Tbilisi is located in the valley of the river Mtkvari, which is considered the longest river in Georgia. The hills on both sides of this river create a stunning townscape enhanced by the nice old houses with balconies and roof tops. In this quarter of Tbilisi is located hotel “Kopala”. On its highest floor this hotel has one of the best restaurants in the city, which also bears the same name. The name Kopala comes from the ancient Georgian mythology. In Pagan times, Kopala was worshiped in the mountains of Caucasus. He was considered the Son of the God who fought against the mountain giants and helped the people. So here you really are in safe hands.
The restaurant has a lovely terrace, where you can sit and while having dinner enjoy the marvelous view over the illuminated old town and make beautiful photos. That’s unforgettable.
In the main hall of the restaurants there is a grand piano and every evening you can enjoy live classical music.
In Kopala you can eat Georgian or European, but I recommend you eat Georgian and try trout in pomegranate sauce or chicken in garlic sauce with a good Georgian white wine “Mtswane” that means Green. The restaurant is very popular and it’s better if you make a reservation in advance.
