“nicely spent evening in Tbilisi”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

It was very nice restaurant, local decor and cuisine with good options as well for vegetarians. During the evening there was nice performance of local dances, songs in Georgian, Russian, English and French. It was quite noisy but between each dance or song there was a break when we could talk at the table - and when performance started we just had time to observe it as no other word could be heard. Overall it was very nice evening - not really expensive restaurant for the level of how it's perceived. We spent about 30 EUR per person. For sure I will be glad to come back.

“Good food, loud music”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

The roasted chicken in white wine sauce is a must. The place might look like a tourist trap, but the food is really good. The music entertainment made it hard to have a real conversation, though.

“Shadow of Metekhi restaurant”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

Good, mostly Georgian food, not tot pricey, plenty of choices on the menu. Old style décor and cosy atmosphere. Sometimes the live music/dancing is a bit loud but is not continuous (5-10 minutes between pieces) so there's plenty of time to chat.

“Great place, excellent food and service, splendid view”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

We've had lunch in this restaurant. Odjakhuri (meat and vegetables fried and served on the ceramic pan) was delicious, portions were huge and wine was just right. We asked for a table on the terrace with the view, and getting it was not a problem at all (although we were advised to make a reservation in case we would like to come for dinner)
Terrace view is amazing: Mtkvari river, Narikala fortress, Abanotubani district, Funicular, - all main sights of Tbilisi are right in front of you. One of the "must see" places of Tbilisi.
