Very beautiful and elegant petite cafe! One lady playing jazz classics on an upright piano whilst we had tasty cocktails. Would highly recommend!

The cafe has a very nice and unique atmosphere, with a comfortable space. Its a shame that the food and service did not have an according quality. The waitress seemed very annoyed when we asked her to explain some of the dishes, and she did not speak English or Russian. She mumbled some curse words in whatever language she spoke... More

The apartment that is an cafe, looks fantastic! If you don´t want to eat or drink, just go to see the place. The food was also great. Traditional Georgian food.

Been there twice, once for a quick coffee, and then for a breakfast with friends. Both times Linville amazed me with its stylish interior, sort of a crossover between grandma's home and a quirky museum of random stuff. Had a salad there and a turkish coffee, both were tasty, there is a fair choice of lunch food as well as... More

We found this place by pure chance: we were walking along Leselidze street, looked up and saw interesting lamp shade silhouette in one of the windows at the top floor of a building across. When you walk upstairs, don't panic, you are not drunk, their stairs are not straight, they are tilted :) We liked the place for its ambiance... More

The best place for a hot summer day, a glass of wine and talk quietly. Interior stunning. Like wild eclecticism, but each one goes well. Shabby walls, a samovar, an aquarium in the old TV. The kitchen does not cause orgasm, but rather quality.

If you haven’t been to Linville yet, you have to go! Immediately! Get your sunglasses on, a book and a pen and head to the loveliest, cozy little piece of magical world, full of classical Jazz and Blues. A glass of very dry, Tanqueray Martini, served straight up with a twist becomes an enchanting journey to the fairy world of... More

Charming, vintage decor, but allows smoking. (Most Georgians smoke.) But there is a small balcony. Enjoyed the food and service.

The place is for young people i guess. Definitely not for gourmands. It is also noisy and with no air conditioning. The smell of cigarette is disturbing. I have ordered chicken breast which at the end turned row :( I am very disappointed.

This old building looks like it is ready to fall down - the stairs already lean to one side. Located on the intersection of Kote Abkhazi ( the main artery into old town from Freedom Square) and Abesadze. Entry is via a painted metal door which will take you via a flight of stairs to the cafe / restaurant on... More
