    Toma's Wine Cellar

    Becoming a Kutaisi essential in just a couple of years, Toma's offers you the chance to dine on traditional home-cooked foods that you'll be unlikely to find in most restaurants. The set meal is enormous, and includes Toma's delicious homemade wine and dishes such as jonjoli (pickled wildflowers) and gebzhalia (cottage cheese in mint and sour cream). Reservations essential.

    Palaty

    Live piano music, pleasant low lighting and a semi-bohemian ambience make Palaty a top spot in Kutaisi. The menu includes several departures from the norm, such as the huge board (90 GEL) featuring a dozen different local specialities. If you don't fancy regional Georgian dishes, there are also pizzas and pasta available.

    Agerari

    This pleasant two-floor space with an open kitchen on the ground floor serves a varied and tasty range of Georgian dishes just off Kutaisi's central square. The khinkali (meat dumpling) and kebabs are excellent, as is the chikhirtma (chicken and garlic soup) and the local beer on tap.

    Sesame

    With its exposed brick, tiled bar and filament bulbs, Sesame is about as hip as Kutaisi gets. The menu is refreshingly original too, with lots of non-Georgian choice including dishes such as fajitas, chicken Kiev and beef steak with pesto, and a decent wine list. Service is swift and efficient.

    An ideal spot for a drink or a snack after visiting next-door Bagrati Cathedral, Our Garden is a real charmer, with a gorgeous terrace giving great views of the city below, a tasty menu of Georgian home cooking and a rather stylish dining room stuffed full of local paintings.
