Delicious! - Edit

Very good restaurant, that is ideal to get to know Georgian food, as they have an English menu that indicates which dishes are vegan or can be made vegan, and the staff speak very good English and can explain everything to you.

The ambiance is really special, with much attention to detail. You can even sit in the old wine cellar! So it is the perfect place to spend an enjoyable evening!

The food is excellent. We had a selection of different starters, which all tasted very good, salad and lobiani (a pita bread filled with bean puree) and the mushroom khinkali (Georgian dumplings). All recipes are recipes from an 19th century cookbook.

For Georgia, this is a very expensive place, but well worth it. When you are used to Western European prices, you will find it cheap.

Georgia is a great place for vegans. Many Georgians are very religious, and the Georgian-orthodox church has very strict fasting rules. During fasting times people should not eat any meat, eggs and dairy. And there are many fasting occasions per year, e.g. every Wednesday and Friday, before Easter, before Christmas, when someone has died…. So it is very easy to get vegan food in every restaurant that offers Georgian cuisine, not only in the places listed on Happy Cow. Many dishes rely on grounded walnuts instead of cream. Popular vegan dishes are ajapsandali (stewed vegetables, mostly eggplant), sweet peppers or eggplant with walnuts and spices (badridjani nigvzit), lobio (spicy beans). Mushroom dishes are also very common, salads are always on offer (tomato and cucumber, beetroot…). Georgians use lots of herbs and spices, so that even seemingly simple salads and vegetable dishes taste great!

Pros: Great atmosphere, Great food, Helpfull staff

Cons: Expensive
