Took my wife here for her birthday. We were both quite pleased with the entire experience. It can be a bit tricky to find but it's worth the effort.

Good food and beer, although, for Tokyo the prices seem high for the portion sizes. Service is variable particularly when wanting to sit outside - it often takes FAR too long to be seated even when there are numerous free tables available outside. Very frustrating.

Certainly recommend for anyone walking in Omotesando area to have a nice and relax lunch. Food menu is not extensive, however, very good food. I tried the Humus and the Calamari and both were great. Tried the rib eye as main course, which was also nice. On the beverage selection is not great, but more than enough for a relaxed... More

I've eaten here for both lunch and dinner. Both were very good dining experiences but my friends and I enjoyed dinner more because of the atmosphere. Very tasty food (dishes a bit on the small side however), especially the tagine and hummus. The servers were all very attentive - ours spoke some English, which was a relief! Will definitely come...

Met a few friends here for lunch this week and loved it. We sat outside and ordered from the set lunch menu. Incredible appetizers (definitely try the hummus and the stuffed calamari) and beautiful cocktails. The staff was friendly and the menu was easy to order from. I love how airy and spacious the restaurant really is. Will definitely be... More

I have eaten here a couple of times and realized I hadn't reviewed it which is silly because I really like this restaurant and make a habit of trying to get here when I am in Tokyo! It is mediterranean small plates and the menu changes according to the season. Had the pleasure of talking to the head chef (David... More

This is a very large, beautifully-decorated, restaurant iwith a chic but warm atmosphere deally-suited to that special night out. As I had enjoyed my frst visit so much I decided to spend my... More

Very popular place with healthy, Moroccan/Greek/Portuguese cuisine. I have never had anything on the menu that I don't like. Accommodating, helpful staff (unless you have kids, they are not welcome unless you are willing to pay extra to be shoved into a private room)

The food was excellent. Servers were visible when needed and absent when not needed. Good selection of dishes. Everyone in the group enjoyed their dinners. We had a private room upstairs which was quiet to facilitate conversations among everyone.

We walked in off the street, turns out they are booked most of the week. We ended up eating outside under an umbrella. they bring you a blanket. We had the hummus which is some of the best we have ever had. We both ordered the chicken tagine, we could have split the order. Tagine was delicious, fresh ingredients, filling.... More
