Business dinner for a group of 8 in this lovely establishment. Service was wonderful, and so was the Amaretto and wine selection. The food.... Very nice from appetizer to desert. Throw in excellent conversation and it was a perfect night at a great restaurant. Thanks!

Visited with my family on my birthday. I've been to Cicada several times few years ago thought it was a great restaurant that is why I chose it but this time it was not as impressive as I thought I expected it to be. Maybe the seats we sat wasnt as nice? I used to tabled by the balcony side... More

Being fans of some of the other TY Harbor Brewery restaurants, we decided to try Cicada due to the great reviews and reputation. The place itself is very nice, but it costs 1000 yen extra per person to sit outside but the pool. We sat in our own too with sliding doors off the main restaurant which was OK as... More

One of my favourite Mediterranean restaurant in Aoyama. Good atmosphere, nice food and wines from Mediterranean which are quite unusual in Japan.

We went at Cicada our last night before leaving Tokyo. The area were the restaurant is located, not far from Omotesando Rd is very picturesque. I recommend going there earlier just to take a walk at the surrounding area.. What have I to say about this amazing restaurant? The staff is really polite, as most of the people in Tokyo,... More

A Mediterranean restaurant with a varied menu. Works out cheaper for dinner than similar places in the group, and also has an excellent value lunch course. A firm favourite with us, you often need to book ahead for lunch as it gets very busy with lunching ladies!

This is a great place to start a business meeting as if has great beers from the Mediterranean beer made by their owners own research. The hummus and ham go hand in hand. The ambience is great. The reception beautiful women take care of you and your luggage. Nice reception!

Super pretty & atmospheric Mediterranean restaurant, lots of outdoor seating with plenty of fairy lights in the trees and candles on the tables. We sat outside even though it was a cool night, because they have about a million outdoor heaters going. We had a lamb tagine & a grilled chicken thing and they were great. Mid-range prices but seems... More

Hands down, a date place. Popular hide-out (no big wonder) for dinners (TIP: must secure table reservations). The hummus is decent; but the polpo and fish tagine need improvement.
