Situated along the picturesque Sai River in the heart of Kanazawa's Katamachi district, Griller Joe provides a charming and inviting atmosphere where guests can savor the flavors of grilled dishes.

Amazing chefs, great food presentation, enough English to order without any problem


During my trip to Kanazawa, I looked for a restaurant where I could enjoy meat and alcohol, and I ate here. I chose it by looking at the menu rather than the course. All the dishes were delicious and we thoroughly enjoyed the meal with the wine. When the food came out, he explained it carefully. The grilled meat platter was exquisite and had a taste that made me want to come again. The appetizer platter was made with local ingredients. The avocado dip was also original and good. We ordered glasses of champagne, wine, and dessert, and had a full course meal. The price was great even though I had so much food and drink♡. I think I'll be traveling to Kanazawa again next year to visit this shop.


The interior of the restaurant, which has been renovated from a Japanese restaurant, is a stylish and calming atmosphere with a good mix of Japanese and Western styles. The meat was extremely delicious and I enjoyed the alcohol as well.

Among the many fashionable shops, I went to Griejo to celebrate! This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend, so it was my dream! The menu had a lot of options from appetizers to fish and meat, so I was having a hard time choosing...


Translated from Japanese:

It's been a while since I last visited the restaurant, but the atmosphere was nice and the appetizers were amazing.The seasoning of the scallops made me want to come back just for this, and the cookedness of the meat matched my tastes.I had a great time.The sangria was delicious as well. ...


Translated from Japanese:

I visited here about 10 years ago. It's one of the few restaurants where you can enjoy delicious food with ingredients you're not good at. That memory remained deep in my heart, never to be forgotten. I visited Griejo for the first time in a while. ...
