Try the Lamb here served with an Italian pesto sauce. Bread and dipping oil service included but salads are extra. Straight up western style high end Italian restaurant with Japanese service.
They say, the restaurant concept is mixture of Taisho era and Western. I went for lunch a couple of times before and knew it's great place for having meal. We could see good Japanese garden with small pound over having lunch. This time I visited with my friend for dinner. The atmosphere looked different. They have Japanese folding screen on the wall and it gives off special mood. They also have a snug bar, so after we had a dinner, moved to there and saw a garden from different angle. When I went there a few years ago, there was non-Japanese staff who spoke English, but this time I couldn't find him. Price is not reasonable, but I feel worthy enough. Hope you can find its value. If you like it, you can have a wedding or have business meetings on their 2nd or 3rd floor.
Our meal was simply delightful. My husband and I were looking to treat ourselves to our last night in Japan and Kawabun did not disappoint. Our pasta was cooked al dente and the flavours were intense and aromatic. Our pork dish was amazing and both my husband and I commented that we didnt think a simple pork cutlet could taste that good. The memory of that taste will last a long time...
After my fifth business dinner at Kawabun over the last two years I find myself with mixed emotions as this is one of the top restaurants in Nagoya, with a great ambience, excellent service (almost too good as the wait staff hover too much to the point of being irritating and don't even think about pouring your own wine!), but the portion size for each "mini course" is just too small for the money...I always feel like I'm still hungry by the time I get back to my hotel. I kept asking for more bread this time so I at least felt like I had eaten. We also had a hard time finding a decent wine after two tries and two disappointing bottles we gave up. The food is well prepared, well presented, and for the most part tasty, but it's expensive and you must be prepared to leave hungry!
Great Italian restaurant and fantastic service!
