The premises date back to 1949, making this probably Japan's first garden restaurant. Not that that's any guarantee of quality in itself, but Hibiya Saroh has managed to keep abreast of the times. The menu is a hodgepodge of Western and South-East Asian influences, from fish & chips to Vietnamese spring rolls, but the main draw is the beer. With Erdinger, Hoegaarden, Guinness and various guest beers on tap, Hibiya Saroh quite simply has the best selection of suds of any open-air drinking spot we've visited in the capital. Expect to pay around ¥1,000 for a pint. Note that there's no fixed closing time, but it usually shuts up shop between 7 and 9pm, depending on the time of year.
