Fantastic last night in Tokyo.

My daughter and I ate here on May 1st. as her birthday treat and a farewell dinner. We were at the 6pm sitting and 7 of the 8 (only) seats were booked . 15 courses followed in the next 2 hours that were tasty, beautifully presented, nicely sized and sometimes humorous.

Our review is long overdue as we visited the restaurant in May 2013. However, we wanted to write a review as we had a great experience at the restaurant and one of the best meals we've ever had. The experience was fun and unique and the food was delicious. We enjoyed talking to the chefs while they prepared the dishes... More

This was our last night out in Tokyo and it was amazing! The chefs really made the event interactive and the whole experience was so much fun. If you have some extra cash available at the end of your trip you should definitely dine here.

It is much more than just food!! It is whole package: fun, taste, entertainment and excellent atmosphere. Only 6 people are allowed at once and i think that is the excellent part, you can only focus on the surprises that are hidden:) I love it.

As much a visual experience as a dining one, the 2 chefs did an amazing job in chatting, explaining and keeping the evening going (ours hailed from home in Vancouver!) The food is very creative, and very tasty. For the high quality of food and experience, i thought that 15,000 yen was a pretty good value. The alcohol prices though... More

We were there to celebrate Mother's Day, my mom and my sister's birthday and it was such a treat! The chefs took us on a gastronomic journey, and the meal was one of surprise, subtlety, experience with a dose of humor! An unforgettable meal, thank you.

2nd visit after two years. It was 16 course menu (+one extra which was not on the menu), naturally very much different from the first time (the menu can be seen on their HP). It was even more creative than the first visit two years ago. There are 8 counter-seats, two chefs, one speaks Japanese and other English, which is... More

I was not particularly impressed by molecular cooking before but the dining experience at Tapas Molecular Bar changed my view completely. A vast variety of cooking methods including traditional and innovative ones were used to create every dish in a well-balanced menu of perfect combinations. The presentation was spectacular and every dish was absolutely delicious! It is molecular with a... More

Dinner at the Molecular Bar was one of the most amazing experiences for me as a foodie... I've made reservations 3 months upfront and the reservation team were very polite and accommodating to my requests. The service in general from reservation to the end of the meal was outstanding. On arrival to the restaurant, the host seated me at a... More

Neighborhood Profile
Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's also a downtown area with shops that were founded over a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza. It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels, world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular with anyone looking for a night out.
