I’ve meant to write this for a while but recently (a year later) we reminisced about how good this meal was. I asked for a special table for my husbands birthday and got a little secluded table which was perfect. The atmosphere Was incredible. The...More

As the title reads, I personally don't know another restaurant in Georgia that comes close to this quality standard. Let me explain why with an example. Take the newish dish of the restaurant's seasonal menu — Lentil Balls. The richness of the lentil perfectly offsets...More

Have been trying to go to Barbarestan for some time, and now I finally made it. It was truly worth waiting for. The service was excellent, with entertaining story telling about the restaurant, and the food was delicious. Over-eating is a common problem in Georgia...More

The service, the story, the food was absolutely on point. The restaurant deserves to be on the Michelin Guide for sure. The host was fantastic, after the meal he showed us the cellar and explained the history. This place is an absolute gem.
