Food quite ordinary, not to say that is not tasty, but not exquisite. We ate in Tbilisi is much tastier and more spiritual places. Eggplants were raw in the original plate of snacks. The liver stewed in wine rubber. Wine card is not present, the meager selection of wines. Of the visitors only tourists.

This restaurant has changed the address and changed the quality of food. I have to admit that it is way better now. We have ordered two kind of fish that was very well prepared. Unfortunately the rice that was served was over cooked and not tasty. Their chacha was also not good. Hope that they will improve.

Shavi Lomi (Black Lion) is now at 28 Kvlividze Street, in a residential neighborhood on the Left Bank. There is little to tell the first time go-er that there is a restaurant inside the converted house - just a small spray painted black lion to the right of the double doors (no sign or any other indication). Go ahead on... More

Shavi Lomi has recently relocated to Plekhanov/Vorontsov district. The menu is the same, the new place is very cosy and nice, with yard and veranda. Service is good and the food very delicious. Pricing very moderate. Overall this place is a must for Tbilisi visitors to experience modern Georgian cuisine in a very cosy atmosphere.

We were excited to dine at the Black Lion today and got there via a city bus. We were met with a note on the lion mural (see picture) that they have relocated to a new spot. Three stars were given because we met someone associated with the restaurant and he said the new location was not open yet. He... More

Ate here for dinner on two occasions in late October on the recommendation of a Georgian friend. In a quiet part of the town which made a nice change and partially hidden away in a basement location (but easy to find). Large black lion motif is a give away for the location. Only 8 (?) tables for 4 - 6... More

I loved the place. It's more pricey than usual Tbilisi restaurants but their gobi was good and especially the main course was something I had never tasted (I tried the chicken in walnut and curry sauce)
