French cuisine using seasonal Japanese ingredients that speaks to the wonders of the four seasons ◆ A high-quality space with a natural taste

[jinen.] is located in Nanpeidai-cho, Shibuya Ward, and has its origins in "nature." We offer French cuisine that brings out the true flavor of the ingredients to the fullest. The person in charge of the kitchen is Masamasu Kato, who honed his sensibilities in Sapporo, Copenhagen, and Kagurazaka. We offer a chef's choice course consisting of around 12 dishes. Enjoy the seasonal flavors with monthly dishes. The interior of the store is a high-quality relaxing space filled with the warmth of wood. From everyday meals to special occasions, enjoy a relaxing moment with your loved ones.

I used it at a dinner party, and the specialty cauliflower changed my concept.

The location is easy to get to in Shibuya and I would like to use it again and again in the future.


A nice restaurant in a quiet location, and a rich French cuisine prepared by a chef from Hokkaido. The ingredients are varied, and the cooking methods and presentations are always surprising. It's worth going even from far away.


※Note! If you enter the store's location on Google Maps, ``6-7 Nanpeidai-cho, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo,'' the location 6-6 will be displayed for some reason!
So when searching on Google Maps,
We recommend searching for "Jinendot."
*There is a smoking area (paper cigarettes allowed) at the entrance of the store premises.

My first visit was in July 2023 after being invited by a fellow manager.
A regular customer rented out the restaurant for us.

The location is in Minamipeidai, Shibuya Ward, and it's about a walking distance from the station by train, so I don't think it's very easy to access.
Perhaps because the store doesn't have a big signboard, a few people walked past the store while waiting for other members on the premises lol.

And the atmosphere inside the premises is quite good.
“You’re going to let me eat something delicious from now on, right?”
It makes me feel. There is no basis for it lol

They will store your luggage for you before you take your seat.
The inside of the store has a calm feel and the view of the garden is great. *Please see other review photos 😅

I was checking with the staff to see if there were any ingredients that I didn't like, but maybe it's because I'm a top-class restaurant or because I didn't take notes, but my neighbor said she doesn't like mayonnaise, but I ended up with tartar sauce. I was offered one that was covered, and the clerk asked me to remove it.

All the food is delicious.
However, there is no menu so I don't really know what I ate.
It was explained to me, but I don't remember it.
Since you can't clearly identify the ingredients, it's like eating blindfolded.
*Please leave a menu for each person.

But it's delicious anyway. And quite a bit.
“I want to eat delicious Western food.”
When you think that, you can't go wrong if you come to this store.

I wrote this for a long time, but it was really delicious.
Please come and visit us again.
Thank you for the meal!
