    17年前ほどから何年もに渡り毎年越前カニ解禁になった時に伺っていました。結婚してから遠のき、ここ数年の間に2、3回伺いました。 率直な感想は、昔の料理の方がよかった。昔はいつも大満足な料理で帰宅していましたが、今は高いけど、量も質もさほどでない。 受付のオーナー?女将さん?は昔から愛想はないです。 しかし最後に訪れた際は、若旦那?が最初に顔をだし無愛想。奥へ入り、『誰かきたぞー』の一言。 ビックリ...

    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。
