Frequented by diplomats from some of the nearby consulates, this small Georgian restaurant is a real find and a perfect place to unwind after a long day sightseeing. With an interior that harks back to Old Tbilisi, a comfortable mix of dark woods and bright wall decorations (some of which are for sale - ask the wait staff), Rustaveli manages to remain cool and dark on a hot sunny day, and warm and cozy in the middle of winter. We enjoyed all the usual Georgian favorites including khachapuri, lobio, lamb shashlik and - whisper it softly - even a glass of fine Georgian red wine, an almost impossible find since Russia banned imports in 2008. Bear in mind that Rustaveli is a cash only establishment, so don't get caught out as we did having to make a post-prandial run to the ATM!
