Lonely Planet review
Often cited as the city’s most authentic Georgian restaurant, this place has fantastic Caucasian dishes, especially the khachapuri (cheese bread) topped with a fried egg. The dining room evokes the Caucasian countryside, with grape vines hanging from the ceiling and a huge stone fireplace. If you’re short of time (or cash), the same food is available ready-made at the cafe just around the corner – at a fraction of the cost. There is another outlet in Presnya.
