Food scene in Isani-Samgori

Cocktail Bar
$$
“The ride up Mtatsminda on the recently reconstructed Funicular is spectacular, as are the views from the top – and the Funicular Complex restaurant building has a couple of great places to eat or drink. It's also usually several degrees cooler up here than in the city below, which can be very welcome in the heat of summer.”

“ This urban-style café-bar is a relatively new addition to Tbilisi’s dining scene. With beautiful music, a good vibe, and an open kitchen, Lolita is an exciting place that locals have come to love. Come and sit outside, sip on some Georgian wine and observe how chefs prepare your meal right in front of your eyes”

“A family owned restaurant “Barbarestan” on Marjanishvili Street, Tbilisi. The restaurant offers Georgian dishes cooked in accordance with the recipes in the 1914 cookery book by feminist writer, poet and chef, Barbare Eristavi-Jorjadze.”

“ Keto and Kote, popular names of Georgian literature and cinema, are as inseparable in language as fish and lemon, cornbread and cheese, bread and butter, and so it will come as no surprise to experience just that harmony here- in taste and style. Chef Ramaz Gemiashvili is well-known in the field of Georgian gaonomy, having made literary cafes a standard for those born and brought up in Tbilisi. We recommend his Roquefort and hot pepper sauce on meat, and bright pesto sauce on khinkali. The perfect selection of wine, a beautiful garden-terrace, an interesting interior and modern Tbilisi spread out below you, and then there are the desserts…”

Caucasian Restaurant

“n the Caucasus, guests are considered gifts from God. Georgians like to call them okros stumrebi – “golden guests” – an endearment that illustrates the stature the ever-hospitable Georgians give to those they host. The cellar restaurant is an homage to Georgia’s favorite artist, Niko Pirosmani, a naive painter whose favorite subjects were animals, a singer named Margarita and feast scenes. The flea-market furniture, tablecloths and china make the Black Lion an ideal setting for anybody hankering to create a one-of-a-kind, laid-back feast scene of his own, with hearty original takes on traditional Georgian cooking.fusion as it is a kind of “refrigerator surprise,” a culinary brainstorm of ingredients and ideas in which Gubeladze and her cooks, who offer their own regional favorite dishes, end up inventing completely new recipes.”

Café

“ This cafe is a marvelous case of multifaceted expression of one's talent. Rezo Gabriadze, famous Georgian screenwriter, painter, sculptor and puppeteer, made all the details of his cafe by himself, investing not just his time and talent, but also his soul in it. And this is the thing you feel. The prices are above average, but cafe is usually full”

“Café Gallery is popular for its friendly atmosphere that helps people meet each other. In spite of its small capacity – main room contains little more than a dance floor with space for less than a two hundred people – it hosts credible house and techno act like Daniel Bell, Tama Sumo, Boo Williams, Lakuti etc. Launched in 2015, Didi Gallery (owned by the same people) offers credible house and techno acts – from Detroit’s Derrick May and Kenny Larkin to Berlin’s Ellen Allien.”

“Ezo is more than an organic food restaurant in the making; it is part of a larger scheme to develop sustainable organic farming in Georgia. The waitstaff are not so much employees as they are friends who share the same vision of serving simple, quality natural dishes to their customers. Next year, Ezo’s Sololaki courtyard will host a weekly organic farmers market.”

“Cafe Stamba is where the industrial chic aesthetic shines brightest. A menu of modern comfort food makes an easy segue between Georgian and international cuisines with expertly crafted cocktails on offer at the adjacent Pink Bar,bounded by an outdoor terrace. One can also enjoy a charming Chocolaterie and Roastery presenting a selection of high quality artisanal chocolate made in-house and coffee.”
