Funicular, Tbilisi

(1,200+ reviews on the web)
Lookout
Built as an attraction and to enable people to take in the wide vista atop the Mtatsminda plateau, Funicular opened in 1905. This steep railway climbs above the city, allowing 360-degree views through the all-glass exterior. You'll appreciate the new carriages installed in 2012 that replaced older, more rickety cars. At the top, take in a view of the city, visit the restaurant complex, and head up to the amusement park that dominates the plateau for fun and adventure. Plan your visit to Funicular and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Tbilisi itinerary builder.

  • Great meal atop the mountain. Gorgeous views of Tbilisi from the restaurant, as well. Highly recommend a visit here
  • Magical view. Happy place. You cant help but smiling when you are up there. The air is so fresh.
  • Good staff. Good food and good selection of wines. On top of that the view is breathtaking.
  • The place is located in the end station of Mtatsminda Funicular, so before it you can see the picturesque view to the city, which is breathtaking in any time of the day and late evening. Dishes in the restaurant are tasty and served very well, staff is experienced and friendly. Unfortunately there is a problem with ventilation, so cigarette smoke is everywhere.
  • We gathered here for "Great Gatsby" corporative party. The atmosphere, decoration, live music and food were terrific. So much attention to the details! I especially liked that old-style photo machine, which gave you instant printed photos and/or you could upload them directly onto Facebook.
