Dinner

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!!

We popped in at 6pm on a Sunday for some delicious home cooked food. A simple salad for starters, perfectly prepared. I had the stew which was lovely, served with jacket potatoes and homemade bread. My wife had a vegetarian lasagne which was also great, we shared our mains. For desert I had a pizza, it was great, shitake mushrooms... More

My girlfriend and I have been traveling around Japan and needed a break from fish. Tony served us a delicious fresh pizza with fennel and marscipone cheese. The fennel was just brought in today from a special farmer that Tony asked to grow it for him back in November last year. We also got an exquisite Beef Stew with potato... More

My husband and I stopped here for lunch and were treated with some wonderful homemade pasta and cheerful conversation. Great place to take a break from the usual Japanese food. Note to lonely planet book users: their location has changed since the book was published, so please check for their new address online!

After reading about The Cottage we were very curious. We found it via other reviews on Trip Advisor (it has moved indeed, although in the same street). We went in for a drink and some diner but ended up talking and chilling with Tony and Momo for almost 6 hours. These guys are awesome! Tony is the quiet one (he... More

Find this place tucked behind the Korinbo shopping mall. The hosts were so lovely, ready to make conversation and share their cheerful attitude to life. There's only a small selection of food available but it's homemade and if you're pining for some honest Anglo-Irish fare, this is just the place. Tony, the owner, had cooked a real Xmas Pudding with... More

We stopped in for lunch and ended up staying for hours chatting to the lovely hosts. Our pizza and pasta were both delicious and the restuarant was cozy - a welcome retreat from the cold. The lonely planet map is inaccurate - they have moved to behind the 109 department store.
