Service: smiling and very friendly
Facilities: overall very clean. Superb washroom. Entirely nonsmoking!
Strong points: French bio wines only by the glass or the bottle. Lunch.
La Vigne in Koya Machi, Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City, across from JR Shizuoka Station has just gone through a very welcome change!
First of all, apart from a beefed-up food menu they now offer a very reasonable lunch for Monday to Friday!
This was my third visit for such a lunch today on a cold day, even for Shizuoka City!
For once I couldn’t help order a glass of organic Mercurey red, a wine form my very hometown in Bourgogne, France!
This time lunch set!
The side dish consisted of home-made pickles, seared Italian salami, olive and semi-dried tomato and seafood salad in urchin sauce!
From another angle. Great local natural yeast bread, too!
Real comfort food!
Once again very reasonable (less than 7 Euros or 8 US $!), satisfying and yummy!
