A stylish old-style French restaurant located in a prime location, a 3-minute walk from the Ohara bus stop.
The interior of the store is clean, spacious and relaxing.
I ordered a course for 8,800 yen at lunch time.
The restaurant features a flat kitchen where you can see the chef's hands from your seat, so you can enjoy watching the food being prepared.
The chef, who trained at a top-notch restaurant in France, prepared delicate dishes, and each dish, including the meat, fish, vegetables, and sweets, had a world-class taste.

The floor staff with bright smiles are said to be qualified as wine sommeliers. I couldn't drink alcohol this time, but next time I would like to enjoy the wine pairing with the sommelier's choice.

It was a luxurious time that filled both my stomach and my heart.


I went there alone for lunch.
At first, I was a little nervous, but it was so much fun and delicious to watch the food prepared right in front of me using local ingredients.

The gentleness of the couple was very nice.

Next time, I would like to go with my mother.

Thank you for the meal😄


It's in the great place.

A restaurant with a good atmosphere in Ohara. The combination of wood-grilled Rakuhoku venison and sauce was fantastic. The persimmon and cognac ice cream for dessert will be delicious even for people who don't like the taste and smell of alcohol. It was a great experience that gave me a lot of inspiration.

A cozy restaurant with a nice atmosphere in Ohara.
The deer steak and sauce combination was fantastic. The persimmon and cognac ice cream for dessert was so soft that even those who dislike the smell of alcohol would enjoy it. During the meal, I was able to hear detailed explanations and stories about wine and the Ohara region. It was a delicious meal, not only in terms of the food but also the story. I was touched by the sincerity with which they hand-written labels on dozens of bottles of wine and stored them. I'm getting a lot of good inspiration.
