Tbilisi, Georgia

About Poliphonia

Housed in a wonderful brick-vaulted sous-terrain, this atmospheric restaurant has a welcoming interior. It’s slightly off the tourist track – which has the benefit that it doesn’t get overwhelmed as easily as places like Vino Underground. Georgian dishes and flavours are the starting point (Khachapuri is highly recommended), but there are fusion touches too. You can choose to abandon the Georgian “everything on the table at once” concept and go with a multiple course tasting menu if you so wish.

The use of wild herbs, home-made fermented products and sweet-sour sauces adds a distinctive character to the dishes – many of which are vegetable-based. The name references Georgia’s famous polyphonic singing tradition, and if you’re lucky there might be music here too.

About the Poliphonia Wine List

Poliphonia specialises in traditional Georgian wines, and you can choose from many artisan producers (including some lesser known gems) – but additionally, it also has a great selection of natural wines from other parts of the world. If you feel like drinking Philippe Bornard’s delightful Jura wines, a Jean Foillard Côte de Py or an orange wine from Italy, then this is the place to come.
