Had a pretty good lunch for a reasonable money. View is peaceful and nice. English-speaking waiters and administrator. Open terrace.

Stopped in here for a glass of champagne & a few oysters before dinnner. Location over looking the river is very relaxing & quite reflective. The calming qualities of the cold champagne enables one to reflect on the reason we visited Horoshima. The service was fine, albeit the restaurant was very quite.

After the emotion of the Hiroshima memorial and museum we need to 'regather' and fortified ourselves with coffee and chocolate gateau. Also a fresly squeezed orange juice. While it was fine for what it was, I don't think the staff were that interested in what they were doing. But it's in a great spot, especially if you want to catch... More

After touring Peace Memorial Park, we wanted to have lunch. On the way back to our hotel(Rihga Royal Hotel Hiroshima), we found this delight. It's situated just across the river from a nice tourist office in Peace Park, right by the bridge and water. Smoke free. There is outside dining under pretty umbrellas and also inside tables. We managed to... More

Overpriced and in attentive service. We ordered standard size portions of mussels (16 dry and lukewarm mussels ) and chicken risotto which was a small lump on a large plate. Overall a let down. Our inpression was over hyped and not worth the prices which were above the average by 20% So our advice - and we praise when we... More

I ended up enjoying this place a number of times on my visit to Hiroshima. The location, right on the river is a great place to sit back and enjoy a meal. Even when it rained very heavily the staff really go out of their way to help you. The staff were excellent and some of the best I encountered... More

My husband and I had a delicious and very relaxing dinner at Caffe Ponte. We shared a salad, and I had the pasta with spinach and oysters. My husband had the oyster risotto. Everything was cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. Wine by the glass was very good. Restaurant is located on the river across from Peace Park. There is... More

Due to its high ranking on tripadvisor, my wife and I stopped here after visiting the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. I'm not usually motivated to write (somewhat) negative reviews, but I thought it would be helpful to balance out some of the more positive reviews on here. The good: The restaurant is in great spot along the canal and the... More

We were in Hiroshima for 3 days and ate dinner here al fresco every evening. The young staff, food, decor, and setting are excellent. Whether salads, shellfish, pasta, or meat dishes, the presentation is just right. The fresh-pressed cold juices (orange or mango) were super fresh and very refreshing after an entire day on Miyajima Island! The staff, including the... More
