A brainchild of famous Georgian film director Rezo Gabriadze, this is much more than just another Caucasian restaurant. It faces the charming Aptekarsky Ogorod gardens for starters, and the interior design – mixing naive art with antiques brought from Georgia – is superb. Food is a mixture of Georgian and European. To avoid disapointment, stick to the former.

Also adding to the awesome atmosphere is the live music – mostly piano and some other jazzy ensembles – that plays every night.
