Lovely setting for a leisurely lunch. Great views from the dining room, complimented by classic French food and great service.

38,000 for a three course set lunch menu plus coffee and, oh by the way, 30% off the already reasonable wine prices. Of course, this means nothing if the food isn't good, the service is poor, the ambience leaves you flat or the wine list is rubbish. Astoundingly, when measured against all four of those metrics, Benoit clears the hurdles... More

As French says... "pas mal" means "pretty decent". Yes, it was amazing that I walked into a restaurant, I recall the name from Paris. For Tokyo, I was amazed with the portion - a pretty good decent portion of food served. We had a great lunch with view from top floor. The staircase going up to the dining area steps... More

A traditional French bistro managed by chef Ducasse, good cuisine, attentive staffs and good service. I suggest you to visit this restaurant at opening time because seasoning plate would be finished. The desserts are so nice also.

Benoit is one of those 'only in Tokyo' kind of places. It's a very French, very smart bistrot, run by the Alain Ducasse restaurant group, and it combines the best of French bistrot cooking with the Japanese fanaticism (meant in a good way) for quality, knowledgeable service, and taste. Although located on the very chic Aoyama-dori in the very chic... 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.
