“excellent choice of seafood”

Restaurant details
Reviewed 1 October 2014

went there following tripadvisor comment and were definitively not disappointed, back and forth from Rebun.
Excellent seafood over rice, with a truly amazing sample of raw salmon (although i must admit that i have not understood what I was eating : on the way back, i ordered salmon sashimi proper and got something much more comparable to usual sashimi fare, so i do not know whether my first sample had any kind of semi-drying treatment or what... it was just so sweet and melting.) excellent grilled fish too. we did not try to sample tabl eBBQ fish for the two of us, but that also looked pretty nice on the other table.
very good choice of restaurant for seafood; they offer wagyu too. fairly decent price too.
only restriction is that they do not have english menu, not do they speak english; and we were lucky to manage since wife reads Chinese.

This was one of the best meals we have ever had of any type of food. The restaurant shares premises with a seafood packing and processing warehouse and specialises in Robatayaki. We were given a full tour of everything possible with seafood and a grille. We arrived back in Wakkanai from a day walking across Rebun Island. tired and very hungry, and decided to find this restaurant recommended in a Chinese guide book. We walked South from the ferry terminal on the very dark seaward side road beside some very closed warehouses, and just when we thought we were in the wrong place saw a flashing sign announcing the end of the wharf area and the restaurant, which sits at the South side of the main wharf, a good 15 minutes from the JR station. We arrived unsure whether this really was it, and met a suited man leaving the restaurant. He assured us we were in the right place. This proved to be one of the owners. The other owners were sitting inside the now empty restaurant at the end of a hard day sorting and selling fish. We chose three Robatayaki sets. The staff had to confirm this a couple of times, and we later realised why. The sets are huge, and run through the whole selection of local produce, from seafood to steak, all cooked in front of you on an open grille. The prawns and crab legs were huge and the local steak was the softest and most delicious we’ve had in long, long time. We left the restaurant totally stuffed, and gave well deserved thanks to the staff and owners for an excellent evening. Superb !
