Gifu (岐阜市, Gifu-shi) is a city located in the south-central portion of Gifu Prefecture, Japan, and serves as the prefectural capital. The city has played an important role in Japan's history because of its location in the middle of the country. During the Sengoku period, various warlords, including Oda Nobunaga, used the area as a base in an attempt to unify and control Japan. Gifu continued to flourish even after Japan's unification as both an important shukuba along the Edo period Nakasendō and, later, as one of Japan's fashion centers. It has been designated a core city by the national government.

This cafe sells souvenirs and local handicrafts. the atmosphere inside the traditional building is so good. I wanted to order the matcha swiss roll cake but it was not available hence I went for the scones and they were perfect! Coffee was great, service too!
We sat upstairs and had private room to ourselves with a nice view of the courtyard below and able to see Mount Kinka and Gifu castle from a distance.
I would highly recommend patronising this cafe if you are visiting Gifu old town.

For foreign visitors, Teppanyaki usually is a great food experience, but culturally disappointing, as most Teppanyaki restaurants are western style places. Not so at Senryu. Here the major attraction is the setting, in an old Japanese house alongside Nagara river, with a view on Gifu castle and beautiful Japanese Gardens. Food is served in individual Tatami rooms, fortunately with holes for your feet and cusions with backrests. More comfortale than sitting on chairs.
Food is prepared in typical Teppanyaki style at your table in a set menu. The steak is from the region, Hida beef, no different in quality from the more famous Kobe beef. The way of preparation is a bit different though, placing a huge piece of extremely marbled Sirloin on a bed of garlic and fat, covering it with a lid and searing for a while, before carving the steak up and grilling it to your liking on the teppan.
Although the food is excellent, what makes Senryu stand out is the experience of great Japanese beef in an extremely beautiful Japanese setting. Excellent service complements the experience. They also have a wine list with an adequate selection, but this is not the strongest point of the place. As one may expect, an evening here won't come cheap, but won't set you back more than an upmarket Teppanyaki dinner in Tokyo. However, your dinner at Senryu will be far more memorable.
If you are just looking for good quality Japanese meat, this can be found in a few other places. If you are looking for a full Japanese steak dining experience, it's hard to beat Senryu.

Yes, folk! The long lines mean something in Japan in any restaurant...take the hint ...." the food is delicious and worth the wait....
I'm an expat who now resides in this city (Gifu) kinda on the " fat" side because I'm always looking for the " next best plate" ...I would recommend this dim sum joint to the most finicky ぎょざ(gyoza) eater.... the soup inside is remarkable!...PERIOD!

Side note: the shrimp fried rice is the " bomb" ...is that too 2008?...

Select price point and the beautiful dishes will be brought out in perfect timing. My dishes were centered around seafood.

Kaiseki is a style of Japanese cooking, individual dishes of contrasting flavors displayed beautifully. Our Autumn Course was delicious. It started with a mushroom kanten, a clear soup, sashimi, eggplant in a dashi sauce, the main was Hida Beef from Gifu (marbled like Kobe beef) ending with a chestnut dessert served with real matcha green tea. The clear "teapot" is for cold sake (REISHU) Hanami Kura.
