Tbilisi Food Guide: The Best Restaurants in Tbilisi


You should definitely visit Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, and the pearl of the Caucasus, to add a different dimension to your travel experiences so far. The sprouts growing in these fertile lands fed by the Kura River will give you a completely different taste. All the ingredients, herbs, and spices which are growing in these lands are natural. To be honest, on my trip to Tbilisi, the main highlight for me was the food. Surely, some of the best restaurants in the country are located in Tbilisi.

So where should you try these delicious tastes in Tbilisi? The best restaurants in Tbilisi that you must visit are as follows:

Café Littera

Café Littera offers an excellent garden behind the 120-year-old Georgia Writers House building. Even though the prices are slightly above normal, the experience is worth everything 😉 However, Cafe Littera is closed till Spring.

Shavi Lomi

Imagine a Georgian house with a huge garden, which is a little hard to find in the back streets of the new city. At first, you say we came wrong, but when you open the door, you are shocked by the wonderful ambiance that appears before you. The decoration of the house and the originality of the plates on which the food service is served, almost open the doors for another experiment in Shavi Lomi.

Sofia Melnikova’s Fantastic Douqan

It can be preferred for dinner in the summer and spring evenings. With its large garden and shabby seating arrangement under the vine leaves, you feel like a guest, not a customer in Sofia Melnikova’s Fantastic Douqan. The place is a bit hidden so it is useful to use the navigation, especially at nights.

If you are the one who travels specifically to experience local cuisine, Georgia is highly recommended.
