One Michelin ⭐ restaurant that's fuses Japanese and French cuisine together.

The food was really good for the most part. There were a couple of the dishes that I didn't like, such as the ikura fennel and caramelized onion eel. Other than those ones, everything was really good with amazing presentation! Service was great as well and what you would expect of Japanese hospitality. They even gave us a dessert gift for our honeymoon and took an instant photo of our party ☺️

I'm not sure if the staff can speak English, but we got the translations of the food as we went with another Japanese couple. But I think foreigners who come may have trouble understanding the descriptions of the food.


Just had to share about the culinary journey I embarked on at Alchimiste! One of the first restaurants I booked for my Japan trip.

The recommendation came from an ex-Tattarang executive, who has been following Chef Kenichi Yamamoto's incredible journey from Paris to Japan.

One of the highlights? Tasting an artichoke grown on their very own farm - just be sure not to eat the raw one, as I was advised! 😉😄 The Jerusalem artichoke espuma was 👌

The magic of Alchimiste lies in Chef Kenichi's mastery of blending Japanese ingredients with French-style cuisine. Each dish, be it the Hokkaido Crab, Nagasaki bream, Iwate beef, or the Miyazaki mango, tasted like it was lovingly crafted from the heart ❤️

To elevate the experience, I opted for the cheese course featuring Japanese cheese and blue goat cheese. Makiko-san shared that the Japanese cheese came from a small producer. Creamy, delightful, and delicious!

Every bite was a celebration, leaving me feeling incredibly happy and grateful.

A huge shout-out to Makiko-san and Chef Kenichi for their warm hospitality. Despite being miles away from home, they made me feel like I was right at home.


My hearty congratulations on your moving onward and restarting new location in Shirogane-dai. You can also come from Meguro station on foot, it’ll take about 10–15min.

Currently they serve a fixed, seasonal course menu, also you can add drink pairing, it won’t be fixed and please ask their kindest staff anything about that!

Location size, the number of kitchen/service staff, everything has enhanced and expanded, but their generous style doesn’t change at all and Mr./Ms Yamamoto san (Chef and Madam) will always welcome you with a brightest smile.

Lastly, the new location has a beautiful private room, just for your information😉, enjoy!
