The atmosphere is very warm and welcoming. We ordered a lot of cold starters and a Bilincik, which was a Russian crepe. The starters were very good. I ordered an Ostri which is a veal goulash. Excellent and warming dish, just needed some salt. Someone else ordered a Cakapuli, the lamb stew. The lamb was tender but the plum sauce was a little tart. Overall good food.

Traditional Georgian food served by the most wonderful hosts. We loved sharing the intimacy of the table perched in the bay window and chatting to the charismatic owner... what a place!

If you're lucky to (find) visit this architectural
town house, ring the doorbell
and wait until the owner comes down to
welcome you in six or seven languages he
speaks fluently.. More exciting than the
food & wine is the establishment and the
'young' elderly couple who are prominent town planners (Istanbul) with unequalled knowledge of local architecture and history.
They are passionate in whatever they do and this reflects in their menu as well as their music! Be ready for pleasant surprises.

This restaurant is in a historic Ottoman prison, charmingly renovated by the architect owners, who also serve you and, if you're lucky, serenade you with cabaret-style tunes for piano and voice. As a fancier of Georgian cuisine, I'd say the food is good but not amazing. Desserts are very good. Go for the atmosphere - like the home of your coolest friends. The place is a little hard to find at night and you have to ring the doorbell to gain admittance - a little adventure.
