Mmmmm, oysters!

You can't beat the convenience if you are walking in the park or checking out the Atomic Bomb Dome. We stopped by during sakura season for a quick bite and some drinks. After a brief wait we were seated and had an excellent meal of pizzas and plates of oysters. Beer and wine was in line with... read more

To get a different perspective on Hiroshima after the sobering, but necessary, sadness of the Memorial gardens and museum, just over the bridge you will find this delightful restaurant, with outdoor seating that offers fantastic seafood, oysters, steaks and more with really nice, reasonably priced wines. Recommended for either a long, late lunch, or an earlyish dinner (last orders is... More

After wandering around the Peace Park, my wife and stumbled across this lovely cafe, right on the river. Sat outside, under parasols, we both ate the excellent Carbonara, which was recommended by another diner, who just happened to be Italian and washed it down with a few cold beers. The service was leisurely, but more than adequate and we found... More

We loved this place so much we returned several times for drinks, a snack and to enjoy the atmosphere. It is near the peace park and also the river excursion boats. Service is slow and relaxed so don't be in a hurry. ladies have on of their fruit jar cocktails or a glass of champagne.

On a rainy night with the typhoon due in later in the evening, we made our way here for a delightful evening . Salad, fried clams, pasta with wine combined with very pleasant wait staff hit the spot. Outside seating looks good but the high wind led us to eat inside

We stayed only for drinks (very nice fuzzy navel). The cafe offers something we have found lacking in Japan, that is an airy place to sit and relax, particularly useful after the A Bomb Museum. It's just very very nice and in a great location by the river.

Beautiful restaurant right on the river. Very romantic. Excellent service. Ordered caesar salad, garlic bread, and tortellini. Everything was superb. Absolutely recommend to anyone craving Italian in Japan.

Friends and I went to this restaurant after a long morning's journey from Osaka and an afternoon's visit to the peace park and memorial museum. The service was fantastic - quick and very attentive, with drinks arriving almost as soon as we'd ordered them. Our waiter in particular was a gem, remaining calm and cheerful despite the searing temperatures. I... More
