Delicious, fresh oysters

Came here for lunch after reading reviews and it met all our expectations and more! We tried the grilled, gratain and battered oyster dishes. It was so good and I've never eaten oysters more fresh than this. I was gutted their raw oysters had sold out as I would have tried them

They really do cook their oysters to perfection, because we were trying out a few different places for oysters we decided to share their 6 course set which was a great way to sample the oysters done different ways. Our favourite was definitely the fried and bbqued oysters so next time i would just get that. The place is surprisingly... More

Oysters are plentiful on Miyajima so we did wonder if it was worth spending the extra to eat here. I am so glad we did! The oysters - both fried and au gratin were unbelievably delicious- large, creamy, perfectly cooked - and twice the size of those I had last at the Whitstable oyster festival in the UK. Better still... More

Decided to try this place based on TripAdvisor reviews, food was amazing! Not having had oysters before was a bit daunting but they were delicious. Had one off the BBQ, and then the deep fried platter, with a glass of Kirin. A little bit pricey for a backpacker budget but well worth it. Would definitely return and recommend!

How good? This traveller says best anywhere. The grilled ones on the bbq were my favourite but my special order combo plate for 2000+ yen came with: 1 smoked, 2 bbq grill in half shell, 3 luscious plump seamed ones on rice, 3 huge breaded and fried for total of 9 with the rice and greens which themselves were tasty....

My family and I came here for lunch on our last day on Miyajima. Everything we had was super fresh and delicious! We had oysters (BBQ, raw, marinated on rice, deep fried) and thoroughly enjoyed them with some delightful french wine. The prices are very reasonable we literally got full from eating just oysters. Would love to go back some... More

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.
