Samiktno / Machakhela is a restaurant chain located in Tbilisi, Republic of Georga. One of it's prominent restaurants is located at Meidan Square, just in the heart of Tbilisi Old Town offering breathtaking views towards Metekehi church (in front of which is located Vahtang Gorgasali statue).
This is one of the rare places in Georgia where you can get combos
We are proud, that we were among the first to bring to Georgian market so-called ”combos”. That is, combined portion dishes which are intended for one person and differ from the practice of delivering dishes to traditional Georgian feast, where food is shared by all members of the table. I would like to say, that the above-mentioned combos are very popular not only among local population, but among those numerous guests who come to our country.
Menu at this restaurant
Written in three languages - Georgian, English and Russian. This time we opted for some breakfast menu.
Views towards Metekhi church
Hmm.. I keep wondering, how one can climb up there (I have never been atop of that cliff, probably it is a great reason to try in near future). See Tourist attractions
Samikitno is distinguished with typical Tbilisian interior and all its restaurants are decorated with reproductions of Georgian painter Niko Pirosmani works.
European style breakfast menu
Yeah, nothing unseen here, best comes with very low price, just 5.5 Lari
Georgian style breakfast menu
Now, this is more interesting, The food is called Gomi, which consists from rice porridge in which Georgian Sulguni cheese is stacked + fried chicken leg. I have tried this just once - and actually it tastes damned good.
I Love Tbilisi sign at restaurant
The bottom line
This is a good, tourist friendly place, serving Georgian style food in European way. If you are looking for authentic Georgian cuisine, you will find it very softened here
