I had a dinner with my wife. The restaurant is located approx. eight-minute walk away from the center of the town. We ordered several high-quality Ishigaki beefs at about 1500 JPY (12 USD) per plate (approx. 6 pieces). They were tasty, however, because of lots of fat included in high-quality beefs... read more

As Yamamoto is not a large restaurant, recommend booking well in advance as the restaurant seems to stop taking customers after 7 pm as it looks like they want to close by 9 pm. No English... More
