French Bistro Cuisine: Dinner at Ninosa in Shizuoka City!
Service: Kind and attentive. Very informative, too!
Equipment & facilities: overall very clean. Excellent washroom.
Prices: reasonable~slightly expensive
Strong points: Inventive and seasonal French bistro style cuisine. Great products. Short but excellent wine list.
Ninosa, in spite of their well earned reputation suffered from their somewhat distant location until they moved last year t the newly developed and highly popular part of Hitoyoda Cho near Komagata Street.
Which means it can be crowded at lunch time!
Dinners are a better bet although it might be a good idea to reserve, especially on week-ends!
The other day we finally managed to visit the place for the first time since it moved to its present address!
Dinner menus are basically a la carte although you may have a full course if you agree on it in advance!
Mind you, I do prefer to explore the menu board for a better choice!
Their wine list, although short is very solid with reasonably-priced to expensive offerings as well as wine by the glass!
Scrumptious seasonal quiche coming as a-toshi with the first drink!
If you are two of you I recommend the assorted starters as it will allow to taste no less than five different starters offered independently on the menu!
Very unusual white asparaguses served luciolla squids and wild mountain vegetables!
Splendid beef stewed in black beer! A must!
Top class creme brulee with home-made caramel ice cream!
And coffee served as it should be!
Looking forward to our next visit!
