Very fresh and delicious seafood

Top rated restaurant often faced with difficulties in securing seats for big group. I only managed to secure 5 seats in one of the 4 nights we were in Hirafu. The address is confusing as it has Kutchan in its address which is another town some 20 minutes away but in truth it is located in lower... read more

As always the highlight to any Niseko holiday is dinner at Ezo. Food and service is superb. Some of the best oysters i have ever eaten. James and his team continue to show the way in Niseko. Don't miss out when there.

We visited Ezo the second time this year, and our memory served us well. This is one of the best seafood restaurants ANYWHERE. Fresh seafood, salads, and ingredients. Reservations are a must (sometimes 2 months in advance), but, as my wife said: "I always leave here happy!"

As you'd expect. I visited with my girlfriend who is a seafood fan. The oysters were very good, the tuna excellent and the scallops great. There are also vegetarian options on the menu if you don't eat seafood. All in all, a very nice, cosy restaurant, but make sure you book as it's very small and understandably busy.

Reservations are a must. It's cozy and unpretentious, and the food is spectacular. Seafood--and food--as it should be: Fresh, perfect complements but minimal adornment. Great place to unwind and enjoy a great meal with friends.

It is the greatest, the freshest and the most enjoyable casual seafood restaurant in the world. All the fresh seafoods are on a seafood display and you can give your order to James (the owner) and he will prepare them for you. The fishes, oysters,big scalops, fish soups, salads etc are the freshest you can get and are from Okaido.... More

excellent small bar / restaurant but only if you really like sashimi and crab/fish dishes… theres little else. The sashimi was fresh and tasty and the hairy crab was awesome. Pricey for a small meal, but thats the deal for seafood on the ski fields

We have been here for the last 4 years and the food has been consistently fresh and very good. James always has some different and special every year. Limited days to sample different restaurants but this gem is not something we miss any year. Highly recommended.

We booked on line and it was very quick and easy. It's a must to book early for January. The food was lovely - freshly shucked oysters, squid, clam chowder, the biggest scallops you've ever seen and fresh sole pan fried to perfection. We were very, very happy with our meal and James and his staff were friendly and attentive.... More
