這餐廳面向美麗平靜的金鏻湖, 安靜而且優美 主要用及餐椅令人感到舒服, 招乎極好! 叫了多杯㗎啡, 意粉和漢堡飽都極有水準 我們快樂的在向著湖面的一張枱渡過了輕鬆的下午!! Will come back !!

On a relaxing day wandering around Yufuin Onsen shopping street, we visited Kinrin Lake and had afternoon tea at Cafe La Ruche by the lake side. Our table overlooked Lake Kinrin. The views and atmosphere were impressive. The food was average though.

Relax, Romantic place for a perfect Weekend. Nice comfort foods with wonderful lake view. Must come a bit early for a good place to seat. Limited car park available, but it is fine if you don't mind for a walk.

Perfect place to enjoy the view of Lake Kinrin. The yufuin milk they serve is also really fresh, we enjoyed it with a scone breakfast and apple cinnamon toast.

Really enjoyed Cafe la Ruche during my stay in Yufuin. The view over the little lake is charming. Had the 'open sandwhich' and a lemon yuzu squash - both were very delicious!!

This restaurant is situated just by the lake and the open air seats at the outdoor deck give you a good view of it. However, it could be noisy sometimes as there are too many tourists visiting the lake. The food is average but reasonably...More
