Had a glass of wine and it was about 8000yen. It is one of those prestigious restaurants that has been around for ages and I never know whether I should call it yoshoku(literally “Western food”) or French. The cookies here are very famous but you can’t buy them unless you are a member of this place or know a member willing to order for you. The day we went, only an old couple and us were eating on the second floor restaurant. Throughout the whole lunch, the smell of cookies was so mouth-watering, and we could see from our seats that people just kept coming and coming to pick up apparently pre-ordered cookies. We overheard the staff telling a customer that if you order now, you can get the cookies 3 months later…^^;;;; Too bad we have no friends who are members….Anyway, the food in the restaurant is not bad but a bit expensive for the quality. My duck and my friends’ fish dishes were all a bit cold when they arrived. Also I hate jelly…^^;;; This place is right next to the British embassy.
