The decor is simple yet elegant, the Russian-style brochette is divine and the customer service is second to none.
Georgian cuisine at its best.
Simple, elegant decor with a rustic touch is a good way to describe this restaurant at 18 Karavannaya Street (metro: Gostiny Dvor). It specialises in typical dishes from Georgia and the Caucasus region (the name of the restaurant actually means Caucasus). Kavkaz is a very friendly and homely place to eat, with dishes served on wooden platters and very generous portion sizes. Why not try the shashlik, which is a delicious Russian take on a brochette (the meat is marinated before being cooked). Dishes cost between 300 and 500 roubles (7-11 euros). The menu might be a little hard to understand as most tourists won't be familiar with the dishes, but the staff are excellent and will answer all your questions in English.
