Caravanisary: "Meat with a little meat on the side!" Baku Restaurant Tip by Ruai
Baku Restaurants: 31 reviews and 48 photos
This is located in an old Caravanisary beside the Maiden tower in the centre of the old town. The courtyard still has a well and around the courtyard are a series of private rooms decorated traditionally. Theres a band and I suspect dancers on occasions. Its all very picturesque (if a bit touristy). Theres also a gallery at the restaurant where you can chat up the charming artist as she tries to get you to buy a painting (very good but a little more than I'd intended to pay for dinner :-)
The service and food are very good although as everything is made fresh you should allow 45-50 minutes for it to come (This is a good general rule of thumb in Azerbaijan, especially outside Baku!)
Favorite Dish: They have a great meat dish which gives you a bit of everything they prepare (various kinds of Kebabs-Don't come to Azerbaijan if you're vegetarian :) Its too much for one but for a few its really nice.
PS If you are in a small place and don't want meat, they'll usually have good bread and really nice feta style cheese!
