We were looking for a night cap on the way back to our hotel (Kanazawa Tokyu hotel) and remembered that we had seen a place around the side of the hotel that looking appealing. We called by and received a very warm welcome from the...More

Despite appearing incongruous, the combination of Irish/Italian served in a cosy dining environment with exemplary hosting works perfectly. Hearty meals and wholesome banter dished out in droves by Tony and Momo- neither miserly with quip nor portion, the duo are nothing short of magnificent. Overlooking...More

In a tiny restaurant are two big-hearted people, Momo and Tony. Momo takes the orders and serves while Tony cooks and keeps the good tunes coming. We 6 thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would return. Feed your heart and your body; come to the Cottage.

Food was pretty good quality. Catering for vegetarian is a big plus. Not great value considering quite high cost and smallish portion sizes. Small and cosy inside, except was very cold. Welcoming husband and wife duo, he the cook and she doing everything else. All...More
