If you have a passion for seafood and the freshest, definitely worth a go! Seafood platters, including Prawns, crab, sashimi,oysters, and I don't even usually like oysters! But they were so fresh! The staff were all lovely and the presentation of everything was fantastic. I was dreaming of seafood for a few nights after this experience. :)

I had the set menu and shared it with some of my friends. Although the presentation was lovely on the seafood tray, we were underwhelmed by the quality of the oysters. We believe one of our friends got sick from the oysters. The next plate was calamari. It was probably the best dish of the night, but the portion was... More

Can honestly say this is the best seafood I've ever had. Pick your fresh seafood, pick how you want it: cooked or sashimi, get a good mix of both if you can! The place is small, so make sure you book WAY in advance, especially if you have a big group. They also have a pretty strict, 24-hour cancellation policy... More

A MUST visit if you are in the area! I always love coming here for the chowder & the crabs…and always end up leaving after eating far TOO much of everything, as can never resist all the different offerings… Casual laid back atmosphere with great service & food supplied by the owner James Gallagher. Do not forget to book as... More

Firstly, we were wondering what to expect after reading some comments and the high ranking of this place. Mr Gallagher was friendly enough and introduced the seafoods available. One dozen fresh oysters, 2 tender grilled squids, 5 fresh scallop sashimi, 3 servings of thick cut and very fresh tuna sashimi, 2 servings of tasty fried smelts, 1 serving of shrimps... More

We had dinner here back in February this year. The seafood was very fresh, delicious and with a fantastic variety. They didn't try to up-sell us on the luxury items like the blue fin sashimi and advised us on some extremely delicious items in a cheaper price range that were just as good. We loved the atmosphere, its cozy, boisterous,... More

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
