Tucked away on the eighth floor of a non-descript building near Shinsabashi train station, this restaurant was amazing. You might call it a hole-in-the-wall! I was taken to the restaurant by a friend who lives in Osaka, who said he thought I’d like it and...More

Easy enough to find in the building opposite the plaza. Great atmosphere and decor, very small space, but didn't feel like you were on top of anyone. We order the vegetarian combo, which was really nice. The meal was oddly lacking rice? But we did...More

This place was fantastic - the food was great, portions were generous. Service was polite (of course, it's Japan). But the best thing was the atmopshere inside the restaurant. I lived in Mexico for a while and this place had me longing to go back...More

Great atmosphere in the cave like setting. Friendly staff with good English. Fabulous and authentic food that is really fresh. A great location above the Shinsaibashi subway station on the Midsuji line - just near the famous Dotombori shopping arcade. Great value too! I recommend...More

Tucked away on the 8th floor of a tower in busy Shinsaibashi - amazing atmosphere, great food and great drinks. The regular margarita was ok but the flavored margaritas and Mexican fizz are delicious! Definitely recommend.

Hidden nugget of a place! The lift going up to the 8th floor hides a gem of a place. Good cocktails and good food too. Friendly and good location too.

The food and atmosphere were fantastic! After living in Japan for a year this was such a great surprise. I will definitely be coming back. Good happy hour and good for groups of up to 6. Located on the 8th floor-worth the trip up.

Found this place when looking for veggo restaurants in Osaka. OMG what a gem. The place has an awesome atmosphere and although busy we were not kept waiting. I ordered the vegetarian burrito combo which has a burrito, nacho chips, guac, crisps, quesadilla, potato mash...More

Happy to find this place, and upon entering, I was impressed with the decor, music, and atmosphere, tucked away on the 8th floor near Shinsaibashi. I really wanted to like the place. Service was slow despite there being only two singles and two doubles there...More
