Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I wanted to visit this restaurant for the local seki saba and seki aji. It was very delicious and we also enjoyed other items from the recommended menu. English menu is available.

I chose this restaurant from the reviews here. I thought it would have more non-Japanese style options, but it does not. It does have English men. So I included pictures of the menu so you would know what options you have. This area is known...for the "Oita Prefecture Seki Mackerel" which my husband enjoyed. If you like Japanese food, the menu is extensive and I'm sure you will find something you will like here.More

Arrived just after 5pm as lots of people in town for RWC. Seated at the bar. English menus are available. Decided is was going to be tempura night - chicken and vegetables. Tempura was delicate that all you could taste was the vegetables. Chicken portion...was generous and delicious.More

We didn't have reservations but we arrived when they first opened. They sat us at the bar with the agreement that we would be done in about 90 minutes. I highly recommend reservations! We had some great food and the staff was very helpful. The...seafood was wonderfully fresh.More

Being in a fine country like Japan, everyone is entitled to apply a higher standard and not to be disappointed. Even so, this place is still finer than the finest, from the ingredients to the variety, the ambiance to the service. This place is simply...flawless.More

Beppu had our favourite restaurant of our 3-week holiday in Japan. There were a couple of ‘Robata-jin’ Izakaya restaurants at the beach end of the main street that lead down from the train station (on right side when facing towards beach) . One was one...around the corner from the first one and it was like an overflow restaurant to the other as we were directed to the second one because it was full. We ate in Robata-jin all 3 nights in a row as food and experience was superb!More

Went there on a evening. You can choose the fish directly in front on you. Didn't try it but sounds pretty fresh. I had yakitoris, grilled fish, beef and everything was excellent. But be careful it can be expensive at the end. No english menu....Nice local beers.More

We ate at Pub Robata Jin our first night in Beppu, and had to return for a second meal before leaving. By going early we were able to avoid a wait or making a reservation, of course June is not a busy time of year....By the time we left it was packed each night we went. The food is very good, with highest marks for the Beef and Amberjack fish head. Being a westerner the fish head is not on my radar, but my wife is Chinese and the Char-grilled Fish head was amazing I have to admit. The beef was llike butter and melted in our mouths. The beer was cold, nuff said....great food local atmosphere!More

We went there on a Friday night and was not able to get any seat as the restaurant is fully booked until Sunday. Needless to say we did not get any food. I suppose the good must be good.

Almost at the end of a not so memorable Japanese dinner, came the last dish to surprise everyone and make everything whole. Amberjack fish head. Absolutely amazing. Reset the table, another serving of cold sake and ordered another Amberjack head. Service is OK. Prices are...reasonable and the fish head is not from this planet. Amazing.More

My only day in Beppu and I found this restaurant on Tripadvisor. Great find, because the place and food are awesome! I had the vegetable and chicken tempura. What also is nice: they have an English menu.

The restaurant was very close to the Beppu Station, only a 10-minute walk away. Along the street in front of the train station, there were tens of restaurant, many of them were nearly empty during weekdays. However, Robata Jin was fully-seated every day, right after...17:00, when it opened. I tried several dishes, all of which tasted good. My personal favorite was the skewers: fresh and delicately seasoned. I ordered some sashimi, skewers, tango (a local dish with wider noodles and miso) and a grilled eggplant. The total cost was just 2,730 yen.More

A very good restaurant with great service. Located in a good location, close to both beach and JR station. Try beef broil and fried chicken (karaage). Other dishes that we ordered re also good. The staffs were very helpful - english menu is available.

Got into Beppu later than planned (730pm) and wanted to eat some famous Seki-saba and Seki-aji. So as we walked up the street leading up to Beppu station, my wife and I were repeatedly turned away from the izakaya/restaurants that posted they had seki-saba/aji....due to...no seats. Wife was getting hangry so decided to take a chance with Beer Pub Robata Jin since we saw it on the corner coming up the street earlier. We were so glad we chose this place. English is limited at the restaurant, but the menu was superb. So many local seafood delicacies. We had hirame sashimi, hamaguri (type of clam), grilled scallops, and some toriten (chicken tempura). All of which was very good. The shochu list was nice and was very moderately priced. I think we ordered 5-7 dishes and several rounds of drinks. I think our bill didn't pass 7000 yen. A good deal for quality food and drink! we'd definitely come back again for sure...but go earlier or make reservation so we could get our fill of seki-saba and seki aji.More
