This could be a wonderful place to chill for a whole afternoon!

The restaurant overlooks the beautiful sea. And it also has a lovely terrace where the customers may fully appreciate the view while dining.

Foods and drinks are affordable. A scoop of ice cream costs 450 yen. That for a drink ranges from 400 to 700 yen.

One more wonderful thing is: the waiters speak English!!

you can sit inside, or outside on the back terrace and enjoy a beautiful view over the ocean. Just a 20 or 30minute walk from the boat pier is definitely worth it and will start your appetite. or just use a rental bike. You can choose the main dish and help yourself to the buffet. Small and experimental portions, with staff advice or tips of how best to combine your dish. Also, coffee and juice as much as you want. It has a very relaxed atmosphere. If you come with kids, they can play in the garden and will stay in your sight because of the bushes acting as a fence.
On the terrace it can be a bit windy, but it is so worth it!

Wanted to try the restaurant next door but it was closed so popped over to this one. Upon entering, a staff approached us with no smile and an unwelcoming tone. Speaking in Japanese, we replied back in our poor Japanese "sorry we don't understand well Japanese". She then replied "reservation only". As we were about to leave we noticed that all the tables outside (half the restaurant basically) were empty, so we approached her again and asked "outside ones?" With a very annoyed look she again said "reservation only". After we were basically kicked out, we couldn't believe how cold and rude the reaction we received from the front desk staff was. If you don't want any business for your half empty restaurant that's fine by us.

My partner and I went there last week. We were on holiday to celebrate our anniversary. We chose this restaurant because the one we wanted to do nearby was full and the view looked nice. We were fairly disappointed about the quality of the products. We ordered two pizzas with a glass of wine and a beer. The wine was disgusting. The pizzas were really small. We felt that they were frozen. My partner asked a waitress if he could have a pizza without an ingredient and she said no... The pizzas did not look homemade at all. So disappointed for the pice of them. We obviously skipped the dessert. Do not recommend at all !

This cafe is located along the shore and a bit far from islands terminal port.
I visited here by rental bicycle from Ishigaki-town.
From terrace table, I could see the panorama of blue ocean over the garden.
It was so beautiful. The lawn and trees were like a picture frame.
As to menu, I ordered mango lassi, which was good but not so remarkable.
If I can visit here again I would try curry lunch.
