This is a stylish restaurant in the centre of Zugdidi serving local specialties which are well executed and with generous portions. The owner speaks excellent English and offers good advice on what to try and what to drink. The prices are reasonable. All in all...a good place to become acquainted with dishes from Megrelia and Abkhazia such as Kharcho, Kupati and Gebjalia.More

We had dinner in El Barco two times, and both of them were amazing. Sazivi (chicken with walnut sauce) and other dishes are really delicious, and the staff, especially the owner, is very friendly.
