When you feel like you need a little break from all the traditional local food, go to Fortune Garden restaurant and you will not regretted. It is a French restaurant that serves both lunch and dinner and both times are fairly busy, so it probably not for days when you are in a rush. The selection of the appetizers and mains was not huge but everything we had was delicious and perfectly cooked. Broccoli + avocado salad was tangy and fresh, roasted chicken with roasted onions and "special" sauce kept chicken extremely moist and the babette step was outstanding. For lunch there was a set menu for around 2600yen, including a 3-4 sample appetizer plate, silky smooth pumpkin soup, the main dish and dessert+coffee/tea. The staff was very helpful and friendly and spoke great English.

We arrived at 5:30 PM without reservation and were seated. Any later and they would have been full. Excellent meal, service and wine selection. The foie gras and escargot were excellent as was the bouillabasse as entree. They are closed on Tuesdays as I tried to go then after experiencing the first meal.

Probably one of the best western restaurants I went during my time in japan. Really great atmosphere. Food was fantastic - I had the crab croquettes to start with and beef carpaccio for main. Both really delicious! The service was fab also.

Stopped in to enjoy the lunch special. Great value two course lunch. I had arrabiatta, but the star was the dry ginger ale. I also have to recommend the excellent service because they took care to get our orders right. Atmosphere was lovely and I would go back.

This was a great find for a nice meal out. The food was delicious and the place has a lovely atmosphere. I couldn't fault the service and they were very helpful catering for a gluten free diet. Three courses, aperitif, and wine for two came to about €120, well worth it. Their online table booking is handy. The waiters also spoke good English.
