Lonely Planet review
Fish Man's decor is all post-industrial minimalism with lacquered plywood and big windows, all the better to show off the deft, unconventional presentations of seafood fresh from the Nagahama market across town: kaidan-zushi (sushi served on a wooden spiral staircase, ¥1500), tsubotai no misoyaki (miso-grilled snapper, ¥880) or a maguro hamburger served on a steel plate (¥980). There's no English menu, but English-speaking staff can help explain. Look for the banner outside reading 'No Fish, No Life'.
Afterwards, stop for dessert at Fish Man's adorable affiliated cake shop Henry & Cowell , just down the street. It also has a small selection of takeaway foods.
