Onari-machi 10-13, Upstairs (at Onari-dori), Kamakura, Japan, 248-0012

A small cozy vegan bistro uses vegetables from the local market; food is presented with a sophisticated style. Has a fixed menu of six courses, including choices from two main dishes and two pastas. Seating is limited with one table for four people and six seats at the bar. The owner prepares all the food herself, so when the restaurant is full, you might be waiting for a while between the courses. The owner speaks very little English, but you get an English menu. As of December 2016, does not accept foreign credit cards. Located 3 minutes from the west exit of the train station. Note: kitchen may stop serving 30-60 minutes prior to closing, check ahead. Open Mon-Wed 5:00pm-11:00pm, Fri-Sun 5:00pm-11:00pm. Last order taken at 10:00 pm.

exquisite food - Edit

This was by far the most expensive meal we've had on both our trips to Japan but it was worth the experience. Six small courses of deliciousness, but by the end was the perfect amount. Please note that it is upstairs. The first time we went we walked away cos we thought it was downstairs, which was closed.

Pros: Amazing food. Beautiful crockery. Very relaxing

Cons: Expensive. Took 2 hours to get through our 6 cour

Food too heavy and rich for my personal tastes. - Edit

I went for a special occasion. The owner was working hard to prepare the food, but it didn't agree with me. I ended up with a stomachache. I might just not be used to full course menus...

Pros: Prepared with care

Cons: Food too heavy and rich for my tastes

The Most Creative Vegan Food Ever! - Edit

We LOVED this place! The food was very creative, a beautiful fusion of Japanese and French cuisine. The dishes we tried were all like works of art. There was also a set course which is amazing value - Vegetus really could/should be Michelin stared!

Delicate, delicious and vegan - Edit


Chrysanthemum pesto? Smoked tempeh? Vegetus serves a 6-course dinner set for $40 /4000yen, that is incentive and flavorful, featuring seasonal local vegetables, grains, tofu, & a choice of teas, all served on attractive ceramic ware. The fall menu included Subtly spiced and marinated hors d'œuvres (fresh figs, eggplant, braised carrot& apple, etc), a main course (choice of two) & a grain course (choice of pasta or rice) and dessert. In our case, it was carrot cake and caramel tofu ice cream. Mmm.

The space is small, with 7 counter seats and one table for four, but no reservations are required. There is a nice selection of Japanese wines and beers. The atmosphere is relaxing and friendly.

Location: in a side street branching off the main shopping artery Onarimachi, at the corner with Ogawaren Patisserie. Vegetus is on the second floor , above Barchie 's Pub and Barbecue. It's only a 5 minute walk from Kamakura Station, but best found with a GPS map!

Pros: Delicious gourmet cuisine, Unusual and inventive , Seasonal

Cons: Set meal is $40, May be hard to find, Closed Thursday , only open for dinner other days
