A classy restaurant and cafe with a stunning view over the Seto Inland Sea.

If you have ever wondered exactly how far you’d have to go to find a restaurant making good use of the beautiful scenery Tokushima has to offer, look no further. California Table in Naruto City is a fantastic place with good food, a good view, good service, and good everything else.

As its name might suggest, the main fare of California Table is western style food. The menu has a wide range of common items such as steak, salads, a cheeseburger, pizza, pasta and other items, but they are served with both flair and volume. The prices might be a little off-putting for those looking for a casual lunch, but once the food arrives you won’t be left wondering where your money went.

One of the main attractions on the menu - the cheeseburger and side of chips.

Store Interior
One of the main attractions to California Table is the view. The restaurant stands on top of the mountainous ridges by the Seto Inland Sea, and provides a view out over the surrounding area and the bridge from Naruto to Awaji Island. There is an interior seating area and a deck, both very classy, and the view leaves nothing to be desired.

If you’re looking for a place to take that someone special, this is it.

Store Interior
While the menu leaves little to be desired, one of Natura’s main attractions is its riverside location. The store sits right next to the Kyu Yoshino River, and while the parking area sits right next to a main roadway the store itself is quiet and peaceful. Inside, customers have a wide view through large windows out onto the river, and there is even a small landing area and outside deck for those who want to enjoy the outdoors during the warmer months of the year.
