A fine show, but I didn't enjoy as much as I thought I would mainly because I felt it could have done more with its' premise. Did like seeing the connections between characters through.

7/10

Is Victoria related to the Adel's family. That might explain her half elf.

Was a great show this season. I'm hoping for another season of this at some point down the road, though it probably won't receive one. I'd say it was probably the most relaxing series this season and easily one of my favorites, especially since it's rare for a series to make me want more after it's done. The dub was pretty good so far imo, and so I absolutely know I am going to purchase the dubbed BD copy immediately upon completion and release. I'm actually fairly curious where others might stand on the English dub of this series?

Day of Satur = The Day where the anime episode is released, i was hoping that they show how the restaurant is doing in the original world.

Pleasent end to a pleasent series. Nothing ground breaking, but a decent time pass.

Sometimes a bit too repetitive and predictable, but most of the characters we engaging and the way everything weaved together gave it a nice dreamy quality.

Glad I watched it on a weekly basis. I don't think this would make for a good binge show.
6/10 (but a close 7... maybe I will change my mind....)

Slightly hectic week

Solid show that was never really shit and never really amazing, enjoyable enough as a once a week show. Mostly very pleasant and will be a good but fading memory. Interesting concept carrying comparatively mediocre characters and subpar script. 4-5/10

Just out of pure enjoyment, I'll give it an 8. I'm not gonna lie, but even though were legitimate complaints and stuff like this being repetitive or just outright boring, it just kept giving me a nice smile and a warm fuzzy feeling on the inside. Doesn't help that this is one of the most beautiful series of this season to me. I honestly can see myself rewatching this. Wouldn't mind a second season at all.

Tasty looking pork soup... Aletta can't wait to eat it - but she has to wait till evening. :D

Oh, and that Alex half elf is not a bad guy after all... he's a strong hero, but still very much afraid of Kuro. XD

Sad that this great anime has to end... hoping very much for a season 2. No more weekly good food.

Score = 9/10

IF you didnt eat at least a few times during this show, then DOOM ON YOU! :P SUch a pleasant show, mixing high fantasy with gorgeous food presentation. AS I said before, its like GATE + Bartender and I dig it. Hopefully there may be a 2nd season that expands upon the two worlds interactions. r. 8/10, and a beautiful ending theme. PE@CE ^~^

Oh boy, I can't express how over-zealous I am right now as I finish one of the best anime that has come in the recent times. Yeah, probably the best till yet after Rakugo's S2 :')

Entering with the casual mindset, I really didn't expect what the finale actually had in store for me. It did pull off a story and almost every piece of the plot started to get come together. It was executed fairly well if I may say so~
If you take notice of the elf who was accompanying the great mage, you'll notice it was none other than the same mercenary who was responsible for that lion head beast's defeat. To actually see him in the last episode was surprise alright.
But, the most biggest revelation has to be roots of Master's origins. To think he's the grandson of the most brave hero of the fantasy world makes you realize it isn't a mere coincidence, that he some sort of connection to the fantasy world after all~

Well that's enough talk about content of the episode and go back to our usual discussion routine.
Nothing hits home harder than as much as the nostalgia of your mother's cooking. I actually teared up a bit when that beautiful emotion was incorporated in the finale. It kinda reminded me of the film, Ratatouille.
The one final sight of all the folks enjoying their meal in the restaurant Nekoya was a nice touch. Well actually not all, hope they showed more but the mere glance of them was enough to get by I suppose. Liked it.

I know I've said it countless times in the previous posts already but I guess one final time wouldn't hurt it now, would it? ;D
The charm of Isekai Shokudou actually lies in its serene and heartwarming atmosphere. The mere sight of different characters enjoying their meal in such a tranquil is enough to make you enjoy the whole show gleefully~
While the animation is already good enough, real props goes to music which made the watch all the more immersing. Gonna miss its wonderful OP/ED. And of course our main staff - Kuro, Aletta and Master too :')

The show is something that is ought to be enjoyed in your leisure every once in a while~
Well that concludes my thoughts on the anime. I'm really glad I was able to experience it firsthand. Definitely AoTS for me. It was truly a lovely anime!

I couldn't go through this whole series on an empty stomach. It was impossible. lol

It's weird, but it felt pleasant when I was eating while watching the episode with the characters in this series eating. Calmly enjoying food while I was enjoying food, whether with my two friends by me or not watching with me. They also often felt the same when eating by themselves while watching, based on what they've told me. It's really weird, but I liked it.

Great Show. I was always hungry every damn episode. The way the food is described with the solid animation didnt help either. I WANT MY CROQUETTE and CURRY!

Surprised that this was based on an LN. Could have shown more backstory with the characters.

Need more Kuro and Aletta :D

I've eaten microwave scrambled egg with tomato ketchup dinne, for at least 5 days after the lizardmen episode. :D

The fisherman x mermaid episode also has delicious looking hamburger steak. Made me have a craving for some.. @_@

I agree with some of you. It didn't feel like a finale at all.

With every episode it had the same vibe. There wasn't any heightened suspense or tension connecting episodes. It felt very simple but entertaining enough to keep me watching the next episode wondering what food and people they will introduce. I can't say it's spectacular but it was nice. It felt like a filler show. A nice anime to watch when you are sick of the hyped shows that have major drama. A change of pace.

What saddened me the most was Red Dragon's less screentime throughout the series, Still a good show though.

Agreed. Needed more Red dragon lady.



Whoa. Was not expecting all that backstory in the final episode. Came out of nowhere, honestly. Interesting connections, though.

This was an easy show to digest every week. Pun intended, I guess. I actually don't know what looked more appealing: the food or the girls. Either way, one of the better shows on Crunchyroll this season, since Amazon basically had all the killers.

