With fresh seafood from the Kii Peninsula, Kumano beef, and excellent vegetables, Shirahama is a must-visit for all foodies. For something new, try the dishes made using locally caught fish such as the longtooth grouper. The local sake and beer are also first-rate.

    You have plenty of options to explore here, including seafood restaurants, sushi restaurants, buffets, and izakaya (traditional Japanese-style pubs). If you get tired of Japanese food (unlikely but you never know!), head to a café, pub, or European restaurant for something a little different. Shirahama has uniquely delicious dining experiences to offer, so it's a good idea to arrive hungry!


    Ikesu Warouda

    A celebration of the delicious longtooth grouper

    Ikesu Warouda takes its name from the Warouda Stone in Kumano. Even before your meal, the open space with counter seats and small upper floor seats surrounding a huge fish tank set the scene perfectly.

    Since opening in 2017, this restaurant has become famous for its fresh seafood, including Shirahama specialities such as longtooth grouper, sea bream, and abalone, and it’s particularly popular for its ikizukuri (sashimi prepared from live seafood). There’s also an ocean-view sushi restaurant called Yata at the same location.
