Visited on 2018-08-07 at 1230. For a party of 6 hungry adults, we ordered 2 pizza lunch sets, 2 additional pizzas, 4 additional drink bars, and 6 desserts = 12000¥. We enjoyed the pizzas, which are thin crust, full of ingredients, and about 36cm (14"). The unlimited drinks from the bar are nice. These desserts were tasty. Staff was friendly and professional.

Over the years we have been here many times. Great location in good weather as it is nice to be able to sit outside in a relaxed atmosphere drinking beer and eating pizza.

We visited Canal cafe when sakura was at its peak and were lucky to have made a reservation a month before. There was a very long queue when we got there.
We took a table on the deck and the view of the full bloom sakura and the river was very beautiful .
Food buffet quality, variety and taste was mediocre. Do be careful about taking the desserts. We took some using the plates provided at that section and were later charged an extra 500yen for desserts. They explained that we should have asked for a different plate since we had the buffet, only then would the dessert be free. One could also just have the dessert buffet. Its seems there was a notice but we couldnt understand.
It would only be worth visiting in Spring.

Waited 2 hours in que to get one of the worst pizzas ever. Tomato sauce was so bad, pizza undercooked and the whole place is for japanese people taking pictures and trying to row a boat.
