Hidden on a quaint pedestrian street, this charming, family-run restaurant serves authentic, home-style Georgian cuisine. The food is rustic, hearty, and intricately spiced with complex sauces, laced with finely ground walnuts and herbs. The menu ranges from dumpling-filled soups to hefty meat pies and rich lamb stews that are especially great in winter. But an absolute must is khachapuri, a cheese-and-egg puff-pastry dish that’s rich, delicate, and made on the spot. With a soup and salad, a khachapuri is a good choice for a lighter meal or lunch. There’s an outdoor terrace for summer dining.
