Tried the Ishigaki beef sirloin and it was good. The chef brought out the steaks before cooking. My sirloin was extremely marbled compared to the tenderloin my friends ordered. Comparing Ishigaki beef with Kobe, I'd still go for Kobe. Ishigaki beef seems pale compared to Kobe's bright red when raw.

My wife and I visited here after reading reviews on trip advisor. You really need to know it is there otherwise you will not find it. One of the main reasons (probably the only ) for coming is the Ishigaki beef. This is cooked thicker than most BBQ restaurants so you have a better taste. We started with some shrimp... More

We booked a table well in advance and we're pleased to arrive early to watch the sunset from the 8th floor, added bonus despite the overcast sky. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly in this throwback environment, we came for beef not the decoration. The menu has sufficient translation and the staff really go out of there way to...

We wanted Ishigaki beef and we got that and more. The restaurant was in a discreet location on the 8th floor of a grey tower block. Within lays a well-run restaurant with a family-run vibe. The staff were all so friendly and helpful and showed a passion for their food. We ordered the Ishigaki sirloin 200g steak with rice but... More

This is an excellent steakhouse, not to be missed. The location is nondescript, the top floor of an eight story building, the tallest in the main town on Ishigaki. The building is easy to spot it’s on the main strip, but the sign for the restaurant is miniscule. Also, there is no public parking in the vicinity of the place.... More

There are lots of Ishigaki beef restaurants in Ishigaki, and almost all of them are BBQ style - they serve raw meat and veggie, and you need to cook by yourself. If you are looking for a western style steak of Ishigaki, This is the place to go. Located on the 5th (can't remember) floor of a tiny building, and... More

We were disapointed by this restaurant, which has a great reputation in Ishigaki. The meat is excellent, but it is extremely expensive (we have been to other steak restaurants in Japan and prices were half of what this restaurant charges). The decoration needs urgent changes as it probably hasn't been changed in the last 20 years (at least). When you... More

Absolutely amazing. Had the 250gr Sirloin for 7,300 yen. Before grilling, they show you your upcoming steaks. Your steak comes with rice or bread, a soup, a salad and a small appetizer.

The beef was just melting on tongue. I don't have enough words to describe. The restaurant itself is not easy to find - though, it's the only 8-floor building in the block. Now this special ishigaki tenderloin steak costs 9300¥, but it includes some apetizers and soup, so looks more like complete lunch, with the most tasty steak in the... More
