Called in, not much or any acknowledgment from the staff, ordered 2 beers which on the menu does not state the size of the drink, but given the cost expected a large beer.

But for two 1/2 pint glasses of local beer it was to 650yen each, which equates to £10 pint for local beer....., your having a laugh.

Felt the place was way to pretentious and perhaps we were not too cool enough to be there........we never went back and glad we did not order food at the same time as the drinks.

I don't know why this place hasn't been reviewed yet. It's a gem! I've visited Ishigaki a number of times and always enjoy eating, drinking and hanging out here. It's run by a husband and wife team and it has a lovely relaxed atmosphere with great music. There are also plenty of books, records, interesting objects and pieces of art to keep you entertained.

The menu - also available in English - is mostly local cuisine, but with modern touches and it's also vegetarian friendly. Since there just the one person working in the kitchen, it's not an enormous range of options, but that also means that the food is freshly cooked and with great attention to its quality and flavour. I've had a few disappointing meals in Ishigaki, some so-so ones, but I've always loved the food here and I don't praise places that don't really deserve it. The desserts should have a special mention too!

There's also a wide range of drinks to suit all times of the day and I'm English enough to be happy when I find somewhere that can serve me a good gin and tonic when the sun is, well, marginally over the yardarm...

Thank Patrick K
