Description: It’s been ten years since we started sharing our best values of Caucasian hospitality, authentic taste and warm atmosphere. The taste is everything, and we have two head chefs working to its perfection day-to-day, Tristan Arabuli and Gurgen Sarafyan. Both of them have been here since the very opening, implementing their cooking styles into our concept. Gurgen is Armenian; he is in charge of the meat here. Thanks to him, our shashlik is always tender and juicy. Tristan takes care of the pastry - in his traditional and unique purnei oven delicious khachapuri (Georgian cheese pastry), flat breads and pies are made. Georgian food is always served with the finest wine. We did our best to collect the biggest Georgian wine collection in Kyiv and often host wine festivals to let every guest get insights of the great Georgian wine culture. We respect and maintain the traditions but we also gladly create them. Two years in a row our restaurant received Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator!

Very delicious dishes are here and huge selection of wine! And the atmosphere is so calm, because of a woodburning stove. Totally recommended if you want to experience georgian cuisine during your visit in Kyiv.

Nice place to visit for dinner when staying in Holiday Inn nearby.
Huge Georgian wine list, and brandy choice. Various menu with meat dishes accent which is natural for Georgia.
Food quality is great and don’t be greedy ordering too much - dish sizes are quite considerable.
Very reasonable price policy.
Cozy atmosphere and dim light, swift service.

This Restaurant sits in a tiny park between 2 main roads...But you do not notice the noise. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and very knowledgeable. It is not a huge menu, but does have a decent range of meals. However, the real charm is the style, and ambiance...in the evenings with the lights on it is magical and romantic. It has a wow factor and as I described it has real substance too with the quality of staff and food. The drinks were also fantastic, and we were recommended a semi sweet red to go with our lamb dishes...this was inspired, and it was actually one of the cheaper wines on their list. At the end of the evening we left this restaurant with a feeling of warmth and contentment, and of course romance.
