Yutaka Sawa

Meaning ‘good harvest’, this simple Japanese restaurant in the town’s main street produces consistently high-quality dishes that are slightly larger than the normal Tokyo-style offerings, which pleases appreciative local diners no end. They come back again and again for the royal tataki eye fillet of beef prepared with vinegar, wine and garlic, and appreciate the lightness of the tempura seafood and vegetables. All dishes are designed to be shared, from the exemplary sushi and sashimi through to the deliciously spiced stir-fried pork mince and tofu. Finish with saki or umeshu (sweet plum wine).
