Wandered into this cafe as we wanted to try Ainu cuisine and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of food served. The dishes took a little long to prepare, probably because only 1 person was cooking, but it was well worth the wait. I'm guessing the Ainu dishes are a bit of a fusion with Japanese and Western (there's pizza on the menu), but the marriage was done perfectly.

Came here for dinner with family. Had a lot of the dishes in the recommended menu. The yukku don was really tasty, thoroughly recommended and meat perfectly cooked, a bit rare, extremely tasty. Pureed pumpkin also good and pumpkin deserts also recommended. The lady running the place is very sweet and they have some small kids toys to keep your little ones occupied. English menu is a plus.

This restaurant looks cosy, but I found the chap serving to be off-hand and not interested in either welcoming us or guiding us through the menu. Quite a few of the items were sold out (even though we were the first people in that evening), and there was no interest from him in trying to recommend alternatives. We left after the starters with no inclination to order more. Most of the other visitors were Japanese tourists, and it looked like they felt equally uncomfortable. Certainly a totally different experience from any other restaurant in japan I've visited.
The food was simple, quite tasty although nothing spectacular, but the odd service and lack of guidance in recommending a course of dishes for our meal meant I can't recommend this place. Try Ainu food, but not here.

nice little restaurant located in the Ainu handicraft village near Lake Akan. Not much items on the menu, which is often a good sign. I certainly enjoyed the venison bowl I had here! Very friendly service.

Loved the venison bowl. It was very well seasoned and not gamey at all. The salmon and vegetable soup meal was also tasty but my favorite was the venison.
