Nenohi delivers first-rate food in a gorgeous setting, offering a nice mix of izakaya standbys (superb charcoal-grilled chicken, good-quality sashimi, excellent kakuni pork stew) and simple but unexpected original dishes. The spacious dining room is quite lively when the house is full - it reallly feels like you're dining somewhere special, not just grabbing a bite to eat.

The menu offers a better-than-average selection of vegetable dishes, and everything we tried was very good. Some highlights included cold stewed tomatoes, grilled broad beans, a roast whole onion served with peas, braised eggplant, and tofu dengaku.

Although Nenohi is a venture from the famous Morita sake brewery, located south of Nagoya, we were a bit underwhelmed by the sake on offer - it wasn't terrible, but not at the same level as the food. Overall though, dinner here represents good value for money - budget around Y5000-6000 with drinks, or around Y1500 at lunchtime.
