There is a traditional western-style building close to Otaru canal which was built in the beginning of the 20th century. This is a restaurant called Bistro Branche where you can enjoy French and Italian dishes with exclusively selected Hokkaido beef and seafood. The owner, a big lover of Otaru, has a policy to always care about seasonal ingredients of Otaru. You will experience the amazing effect of the owner's policy in highly selected ingredients from the main dish to seasonings in French and Italian combining Hokkaido's and Western Europe's style of cuisine. For lunch, it has valuable courses where you can choose the main dish from meat, fish, and pasta (from 1,300 yen). For dinner, it provides courses (from 2,800 yen) and many kind of a la carte (from 950 yen), so its plenty of choice is one of the attactive points of this restaurant.

Made with carefully selected Hokkaido ingredients
In Bistro Branche, good-quality ingredients found in Hokkaido are used such as a expensive fish Sebastes landed in Otaru port, locally caught seafood like a kind of ray called Kasube popular among locals, and beef raised in Tokachi which is the center of Japanese dairy and animal husbandry.
Limited menu during lunch
We recommend Branche curry (800 yen), a limited menu offered during lunch time (only 5 per day). The rich and tasty curry sauce has plenty of beef simmered so much as to dissolve in your mouth! Lunch menu also includes a soup and a salad.
A dish with Otaru's seasonal fish
Our another recommendation is a dish with Otaru's seasonal fish (1,500 yen). This is a chef's specialty to enjoy Otaru's seasonal taste that you can eat only in the season such as local fish Kasube or a expensive fish Sebastes which is called as Hokkaido's sea bream.
