A building-integrated bright red Ferris Wheel stands in the commercial facility “HEP FIVE” in the middle of Umeda, Osaka. It is one of Osaka’s landmarks, and since the last boarding time is 10:45pm at night, it is a sightseeing spot that can be enjoyed even after night time dinner. Not only the night view of the glittering metropolis of Osaka, but also the structural beauty of the bright red Ferris Wheel is a highlight of the tour.

In Sapporo, Hokkaido, there is a thriving culture of “shime parfait”, in which people end the day with a parfait after eating dinner. While there are still few stores in Osaka that serve parfaits until late at night, “Florentine” is a place where you can enjoy a closing parfait.

Florentine parfaits are as gorgeous as works of art. The patissier creates them based on the theme of seasonal scenery and events, and each piece is carefully handmade from individual parts. The original rose cocktail is also as stylish as this!


It is recommended to make a reservation to come to the restaurant, but if seats are available, you can also enter on the same day.
