Nice little place hidden in the basement next to hotel Shibuya. Down 35 steps you’ll find great food, English menus and tasty food. Try starting out with the home made cheese baguette, tofu style. Prawns were also delicious.

One of our better eating experiences in Japan over 3 weeks. Our adult son had recommended it as one of his favourites when he lived in Tokyo. Not easy to find but worth the search. Food was great, service was good and atmosphere spot on....More

A little hard to find bit really worth the search. On this particular evening they were fully booked. With a little persuasion they agreed to take us in as long as we left within 1 hr. Food and service was superb

The food is good enough but we took the set menu for four people and we paid 4000 yen per each and got food and drinks that cost much less in the regular menu. One dish for everybody and not four dishes to each person....More

Really surprise by all the good reviews ! Really expensive, you must spend 400 yen per person + buy a drink + add tax on all items you bought, and it is not even good... just the environnement is nice. Don't do the same mistakes...More

Told our party of 3 that they were full when we could clearly see there was nobody inside and turned us away. Whatever.

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.

I'd say it's probably better to make a reservation. We arrived VERY early and were given the table besides the entrance, which is not great. The place is pretty busy so plan ahead.
