Good food and a hoot of a Movie buff mofif - Edit

It's true the menu is now all veg and we thought it was really good. Not a huge selection of dishes, but it's all locally sourced and they have seasonal dishes too.

Pros: Good food, Friendly service, On the beach

Cons: Brood menu

Bland food, few options, cool space - Edit

When you enter this restaurant, it's hard to tell where you are. The walls are covered with old movie posters and collages of actors and actresses like Cameron Diaz, Marilyn Monroe and Johnny Depp. It's a pretty cool atmosphere. Also, the windows in the back face a beautiful beach.

The food, on the other hand, is pretty bad . There are only a few menu items and they all seem designed to be hospital food. My friend ordered one of the set menus, which was curry with rice; that was probably the best menu item and was ok at best. The onigiris are big, but lack flavor and the salad is a sad little bowl half-full of overboiled vegetables with a tasteless dressing. The burdock sandwich was unexpectedly sweet. The dessert was a bland sponge cake made with brown rice flour.

Apparently, the owner used to have a steak and lobster restaurant, but after getting sick over and over again, he decided to change the menu and make it all vegan. That's a great first step! Now, please improve the food!

Go to check out the posters, but skip the food.

Wonderful Vegan Food - Edit

Despite what is listed on Happy Cow, this restaurant is 100% vegetarian, all food is vegan. I would have given this listing a 5 star review but it is not allowed for "non-veg" restaurants.

Not only is this place delicious and cheap but it's also a retro movie poster museum. There are hundreds of old movie posters and it's really neat to see them in Japanese. The ocean front view was breathtaking and the food was healthy and delicious. They have an English menu and were very kind to us. Highly recommended.

Pros: ocean view, retro movie posters, vegan food
