Both Japanese and Western dishes are OK.
The shop is small, but the menu is abundant, and whatever you eat is delicious and reasonably priced.
You can choose a few brands of sake, and you will end up drinking too much.
Finally, a dessert of shortcake is served at the service.
it was fun.


This is a shop where you can do anything Japanese or Western style! I like this restaurant because it's really delicious and the host is kind.
Especially the sashimi (very fresh), ahijo (full of garlic), eggplant gratin with mitt sauce (I want to know the secret of the sauce), and seafood Neapolitan (this is Neapolitan)☺️
As for the dessert in the photo, there will be homemade dessert and tea at the end, so look forward to that too❗️


Tonight, a friend hosted a meal here. The boss and his wife served the meal for two people. The meal was very delicious, with fresh ingredients and the chef's combination. Each dish was unique!
