“A terrace in Japan!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

After traveling in Japan for a while, I noticed that there are very few places to have a drink or something to eat outside. Caffe Ponte is nice place overlooking the river, with nice food. Prices are on the high side though!

“Good dining choice while exploring Peace Memorial Park area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

This is a good, if slightly pricey cafe / Italian restaurant on the edge of Peace Memorial Park and an easy walk from the downtown shopping core of Hiroshima. Staff speaks English. Food is good - pizza, sandwiches, warm baguettes / bread. Great lunch spot break.

“Fantastic oyster pasta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

After a day walking around the Memorial Peace Park and visiting the museum, we found the this nice place nearby the A-bomb dome. My girlfriend and me both enjoyed a pasta dish with oysters. (mine penne, hers spaghetti)
Both priced around the 1300 yen, it was really delicious. There are not many places in Japan where you can eat outside like this.

“Good location, set meals good deal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

Located on the river just by the A Dome with, unusually for japan, a set of outdoor tables that allow you to watch the world go buy. Place specialises in oysters and Italian food. Set meal was a good deal (for Italian food in Japan - 1980 yen for soup, bread, salad, pasta, desert and a drink - include g beer and wine). Food very good and love,y place to while away an hour or too.

“Good, clean & convenient”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

After spending a few hours in the museum and park we were hungry. This is the first place we found. My son, who is adverse to seafood, saw a number of things on the menu to his liking so we stayed. We had an outdoor table. Service was good, our waitress did not speak English and we did not speak Japanese but we managed. Prices were a little high but great location. Food was good and we were happy. My son ordered the 'Garlic Bucket' which actually is garlic toast. Picture attached! In the neighborhood there are numerous dining options, so look around. Probably 4 okonomiyaki shops within a block but was catering to my son's desire for this meal.
