Simply amazing meal. Meat cooked on an open fire, home made ice cream. Chef has skills. Amazing. Definitely recommend eating here.
We randomly stumbled upon Bion after being told it was great by some locals. It’s a bit hard to find but well worth the effort. Food was amazing - and there was lots of it. Really interesting dishes as well with a mix of Italian and Japanese influences. Definitely recommend.
Wow! Once in a while you can be blown away by food at a restaurant. This was one of those occasions. The seafood was super fresh with local oysters and whelk particularly delicious. Other highlights included the stuffed whole squid and roasted rolled porchetta. We enjoyed the cozy setting and open kitchen, with Chef Matsuoka happy to answer any questions and discuss local food. We will definitely be coming back.
