Funicular, Tbilisi Reviews

  • Great viewpoint connected to the city by a funicular where you can appreciate sweeping views of the entire city from one of its highest points. Up there you'll find an open plaza with a very nice restaurant offering an ample selection of Georgian dishes.

  • Getting on the train is pretty chaotic - there was only the one ticket booth selling & the queue was a few hundred people long. Same thing as you finally get on the train - fend for yourself. The trip only costs 2L, but you have to buy a card to swipe as well. Once you get to the to there's a great view of Tbilisi. Quite a few different food options, but none up to the quality you will get in the restaurants in town. We didn't go on any rides in the fun park, but the kids seemed to be having fun

  • Were were there at the new year evening with friends. Our reservation was not as we wanted. They put us the same table with other old age group guests. When we asked to change they didn't do anything. And we went back in a disappointed mood in such a nice day which we were planning to have fun. And they didn't refund our 300$! Can you imagine?? Service and customer satisfaction is zero ib this place. Not recommended. Don't waste your time there. There are lots of restaurants at the city worth to go.

  • Charming place with an excellent view of the city. You can get there by bus or by funicular. There is a Cafe and a restaurant on the ground floor on the the hill. The price in the restaurant is average around the city. Must visit. You can also see the illuminated Tbilisi at night. Splendid!

  • Good ambience. Ok food. Touristy. Maybe worth the hype. Yesterday my friend’s dish was really bad and rubbery. But he didn’t complain. So I don’t know. Quite friendly staff too.
