“Great food”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

It was the first time I went there since the restaurant (re-)opened. I had to go there twice because the food was so good. The view is excellent and a heating system enables you to sit somewhat comfortable outside even if it is a bit colder.

“Spectacular view, average food”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

This restaurant has the best view over Tbilisi. Come here at night and you will be stunned. We were lucky to have a great live jazz performance too. The food is mainly Georgian, and overpriced in my opinion. We had a very tasty salted quail, but all the rest was disappointing, especially the chocolate mousse which was terrible. Apparently, Georgian restaurants are very bad in pastry. The pastry place downstairs is quite bad too. But the service was great.

“Bad service ”
Reviewed April 17, 2014 via mobile

We wait more then 40 minute for a dish, the management didn't agree to cancel it, the taste was average and they took tip without our agreement.

“Today's meniu: Glass of wine and spicy view of Tbilisi”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

Trip to Funicular was well deserved from our side. We took a trip to this place by walk and even when we reached the top and felt funny - we've been the winners, and Chela waitress gave as an award. Finally a good English, lovely wine and some food. Sadly some, but it's the truth. Places like this needs extra, but beeing a turist it's for sure a place to visit, even not for food...
In the end of the day, if u need to compare, it probbably gonna be a place where I'm gonna come back...

“Slow ride up Slow ride down”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

Must try it at night as you slowly reach the top of the funicular and are ready to fully enjoy the view of Tbilisi's night lights as you witness the woods and fancy villas as the train climbs up. Once on top can enjoy one of the cafes and amazing views on the city. Its a must. (Sometimes there may be electricity cuts)
