Accessible enough for day trips, allowing you to taste the fresh bounty of the Sea of Japan at a reasonable price. They have plentiful dishes, from set meals to don bowls, crab cuisine, sashimi, and a la carte items. It’s great for a pit stop during a drive, too.

    毎年家族旅行で土日に泊まっていたからでしょうか、たまたま平日に家族で泊まりに行きました。 仲居さんはご年配の女性が一人で接客しておりました。フレンドリーを履き違えた、図々しい物言いの方で、父はエレベーター内でいい体だとあちこち触られ、しまいには抱きつかれていました。 私は枕が変わると寝れないので、持参した枕を抱いていたら、『そんなもの抱かないで、赤ちゃんでも産んで抱っこしなさい』と言われ大変不快で...

    店内は新しく、綺麗です。 豆腐づくしの5000円のコースを頂きました。 豆腐を色々な形で楽しませてくれようとする気持ちは伝わるのですが、あともうちょっとで美味しくなるだろう、残念な結果に終わっているお品も…。 お子様プレートも頼みましたが、こども向けのはずなのにドレッシングがかなり生姜が効いて、見た目も地味な色合いで少し残念。 全体的に値段と内容のバランスが取れていないと感じました。
