Motomachi-bar, an easy going izakaya-style restaurant in the heart of Beppu’s nightlife district, specialises in Mediterranean cuisine with a sprinkling of Japanese panache. Its open atmosphere with breezily friendly staff serve up tasty and reasonably priced dishes, wines and beers that make it a popular venue, especially amongst younger clientele.

Its wide range of dishes, including entrees, pasta, pizzas, grilled meats, salads and desserts, are created in an open kitchen, which customers surround seated at a counter or at tables on a balcony. The latter give commanding views over the chef and his staff going busily about their work or, occasionally, taking a well-deserved quick rest with a glass of wine in hand.
