Kopala Hotel Tbilisi Reviews
Kopala Hotel Restaurant Mar 24, 2013
Since this restaurant highly recommend by lonely planet guide book, so we head there for lunch and relaxation after day sightseeing. First, we couldn’t find the hotel as the location is up the hill and walk to the end of the alleyway and we walk back and forth for third time before we finally find the hotel and ask direction from a couple of people. In this case, lonely planet guide book is useless and the map gives wrong direction. I am not sure if the person who wrote this review even eats in this restaurant.
The restaurant is a bit quite only a couple of table having lunch (probably it was late, around 3pm). After we seated for more than five or ten minutes and waiting for the menu, nobody come to offer the drink or menu. We keep glancing toward the reception area and I was tempted to walk there and ask for the menu. Finally the waiter come with the menu and still didn’t offer any drink. We discuss and check the vocabulary from the menu with the lonely planet guide book and finally settle on the food. Btw, the price in this restaurant is high than other restaurant similar to this, but still cheap compare with western country or Denmark.
First entrée arrive which is roast mushroom with cheese with Georgian herb. Taste was good and the serving was big. I ordered “Ojakhuri” which is pork with spices, onion, potatoes and tomatoes. Taste also good and this time I was full and unable to eat dessert and this is lunch only and in a couple of hours I will have dinner. So I opt to stop there and just enjoy the view. We also have Georgian bread which I like, taste a bit chewy and sweet. The view from the restaurant is good, we can see the Old Metheki church, the river and pedestrian crossing, it is very relaxing.
Unfortunately for this kind of hotel, the service is a bit lacking. As it takes time for the waiter to gives the menu and they forgot about our bread which we requested a a couple of times after our mains were served.
