hard to book seat for 2 during regular dinner hours, so only booked at 8pm. As it is a local restaurant, so they don't speak English. So booked seat by hotel. The beef is the best that i have before, although cut thick, but not...More

Recommended and booked for us by the hotel, it was seriously the most delicious and juicy beef we had during our stay on the island. We tried 2 other places and they didn't really compare. We ordered 2 serves of the most expensive sirloin meat...More

The restaurant is so full that I could not book a table in weekend. Try my luck by walk-in and get a table which we need to return in 45 mins. We try the same quality of wagyu in other restaurants of Ishigaki but Yamamoto...More

Came in and they instantly knew that it was me (I guess I was the only non-Japanese speaker there) and the staff treated me really well and made sure I had everything I needed. I got a set for around 6000 JPY with a wide...More

The Ishigaki beef is good, order the mixed sets for four if you have a group. Pricey but a good option for larger groups with that option. The staff is attentive and they have English speakers available.

Quite a pricey place, but it does have nice authentic atmosphere and great food. English menu was provided and the waiter who was serving us spoke quite fluently as well, explaining us the details of the menu patiently. The prices were a bit steep, but...More

Our booking was at 5:30pm. Yes, it was early. But you'd better go there early so all meat selections are available for you. Special Ishigaki beef steak was about 3000yen. It was fantastic and you'd pay 10,000 yen at any other places I want to...More

After reading how famous Ishigaki beef is, I had to try. Apparently Yamamoto is very famous/popular bbq restaurant with individual grills for each table. As Yamamoto is not a large restaurant, recommend booking well in advance as the restaurant seems to stop taking customers after...More
