I can only second all the positive things said about this restaurant. I grew up in a major oyster-producing region of the US, so I know my oysters. I chose the barbecued oysters because I had never had them prepared that way. I was expecting something with spicy tomato sauce, but they were just lightly flavored by being cooked on... More

We stopped here for lunch to taste the oysters from the Hiroshima bay. Ordered the oysters deep fried and prawns! So delicious and fresh! The staff were lovely, and the service fast and efficient! Wish I had also tried the BBQ oysters that were being prepared fresh outside the resturant!

We were drawn to Kakiya when we saw the oysters on the grill at the front of the restaurant. We both had the set menu - fried oysters, miso with little oysters, rice, pickle & sauces. We loved the food & had fun choosing what to drink from the excellent wine list. We were surprised at how cheap a meal... More

However if you are in Miyajimi for a day trip you should come here and taste the islands famous delicacy. The restaurant has a take away section outside where you can simply order take away grilled oysters as they are cooked in front of you otherwise you can opt to sit inside the restaurant for a comfier option. We ordered... More

It's a very cool place where you can find oysters in every style: raw, grilled, boiled, fried... You can drink a very good sake or, like me, champagne - there are many choices of wine. Prices are ok. And you are in the marvellous Miyajima island!

We were intrigued to try this place after seeing the long queue outside; a restaurant has to be good to inspire people to queue in the freezing cold Japanese winter, especially when there is no shortage of alternative oyster restaurants on Miyajima. The oysters were huge and available in many delicious forms including natural, crumbed, gratin and flame grilled. This... More

Recommended by a couple of the locals and we had to give it a try....AMAZING!!! Some of the best oysters I've ever had! So fresh and delicious!!! My friend doesn't even like oysters and he loved the fried oysters. I ordered the plate of 4 raw oysters (¥1,000) and a single sweet one (¥400). Definitely worth it!! ☆

Brilliant find. We came her following the great reviews on trip advisor and were or disappointed. Pay special attention to the photos of the outside otherwise you'd never find it!! There was a bit of a queue but there are plenty of tables and it moved fast. We had brilliant oysters and great wine. A truly fantastic lunch venue. Make... More

We made a trip to Miyajima to see the beautiful shrines and Torii gate and stopped over at this place for lunch. Why this one and not so many of the other places also serving great looking food? Basically because it only served oysters and had a HUGE selection of wines. There is no English signage that we could see... More

It was raining pretty hard when we left hiroshima, and it was worse as we got to miyajima. Another reviewer told about the sampler. Worth it. Comes with a little of everything. The server said it was a secret menu item. Shouldn't be a secret. It's awesome.
