Puri Guliani

Puri Guliani is a restaurant, cafe and bakery with loft-style interior, shaded patio with a view over the Mtkvari river. Great any time of day, it is particularly popular for brunch. Baked goods are on point: both savoury Adjarian khachapuri and buttery almond croissants. This cafe is kid-friendly and has a play area upstairs, so adults can have some time to unwind while the young ones are entertained.


Georgia has a longstanding culinary tradition, almost as old as the country itself. It is no wonder then that social dining (and drinking) holds a special position in Georgian culture, with traditional feasts (supra) being very important and ritualised. Leading a supra is always a tamada, toastmaster, whose role is to speak and propose toasts, until the feast is ended. Tbilisi offers a lot of restaurants serving local cuisine in accordance with Georgian tradition and it is not uncommon to stumble upon a typical feast with people toasting, singing and dancing.
