Reviewed 26 September 2016

Came for lunch. First of all the restaurant entrance is not easily identifiable; the name is on the side of the building and the actual entrance has only Japanese outside. Still, persevere through the door, and one comes upon a small restaurant with a raised eating bar at the back, where one watches the chef/proprietor at work. There seemed to be three different levels of menu on offer, at least at lunchtime, and due to limited time I was advised to take the simplest 2,200 Yen menu.
The meal began with a plate of mixed hors d'oeuvres - pork rillettes, a piece of cooked fish topped with an aspic jelly, assorted slices of raw vegetables, beautifully carved, some of which concealed a pesto-based dressing, and a mixed leaf salad, all laid out decoratively on a large plate.
There followed a sweet potato gaspacho, followed by the main course, in my case a piece of beef fillet with accompanying vegetables, all lightly cooked together in a skillet and completed with a few minutes in the oven. The beef, rare and tender, was topped with mustard seed and served in its own jus, the vegetables lightly al dente, each keeping its own particular flavour and texture.
The dessert was a tiramisu served with a ball of raspberry sorbet, topped with a fresh raspberry. A delight. It should be noted that there is choice of main dishes, and a good collection of fine wines, which can be examined in a cool wall cupboard that stretches the whole length of the bar. The bar chairs and the seating are from some exotic rosewood-like wood; care should be taken when leaving not to bang one's head on the top of the bar.
Superb cooking, Japanese servings of course, but quite enough. Real French cuisine, and excellent value.

We were "walk ins" on a Friday night. We were looking for a decent meal before getting the Bullet back to Osaka and we were not disappointed. We were 2 adults and 2 well behaved children. I got the sense that children did not normally eat here so I appreciated the chef extending that courtesy to our children. The restaurant was very accommodating to our needs and we had a delicious meal which I thought was good value too. A big thank you to A Tes Souhaits for being so kind and patient and for giving us a lovely Friday evening in Hiroshima.
