

We stopped in at this restaurant precisely because it was near the opera. It was disappointing. The service was good but that was not surprising as there was only one other couple in the place. There was a piano player who provided very pleasant dinner music.
The food? Acceptable salad and spinach and cheese pie appetizer but the main course, sold to us as the seasonal specialty, was not very good. The taste was ok but the beef was tough and gristly. It was hard to cut through and identifying what was fat, what was gristle and what was actual meat was difficult because of the dark coloured gluey sauce.
To top it all off the cost was the most we paid for a meal after a week in Tbilisi.
The restaurant itself is beautiful. Maybe we just caught them on a bad day.
