Great food but be prepared to possibly wait a long time! Took 2.5 hours for a few pizzas and salads...I would try this place again because the food was really good, I'm hoping maybe they were just understaffed the night I went.

This restaurant was a true relief after a day visiting Kamakura. The food is healthy, tasty, inventive and cheap. The atmosphere is cosy and the music is good. And they have free wifi!
