The blarney came from the very charming Japanese hostess who made us feel most welcome and took very good care of us. The Irish presence was a more cut and dry one. This tiny cafe is very attractive. The menu though limited (and possibly changed daily) is a satisfying one. The thin crust pizzas we ordered were very good, though... More

If you want a break from Japanese food, go no further than Cottage. I ate every last mouthful of my vegetarian lasagne; and my partner cleared his plate of roast chicken. I was so happy with my meal; and the owners were so hospitable, and lovely to chat with.

We ate here one night looking for a night off Japanese. We felt a bit guilty but The owner reassured us the Japanese would too in our country! We had beautiful homemade pasta and pizz with a thin base and both with simple, well flavoured toppings. We really enjoyed sitting at the bar watching Tony cook. Amazing food from a... More

Food was good quality and the hosts are friendly. Portions a little on the small side considering the price.

I have been to Kanazawa a few times now over the last 6 months on business and have often walked past The Cottage. On my last trip last week I called in and I'm so glad I did. I had some of Tony's homemade pizza and beef and guiness pie ~ fantastic!! The hosts (Tony and Momo) are really friendly... More

Awesome. Great food and we laughed all evening! The google map put us about 2 blocks too far south but we asked for directions from a shop owner and he put us on track. I think he wanted to come!

The cottage was my favourite place to eat and drink in Kanazawa. The food was fresh and delicious. There are not many places that make their own pasta right in front of you. Tony's pizzas (again, made in front of you) were very tasty and his Beef in Guinness was tremendous. The prices are very good too. For me and... More

After reading all the great comments and feedback on this place I decided to drop by and see what all the fuss was about and it was not unwarranted! Tony is your typical Irishman, likes to joke, have a laugh and has those mannerisms and sayings you won't find anywhere else while you're in Japan! Momo is a really humble... More

I just want to thank Tony and Momo for their wonderful hospitality when we visited - not only did they fill us with wonderful home cooked food, they also treated us like their personal friends and brought us to a great blues bar. It was also great value incidentally - all in all I cannot recommend highly enough!!
