Excellent French restaurant on the tip of the Noto Peninsula. The Chef trained in Paris at Robochon and it shows. Solid technique, interesting combination of ingredients result in very tasty flavor profiles. His saba (mackerel) taco which you roll up yourself tastes fantastic. High acidity in the fish is paired with vegetables with different textures and dusted with olive powder.
The buri wwas seasoned for one week, for me too long, as it created an unnecessary softness.
The standout this evening was the duck with potato purée in Robochon style. Flawless and so tasty.
The wine pairing alternates between wine and sake, is well priced and quite good.
If you have trip to Noto, make sure not to miss this place. Sample the local lacquer ware and call ahead and order an extra portion of the Robochon purée.
