After more than a week in Tokyo,I was ready to take a break from Japanese food and my husband found this restaurant near our hotel. Not easy to find since it does not face a street but worth every minute spent looking for it. The business facing the street says "Catorce",some kind of clothing store so just walk to the... More

My husband took me here for my birthday. What an absolute delight, and highly authentic rustic French food. My main dish was Alsatian (pork leg) and dessert (custard cake) was yummy. Ordered escargot for the appetizer, which was delicious. My husband's pork pate was excellent.

Tucked in a side street, not far from Nishi-Azabu crossing, this is a very memorable rustic style French restaurant specialising in pork, with a long list of variations on that theme. For example I had a Basque style pate starter and for main had confit of pork shoulder with polenta. Some delicious desserts also on offer (at which point there... More

The food is at the other end of the of the spectrum from the many Tokyo modern French cuisine restaurants, with their rich sauces... More

The most cozy little French/Bask restaurant with a country farmhouse decor with images of pigs all around, offers a fantastic service, wonderful atmosphere, & delicious bask style food. We've been here on numerous occasions, impressed every time!

Let me throw it out there: the best non fancy French restaurant in Tokyo. I know, it's a bold call but let me explain why. Being a French in Tokyo, I am always looking for authentic food in a nice place that doesn't rip you off for the sake of fanciness. This place serves you excellent mostly pork based dishes,... More

Highly regarded French Basque pork restaurant. Food is, indeed, very tasty, the atmosphere authentic Basque countryside - relaxed, casual. Wine list is good. A bit too expensive for pork, even if it is delicious.
