O.K., it's a little pricey, the ambiance cool, maybe austere (no table cloths), no hostess to greet you and take your coat, they want to put you at the worse table in the house next to the entrance, the restaurant phone rings a lot particularly early on, and the towel box in the toilette is empty, but we were blown away by the seven course Valentine (130E) dinner that demonstrated at each course that a real pro had conceived their elegant mixture of flavors, textures, and colors. Wine pairing was spot on and surprisingly reasonable.
The place filled to almost capacity with casually dressed locals and foreigners. Staff were pleasant, bi-lingual and often helped by Matsushima himself. The timing between courses was just right. Oh, I must mention the assortment of bread rolls which were repeatedly offered. Go there for that alone!
