Reviewed:2018/06/04 Trendy local restaurant
Good selection of decent pub food. Awesome craft beers.
Good music, atmosphere and service.
Menu not huge but quality was great and meals were a big size
Reviewed:2018/01/10 Really worth a visit
This is an interesting mix of Japanese and Western food. The combination works really well. We ordered a number of plates to share which was a great idea and between the six of us we covered many...
Reviewed:2017/03/02 Great food and drinks
This place is a very comfortable, warm and funky cafe/restaurant serving delicious food and drinks with beautiful treats if your lucky to get some before they sell out.
The staff speak good English...

Yamagata Main Areas


Although often overlooked, Yamagata prefecture by no means lacks appeal: the Yamadera temple trail through the mountains, deliciously tender Yonezawa wagyu, and over 100 steaming hot springs, most notably Zao Onsen, await visitors. When winter comes, the snowcapped peaks become dotted with skiers by day and onsen-goers by night, while summer brings the celebration of juicy Yamagata cherries.
