    ランチを食べました。酸味が効いた赤カブのソースがかかったサラダが新鮮で大変美味しかったです。駐車場もあります。すぐに満席になりそうな感じでしたので、予約を入れた方が良いと思います。川沿いの裏道から行くと、途中狭いところがあるので、琵琶湖大橋側から行く方が良いです。

    びわ湖大津館イングリッシュガーデンで満開の薔薇を堪能した後は、こちらのレストランでお食事‼️ 窓の外には満開の薔薇が見えて、優雅なランチタイムです。 お料理はどれも手の込んだものばかりです。 ソースにも工夫が凝らされ、お皿が綺麗になるほど残さずいただきました。 コース料理をオーダーしましたが、ボリューム満点で大満足‼️食べきれないかと心配になりましたが、あまりに美味しくて残せず完食しました。

    何年振りに訪問しました。以前とメニューが若干変更されたようでしたが、お店の雰囲気もよく、美味しくいただくことができました。コースメニューとは別に牛肉の握り寿司を追加注文しました。この日はサーロインの握りだったこともあり、とても美味しかったです。ご飯は釜戸で炊いたごはんなので、ついついお替わりをしてしまいました。 他府県からのお客さんをお連れするのもいいお店かもしれませんね。

Shiga Areas

around-area-map

Visitors to Shiga prefecture are almost always hopping east across the prefectural border from Kyoto, and they are almost certainly Lake Biwa-bound. Covering an area of 670 square kilometers, Lake Biwa makes up the bulk of Shiga prefecture, with beautiful lakeside paths that offer myriad walking and cycling opportunities, connecting a string of museums, shrines, and picturesque views that finally lead you to Hikone Castle on the eastern side of the lake.
