Went here on recommendation of a friend who isn't really into Japanese food. It's a high end place, which is actually two restaurants, one Japanese and one Italian. There is a bar which is between the two which has live music, and it has a balcony. Its definitely a higher end place, and on the list of places to go... More

Have been to the Xex skybar just for a "touch and go" cocktail, but I had really enjoied the quite atmosphere and the extremely kind staff. Unfortunately here in Japan cocktails are made with a measuring cup, so a lot different from the taste we are used to in Europe. Anyway the balance mix was ok and so the view... More

I visited this restaurant with my wife for a dinner. My wife ordered 5-course menu in advance. The atmosphere inside the restaurant was good for couples, and the servers were very polite. The course menus were very tasty with nice presentation, and I especially loved appetizer dish with scallop, white fish sashimi and ham, and pieces of the grilled fillet... More

It is located in the fanciest area of Osaka, high end for real. Very near the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. I could make a reservation in english from the hotel. The place was hard to find because there are three buildings with the same name, one for business, other for shopping and the last one is the Xex West elevator. The... More

If you are looking for a place to enjoy the stunning Osaka night view, this restaurant is for you. The food tastes good and the place has a very cosmopolitan atmosphere. As a sweet lover, I would recommend their custard pudding which really taste like the real thing. The pizzas also taste good and they offer a very wide choice... More

There are a lot of awesome places to eat in Osaka, but this is NOT one of them. Unless you are a Japanese businessman trying to impress someone. We ate at the Aburiyaki & Sushi An bar area of the restaurant and we found the food/sushi to be 'just ok' and definitely not worth the high price. We did two... More

Wow. I found this place looking for sushi in Osaka. I was a little skeptikal as I was lead to a highrise building. I made it up the elevator and as soon as I entered the Restaurant I was transformed into a different World. There was a swanky bar with a black man playing piano; singing. Japanese power couples sat... More
