Gastronomic Destinations: Yokohama City-Piatto Bianco In Minato Mirai


Service: Smiling and kind
Equipment & Facilities: very clean overall. Shared washroom, superb.
Prices: Reasonable
Strong points: Oysters and seafood. Parties


Piatto Bianco is not that easy to find on the 2nd Basement Floor of Landmark Plaza Dockyard Garden Building in Minato Mirai in Yokohama Harbor, but it worth the search if you want to get away from the crowds and still enjoy a laid-back meal and drink.


The outside is a bit typical of a garish American-Style Italian Tratorria but the smiling service is definitely Japanese!


The staff was certainly extremely accommodating when we requested to change seats to get as far away as possible from some smokers.
It opens late by the building standards and their oysters make for a great snack with a good bottle of Italian wine.


And the big jar of olives you can eat as much as you want provided with the drinks is a great bonus!


We visited the place only for a quick fix, but we ended up staying longer for a full meal started with a very tasty smoked oysters salad!


Now, I must admit that the grilled oysters were very good, and I should know, being a Frenchman! LOL


We had quite some wine and we decided to sample one of their seafood dishes.
This plate of deep-fried prawns on a bed pf potato mousseline and tomato sauce wa a superb ide that the Dragon decided to emulate!

All in all very good value!
One of the very rare “chain” restaurant I would recommend!
