The Michelin Guide has consistently awarded more stars to Tokyo dining establishments than any other city in the world. I created this blog as my personal Tokyo restaurant guide, but I hope you will also enjoy reading it. If you have been to any of the same places feel free to leave some comments about your own experiences.

Cuivre, Roppongi キュイーブレ六本木

Cuivre is a small French restaurant located in a back street in Roppongi. If you blink you'd miss it as it's located up some stairs in a little house, well away from the main drag. This is the type of little neighbourhood restaurant that I love, and that Tokyo does really well - quiet and unassuming but with great attention to detail on the food and atmosphere.

However the most impressive thing is the value for money. I defy anyone to find a restaurant in the heart of a major city of the world where you can have a three course lunch including bread, coffee and a glass of wine for 2,000 yen or its equivalent.

Dessert - rum ice cream, "marron" cream, pastry chocolate and vanilla with pear and raspberry (I had already given the pear away when I too this...)
