This was one of those places where the food wasn't what it was all about. I mean the food was very good and beautifully layed out and all but the service was out of this world! As far as I was concerned, the best part of the meal was the wine, starting with the extensive wine list to the knowledgeable... More

With a taste of Japan included in the menu. Enjoyed the caviar dish which we added on. The sea urchin dish was special. Good wine selection

One of my best meals ever at the fancy upstairs part of the chateau. Beginning of meal started with delicious Champagne and amuse-bouche. And it only got better. Had the 5-course menu with white and red French wines plus selections from their bread cart (see photos). Menus include English. Service was very friendly and attentive without being the least overbearing.... More

We typically try and visit a Michelin reviewed restaurant in any city we visit (if there is one), so it is hard not to compare similar *'d or Gourmand rated restaurants. We were in Tokyo for a 'long weekend' and were able to secure a reservation for Le Chateau de Joel Robuchon. Note he now has 8 restaurants, café's, bistro's,... More

It was a Sunday night, and as much as we tried to eat Japanese for our stay in Tokyo, the fish markets are closed on Sunday; and the concierges in our hotel (Imperial Hotel) recommended to not dine on Japanese fare, as it wouldn't be as fresh as is preferred. We elected Joel Robuchon, as we have dined at his... More

The first Michelin restaurant (La Table) I have been in Tokyo so far although tried lots of local food and good too. Cozy environment with good service. No doubt, food is very delicious. I must get a seat next time at Joel Robuchon.

I'm a big fan of Joel Robuchon since he was at the Raymond Pointcaré avenue in the mid 1990's, but I don't believe that he deserves the 3 stars in this restaurant when compared to other restaurants of this category in the world. Of course, the palace is beautiful as well as the decor, but the food was not memorable... More

What a relief to find a real French Restaurant in Tokyo. The other two "top" establishments we tried were quite disappointing. Chateau's operation is seamless. From the time one enters the front door to one's departure, staff members do their best to ensure a top experience. Our table was excellent and let's face it, black table clothes against a backdrop... More

Staying in Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu

Neighborhood Profile
Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast, Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool. At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.