This series has simply been delightful. Screw it. I'm adding this into the favorites. Hearing that lovely ending song and sequence one last time while seeing the restaurant itself and hearing that familiar door chime... sigh. I love it. I can already tell I'm going to miss this so much already. A very simple and relaxing anime, and that by itself, along with the great looking art, makes it a beautiful series that just kept putting me in a smile after every episode. There probably won't be another season, but if there was ever a slight hope...

It isn't a bad anime.
But it gets boring very quickly, especially if you want to watch more than 3 episodes per day.

Well, 6/10

A warm and pleasant anime, that last scene with them all together was a perfect way to end it. It was quite boring at times, and some of the customers had uninteresting back stories.

Will miss this weekly dose of calmness.
Aletta and Kuro best girls.

I already know I'll miss this big time. That ED music gave me such feels. This was so soothing and calm, always putting a smile on my face seeing the various characters enjoy their food while learning bits about them and seeing how they interact with others at times. At times this made me hungry since I didn't eat anything at the times. Making simple foods like spaghetti look so damn good.

I'm sure @GangsterCat just said that as an example of an episodic series, not necessarily something like this.

Anyways, there's something called Otherworldly Izakaya "Nobu" that was announced a long while ago that there will be an anime adaption of it. It seems to be a bit similar to this, except that you'll only see humans, it takes place in a Japanese pub instead of a restaurant, and it's not of the mystery genre.

I'm sure you are wrong. Bartender is basically something like this but with cocktail.

My god, this was just wonderful. Why did I not notice and watch this sooner? And now I want more, as greedy as I am. This felt too short, and the ED made me tear up knowing that this was the last episode.

I would have given this an 8.5/10. Definitely my most favorite of the season, tbh. I think this is the most underrated series of the season. Even more so than Princess Principal.

The kind of story telling and character connections in this episode were exactly why enjoyed the show so much throughout. Those little things they drop on you every now and then, just like two Sirens who made their home on the abandoned island Abel was on.

Now we find out that Master's grandmother was actually Yomi, the strongest of the 4 legendary heroes. And she got ported there after the fight with the demon. Also seeing that Alexander had a relationship with the Adelheid family was neat too. I don't know the exact connection, but it seemed like he saved the current princess' great grandmother from some fiery attack and that she was holding a child (the grandmother). Then he went back to fight in the war and by the time he returned she was dead. Perhaps that great grandmother was a motherly figure to him since he also mentioned his father?

The finale didn't really feel like a finale though. Story wise it was a nice wrap up with those handful of character connections, but that very ending with them getting ready to sit down and eat and it just cuts out, was pretty underwhelming.

I wouldn't mind a second season. There are plenty of more stories to tell and intertwine together within that other world. Many more characters connected and whatnot. It was an enjoyable SoL show. Probably could be considered one of those "healing" shows like Flying Witch.

That was a relaxing ride! I'm glad nothing bad happened to Master. That preview from episode 11 was worrying. I hope there's more. I want to see more stories from old and new characters. Can we see Aletta and Kuro go to Japan next, please?

Welp, this ended... I mean... It was nice, but honestly, all this has really done is teach me how important to have characters I can really get attached to.

So many characters introduced, quickly and pretty effectively, yet despite knowing essentially everything I need to know to understand the characters, the lack of time invested into those characters after their introduction leaves me unable to care for the characters much at all. And when I'm watching an anime where absolutely nothing happens, being able to care is kind of important.

There was nothing to keep me invested in this and wanting to come back every week except for my inner completionist spirit that wanted to finish it since I got so far in. Which is why I'm over a week late to posting this, I literally just finished watching it.

Despite that though, this anime was still quite nice and peaceful, wasn't bad at all and I did get a decent amount of enjoyment out of the series. And as for this episode itself, was a fitting finale for this anime I guess. My final score will be a 6/10.

so my curiousity cleared on the this episode.

the mystery why the door show up in another world is other than because of Tenshu grandmother who has been sent to that world, and it appeared she's the one who cast a magic to the door, since she's one of the four great heroes.

another mysteries that has revealed is that all the visitor are from the previous world Tenshu's grandmother lived in, even Kuro, the one of seven dragon are from the same universe, since those two heroes can sense "death" aura emits from Kuro.

what pleased me when watching this is the thought that our food are the best of all world, no one in the visitor's world can bestest the food from the restaurant.

I'd give 7/10.

Enjoyable anime, I love the mystery side of this door. The food seemed delicious and the boss was so kind.

When I went to Tokyo, there were a complete elevator about Isekai Shokudo. It was in Animate of Akihabara, but they surely replaced it...

Sad that its over. It may not feel like a finale,,but they revealed some good info about the restaurant.

Interesting to see the Hero's reaction to Kuro. Both of the heroes knows she's a whole different level and not to mess with. Not to mention she's a beauty in human form.

Sad to see the series completed. Not as relaxing as the other SoL anime but it has its charm. Hoping to see another season

Another surprisingly easy to marathon series, and this one was pretty great. A very comforting, relaxing series with fun stories and endearing characters. It felt a little like a mix between an anthology series like The Twilight Zone and a sitcom like Cheers. Every character got a little introduction story so most episodes felt different and new in that regard, but at the same time they usually became regulars afterward thus something like Cheers where everybody knew your name. I also got a little feeling of Shirokuma Cafe from it too, which I mean as a compliment. The food was always delicious looking, and watching the patrons enjoy it never got tiring. Honestly I wish we'd gotten another dozen episodes with these characters. Some other interesting interactions could have come of it no doubt, like that half-elf hero meeting up with the lion dude again. Honestly I was hoping that was gonna happen during the last episode. I don't have much else to say but I really enjoyed this series. Solid 8/10.

Oh, and that opening theme was really catchy! :D
