Service: Easy-going, smiling and always ready for a chat
Equipment and facilities: Very clean overall. Superb washroom. Entirely non-smoking!
Strong points: Southern France, Italian and Spanish gastronomy. Excellent wines. Great use of local products.
Just trying to find Kuroneko Tei in Hamamatsu city is fun as it is tucked away in a narrow blind alley and it is certainly worth the search.
Locals seem to be very happy with situation as it allows hem some privacy away from this very busy city!
Most regulars prefer to use one of the six seats at the counter on the first floor for a convivial exchange while some prefer to party on the second floor in all privacy!
The team: Chef/owner Akira Fukui/福井章さん and second chef Kazutaka Suzuki/鈴木一隆さん!
Wine lovers will appreciate the ever-changing range of reasonable and also superior wines coming from all the world!
As for the food it is constantly changing with the seasonal vegetables, fish and other ingredients while a basic menu is still available.
Whenever we travel all the way from Shizuoka City to visit the place we always order a big plate of fresh vegetable salad!
Spanish inspiration: oven-baked pig trotters and vegetables!
Italian inspiration: home-leavened dough pizza of a right size!
French and Italian inspiration: sausage, pancetta, ham and goat cheese toasts plate!
French inspiration: Japanese seabream/madai caught off the Shizuoka shore sauteed on its skin!
I will need a few more visits to introduce all the regular dishes!
Don’ forget you can patronize the place as a hidden wine bar, too!
