Excellent French cuisine and drinks in a casual bar


Customers are seen drinking with smiles on their faces enjoying each other's company when entering into this bar. French radio is playing in the background and joyous sounds of customers fill the air. The bar seems tight in space at a first glance, but underground floor is filled with additional seats. At ONZE, locals with groups of 4-5 people, tourists in pairs or those stopping by after work by themselves are often seen. Excellent food and drinks are served in this French-style bar. ONZE has a...moren excellent ambiance inside with friendly staff and is located in a convenient location.

I really enjoyed the atmosphere! It's casual and locals as well as tourists can stop by with easy access. When I went around 5pm, several groups of people enjoying their drinks and food. The food is incredible! The menu consists of mostly french cuisine, like Aligot et Saucisson. It's homemade sausage with potato and cheese Aligot. It's so delicious!

Aligot et Saucisson
2Must Eat !
Aligot et Saucisson (homemade sausage with potato and cheese Aligot) / ¥1,500
Served on a hot cast iron, homemade sausage is on top of a bed of creamy and stringy Aligot. The sausage is pan-grilled to crispy. Excellent Aligot goes very well with flavorful sausage and it’s a great partner to a glass of wine. It’s also excellent t to share between two people.

There is an excellent offer for those who stop by for a drink by themselves alone. One plate is served filled with delicious menu items. On the plate are Jammon, pate on bread, Jambon De Espagnol, Tapenade, and one item from salad and main dish (please ask for available choices.) It’s a wonderful service for those visiting alone.
