Nikitatsu-An is the restaurant arm of a brewery. In this stylish old villa in Dogo, you can enjoy carefully prepared traditional Japanese food served with sake or beer brewed next door. There’s a limited choice of reasonably-priced set meals, so ordering is easy.


With its mild climate and proximity to the sea, Matsuyama produces a wide range of high-quality vegetables, fruit, seafood, and meats. This is reflected in the menus of the city's restaurants and hotels. Besides traditional dishes such as taimeshi — rice cooked with sea bream — Matsuyama is enjoying a pâtisserie boom, making the most of the wonderful citrus and other fruits produced locally.
