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.

Momo and Tony (owners) are such welcoming and friendly people I recommend you visit the cottage just to meet them! I'm vegetarian and they were happy to amend the menu to make me something I could eat. We booked a table to come back later in the week and tony cooked us a three course vegetarian feast complete with apple... More

Our two families (four adults and five kids) stopped here after a long day's walk through Kanazawa. We completely took over the restaurant and they served us a wonderful meal of freshly made pasta and pizza, finished off with Irish Coffee and a glass of Irish whisky for the road. Good food and great hospitality.

Arriving in Kanazawa to torrential rain and darkness I was not filled with much hope for a fun stay. Luckily the next day the weather cleared and I got to explore the city. I had read reviews of The Cottage on Trip advisor so headed down for lunch. It was everything the reviews say, cute little place, great food and... More

Momo and Tony are great hosts: gracious and accommodating. There were 11 of us and so we took up the whole restaurant. We had thin crust pizza, heaps of red wine, freshly made tagliatelle and apple crumble, as well as fresh bread and salad. Spirited and cozy. Very reasonable prices.
