24-hour service, a screeching violinist and (relatively) cheap and cheerful Georgian food, Maspindzelo (“the guest”) is a Tbilisi institution. Located across the river from Metekhi Church, just downstream from the baths, Maspindzelo has a winning mix of feasting birthday groups, date nights and bemused tourists. Featuring the classic Georgian dishes (khinkali dumplings, khachapuri cheese breads, mtsvadi kebabs with sour plum sauce), this is where you come if you want to eat like a local.
