Must try the crab pasta and boar sashimi! The pasta is one of the best dishes I have tried in Okinawa if not in the island! Great atmosphere with live performance when visit at 7:30pm! The restaurant also accepts credit card which is a plus for tourists staying at the resort nearby!

Inaba is just a minute or two from the end of our river tour. The tour company had booked us all a set bento bowl lunch. I didn't see what was on the menu. Our bento bowl had about 6 different items which were all tasty. Restaurant was nicely appointed. Small terrace area for outdoor dining.

Some dishes were good (pasta and pizza), but others were average at best. The service was ok and was a cheaper option compared with restaurants in the Nirakanai resort. We advice to reserve in advance.

Situated right across from the Nirikanai Hotel, this is a great option for a place to eat. Casual and with good food, we would recommend it. The crab pasta was great! But in fact all the food there was great.

This place is very popular and we luckily called in advance for a table. In the middle of no where, they have a very nice atmosphere and delicious soup. The wild boar sashimi was in season and I loved it! The snake soup was tough to swallow (psychologically) am memorable for sure. We are here for a week and will... More

This restaurant is owned by a master of the Sanshin-an Okinawa stringed instrument. The night we were there he played and sang native songs. It was beautiful! The food was great as well. My husband loved the Teriyaki Chicken and I loved the Okinawa Crab pasta. The homemade pickles with Goya were excellent. It was a wonderful experience and excellent... More

Wanted to try this place for lunch as we had a few hours to kill and an easy walk from Risonare. The wild boar soup set was good with two plain rice bowls. This restaurant also sold half bottles of wine - good white selection from Chile and France. The cost was a little high but it was the best... More

Delicious good, nearby the Hoshino resort, where we stayed and fantastic service! The boss comes out later at night to play his Okinawan Sanshin instrument.
