overall rating: 3-1/2 stars Yamaneko is a fun East Meets West informal dinner choice. Starters included some tasty mozzarella slices marinated with soy sauce and wasabi as well as a decent Caesar salad. The local sausage w/fries was savory, and the Thai green curry w/vegs was suitably spicy. Gnocchi filled w/local figs and gorgonzola cheese made for a rich ending.... More

After the long cycling tour we've been looking for a cozy place to relace. Been to the yamaneko and had the veggi noodles and carbonara. Both very delicious. Really cool place and friendly staff.

Great local restaurant/cafe with friendly staff. Staff will provide an English menu if you are unable to read the Japanese one. It isn't as extensive as the Japanese menu, but has more than enough to choose from. There is a range of food on offer, including pizza, pasta, salad and some Japanese options. The lunch set is good value and... More

Ask for the english menu if you cannot speak Japanese. Its a Japanese menu with english that has been written in by an English teacher working in Onomichi. Its a great way to experience some local food. Dont bother with meat dishes in Japan as the servings will be miniature. Sushimi and tempura are popular and affordable choices.
