Well, you know it's likely good if locals are there. You need to make a reservation on weekend nights as it can be popular. The food is pretty good - the only thing that wasn't good was the lamb grilled on a skewer (flavor was ok but it was too dry/tough). They have a nice wine selection too. While the singing is a little loud, this seems to be the norm in Georgian restaurants. The dancing is fun to watch. They have wonderful balcony seating in warmer weather. The views of the river, fortress, and Metekhi church are excellent. Overall, an enjoyable dining experience.

This is the place to come and taste Georgian traditional dishes. The restaurant has fantastic views to the old town and the river Mtkvari as it stands over the cliff on the river. Several days a week, the restaurant offers performances of traditional Georgian fold dances.

Great food. Amazing view overlooking the river. May even be lucky enough to stumble on a Georgian wedding party.

We were invited in this restaurant by our georgian friends and were very impressed. The table was overladen with delicious food. On the stage appeared different dancers and singers, but all of them were really amazing.

P.S. I'd like to apologize to the restaurant: I suppose our georgian friends felt a bit tipsy after so many glasses of wine. Apparantly that's why they started to throw at each other a cake:) I'm really sorry for making dirty all over the restaurant..:)
