Art Villa

Reviewed By SvetMil - Moscow, Russia

I remember this house in 80th years when I was on field geophysical works in Bakuriani area - it was real old Nest of nice Georgian family. In the present time you can see renovated home with really warm atmosphere and unique Georgian hospitality and care. I strongly recommend Art Villa for stay in Bakuriani village in winter time for Alpine skiing and other winter pleasure as well in summer time when temperature in Tbilisi is really hot but very comfortable in Bakuriani due to high elevation about 2000 meters above see level. You can visit historical interesting places around Bakuriani - Borjomi Valley(with Borjomy spring water), Alalchihe Castle, Vardzia Cave Monastery built in 12th century and enjoy with fantastic fresh air and nature around Bakuriani. Don't miss Kukushka local train between Bogjomi and Bakuriani. Last time I stay in Art Villa with my daughter in summer 2008 and was briefly on October 2014

Old Borjomi

Reviewed By Randall K - Canberra, Australia

We had a very long day exploring this part of Georgia, so it was quite late in the afternoon by the time we stopped for lunch/dinner (it was about 1700). Our driver recommended this place. We were very hungry so we tended to order too much. The soup was delicious, so were the khinkali and khachapuri! The place was not too busy at this time of day. Service was very friendly. We had 1 woman light up a cigarette near us, but the 3 of us stared at her so she walked outside to smoke it.

The Bagrationi Restaurant

Food is nothing like Georgian, not even close. Everything was tasteless. Staff is very poor trained. We had there anniversary dinner and it was disappointing accept the wine and the view.

Pesvebi

Reviewed By JGDynamo - Halifax Region, Canada

A skip hop and a jump away from our hotel we tried out Pesvebi for lunch one day recently. It has an inviting atmosphere, service and menu available in English (we tried out the words and phrases we had learned in Georgian and got some laughs). The food is fresh and delicious, the kinkhali was 100times better than another we had experienced earlier in our trip, the feeling is very authentic and sincere, pricing is quite reasonable and again the staff were all excellent. Highly recommend, two thumbs up, 5 stars all of those ratings apply here! Thanks for a great dining experience!

Restaurant Mimino

Reviewed By Yaroslav S

Well the whole restaurant is smells like a smoking room because smoking is allowed and lot's of people do this. This problem is widely spread in Georgia.
Service is ok but I come to restaurants for food and here's the main problem. I travelled all over Georgia and can say that food here is very average. A place 50m away, not shown on TA has much better choice and quality.

Old Pub

Reviewed By LiaSdiLuna - Tbilisi, Georgia

I wish I could take back ever eating here but I had read a review on here saying it was okay. So! There was a mason breaking bricks and scraping concrete through the meal. Some kind of dinnertime construction in plain view. There was a nature program on the tv of animals attacked and bleeding and otherwise dying. I had to turn my chair around and basically couldn't sit at the table normally. The mushroom dumplings were empty. See photo. The potato ones were totally bland. The eggplant with walnuts was too salty to eat and a few herbs and spices missing. The khachapuri was empty. See photo. We were overcharged for our beers. It was a waste of time and put me in the worst mood ever. SKIP IT.

Tavern Mari

Reviewed By avdeeva_elena - Rostov-on-Don, Russia

Уютный зал, когда мы только пришли, людей было немного, но не сказала бы, что как то нас радушно встретили. Никто ничего не советовал, как в предыдущих отзывах, мы заказали, что знали. Вся еда была хорошая, но особо я бы этот ресторан не выделила. Можно покушать.

Bergi

Reviewed By Marie F

The tourist information center suggested us Bergi. Once there, we were spoken in French by the waiter and he adviced us some local typical food. Fried chicken cooked with garlic and cream was DELICIOUS :-) they also serve breakfasts which we tried the following day without any disapointement. We highly recommend Bergi !

Cafe Tourist

Reviewed By Vegotraveller - Borjomi, Georgia

This small scale restaurant offers really good Georgian home made food! We ordered vegetarian dolmas, aubergine rolls, fried potatoes and corn bread and it was all delicious! Best we have eaten so far in Georgia! The owners are very friendly. Lots of personal decorations inside the restaurant, not for those who like it minimalistic. It's like visiting somebody's home for dinner.
