Legvi means fig in Georgian, and the area where this bar and café is located is called Leghtakhevi for the once abundance of fig trees. It is one of the oldest areas of Tbilisi, at the end of the sulfur bath area, which was renovated in 2012. Legvi has a large beautiful terrace that looks out over the stream that feeds the sulfur baths, framed by brightly colored restored buildings with classic Tbilisi balconies.
Legvi’s menu offers traditional Georgian flavors with a hint of innovation – good, if a bit pricey. The café’s real strength is its location and views. It’s the perfect place to end an evening stroll through Old Tbilisi, sitting outside with a glass of wine and a cheese plate, enjoying the sounds of frogs croaking and the stream bubbling below. The dessert menu is also worth a glance!
