MaLLina is located on busy Podol street and by default can not be a cozy place, I guess. And it is not. It looks like seasonal preparty summer place with karaoke/dj stage. Well, we had to wait forever while they tried to find our reserved table in their empty place. Then it took ages to bring our order. When salads arrived, it turned out that instead of parmesan they added simple Soviet cheese, and were not admitting it, until we asked to bring parmesan which they used, and it turned out to be different to cheese in salads. And all that coming with high prices. Hookah was excellent though. So not returning there ever.

supposed to be a trendy place, but failed to impress us. Rather unspectacular menu, terrace and service

Love the music here.. Thought the atmosphere would be much more stiff here, however I stand corrected. Although I must admit it was a school night when we walked in. Food is good. Price is OK.on the plus side they had shisha!!!

I read several enthusiastic reviews about this place but in reality I was not so pleased.
It's mostly for gilded youth: to make impression, to hang out and to spend money surplus without reflecting too much.

Advantages: nice summer terrace (but lot of mosquitos may get on your nerves), refined design and the raspberry aroma are quite attractive. Good hookah and a dj can help you to relax.

Disadvantages: the cuisine and the service is quite moderate: not bad but not something that you will remember. It is not a value for the money. Yes, Georgian wine is great, but it is great everywhere.
