I visited two times this small and warm atmosphere restaurant and bar during my one week stay in Kanazawa. Tony and Moma are very friendly for all guests. I didn't eat there because I had breakfirst in a hotel but I notized that other guests were happy with the food and service. Note that the address has changed just resently... More

Tony and Momo were wonderful hosts and the homemade pizza was a delicious respite from two weeks of rice (love Japanese food but nice to get some home comforts sometimes!). They were so kind and friendly, wishing us well on our travels. Tony has some great stories and we had a great evening. Thanks guys!

We saw the review and wanted to check the place out. Unfortunately all we found was a note on the door mentioning they moved. It doesn't say where they moved to, nor does the website. That's a shame

One of the best things about visiting the Cottage is its finely brewed Irish coffee. Along with dining topped with a coffee / whiskey cocktail, do open up for an engaging conversation with owners, Momo, and Tony, and find out a little more about Japan you may otherwise not have learned from popular sources. It's a good boost to the... More

I cannot speak highly enough of the welcome you will receive at The Cottage. Momo and Tony (I hope that is correct) run a wonderful small restaurant that offers a break from Japanese food (which we needed after nearly two weeks of wonderful dining). The menu is simple but beautifully cooked, and the apple crumble simply divine. You will almost... More

Felt like family with a room full of strangers. Dinner there eclipsed a day of hanami. Don't expect fireworks. More like a fireplace. Just go.

Just back from a meal at the Cottage and could not have asked for more. The couple who run this small restaurant are so welcoming and friendly. The menu may not be large but this is to the benefit of the food - the ingredients are fresh and put together just behind the bar - we could see Tony work... More

Momo & Tony know how to look after guests. They could not be more helpful. Four of us went for lunch and the restaurant was busy. Momo had time for everyone while Tony produced excellent food from the kitchen. Whenever in Kanazawa, call to see these great people in a business they set up a while ago.
