The chef here could teach the French how to cook, and he's Japanese! You would expect to pay 3 times the price for this quality (especially in Tokyo), just top-notch amazing food, a lovely atmosphere, great service, superb selection of wines, faultless.

We had;

Starters:
Pate de Campagne
Some kind of olives dish (the name of which escapes me)
Assorted bread

Main:
Beef in red wine with mash (melted in the mouth, delicious)

Monkfish cooked to perfection
With a salad of lettuce, peppers, fennel, etc. (not the usual tomato and cucumber garbage)
Side order of Potatoes Dauphinoise

Dessert (just me) Creme Brulee

Half bottle of decent Bergerac, very nice, good AC.

Two coffees

Fantastic value at 10,000 yen (£65)

Definitely one of the best (if not the best) dinners ever. Even on a Tuesday night, we were lucky not to have to wait long for a table, but I'd queue up all night for this place!

I enjoyed a dinner with friends. They serve lovely French local dishes and good wines.
I do not think it so easy to find out a small restaurant like this where we can enjoy good French local dishes. It may be difficult to visit here unless we have a reservation.

Most likely one of the best French restaurant owned by a local. The place is not big and a reservation is more than advised. However, this is defintely worth it since the food is excellent (a little bemol on the accompaniment: too much salad, maybe) and the price is really cheap (from 700yen per dish)
