10 Delightful Restaurants and Bars in Omotesando

Situated a short walk south-east of Meiji Jingu Shrine lies Omotesando and Aoyama. Rivaling Ginza in its dedication to high fashion, you may notice you are surrounded by boutiques, concept stores and global brands while strolling the streets.

  • But if you step off the main thoroughfare, away from the lamborghinis and haute couture, you will discover the reason why so many people come here in the evening, long after the boutiques have closed their doors.

    Full disclosure, the dining options are incredible. Along the myriad laneways and narrow streets lie some of the best restaurants in Tokyo, just waiting to be discovered.

    Specialising in Mediterranian cuisine, Cicada remains one of our favorite restaurants in the area due to its relaxed atmosphere, fine food, impeccable service, and comfortable open-air terrace.

    The extensive menu opens with hams, olive oil and dips, tapas, seafood, meats, and vegetarian options taking center stage. Cicada are most proud of their extensive wine list, offering artisanal, small batch wines from Spain, Italy and France. And as a part of the Tyson & Company, they also serve a range of quality craft beers brewed in Tokyo.

    The Tokyo Whisky Library, concealed in one of the backstreets behind Aoyama-dori Avenue, is one of Tokyo’s hidden gems and is a must-visit location for whisky lovers.

    Their whisky menu — 107 pages long — tells the backstory of whisky; from its origins in Scotland to its expansion to Japan, the United States, and then to the rest of the world.
