Translated from Japanese:
A French restaurant with a good reputation.

You can enjoy French cuisine that is not formal, yet is like a work of art, prepared in a unique way.

Healthy food and excellent service.

The chef gives detailed explanations about each dish, and when you eat the French course at the counter, it's like watching a live show.

The cost performance is so good that I think it could be worth twice the price.

I wonder if it's a new form of fusion that goes beyond the framework of French, or perhaps I should call it Nouvelle Cuisine.

Anyway, it's so amazing that I can't express it in words.

We'll do it at a French restaurant that will definitely make you want to come back.


Translated from Japanese:
It was like spending a leisurely time listening to the artist's commentary at an art museum.
The course, which was made with attention to each ingredient and thought of the flow of time, was wonderful.
The highest quality caviar is moderately salty and melts smoothly in your mouth.
The squid dish using truffles was very rich and delicious with a strong egg taste and a collaboration of truffles and cheese.
In the venison dish, the meat was grilled over charcoal fires at a low temperature many times, and the meat was tender, yet still had the rich umami of venison.
For dessert, the mont blanc sweets made from fermented cacao are exquisite and unforgettable!
Every dish was delicious and it was a wonderful shop that impressed me.


Translated from Japanese:
We had dinner and pairing.
It was a dish with French, innovative, and Japanese elements.
The taste, the appearance, and above all, the aroma when you put the food in your mouth are wonderful, and you can enjoy it with all five senses.
I thought there was a store like this in Hiroshima.
It's worth more than the price.
The pairing of wine and sake was also a great match.
I would like to save money and visit again.
