Typical Georgian food. Lots of it well cooked and interesting to one who has not had the chance to experience this before. Live music with a Georgian quartet for accompaniment. There is a balcony with spectacular views of the river in the gorge below.

We didn't book and they had a show on the night we went, so they let us have a private function room upstairs. The service was excellent, food delicious and family freindly. Thank you to our waiter Georgi!

One of their servers Natia, beautiful young lady. She was absolutely helpful from suggesting wine to helping me arrange a little birthday surprise for my lady. They have these beautiful traditional Georgian dance performances and... More

I would like to highlight the fact that I was only in the restaurant 10 min, the time it took us to ask if there was no other room with such a loud music. We have nothing to complain about as we booked a table (10pm), and I guess that's late for this restaurant, music was like in a disco... More
