The main dining is not so large. Wooden interior with gentle orange lighting makes relaxing atmosphere. The Rainbow Bridge is just in front of us through the window. If we sit besides the window, the atmosphere is more romantic. In fact, it seemed some couples enjoyed special dinner.
Dinner is available from JPY10,500 and a full-course menu including cheese is JPY15,750. Though the full-course is not cheap, it is value for money considering the contents and quality. Actually, every meal was really delicious. Modern and distinctive. In the light taste, something distinctive is hidden. The taste was very clear and impressive. In particular, theie sauce was wonderful.
One of the main dish was grilled wagyu beef, and it was superb. It was at the level of teppenyaki-specialized restaurants. Even only wagyu beef streak is recommendable. On the contrary to the dishes, dessert was a bit weak. Just average. And most staff is young. If you expect sophisticated service, it might be disappointing (though I liked their fresh service). My rating is 4.3 out of 5. Gochiso-samadeshita!
