Service: Excellent and very friendly
Facilities: great cleanliness overall
Strong points: Many local products be they from the land or the sea. Organic vegetables. Car park.
Many more restaurants in Shizuoka join the “Local Products” trend for the pleasure and health of their customers.
One does not have to explain why one ought to eat fully traceable food!
But we are on the very lucky side of Japan as Shizuoka Prefecture could manage to live on its own resources alone for at least 6 months, a feat unequalled anywhere in Japan!
Contorno is great place, not only for its gastronomy (naturally!), but because it is so well exposed to the sun in a quiet area not far from the sea of Mochimune whose harbor is famous all over the country for its shirasu/whitebait and other bounties from the sea.
And it has the enormous merit to be completely non smoking!
Their lunches are not only a bargain but a healthy joy!
All vegetables are organic by Mr. Nagomi in Fujinomiya City at the foot os Mount Fuji.
The above antipasto misto vegetables (except for the French cornichon) are all above-mentioned vegetables with a chicken-pork terrine and a shrimps-fish terrine.
The bread is naturally all home-made and served with a high quality olive oil!
For lunch I ordered this black bass (suzuki/鱸) from the Suruga Bay sauteed on its skin and served with Provencal-style organic vegetables.
The Missus opted for this delicious plate of prawn pasta!
beautiful colors! I managed to get a forkful!
And look forward to a great different dessert everyday!
And they serve the coffee the right way!

This is really nice indeed. I love homemade bread and this one looks great. I also like the black bass you ordered and also the pasta which is indeed very colorful and I bet it tasted even better than it looked. I too love to try a different dessert every, dessert being the thing I love most when eating. Thanks for sharing.
Everything was very delicious and I’mlooking forward to my next visit!
That is absolutely a lovely looking place. Only the fish smoke, which is how it should be! Beautiful and I can’t wait to go sometime this summer. Thanks and great photos. /Patricia
