This French wine bistro is as bijoux as it is tasty. Reasonably priced, delicious dishes and tucked away in the quieter back streets of Shibuya and it comes complete with an accordion music soundtrack—a great spot for a quiet European meal to escape the bustle of Shibuya.

The prix fixe menu is ¥2,800 for two starters and a main, with organic vegetables grown near the Yatsugatake mountains of Nagano, but it’s well worth the extra ¥600 for the homemade dessert. Everything we ordered was delish, with the homemade cheese and sunflower seeds a particular favorite.

Also a fantastic spot for lunch; the beef “hamburg” (Salisbury steak) with wine sauce is a contender for Tokyo’s best hamburg.

There is an English menu and the staff can just about explain the specials menu in English too.
