My family and I enjoyed 2 delicious meals at Ezo on our recent trip. We were told to book two meals and now we know why. It's a great restaurant. Very low key. Great atmosphere. Friendly. For kids they loved the ramen, noodle and fried rice. We loved the sushi, tempura and cod. It's a small place so do book.... More

After checking Trip Advisor, we decided to cancel at another restaurant and book Ezo for the last night of our trip. What a terrible mistake. The staff was pretentious, the portions were small, ambience was lame. It's set up like a fish monger with high top tables. The food was fine but wickedly over priced. And incredibly small portions. Even... More

Dear Jill D, I am very sorry that your experience at Ezo Seafoods was such a letdown and even more sorry that I wasn't able to pick up on your dissatisfaction before you left. Regarding service, our Japanese staff (and myself) do our very best to provide friendly local hospitality to each guest. If there was anything or anyone in... More

We left it too late to book in to Ezo seafoods restaurant and was not able to dine there so opted for a seafood platter takeaway instead since Hokkaido was well known for its seafoods. We ordered the medium size platter of Y6,000 and there was so much leftover for lunch the next day for the two of us. It... More

Ezo fully deserves its TripAdvisor rating as the best in Niseko. I cant really add more to what has already been said here by others but the care that James puts into sourcing his seafood shines through immediately. Everything so fresh and tasty, fantastic atmosphere and very warm hosts. this will be my first stop on my return to Niseko

We were recommended to go here during our stay if we wanted the best seafood. I cant fault this at all, it was right on the money, pretty amazing to be fair. Huge oysters and Crab legs and options for cooked or sashimi fish. The owner James was a really nice guy and very informative about all the seafood. If... More

If you're a seafood lover as much as I am, Ezo is a definite must try! The seafoods are some of the freshest you can find, and the oysters are some of the best oysters I've had in my life. It's sprinkled slightly with some sea salt, making it taste amazing even without the lemons. The crab legs were sweet... More

Ezo Seafoods just gets better and better. We have eaten here each year since it opened when we visit Hirafu Niseko, and most recently visited in January 2014 and again last night (21st March 2014). Each time the words to descirbe our meal are 'freshest seafood ever eaten', 'delicious', 'perfect', 'wow!' James and Keiko have Ezo Seafoods running perfectly to... More

This is a very small and casual restaurant in Hirafu's Mid-Village. The oysters, uni and scallop sashimi were fantastic. The grilled sole was also excellent. I will go back for sure, but given how much amazing food there is in town I might do an early seating there for seafood and then head on to have some hot izakaya. Food... More

We visited Ezo on 14 March 2014. We had fresh oysters, scallop sashimi, Hokkaido crab legs, tempura tiger prawns and grilled snapper. Everything was fresh and done perfectly. The boss and staff were friendly. Restaurant was cosy and warm. It's a place we'll visit again on our next trip to Niseko. Advanced reservation is a must! We enjoyed the food... More

Pluses: Wonderful range of fresh fish, great presentation, excellent service. Minuses: Took 3 days of trying to get a booking, their online booking service "bombed out" when we tried, very easy to run-up a large bill!
