Went to this place on recommendation by a friend and was very pleasantly surprised by the entire experience. The food was top notch and the couple that look after you in their home-style dining are so lovely. Would definitely return next time in hakuba.

A Japanese family enterprise who are clearly Francophiles. Reservations essential in the restaurant made up of 3 tables on the ground floor of their home. A set menu and a tiny wine list but a very pleasant evening nonetheless. More like eating in someone's home.

Had lunch there with the family and the set menu is good value for money and delicious. The place is a bit hard to find as it is situated among other houses plus the signage is quite small. But once you find it, the home style setting is very nice and cozy and the food is presented very nicely and... More

This is a lovely dining experience- a beautifully presented degustation menu and great wines from the short list. A unique setting too. If you're a foodie skier make sure you spend a night having the experience

This place is actually the chef's home... and he opens his dining room to you. Choose Japenese-themed or Western-themed full course dinner menus. Both use a lot of local produce, so there are East-West fusion elements no matter which way you go.... but always a great night out in Hakuba. Very intimate; great for dates or small groups; family friendly... More

During two weeks of skiing in Hakuba, we suddenly were made aware of Denenshi, which holds a café and a superb restaurant. We only tried the restaurant, which was absolutely fabulous. To make a reservation it is needed to make a call a day ahead of the planned visit because the chef buys fresh ingredients to build the fixed menus.... More
