Hinodeya – the house of the rising sun. Quite poetic as restaurant names go. Japanese, too. In the land of haiku and raw seafood delicacies, people are attuned to the power of images. Hinodeya is located between the European and African quarters, and is an address to remember.

Packed lunch


Midweek, lunchtime tables should be reserved. You’ve been warned! EU civil servants come here for good food and quick service. But don’t worry: the speed of service has no impact on the quality.

A long line of chefs


Kazuhiro Higuchi comes from a family of chefs. He first worked in a major hotel in Tokyo, before Europe beckoned. Higuchi wanted to lay out his own stall, which he managed in 2003.

A bounty of aromas and flavours


We began with complimentary appetizers: a blend of soya, carrots and spicy chicken. This was followed by a delicious miso soup that was full of flavour. I chose one of the restaurant’s most popular dishes, the Tariyaki beef, served on a cast iron platter and a wooden board. The meat was finely sliced and just right – neither under-cooked nor over-cooked. The soya, ginger and garlic sauce was irresistible and was served with mushrooms, fresh vegetables and a bowl of rice. My dinner companion had the sushi lunch, a combination of colourful maki and melt-in-the-mouth sushi. Hinodeya is alive with the aromas of fresh fish and shrimp that have barely left the sea. Its food is sublime, its decor is subtle yet welcoming, and it boasts a terrace in the summer months. It cannot fail to charm.

Gabriel, 32 TENNIS PRO

I teach tennis in the city and also write about culture for a number of publications. I love to travel and meet people. My city? It's an improv concert in a down-to-earth bar, an exhibition built on a work site, a play performed in the heart of the old city... My little extra: combining sport and culture!
