I and my husband went to this restaurant today after I found it from Tripadvisor. Staffs were nice and foods were also nice. Roasted lamb was really tender and tasty. In a Tapas menu, we chose roasted calamari, cheesy potatoes. The calamari was a bit salty but not too much. We could have a bread (India nan-like) and it was... More

Met a friend for a last minute lunch and we were able to score a table for two at Cicada. I've noticed that it has gotten increasingly harder to get a table at lunch without a reservation; however, because we arrived early (before twelve o'clock), we had no problem whatsoever. The free ice tea, the friendly service, the delightful Mediterranean... More

As always (5 th or so time I've eaten here) fantastic food, solid service, friendly staff that try to speak english, and great time. Unrushed, over the top food and wine. Thank you for this special place in Omotesondo area.

Have visited several times but recently went for a friend's birthday dinner. The Greek salad is so wonderful; I get it each time. Entree was the torofie (short pasta) with porcini and shiitake in creamy tomato marsala sauce. Delicious but after the salad and grilled flat bread, I couldn't finish it. My friend had the grilled tuna steak with cous... More

This is a comfortable, cosy setting off Aoyama Dori, easy walking distance from Omotesando. Delicious tapas - recommend the scallops and also the feta fritters. Bread and hummus is also excellent. Tried Lebanese wine for the first time and it was a good accompaniment. Highly recommended!

My friend took me to Cicada for dinner and I was told this is a very popular restaurant these days in Tokyo. It was crowded, but not too noisy. It was, indeed, very nice atmosphere. Pricewise, it wasn't reasonable, but it may be avarage in the area. Foodwise, reasonably good. Just 2 hour time slot made me a little disappointed.... More
