Perfect Spot for Perfect Sunset, Cold Drink and Good Food

The afternoon sun sparkles on wind-swept waves that break at the beach below. Scanning just a little to the left, the tall buildings of Naha stand in plain view. As the sun sinks below the horizon, the scene turns from sunset relaxation to bright city lights contrasting with the darkness of the sea.

The place is the Sun Set restaurant and it offers a perfect spot to enjoy wonderful scenery along with good dinner and lunch specials. From the high second floor café overlooking Sunset Beach, one can enjoy a variety of Japanese plates and sip an ice-cold beverage, while taking in views such as these. The Sun Set restaurant is located just to the left of the beach as one looks out onto the sea.

Here one can relax in air-conditioned comfort while surveying the scenery through broad high windows. For a little more excitement, the covered terrace lends a perfect place to host a barbecue party with friends or business groups.

The regular menu consists of a wide assortment of Japanese dishes and dinner sets. Recently I sampled the Chinese lunch set which offered several tasty seafood and vegetable items for only ¥800. My dining companion raved about her entrée, the Parmesan Sunset, which was a tender chicken breast smothered in cheese and flavored with garlic.

Other tempting dinners on the menu were shrimp curry, white fish with cream sauce, beef and tomato in oyster sauce and chicken barbecue. All dinner prices were at or under ¥1250. The menu also features a children’s plate for ¥650 that has several different items sure to please a child’s finicky tastes such as spaghetti, fried shrimp, salad and a tomato-noodle soup.

The management takes reservations for the outdoor patio which can host barbecue dinner parties at a per-person fee of ¥2000. The fee includes a large serving of beef along with sausage, chicken, fried noodles and rice. The Sun Set also has a full bar to complement dinner service inside or out on the patio. Occasionally live entertainment is also featured at Sun Set. Look for listings on May 21 and May 27 when local band Kento’s Love Music will be jazzing up the place.

Overall, the Sun Set is a great place to take the family, or your love interest for a romantic evening. Since the facilities of Sunset beach have showers, one can easily get cleaned up and go the restaurant following a day in the sun and surf.

To get there from Route 58, turn towards the beach at the road just opposite of the main gate in front of the hospital at Camp Lester. Take that road straight to the beach area and the Sun Set is standing high on your left. There is a large free parking lot serving both the beach and the restaurant.

The Sun Set restaurant is open for lunch and dinner from 11 am to 11 pm. During the summer season, July and August, they are open seven days a week and throughout the rest of the year, they are closed on Mondays. Their phone number is 936-0077 and there is usually someone there who can speak a minimal amount of English for non-Japanese speakers.
