We lived in Tokyo for 4 years and felt really lucky to have this restaurant as our favorite. The dishes are rich and masculine, with a focus on pork. The restaurant has a Michelin star. Never had anything I didn't like here and the wines...More

It's supposed to be a Michelin one-star restaurant but in reality you mustn't expect such a thing. True, it's not their fault but Michelin's but if you go there with such expectation, you never fail to get disappointed. We did actually. It's supposed to be...More

My husband took me here for my birthday. What an absolute delight, and highly authentic rustic French food. My main dish was Alsatian (pork leg) and dessert (custard cake) was yummy. Ordered escargot for the appetizer, which was delicious. My husband's pork pate was excellent.

The most cozy little French/Bask restaurant with a country farmhouse decor with images of pigs all around, offers a fantastic service, wonderful atmosphere, & delicious bask style food. We've been here on numerous occasions, impressed every time!

Let me throw it out there: the best non fancy French restaurant in Tokyo. I know, it's a bold call but let me explain why. Being a French in Tokyo, I am always looking for authentic food in a nice place that doesn't rip you...More

Highly regarded French Basque pork restaurant. Food is, indeed, very tasty, the atmosphere authentic Basque countryside - relaxed, casual. Wine list is good. A bit too expensive for pork, even if it is delicious.

Akasaka / Roppongi
Not so long ago the Akasaka and Roppongi areas were
famous for their nightlife, high-class restaurants,
bars and clubs. More recently, with the opening of
Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the
area has declared itself as the most fashionable spot
to be seen. The area also hosts the National Art
Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art
